A knight in worn full plate rides atop a mighty steed. The stallion looks at you and then the knight turns as well and, lowering a lance in your direction, he charges

A False Knight has all the appearance of a soldier on a warhorse but is in fact one creature. They graze the plains in small herds or groups. The “knight” is more often for show than attack, with males with larger more robust “riders” attracting the females. Other times “jousts” over territory is another use of the knight. The territorial streak is what often causes False Knights to attack other creatures to drive them away.


Female False Knights will likely employ spring attacks, attempting to lead the offending creature out of the herds territory. Males prefer to enter the fray and use full attacks.

Powerful Charge A False Knight deals 3d8+15 damage with its gore attack when it makes a charge.

Lance A False Knights gore attack comes from the rider's lance. As such it acts like a lance in some respects. It has a reach of 10ft and cannot be used to attack adjacent enemies (though it can attack them with its hooves and bite). It deals double damage on a charge (this is already taken into account in Powerful charge).

Knighted A False Knight has prehensile bundle of hardened skin and bone on its back that looks like a rider in full plate with a lance. The False Knight can use this rider to attack and protect itself from harm. The rider is considered to have the mounted combat feat, a ride skill of +9, an AC of 20 (touch 12, flat footed 18) and 23 hp. The loss of this rider (though detrimental during mating season) does not actualy harm a False Knight though it can no longer use its gore attack. It takes six months to regrow a rider.

False Knight seems like a good name to me.
What would be the standard attack if they lose the rider?
