  • How quicker are Urshul and Urhan compare to Hishu?

    I ask here on rather long term runs. I know that Urshul has over 150% of Hishu Speed trait, and Urhan has about 130% of it - but I ask here how long Wolf and Near-Wolf Forms can ran in a day. I did not found answers in 2E corebook and Blood of Wolf so made some Internet research and this topic.

    Typical human can walk for about 6 miles / 10 kilometers a day. Real athletes can get to the point of 20 miles ( 32 km ) in a day, 30 miles (48 km ) with no stops.

    And this are Wolf data from this Wolf FAQ site:

    How fast can wolves run? Wolves will travel for long distances by trotting at about five miles per hour. They can run at speeds of 36 to 38 miles ( 61 km ) per hour for short bursts while chasing prey. Although bursts of maximum speed are relatively short, wolves can maintain pursuit of running prey animals for long distances and over rough terrain.

    How far can wolves travel? Wolves are hunters, and they travel far and wide to locate prey. They may travel 50 miles ( 80 kilometers ) or more each day in search of food, and they are superbly designed for a life on the move. Because their elbows turn inward, their lean bodies are precisely balanced over their large feet. With their long legs and ground-eating stride, they can travel tirelessly for hours on end with no energy wasted. Dispersing wolves, those leaving packs in search of their own mates, have been known to travel hundreds of miles away from their home territory. Satellite and Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) collars allow researchers to document the truly remarkable travels of wolves.

    So if wolves can travel easily 2-3 times more than long distance humans with 130% Speed trait - is that mean that Urshul can go into area of running 5-6 times more than humans with 150% Speed trait?

    Urhan is actually far faster than Urshul if you factor Chase Down.

        To contrast, typical horse real speeds are: A horse's speed depends on gait - Walk: 4 mph, Trot 8 to 12 mph, Canter 12 to 15 mph, Gallop 25 to 30 mph
        A typical horse may be comfortable walking for eight hours, meaning horse could easily cover 32 miles in a day.

        In sum up, horse can make ( more or less ) twice as much as athlete human in a day, and wolves can make twice as much as horses.

          That's in terms of speed, sure, but in terms of endurance, a human can outlast both. It's how we tamed both.

            Indeed, ​wyrdhamster - look up Persistence Hunting. Slow and Steady does win out over long enough races.
