Hello guys,

I was playing with the numbers after some discussion about the speed of a rocket. At first I thought that a Rocked, like Saturn V would make about Mach 6, but indeed it is much faster, about Mach 22. Then I remade the scale table I used and got this values. As Ian said more than once, it’s not about the precise numbers but what they mean to the characters in game... but I do love numbers...

So, the multiplier is x5 per scale, except for Might that is 125 (5^3) and Space Speed that is 25 (5^2, because 2 dots in flight or in Mega Speed add 1 dot in Space Speed, it’s somewhere on the new rules).

Notice that the only on the extremes it doesn’t work properly, BUT is a nice example for how big or small it is. One Atom has a diameter or 0,1 to 0,5 Nanometers, so the Scale -9 Nova is about 800 atoms tall, and Earth is about 12,75 Mm, so a Nova Scale 9 is about ⅓ of Earths diameter tall.

On Space speed, Scale 6 is very close to the light speed, so basically the maximum possible (as specified in the book). After Scale 6, I added the Warp factor for people into Star Trek.

On Might, Earth mass is about 6 x 10^24 kg, while a Pton is about 10^18. The Nova can’t move the Earth, but, come on, it was close...

Here are the numbers, I hope we have fun discussing it...
