You found: rider's sword (sometimes)
You've learned a new Technique: Brace Spear (when you have a spear weapon)


Hall of Paintings: Forsaken Moor; and a combat encounter unlocked through the Moor


If you do too much damage to him in a single pass, you can knock him off his horse:

<You attack>. The rider cants to one side under the weight of your blow.

And at the end of the round:
The rider topples from his mount, shattering to dust on the museum floor.

(Changes opponent to Skeletal Horse)

You can only get the sword if you manage to kill him without doing too much damage at once. Doing more than ~15 damage is virtually guaranteed to knock him off, doing less than ~6 never seems to. Seems to be slightly random in between those values (but knocks are much more common with higher numbers). Damage type doesn't seem to matter (melee, ranged, fire and etheric tested for sure, not sure about the others).
