A few years back our group tried to come up with the fastest possible D&D character. If I remember correctly we could build a character that could go faster than the speed of sound, but I can't find my notes of this character ("The Running Man") anywhere anymore.
My question: what's the fastest D&D 3(.5) character possible?
The constraints we used in our experiment:
- Has to be a "personal" speed: running, swimming, or flying (no mounts, vehicles, being shot from a cannon, etc).
- Max character level 20.
- No gold limit on items.
- Any Wizards of the Coast published rulebook allowed, including psionics.
- We did this experiment in D&D 3rd ed., but an answer in 3.5 is acceptable too (though I suspect that's tougher).
Basically, the question came down to creating a character that could make at least 6780 feet in a round (6 secs), which is 1130 feet per second, which is roughly 345 m/s: the speed of sound at about room temperature.
To further clarify the spirit of the question and the rules we had:
- No "cheating" or obvious "shortcuts". This includes miracle/wish. I realize this is vague and invite anyone to edit my Question and make this constraint more explicit.
- Handbooks/rules on epic and deities are excluded.
So: how fast can we go?
