Can my PC have a pony?  Please?
Varak:You tell the mangy, pointy-eared gortok, in sirihish: "What, girl? You say the sorceror-king has fallen down the well?"
Ghardoan:A pitiful voice rises from the well below, "I've fallen and I can't get up..."

Look, a pony! No. Don't look.
Ohhh, the Sun King. I'm gonna meet the Sun King. Oh no! What'll I say? 'Hi! Hi, Sun King!' Oh, boy!

The ontological fallacy of expecting a pony at the end of the day, well, that's what the mount seller sells, same as a butcher.  See, the mount seller, he encourages your capacity for the absurd--an animal that doesn't exist in Zalanthas. Then he tells you it's on sale.  Always a buck to be had doing that, and it's such a desperate sense of entitlement, isn't it, to have a goddamned pony in Zalanthas? "Look at me, I own a pony!"

The butcher, he knows what's up.  At the end of the life of all creatures, mushed up, chopped and scattered...we all look the same.  He'll tell you he's selling you a pony steak, and you believe it, because the alternative is too grisly to accept.



Fine.



You can have a pony.
