## Example

Maximum speed of 29.61 c/s vs base speed of 4.6 c/s

Moving speed of a particular pawn can be calculated using the following formula:

```Move speed = (Base value + Offsets) × Factors × External factors
```

Let us calculate how fast a human could possibly go. It would have the following values:

```Move speed = (4.6 c/s + 0.4 c/s) × (4.23 × 1.4) × 1 = 29.61 c/s
