Compel Rider – Instead of attacking the demon horse can compel a single target to mount its back, at which point it will gallop off tirelessly for hours or days over land, sea and sea, effectively running its rider into exhaustion. The Demon Horse must succeed at a POW vs. POW check to compel. Each 1d6 hours, the rider may make  a POW x1 check to dismount wherever he happens to be.

Breathe Fog – Instead of an attack the demon horse can expel clouds of fog from its nostrils, creating an expanding foggy area. This begins as a 10 foot radius circle, but each round the demon horse Breathes fog in the same place, the cloud expands by another 10 feet in radius. Anyone in the fog, other than the demon horse, has -20% on Fighting, Spot Hidden,

Preternatural Swimming 10 – The demon horse can swim faster than crocodile.

Flight 16 – The demon horse can fly by running across the sky, possibly treading the fog it breathes.

Nightmare – Once the demon horse has seen a person, it can invade her dreams, leeching her of vitality.
