Talk:Unicycle (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
As a mount?
In a current campaign I'm playing a rather insane little bard... And I'm using a unicycle as a mount (although I dismount before combat) What would the stats be if I'm riding it around mundanely? --Gruegirl 22:52, 4 January 2008 (MST)
- Well, every DnD mount I have seen is always a living beast (horses, dragons, etc). Automatic machines are a futuristic conception and never fit in the usual DnD game, although there are exceptions ofcourse. A unicycle requires the concentration and skill of the rider to stay balanced and in motion. Its not like a wagon or normal mount, where the rider can be at ease for periods of time. If I were your game's DM, I'd have you make a Balance check when you first mount and then a Balance check whenever you make actions that require part of your concentration (its not easy balancing on a unicycle and slashing opponents or casting a spell, for instance). Its all really up to your DM. Why not fight on the unicycle? I'd have you make a Balance check before your turn and if an opponent successfully hits you. Any failed check would leave you flat on your bum or prone. Mayhaps also trying to remount takes a move action. Lol, but I dont see the advantage except it does fit a crazy little bard's idea of fun. --Chainer 18:13, 5 January 2008 (MST)
