I'm going mad here, are there any stats for non-MD horse-driven wagons anywhere in the entire Rifts line, or even stuff folks have found from real life? What if I want to have my Mutant Horse with Biped: None pull all his stuff around on a wagon or cart? I could do with SDC values, weight (which becomes relevant when calculating speed), cargo capacity and/or passenger capacity in terms of both number and weight of passengers. Specific vehicles I can think of needing are:

  • Cart
  • wagon (both covered and open, Wild Western and Medieval-European styles)
  • Gypsy Wagon
  • Chariot
  • Prison wagon (basically the same idea as a Gypsy wagon, but more heavily armoured and with less furniture inside as it's meant for prisoner transport, and not any measure of comfortable living)
  • Stagecoach

plus any more that anyone feels I might have missed would be wonderful, thankyou.

Have you checked the Palladium Fantasy RPG books? As far as horse stats, check out the Monsters & Animals book.

I've checked every PFRPG book, I can't find stats for any wagon, cart or similar vehicle. It's not the stats of horses I need, but thanks for the tip - that book does contain some very good stuff :)

I just checked my TMNT sourcebooks and there's nothing about wagons in them either. I'm assuming you checked the ATB main book.

Yep, that was the second place I looked after all my PF books.

Nothing found in the BTS book or Dead Reign books.

I did a search of past topic threads and other people have asked similar questions. I guess there are stats for gypsy wagons in RIFTS: Mystic Russia.

Yeah, the Gypsy Wagon is ... not a bad start, but it's still missing a lot of the information I was looking for. No weight for the vehicle, and no indication of passenger capacity (in addition to/as part of the 40 tons of cargo). Plus it's not clear whether the 40 tons of cargo is something a non-magical equivalent could carry, and everything's in M.D., though looking at it, most of the numbers wouldn't be completely unreasonable transferring 1:1 into S.D.C.

I guess you are going to have to Google information about wagons to find out weight and passenger capacity. This seems like something that someone would need to research and write up homebrew stats for. No, I don't think you're going to want to carry 40 tons of cargo. Most wagons require at least 2 horses to pull them.

Yes, I guess I am, and then adjust the sizes and weights to account for larger-than-human sized animals... I was just trying to see if anyone had already done it.

Not that I could find, no.

Honestly, unless your adventure is taking place in the old west, the dimensions of your wagon could be whatever you want it since it's not like anything in AtB would be exactly the same as those used in the 1800's, which seems to be what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a wagon pulled by a single mutant horse, I doubt that you'd be looking for the stats on a Prairie Schooner style covered wagon, but more of a Single Horse Carriage or Buckboard. Unless your character is a pretty beefy horse. :D

If your wagon is going to be wooden, SDC would be pretty low in comparison to a small car. However, in AtB, your wagon could be the remnants of an old pickup truck or utility trailer.

Not sure how best to calculate how much weight you could pull in a wagon, but you'd want to include the weight of the wagon itself.

Here are some info links:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckboard

I think it comes down to what you intend to do with the wagon as to what size you would need.
