Since you asked... I want a huge mutant chicken with beak pecking power, and since I bet I'm not the only one with thoughts you now have a thread to post in Wink

Or better yet! Sasquach! He could carry you around and punch things!

Plus it's extremely improbable!

Okay this is a bit more than "a different mount", but what if certain types of mounts affected the travel cost of different terrain types? Kittybikes might be more nimble in mountains, and lower the cost for them by 1, say, while something amphibious (like a turtle mount) would lower the cost of river/ocean squares (but maybe cost more to cross "land" types?)

Maybe like:
Kittybike (an other fast, nimble mounts) -1 travel to mountain, +1 to swamp, +2 to river/ocean
Pony/Gelding: +1 to desert, swamp, and river, +2 to ocean, -1 to forest and mountain
Bulldozer: -1 to swamp and forest, +1 to mountain and river, +2 ocean
Budget mount: no bonuses, maybe a handful of negatives

Other mount types, not yet implemented (but could be? Wink )
Turtle: -1 river/ocean, +1 everything else, +2 (or some amount) defense
Giant Crab: -1 river/ocean, +1 desert/mountain, +a bit of attack, -quite a bit of defense (strike the weak point for massive damage!)
Giant Hawk (or Griffon?): -1 or 2 travel for everything, also drop attack and defence a significant chunk (hard to fight on the back of a flying beastie, what with the wings and all)
Sandworm: -2 desert, +plenty everything else, doubles req. finding (the spice must flow)

Obviously my sense of game balance is way off, but you could practically make a mount for EVERY terrain type that gets a bonus in that type and a penalty everywhere else. Whales in the ocean, gators in the swamp, goats in the mountains, etc.

Okay that's enough rambling for today. TTFN!

I've always liked the idea of a flying magic carpet. How about a magic flying log? I don't want to meet a person that doesn't like a good log, much less one that is both magical and flying.

If not a flying carpet, how about a flying pet car?

How about zombie powered vehicles? chariots, boats, broken down cars, etc...
To better understand my suggestion I would recommend reading "Drunken Philosophy"
Just go to www.drunken-comics.com

now would be a good time to start reading it for entertainment as well... it's about to get more updates... hopefully.

Self-Propelled Swivel Chair!
Just put your feet on the ground and push off. You'd have to travel backwards, I suppose, to get the best momentum, but think of the fun you'd have!

I'd love to have a Zombie Bulldozer!
All the fun of a Bulldozer, plus the zombie +2 jungle turns bonus and the Zombie defence bonus!

Speaking of hampsters...

How about a giant hampster bubble, you lose ALL of your jungle turns, but you can move faster, and you are less likely to get attacked by anything while moving around.

Pogo sticks
roller skates
Magical slip'n'slide- it unrolls infront of you as you glide along on your belly. Any attacks fail at first cause they fall down.
Portable black hole to take you instantly from one spot to another.
A UPS truck- mail yourself where you want to go.
Tarzan vine highway- you get a map and know where all the vines are to swing along.
Riding lawnmower- not fast but good in a fight
Combine Harvester- like a BIG riding lawnmower!
a rickshaw- you can have it as an upgrade to the cheap mount
A Cat bus like in My Friend Totoro
broomsticks!

What if there were mount that could give you health and/or attack with you while in the world (maybe in jungles too).

Improbable Dragon
Giant blender
Warp Driver
Turbo armor (armor mixed in with mounts)

A Sloth!

you'd lose a few points of travel, but you'd get the ability to dodge attacks by moving deceptively slow!

Well, ok, but you'll lose all of your travel and all of your jungle fights every day.

Are we playing Corrupt-A-Wish? Laughing Out Loud

Besides... that wouldn't work either...
I would buy it in Kittania, then get myself +5/6 jungle fights, level to 15 (during the same day), continue to fight until i get enough ciggies for two bikes like that... Sell that bike, buy a kittybike, destroy the drive... get to kittania, buy that bike... etc...

Basically... the person with most drive kills would be the person with most free time... heh...

And that would be very terrible indeed.

I'm thinking of writing a Joker horse that would, eventually (and I do mean eventually), and at great expense (and I do mean GREAT expense), and throughout serious inconvenience (and I do mean SERIOUS inconvenience), give a series of buffs that would essentially make you almost invincible. Mounts can evolve into more complex things (like the whole Budget Horse -> Son of Budget Horse thing), and this one would evolve through twenty different forms, all of which give different buffs, four of which give negative buffs, and then they'd all tie together in the end.
