Show Notes

Do you like horses? Do you like the idea of charging into battle atop a mighty steed? If you don’t like horses, how about a pegasus or a dragon? No? How about riding around on a party member’s shoulders? In this episode of the RPGBOT.podcast, we discuss mounted combat both in DnD 5e and throughout the history of Dungeons and Dragons, as well as drawing comparison to Pathfinder 2e’s handling of mounts. We discuss the current state of the rules in 5e, including issues with the mounted combat rules and challenges around handling things like centaurs, intelligent mounts, and riding on your party members’ shoulders.

For more on mounted combat in 5e, see our Practical Guide to Mounted Combat.
