# Centaur in Hero System Bestiary v6

## Recommended Posts

In the PDF I bought for Hero System Bestiary v6, on page 64 it lists the Centaur's "Total Cost: 1336175"
I am guessing this is incorrect?

Actually, that's correct.  The typo is that his Kick/Rear attack is supposed to be HA +334,043d6.  Them Centaurs are scrappy!

I didn’t do the math but it seems he could kick you to the Moon!

Not in a single Phase (the Moon is much farther away than that), but yes, he could.  The average Knockback would be 668,072m, which is far enough to reach space, and you'd travel that far in a single Phase, which would be 668km per second (much higher than escape velocity, which is a bit over 11km per second). Even if you halve the distance traveled because you're opposing gravity, and halve the velocity accordingly, it still exceeds escape velocity and still reaches space.  With the right trajectory, you could probably eventually drift to the Moon, but I'm not enough of a mathematician or astrophysicist to calculate what that would entail.

While I dislike being the voice of sanity, the answer to the original question is "yes" .

Well, the moon is 385,000.6 km from earth, so at 334km/segment that's around 20 minutes of drift time, so your aim wouldn't have to be terrific.  The moon does have gravity to pull in a pretty close shot and is 3,475 across, which is hard to miss.

Team Rocket, blasting off again!!!

Remember the teachings of Nyrath:

Don't lead the moon!  Aim _behind_ it!
