Death while Aging

Post by DM Juan » Mon Sep 23, 2019 9:51 am

I added a chart with the %, for easier calculation, not fully done, but %s up to 50+ now.
Note I realised the charts were wrong on half-elves. Namely, we have been saying they could be played at 16 not 100. I changed the chart to recognize that fact. On the top end, it means Half-elves theoretically don't live as long, but it shouldn't be a major in-game issue. If you started with a half-elf that was 200 years old say, we can hand-waive it to being the same as being 100 years old for aging purposes in the chart (just cut in half the chart implications).

Can I confirm that Orogs should use Human Age categories.

Right, need to add Orogs. Yeah, Orogs use human charts, their source noted life expectancy was around the same or near enough ("usually live to 85" suggests human lifespan).

Is this change retroactive? I have half elf children that I have made Lts.

If they were born in game, use the new chart. Functionally, you are not going to have a check until 80+ years old anyway. If you came into the game with children adults, then assume they are half-aged for the chart.

Basically, it is because we have allowed 16 year old half-elfs to be recruited, which means the chart was simply wrong.

Does a half-elf that was between 150 and 200 before the chart was changed become 'old' instead of adult or middle-aged? Or is their age halved for determining age category as well as death checks?

Their age is halved for the age-category and death checks. It was to be in line with the fact that we had made them recruited at 16, so moved the age categories one step ...
