Re: Mount ideas for the vertically gifted
Rhinoceros. Arms & Equipment Guide, pg. 81. 290gp for a trained one. Nothing really says "Screw you, goblins!" like charging into a mob on a rhino.
Alternately, Triceratops. Same book, next page. Slightly more pricey for a trained one at 17,000gp, but again. Screw you, Goblins!
~Othar wanted me to know so that I would tell men that Othar the Storm-Rider had died well, and I had told him to keep a tight hold of his sword so that Othar the Storm-Rider would go to the feast hall in Valhalla where all warriors who die bravely go after death. These days, although I am old and feeble, I always wear a sword, so that when death comes I will go to that far hall where men like Othar wait for me. I look forward to meeting them.~
