HA HA! funny, right?
But, I'm COMPLETELY Serious. Here's why:
- Unicorns exist on Nirn
- They are VERY rare
- The high price of this item will keep it rare, if existent at ALL
- The question of "Has anyone ever seen one" is TOTALLY appropriate for the unicorn
- It would be a relatively quick mount to make
- If anyone ever bought it, ZOS would make the easiest $1K they ever made.
I just like the meta-game idea of people questioning their existence and maybe THINKING they saw one but wasn't sure. I think 100,000 Crowns is high enough that there probably isn't anyone that would be willing to shell out the money for it, but low enough that someone with a bunch of burnable cash might buy it for kicks and grins.
I would not want any unicorn to be available in this game since the only unicorn that appeared in TES was the one related to Hircine's quest in Oblivion and is more than likely just an illusion created by Hircine himself. I understand that unicorns are cool (like dragons) but in my opinion, this would be as lore-friendly as dragon mounts would be, meaning: not at all.
However, the frost horse is everything but lore-friendly and has nothing to do in an Elder Scrolls game in my opinion so... why not, since it does not really affect my game experience.
