Rather late on this point, but it wasn't just you Ven, this bounced a
while ago, but my server still hasn't fessed up about it. Could it
have been an intermittant suberic problem?

Sorry, I meant to run this by Becca and forgot.
Could it be _Prince on a White Horse_? It's from the hero's point of
view - he doesn't know his name or where he's from. He's on a horse
who keeps talking to him but saying that horses don't talk. Then a
girl (named something like Gamael the Red) pops up in the air and
gives him a sword and tells him to go slay a dragon. The dragon is
made of metal.
Is this enough to stir up any memories?
