Temple of the Sky God: Flying Mounts
By Bart Caroll
Now, the utility (or at least, the constant utility) of a warhorse in many D&D campaigns might be debatable. As we've written before

In a game of not infrequent dungeon exploration, a warhorse presents certain challenges. Is the horse turned away at the entrance, like Bill the Pony outside the Mines of Moria? Is it forced into the dungeon (which recalls the old Sage Advice
question about how one’s centaur character could possibly climb a ladder)?
