Description (Initial Observations): (Mount) Daycuts are four-meter tall bipedal birds who have no flight wings, but are covered with large feathers. Once properly trained, a Daycut will tolerate a saddle, but prefers a rider who rides bareback. Daycuts can be found in most geographical locations and come in a wide variety of plumage and colors to match their native surroundings.
Reactions: No known interactions
Behavior: An opponent who wishes to attack a weaving Daycut does so at -2 dice if the Daycut is not carrying a rider and -1 dice if they are carrying a rider. Once in battle, daycust are quite fierce and loyal. May are the accounts foa Daycut who died while standing over its fallen rider, protecting him, instead of fleeting to safety. Inline some other mounts they have no ability to pick a rider backup and return him to safety.
