stable - a firm and solid environment for your mount


check [stabled] {horse|camel|mount}
stable <mount>
destable [my] mount
retro <mount> to be {more|less} docile
raise <dead mount>


When you're done riding your mount, you can put it away in a stable where it will be cared for by the finest of stablehands.

Mounts in stables will be fed and cleaned automatically. Any illnesses that naturally lessen over time will also lessen while they're stabled. However, the fee to destable your mount is higher the longer it's been stabled. Be careful not to stable your mount for too long, or your mount will be repossessed to pay off your debt!

You can destable your mount at a different stable from the one you stabled it in - a stablehand will bring your mount over.

Some stables also contain a shop counter that sells supplies.

Stables also offer retrophrenologist services - at a stable, you can adjust the docility of your mount, adding or removing points from its other traits in exchange. Naturally, this will give it a concussion, which may require treatment.

If your mount dies, you can get its ghost raised from the dead at a stable. Note that this will cause more severe resurrection sickness than getting it a Resurrect from a priest.
