Dalimil the Horse Trader

The Outpost trader Dalimil has come to 'Souls this month. She has horses for offer:

  • Gelding, bay. Docile and reliable. Traded to Shore Stormbringer
  • Gelding, grey. Sweet and very strong. Traded to Dante Centri
  • Mare, bay. Older and matronly, prior breeding experience (more valuable).
  • Mare, black. Cautious. Traded to Morrigan Hound
  • Stallion available for STUD only: Kveta, black. Affectionate and very smart, Kveta is a playful stallion who is every inch a ladies' man -- he is sweet with all other horses and a very good choice for inexperienced or skittish mares, as he is supremely gentle in all he does.
    • Anathema
    • Stud opportunity

Request Rules

  • Requests are NOT A GUARANTEE of approval. The 'SA approves or denies these requests based on the application received and in the order of applications received. Don't assume your horse is owned until you receive a PM confirming the claim.
  • Packs may request horses for communal stores. Pack claims, however, are considered after player claims. We usually give 1-2 weeks for claims to be made, after which time we consider any claims made by packs.
  • Your character may claim a horse if they already have a horse companion. Like pack claims, however, these claims are considered after those who already have a horse.
  • Keep in mind the typical description of a Svantevit horse.
  • The horses are offered as is -- changing genders, descriptions, personalities, etc. is not permitted.

Quick question -- are we allowed to thread with the NPC & horses if we are not going to be getting one? I would like Cahan to ask her some questions about his current horse/just look at the horses in a thread. :) He would not be getting one for himself.

Yep! Anyone is free to thread with any of the bNPCs (board NPCs) that occupy the Outpost -- just make sure you read through their information so you're roleplaying them realistically, etc. ^^
