D'oh. Yeah, that was a bad one. Anyway, I still would like to differentiate Praxians and others who are born in the saddle from those who are merely good cavalrymen.

I think that treating *mounts* as followers (without taking up a space on the list of ten things, maybe even) and allowing the mount or the ride skill to augment the rider's mounted abilities allows this differentiation.

Does anyone have any other ideas on how to go about this?
