|Animal||Speed||Pack Load||Draught Load||Work Day|
|Dog *||6.5||na||160||60 by sleigh|
|Reindeer||18||na||300||50-100 by sleigh|
Note: Since Sir Garnet didn't campaign in places where some types of beasts of burden were in common use, we've added a few of these, as indicated by an asterisk. Pack Load includes weight of the pack; Draught Load includes that of the vehicle; na, not applicable for military usage.
Thought I add to this - the work days, in NOD hexes, would work out to ...
Ass: 2 to 3
Dog: 10 (by sleigh - impressive)
Horse: 2 or 3
Llama: 2 or 3
Mule: 2 or 3
Reindeer: 8 to 16 (again, by sleigh wow!)
The sleigh pulling animals are quick - could be a good magic item - a sleigh that makes its own snow. We usually went by the rule of thumb of 1 hex on foot, 2 by mount, which isn't too far off, though maybe 1 hex on foot, 3 by mount is better.
Military load is AFAIK "safe load for rugged terrain". Same could be said of speed. I guess all those stats (esp. the "Work Day") can be improved hugely by pushing the animal to strain itself. Possibly to death. :/ReplyDelete
Of course, once the animal dies, its draught load and work day really fall off.ReplyDelete
