#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 12, Room 14

 This section of the larger area is the home to the graves of many horses. 

Room 14

There are Undead Horses and Nightmares here.

Undead horses are skeletal remains of normal horses. They attack much as they did in life, only now they can also be turned as Wights.

Hit Dice 6+6 (33hp)
Attacks 1 bite (2d4), 2 × burning hooves (2d4+2); Breath smoke

Nightmares are the steeds of night hags and other demons, black horses with flaming hoofs and mane. Their breath is a cloud of brimstone smoke, which causes any nearby opponent to attack at –2 (saving throw applies). These horrible creatures can become incorporeal and travel between the planes of existence, bearing their evil/chaotic riders.

(Section 15: Nightmare, Swords & Wizardry SRD)


Again, GMs choose as many as they need to challenge the PCs.

This would be really good spot for a victim (or victims) of a set of Grim Rider's Spurs to show up, having been laid to rest with its corpse-steed.
