The Prancing Pony (Equus diffundentur "horse that prances") is a tamable monster that likes to play more than it does to fight, but once a hero manages to tame it, it can become quite aggresive due to being in captivity.
Despite their general fear of horses, halflings love the Prancing Pony, for some reason associating it with beer, good times and dark rangers. Was that a pint I saw?!
This unique monster was first sighted in France, while a group of tourists were visiting a beach where the Pony was found disguised as a heap of pink seaweed. It changes color from white, regular pony color, to bubbly pink during equinoxes.
The name Prancing Pony came from the fact that the Pony loves to prance around. Its favorite color is pink and it likes the opposite sex just as much as it likes faeces. They have a penchant for eating gold as well as artifacts. Occasionally, they give their heros a ride, or an excuse to run from certain impending deaths.
Taming the Pony
Once tamed by a daring (or naïve) hero, these capricious creatures (like any other tamed pet) will gain a "pet personality" once it reaches level 3 & will randomly change every 3 levels gained afterwards. The personality will be displayed next to your pet's name surrounded by quotes.
A list of all possible Godville pet personalities can be found under the Pet Personalities Godwiki.
Unlike most tamable pets, it's not considered a Strong Monster. Other non-strong pets include the Ballpoint Penguin and the Ninja Tortoise.
