Cavalry (mechanics suggestions)

Hey all,

Im back with more ideas, this time in regards to cavalry.

In a lot of games, (im specifically remembering Fire emblem but there are other TBS) horseman seemed to be glued to their horses. I was…

Well, first i guess I should ask whether there will be cavalry. Im assuming yes.

Anyway, I was hoping that horseman will actually be able to dismount when fighting on horseback isn’t helpful. (when fighting pikemen, or fighting indoors (caves).

Of course, this would lower their ability to cover large areas of ground, but it might increase other stats, like defense. Those who are more knowledgeable about the pro’s and cons of being on horseback can advise.

But anyway, I think this option would add a lot of tactical depth to the game and I welcome feedback.
