Hi Phil,
Yeah, the Genesis engine also has a speed setting for players and
enemies but for some reason it never ocurred to me to give each enemy
a unique speed setting.  I just set them to the default speed, and
didn't think about it after that.
At any rate the figures you gave me squares with what I was thinking
of using for the new speed settings.  I think a horse can average 25
miles per hour so 180 to 240 feet per minute sounds about right for
centaurs and similar creatures.  Harpies would move slightly slower,
but still quite fast. As for humans 120 feet per minute sounds pretty
reasonable for a brisk walk. So I'd say these speed  settings sound
very doable. Thanks for the info.
