    Nothing kills idea output faster than vicious criticism. It's better to have someone that submits a torrent of ideas, with many of them so-so or bad with a few good ones mixed in, than having that person not submit any ideas at all.

    It'd be nice for one of the emotes suggested by @Taraus to be put in and act like the staredown emote. So if, for example, you rear somebody on a medium horse while riding a legend steed, their horse shrinks back in fear.

    Actually, on the topic of riding, I'd like to see other stuff added for flavour and flair. Not useful in combat, but in terms of 'showing off' with a mount.

    Stuff like...

    rear

    Carefully balanced upon (his|her) steed, Rider tugs back on the bridle, causing (mount) to rear back in an intimidating display.

    or

    prance:
    A (mount) begins to high-step and prance, Rider controlling the playful dance by tugging expertly on the reins.

    or (for winged/flying mounts)

    unfurl:
    With a prompt from Rider, a (mount) suddenly unfurls it's massive wings in a showy flourish.

    emote (With a prompt from,) $mountID suddenly unfurls it's massive wings in a showy flourish.

    Now. Cos everything that exists needs GMCP added. Can we get 'mounted' added to gmcp tags? Or is it already a tag? Y'know, like the 'l' and 'L' attributes for wielded left/right... we could get something like 'R' or 'M' for something you are currently riding?

    ETA: For those who don't understand, this is so you can then just 'know' what mount ID you are on, scriptably, and save yourself the trouble of changing it in your emote each time. Or, y'know, add '$mount' as a 'special' thing you can target.

    Also, I see this particular idea being off-topic within this thread. Didn't think of that at first, lol. Great idea, needs it's own thread though.

    Would have to do it so that you only got that attribute if you were the one riding it, or could see the person mounting/dismounting (e.g. people with clarity/lifevision if it's being ridden by a shrouded person).
