The Horses from The Legend of Zelda and The Witcher are Hanging Around Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Epona and Roach thought they'd get a little R & R in medieval Europe, and you're about to ruin it for them.

Thematically, The Witcher series and Kingdom Come: Deliverance couldn't be more different. The former is an RPG steeped in fantasy and folklore, while the latter tries to present a realistic take on medieval Europe's lifestyle and warfare.

But the veil between dimensions is thin. Maybe that's how the famous horse belonging to Geralt of Rivia wound up taking her retirement in one of Deliverance's stables. A redditor named "orhansaral" found Geralt's horse—Roach—in Deliverance over the weekend and shared their discovery with The Witcher subreddit. If you make an inquiry to the stablemaster, he says "She's a pretty good horse, though she's got a mind of her own. I bought her from some odd polish fellow. He said now he's settled down with a wife, he's afraid she'd want him to stuff her. Them Poles are a perverse lot."

"'Get back to work?' Neigh, good sir!"

The "stuffing" the stablemaster references suggests Geralt hooked up for good with Yennifer, a sorceress from The Witcher who has a thing for copulating in odd spaces, most infamously on the back of a stuffed unicorn. Geralt seemingly surrendered Roach rather than doom her to an after life as a weird sex prop. Making love on the stuffed corpse of a regular horse seems a bit too Normaltown for Yennifer, but I guess there's no reason to entertain the risk. Either way, Roach seems to be enjoying her time off. Here's a better look at her, in case you're thinking of buying her yourself (or engaging in a little healthy horse-theft).

Link's steed, Epona, also seems to have found her way into Deliverance's universe. Don't even think of adopting her if you can't play a flute, though. Kingdom Come: Deliverance isn't for everyone, but the people who like it, like it a whole lot. It's a complicated game, so don't be afraid to check out our Deliverance guides on combat, lockpicking, alchemy, and more.
