At first glance, a destrier looks like a well-sculpted, muscular horse. However, closer examination reveals that this 'horse' is a carnivorous predator with sharp, pointed teeth and the ability to easily run down prey. Lore about destriers suggests they have an infernal origin, but this is unsubstantiated. What is known, however, is that destriers are extremely fast, agile, and mean. When used for Overland Travel on a Highway, Road, or Trail, a destrier's movement per hour is doubled. (Yes, at very high levels a Destrier can out-run a Teleport.)
