hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

"MY elf is a master of all the arcane and he shoots lightning out of his fingers."
"Really? Cool. How old is he?"
"15!"
"Right..... sure..... I'm gonna go over there now."*exit scene right*


Maybe your the 15year old elven arcane master. Maybe your the person that wasn't impressed with the idea that this spell slinger is not even a third your age. Maybe if the young wipper snapper mentioned that they where possessed at infancy by a unknown source that imbued him with all this awesome power but thanks to his parents/grandma's/vigilant teacher they where able to keep it in check, or.. not in check. Maybe you'd have been more open to the idea of such a young spell caster, if you knew or thought up such things, and less likely to get the smell of burnt hair coming from the back of your head.

Well, if you can't think of a good reason for your guy being super at age negative eleven here is a little note to help you age your character appropriately so you can avoid all that pesky thinking up reasons for being awesome so young and think up new reasons of why you are awesome while waving your cane angrily at the neighbors snot nosed kids.


Your Guide to Basic Age of Maturity and When You Are Gonna Die.
~A guide by Jaggie Jutebox



Humans(3.5e)
Humans have a short life span, achieving maturity at about 15 and rarely living even a single century.

Elves (3.5e)
Physically mature by the age of 25 and emotionally mature at around 125, elves can live to be over 700 years old while remaining physically youthful. They rarely die due to the wear of age.

Dwarves (4e)

Although they reach physical maturity at roughly the same age of humans, dwarves age more slowly and remain vigorous well past 150 years of age, often living to see 200.

Gnomes(3.5e)
Gnomes reach adulthood at about the age of 40. They live to about 350 years, though some can live almost to 500.

Half-elves/Half-humans (3.5e)
Maturity at age 20 and can live to be over 180 years old.

Half-orcs(3.5e)
Half-orcs mature a little faster than humans and age noticeably faster. Few half-orcs live longer then 75 years.

Halflings(3.5e)
Haflings mature in their early 20's and generally live  to 250+

Warforged (3.5e and the interwebs)
Unlike the other races Warforged are....different. The come out of the creation forge already aware and at their full size. Normally it only takes a few months to fully train a warforged in what ever task it has been made to do. They do not age as the other races do, and it is not known what effects time will have on them, although it is stipulated that, like all living creatures, their bodies must experience degradation over time.
The oldest warforged made my Cannith are roughly 35-37 years old though the ancient warforged discovered in Xen'drik, made by giants/quori, where made roughly 41,000 years ago. Wither or not some of this ancient warforged have survived till modern day... *shrug*you can decide.
Middle age for a warforged is considered to be 150 years of age though no other information has been given.

Changeling (4e)
Changeling have simular life spans as humans do. Maturity at about fifteen years of age and living for about 75-90 years.

Shifter (4e)
Shifters live about as long as humans.

Kalashtar(4e)
Yet again, see human.



((yeah yeah... I noticed that when it got to warforged I got more wordy.. What can I say? I like warforged and I try to gather all the info I can. ))
((The majority of this information has been gathered from DnD Players Handbook 3.5ed and 4ed.))

I don't make the rules, I just follow them... Because it makes you angry.

((For reference, Jeatra (Halfling) is in her 20s, so she is fairly young. Originally I had her even younger, but as her story changed, she grew up a little.

Coldin (Human) is 26, Lynton (Half-Elf)is 24 (I believe these are the correct ages, but I'm going off of memory)

Rosein (Human) is 24.

All ages subject to change of course based on my whim.

((And that's about the time she walked away from me. . . Nobody likes you when you're 23. And are still more amused by TV shows. What the hell is ADD? My friends say I should act my age. . .

Obvious reference aside, thank you for this, Jaggie. I realized that I was offshooting Der's physical age by. . . A long shot. Thankfully, that doesn't come up much, but thanks all the same. It's more accurate now.))

Great reference post Jaggie!  It should be a sticky if not already.

My only question about it is the Quori and Giant forged.  Shouldn't they be much older?  I mean the lore says these things happens millenia ago.  If these creatures are only 125, then somehow they were created after their masters left...

I'm actually curious about that now too. Maybe I wasn't wrong. :S

If I remember right, one of my books had a timeline or something in it. Maybe I can find it, and maybe it'll mention them.

EDIT: It says the Quori invaded the Giants about 40,000 years ago. And since we still see them in DDO in certain quests. . . Maybe they are that old? I'm not sure what book Jaggie used, but the one I checked was the Eberron Campaign Setting.

I'm pretty sure the xen'drik forged are at least 40k years old. Which says something about the longevity of wf. Jags will outlive us all.

thus why it says 125+ but yeah.... you folks be right. I'm gonna go hunt down some more info on the age of 'forged and try to get a more accurate date. Thank yous.



Edit: Updated. Thank you Deriaz for finding the age chart and the eberron timeline for me in the 3.5e books.
