ornate carriage is a favourite of nobles and the wealthy. A normal carriage
is designed for speed and utility, giving little attention to appearance or
amenities. The ornate carriage, while just as speedy as a normal carriage, spares
no expense on comfort or grandeur. The wooden exterior of the ornate carriage
is intricately carved, painted and lacquered, with gilt edges. The axel and
wheels incorporate large springs, making a ride in an ornate carriage a smooth
and pleasant experience. A gilt frame on the door provides room for an embossed
family crest or personal sign. The interior of an ornate carriage is equally
impressive, featuring richly upholstered seats filled with goosedown, rather
than the rude benches of a normal carriage. For an additional 100 gold pieces,
a fan powered by the rotation of the ornate carriages wheels can be added,
providing the occupants of the ornate carriage with a cool breeze. The fan can
be disconnected when the breeze is not desired.
An ornate carriage is a
symbol of opulence and privilege, and entitles the owner to certain advantages
in that regard. Owning (or even riding in) an ornate carriage grants a character
a +2 circumstance bonus to any Diplomacy
skill checks made against a member of the noble or wealthy classes, as such
people will recognise the character as one of their own. Owning (or even riding
in) an ornate carriage will also grant a character a +2 circumstance bonus to
any Intimidate skill checks made against
a member of the commoner or labourer classes, as such people will recognise
the character as one of their social betters.
