The haste spell causes its subject to move with incredible speed, 
so much that the subject not only acts more often, but can complete 
spells in less than their usual time.

A hasted subject can often move so fast as to not be slowed
down like those passing through regular time and space.  This
often allows them to keep from being too wounded to move.

A chronomancer is more adept at increasing his own ability to 
control time.  As such, this spell's effectiveness on others is
somewhat limited.  Additionally, while the subject initially
moves rapidly through time, this benefit will slowly decrease
to the point where they have almost returned to normal speed.

Haste dispels slow, and vice versa.
