- This is the Rare Silver Steed Horse. These were
to be put into the Good/Evil System and basically were to be a
Paladin's War Horse. They did exist and were available for a short
time when they spawned the same way Nightmares did in the T2A Plains.
They act just like Nightmares and breath fire. OSI used the same
Nightmare code and simply altered the color scheme to give them
a white hue.
- Finally, many people claim "GM's DELETE these on site!"....and
everyone had a friend of a friend who was riding one and it disappeared
right in front of them. All this simply isn't true. Do the they disappear
in game? Yes. Are they being deleted by a GM? Usually No. The truth
of the "Whitemares" is that they are on timers (exactly
as a Paladins War Horse was in AD&D), after a certain amount
of time (24 hours? 48 hours?) they simply disappear. This explains
why many people who were riding their Silver Steeds in the middle
of nowhere when they would disappear. Or why "I rode it for
weeks, and then one day it town in vanished" - the timers simply
expired and the horse disappeared. The value of such a beast I have
seen vary from 5-10 million gold. If used sparingly, (taken out a
few minutes at a time), the steed could almost last forever. For
example, if the timer is 48 hours, and you only take him out for
events for 10-15 minutes of game time a session, that gives you at
least 192 uses.
-Update October 28, 2003: GMs will delete Silver Steeds on sight.
They have been deemed illegal to own by OSI.
