Celerity-Assisted Movement: Quick Reference

compiled by: Dare, dare@sanguinus.com A Legacy Article from Sanguinus Curae @ Kismet's World of Darkness, http://wod.kismetrose.com/

     Basic movement rates are given in the rules as; Walking: 7 yards per turn, Jogging/Slow Running: 12+Dexterity yards per turn, Running: 12+(3xDexterity) yards per turn. (Vampire: the Masquerade: 3rd Edition, p. 200)
     That seems relatively simple - until you consider that a turn is defined as anything from 3 seconds to 3 minutes. Suddenly the basic consideration of how fast your character is moving becomes infinitely more complicated.
     For my own purposes as an ST I have compiled this chart in which a movement turn is defined as 5 seconds. This follows well with a basic experiment regarding walking speed - get out and set a good walking pace, then count to yourself as you walk, you should find that a single pace takes just less than a second, and that an average pace is between two and three feet - Hence my basic walking speed of 4 feet per second.
The rest should be fairly self-explanatory.
     The bottom line? No Vampire of any generation can outrun a bullet, and cars are still the fastest way to get from here to there on the long haul. :)
