"Jorvik is home to beautiful and majestic breeds from around the world, but the most amazing horses of all can only be found on this island. Horses with manes and tails in rainbow colors beyond imagination, horses that shimmer like jewels or burn with the fury of the elements -- these are the Magic Horses of Jorvik!

The horse known as "woodear" hails from damp forests of Evermist in the far north of Jorvik. It is said to have evolved from Fjord horses that spent a little too much time in bogs rich with pandoric energy.

Long thought to be unrideable, it was only after years of research that a Druid herbalist named Hazel Stamets realized Woodear doesn't experience sight and sound like other horses, but rather communicates with its herd through a mycelial network in the very ground of Jorvik.

Woodear has a distinctive mulchy odor that, while intense at first, really grows on you. It loves nothing more than long rides in bogs and wet forests. When kept in a stable, Woodear prefers a box close to the shower stall.

Like other Magic Horses of Jorvik, Woodear shows its true colors in wild places and will conceal its appearance in populated areas. Whether in its fungal form or in disguise, Woodear rides just like the Fjord Horses it is descended from."

Unique features[]

Color Changing[]

The Woodear is a magical horse with the special ability to change colors. When the player presses the "h" key or the magic horse icon on the horse's character sheet, the horse will change from its neutral colors to its natural (magic) colors and vice versa. The horse will not change colors during races or while the player is unmounted.

Colors, Pricing, and Location[]

The Woodear is sold for 850 SC and can be purchased during Halloween in the Galloper's Keep. It comes in one variation.
