An excellent and utilitarian set of devices. FRPGers tend to treat their horses like motorcycles that graze upon grass. If the horses have personality, and function more like real horses, then they will see the use of many of these brasses. Go to Comment

IMO: And we have another example of why anonymous posts are bad. If he/ she had to enroll, they might of taken to time to find out what the site was... rather than what the odd search engine result brought them to. Go to Comment

Very good, yet simple idea.

for a detriment, what if (for the wind charm, for example) all the other horses traits are the same. A horse running 3 times faster will fatigue 3 times quicker.

A horse charmed against fire means it could run into dangerous battles, and so on. Go to Comment

This is good - if you want, you could start a thread in the "ideas" section of the forum to generate more ideas for different horse brass charms. Go to Comment

Thank you very much for the feedback. I'll see about starting a thread about more horse brass. As for gamers treating horses like motorcycles, I can't agree more. I myself was guilty of it until meeting my wife to be and her horse. They both taught me alot about horses and hoe much they have a mind of their own. When 1200 pounds of animal decides the play 'run away from things we think are scary' there isn't much a rider can do but hang on, or bail off. Go to Comment

Or even take the time to read the entry above, at least two of the charms offer no signifigant in game advantage other than protection of the horse and its health.

So a big fat razzberry to anonymous Go to Comment

Specific Armor charms.

Cooling Touch Charm: protects horse against extreme heat, and fire, magical and mundane

Jove's Favor: tin charm shaped by a lightning bolt that protects a horse primarily from natural lightning, but also potentially from lightning based attacks. In real life, lightning kills quite a few horses and cattle a year.

Hermes' Blessing: gold charm that grants the horse magic resistance, and perhaps immunity to cantrip level magics.

Vulcan's Steed: This large iron charm in epic fashion renders the steed invulnerable to iron weapons. Such things clatter off of the animal's hide like twigs. Go to Comment

and to common folk, it just looks like a pretty bit of jewelry for the horse. As an extension, this class of item could be used for horses, hunting dogs, wizards familiars and so on. Go to Comment

Chameleon's Charm
This tumb sized piece of tourmaline set in copper wise is braided into the horse's forlock so that it lays against the center of their head. This potent charm causes that horse's coat to change color to match the predominant color in the area. In a forest, the horse would turn a dark green, sandy brown in the desert, or all white on a snowy tundra. Rumors abound of a more advanced version of this charm that allow for multiple colors to be emulated.

Appaloosa's Charm
Much like the chameleon charm, this string of three pieces of quartz string together with braided horsehair causes the horse who wears it tied to their mane to match the color pattern of the horse that provided the hair in the charm. If a black horse provided the hair, the the horse wearing it becomes black. Patterns for appaloosas and paints are not copied exactly, but are fairly close.

Milkmaid's Charm
Not every rider can handle a warhorse or a spirited stallion, but putting this small pewter and ivory charm on the mane has the effect of calming even the most virile and enthusiastic of horses enough that even a milkmaid could ride him. Go to Comment

One on the mane, one in the tail. You can only wear one magic ring on each hand, so this is the logic I used. Go to Comment

Oy! My players and I made magical items for horses a number of years back. You have inspired me to dive into my "Horribly Huge Pile of A4" ® and re-read that old stuff! Go to Comment

This is a great concept, but needs more additions, to justify its impressive vote and HoH total, imho. Too bad I cant think of any at the moment :) Go to Comment

Gypsy gold does not chink and glitter. It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.

A sweet idea, perfect items to reward a paladin, or any other character with a mount. A few of these will be making an appearance in my Fantasy campaign. Go to Comment
