Calm steed is a technique that appears in SLASH'EM, SlashTHEM and Hack'EM.

All Yeomen start the game with knowledge of this technique.


When used, the technique adds one tameness point to the player's steed, up to a maximum of 20. Using the technique will set the timeout to 500-1499 turns.

Due to a bug in older versions of SLASH'EM, the technique had no effect;[1] this bug is fixed in the version of SLASH'EM hosted on Hardfought.
