Hmm there could be a gap in the creative market for a mouted unit that would suit the dwarfves the best. Possibly a stone bear sort of creature something reasonably compact but broad and powerful. And there could be a gap for accient lore where the dwarves originally had to share the space in a treaty with these mounts when they entered the caves many thousand years ago and over the time they became so intergrated in the cultre you take them as being part of the dwarven race in general and not a seperate entity. Where the mount can live many generations longer then the dwarf so become almost like a family hierlome to the most prestigous of the family's


would be pretty easy to put in place and let the devs have some fun comming up with a mount.

Good ideas wills. I like 'em. The vicous cave bear mounts. Or even giant cave sloths. Fossils are hilarious when the produce things like that.

Merely suggesting. mean i´d rather take dwarven chariot then fruity ponyriders. Plus lets just compare ponies with regular horses and wargs, they´r way out of their league. sure the battleboar war chariot won´t be as strong as other races cavalry, but it will create a whole new way to use cavalry instead of just charging them in flanks. say you´re losing a battle with the dwarves, or you´r archers are gonna get flanked, you can use the oil barrels + fire to create defensive DoT Barriers to defend your units, or attack ofc.

Perhaps the Dwarves are too proud to rely on an inferior beast?
I think in Age of Mythology they stipulated that the Norse Hersirs would dismount before combat, if they rode to battle.
That could set Dwarves aside as unique (not as if they need it with your plans for underground fortresses ), but what would compensate it?

Only way to compensate the loss of cavalry is by buffing their infantry, else you´ll feel the disadvantage dwarves will have against the other races.

Hmm i fear buffed infantry would make the army to slow to do any real sort of warfare but defence. Although a set of 1 buffed infantry would be good.. E.g. pikemen.

but with regard to the mounts if they do live in mountian fortresses etc. It is unlikly chariots would be used. Being developed for use in the plains etc. It would be far more likly to have a living creature capable of negating the treacherous routes. In my opionion anyway.
