:) What is the largest number of differently-named Victory cards you can have in your deck, with none of them worth more than 0 VP?  :(

I'm gonna guess... 48?

12 each of Duke, Feodum, and either Vineyard or Distant Lands (but not both)
6 Overgrown Estates and 6 Pastures, via ridiculous 6-player Masquerade shenanigans

Differently-named.

Oops.

Play a Night from your hand twice in a night.
Opponent has Enchantress in play. Play Vampire, exchange for Bat. Play Bat, exchange for that Vampire. Play Werwolf, drawing that Vampire, and play again.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

How? Werewolf cannot draw in a night.

Werewolf is an Action so Enchantress turns it into a cantrip instead of its night effect.

Oh! This is an awesome answer! Well done!
My answer uses 2 Kingdom cards. You can do without any other player.

In that case, just have an additional Bat and a Cultist/Rats in hand to trash the Cultist/Rats and draw that Vampire.

Correct! My answer is...

Deck/Discard: (empty)
Hand: Vampire(A), Bat(A), 3 Rats

play Vampire(A) to gain Duchy, exchanging to Bat(B)
play Bat(A) to trash 2 Rats, drawing Bat(B) and Duchy, exchanging to Vampire(A)
play Bat(B) to trash Rats, drawing Vampire(A), exchanging to Vampire(B)
play Vampire(A) to gain Duchy

There are quite a few Kingdom Cards that can create the game state to double-Province without requiring the use of any other Kingdom cards.*  For example, Remodel.  With Remodel and 4 Golds: play Remodel, trash Gold, gain Province, play three Golds, buy Province.

A few more cards can, similarly, triple-Province.  Market: Play ten Markets to end up with a hand of 5 Golds, triple-Province with those $25 and 10 buys.**

Grand Market can, in the same way, quadruple-Province.

A hand of Candlestick Makers can, fairly simply, quintuple-Province using buys and coin tokens.  Governor (EDIT: and City) can also quintuple fairly trivially.

What other two cards can generate a quintuple-Province on their own?

*"Double-province" meaning, get two Provinces on a turn without milling/sacrificing other VP cards.
**There's at least one more triple-Province card that isn't mentioned here and isn't one of the two answers.
***Of course I could be wrong about so many things!  Maybe there's more than two.

City can get 6, rebuild can kind of get 5 but probably counts as milling vp, capital gets 3.

Well I mean you could call 5 Transmogrifies on a hand of 5 Platinums, but I don't know if having a Platinum board, which implies the presence of kingdom cards from Prosperity, counts as "using" other kingdom cards.

So Mill and Sacrifice don't work as solutions then.

City can get 6

Ah.  I didn't think of that one, darn.  I have two other ones.

I do consider Platinum and Shelters off limits, although I'm curious to know if it adds anything to allow them, but only for Prosperity and Dark Ages sets respectively.  Otherwise it has to be Golds and Provinces, plus whatever accoutrements come with the answer-card.

Pixie can quintuple-Province.

Trash 3 Pixies for 6 Wil-o-wisps.

Start turn with Will-o-wisps all drawing Pixies. 11 cards in hand. Reveal 2x Sea's Gift for 4 extra cards, 15 in hand. Reveal 2x Forest's Gift for 4$, 5 buys. All 15 cards are Golds, so you have enough cash to quintuple-Province. (revealing the same Boon twice works with triggering a good reshuffle).

Black Market often comes with a few useful accoutrements... does that count?

Druid can quintuple Province.

Druid has Swamp and Field (and something else).  You have 5 Druids in your deck, and you have 12 Wisps.  You start this turn with 5 Wisps.  First 7 Wisps draw Gold+Wisp.  Next 5 Wisps draw Gold+Druid.  Play all Druids for Field ($5). Play 12 Golds ($41).  Buy 5 Provinces.

How many Golems can you gain during your buy phase with with a hand of unlimited size, but made up of only treasure and hybrid treasure, with only one copy of each card -- and no other cards in your hand, deck, or on your mats?

Three? Counterfeit, Potion, Quarry, Crown, Charm and you have Ferry token on Golem so you Counterfeit the Potion, Crown the Charm and buy a Transmute to gain 2 Golems and then you buy a third Golem with your second .

EDIT: With Stonemason on the board, you can get 4 and don't even need the Charm thing.

Are we allowed to leave the Buy phase, then come back into it? Because Villa + Pathfinding could enable some shenanigans.

I think it's more using on-gain effects of kingdom cards.

No, gotta stay in your buy phase.
