Savage Rifts Pace And MPH

Return to Savage Rifts


For the Fly spell, it seems that MPH * 0.4 = Pace, or that Pace * 2.5 = MPH

  • Pace 24 = 60 MPH
  • Pace 48 = 120 MPH

And there's a clear conversion of Pace to MPH in Savage Rifts, based on powered armor and robot vehicles. It seems to equate roughly to "Pace * Run / 2," rounded up to the nearest 5 MPH. Here, the first value is canonical, the second is what my math produces.

  • Pace 10 + d8 = 40 MPH (40)
  • Pace 11 + d8 = 45 MPH (44)
  • Pace 12 + d8 = 50 MPH (48)
  • Pace 14 + d8 = 60 MPH (56)
  • Pace 14 + d10 = 70 MPH (70)
  • Pace 18 + d12 = 140 MPH (108)
  • Pace 14 + 2d8 = 150 MPH (112)

It seems to hold up at reasonable Pace values, below 100 MPH, but above that I suspect MPH were increased by fiat.
