Uh, maybe it's just THE HUGE STINGERS COMING FROM THEIR BACK!!!  That and it would be difficult to design.

How, exactly, would it be difficult to design?

And I didn't come up with this idea; I am not looking for a vote, here, either.

See? Easy to design.

You can't fit a large horse in a small square.

Count me as a Nay for all mounts.

Keep yourself informed, im2smart4u. We're talking about mounted riders on scorpions. If pets, why not war vehicles?

So the scorpion stabs his stinger through the rider to hit his enemy? That seems dumb.

We would never see a scorpion rider, because they would be in the clans.  The clans are neutral or allies in the game, so what is the point of an enemy who we will never fight?

You're digressing. That didn't make much sense, and if you're using it to suggest ideas similar to the catapult, nay. When you destroy said war vehicle, it's likely the people in it will die. Scratch that. I don't want to be stuck in a battle with at least one enemy with mental immunity. That's my main concern.

I NEVER VOTED YAY, NOR DID I CALL FOR A VOTE!!

The relations with the Rubats are yet to be decided, are they not?

As with a horseman, it is not the scorpion that attacks, but the rider, with a weapon of their own.

I'm not digressing; you're the one not making sense, Chrono. I can obviously see that although a Siege Ballista makes perfect sense, given the technology available to the Mechanics, it didn't fly.

I am referring to anything ridden in war as a "war vehicle" (Vehicle: any mean by which something is carried or conveyed), and I think if scorpions can be trained not to kill kids in the clans, they could be trained not to kill their riders.

Also, Chrono, if you don't want to be stuck in a battle with "at least one enemy with mental resistance", you'll have to refuse to play the game; many enemies have mental resistance.

Holy Namelesskitty, you're only expressing how the general community is prebiased against this idea. What do you mean, "It makes no possible sense, nay." It makes plenty of sense, and if they have backstories like friendly characters riding the scorpions so you can ask about them more, so as to not be in the dark about them.

Buggy, if people were not so prejudiced against the idea, I think it might fly, but however, since everyone "knows" that a scorpion rider "wouldn't owrk", it's probably best to lest the idea die. R.I.P., scorpion rider.

You don't get to tell us when and when we can't vote.  Everyone, but you was ready to vote, so Bugfartboy tallied the vote.

As with a horseman, it is not the scorpion that attacks, but the rider, with a weapon of their own.
Then what is the point of riding a scorpion?  People ride horses because of their speed, yet a scorpion is just as fast as a bandit.

Maybe they use their speed of 3 all the time when ridden by a willful rider, as opposed to just in lunges.

And Ducky, you can't say that you hadn't said yay or nay. You had been officially defending the idea, therefore it was counted as a yay seeing as you had yet said otherwise. And Ducky, scorpions are as fast as a bandit, they pose no tactical advantage to the enemy, and are difficult to design. And by unanimous vote, you were creating so your vote is a minor, the idea was rejected and turned down. Now please move on.

Ducky, it seems that you need to cool your head off.

Firstly, read what I wrote. I did say immunity, not resistance. Those are two different things. If you want to quote, do so properly, like this.
I don't want to be stuck in a battle with at least one enemy with mental immunity.
Unless you're saying that machines have minds, I will have an automatic nay vote on machines.

Secondly, read what you wrote.

Does this make sense to anyone else?
