Ur Epona

Ur’Epona, also known as Epona’s grandchildren, are horselike
creatures that can move from plane to plane. Descended
through several generations from Epona (a being variously
described as a horse-goddess or even the Primal Horse), they
derive their power from her.
A creature without any predetermined color, this equine’s
hide changes color with its mood, ranging from pure glistening
white to deep sable.
Ur’Epona do not speak, but can understand any language
spoken to them.
An ur’Epona seeks to avoid combat when possible, though
it defends itself and its offspring with dedication. Its hoof
attack is treated as a secondary attack and adds only 1/2 the
ur’Epona’s Strength bonus to damage.
Plane Shift (Sp): Once per day, an ur’Epona can use plane
shift, taking itself and its rider to the plane of its
choice. An unwilling rider can resist with a
DC 17 Will save. Caster level 9th.
Although intelligent,
an ur’Epona requires
training before it
can bear a rider
in combat. To
be trained, an
ur’Epona must
have a friendly
attitude toward
the trainer (this
can be achieved
through a successful
or wild
empathy check).
Training a friendly
ur’Epona requires
six weeks of work and
a DC 25 Handle Animal
check. Riding an ur’Epona
requires a normal saddle.
An ur’Epona can fight
while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also
attack unless he succeeds on a Ride check.
An ur’Epona can be taught to use its plane shift spell-like
ability to travel to a plane of the rider’s choice. Treat this as
the same as teaching the ur’Epona a trick; it requires one
week of work and a DC 25 Handle Animal check.
Carrying Capacity: A light load for an ur’Epona is up to
200 pounds; a medium load, 201–400 pounds; and a heavy
load, 401–600 pounds. An ur’Epona can drag 3,000 pounds.
