    Character Mounts In FG

    Hopefully an easy question, but how would I go about handling a character's mount? Do I need to treat it as a PC and create a character sheet with equipment and armor?

    In my opinion, if you are going to use mounts as if they are characters, risking death, etc. then yes I would set them up as a PC. If they are just a background prop I wouldn't bother. It's really a matter of choice on your part. You can use NPC sheets that you drag and drop to the player (onto their portrait when they are logged in) but I find this more cumbersome than just making them PCs.

    Jab, do you mean by manually entering the data or is there a way to do this automatically?

    There's a button on one of the tabs on the NPC sheet.

    Is that ruleset specific John? I'm not seeing such a button in 5e or DCC rulesets.
