    Species factor to Speed for humans is 5, I thought, not Size (so Giant doesn't give 6)?

      Quick ref chart in vampire 2ed says its size, but other say species factor of 5. So yeah you're probably right. One less in base speed in my calcs then.

        You can instead add +5 from Praestantia that pushes Dex up to 15.

          Would Acceleration, Ground Eater, and Velocity Control interact at all? Or would it just be what ever gives the biggest bonus?

            Granted, it's a flight speed and it (on average) lasts less than a minute, but Beasts can take that 51 (you forgot fleet of foot's +3) and multiply it by 11 with Wings of the Raptor. Not as crazy as Mages but half the speed of sound ain't bad

              They do things differently, so they should interact. Ground Eater is a straight boost of Potency to Speed, Acceleration multiplies it, and Velocity Control exponentially increases speed (not the Speed derived trait). Combine them in that order after Attribute boosts and...?

                And you'll need to dedicate another spell to making sure you aren't vaporized by the air resistance as you go streaking along at a substantial fraction of the speed of light.

                Possibly more than one

                  Might just be a single Forces Shielding spell. Iirc Shielding usually makes you outright immune to non-supernatural damage that doesn't come from attacks.

                    2E has largely done away with 'add extra spells/arcana to make your spell actually work as intended due to technicalities'

                    IMO, you wouldn't need this any more than you'd need Mind to enhance your brain's abilities to perceive the world around it in order to successfully navigate at that high of a speed. That was very much a first edition thing. Same way you don't need Mind to let yourself interpret radio waves into useful data after you cast a spell to let you hear them.

                      That's what I was thinking. Which would make a speed of over 307 thousand completely doable. Which is really just silly when you think about it. Fun, but silly.

                        But like he said, that is speed not Speed. At that point you are basically a projectile :V. Velocity Control doesn't let the object actually control itself at those speeds.

                        Find a Peasant and you have yourself a unique, literal version of the peasant railgun! Bribe your ST with food and an incredibly loose reading of the rules that say it changes damaged based on collision to turn your minions into potent projectiles! Just be sure to stay out of the blast range and/or splash zone!
