Poll Question:
Paizo had a poll and surprisingly nobody was below 18. Would be interesting to know about Candlekeep because WotC these days targets a younger audience. And post the age of your current character, for curiosity's sake ....

I'm 21

Trying to figure out what "Other" covers, persons under age 1?
The only other option that occurs to me are persons that have no age at all.

Not yet 25, so I barely made it to the lower category (which probably makes no difference at all)

Oblivion loomed on every side, the offspring lived, basking in the realization that each moment could be the last moment.

Just turned 24. Been playing D&D (pen and paper version) since 2000, but I guess I've technically been playing since 1998 when Baldur's Gate came out.

I'm 26... or 27. Depends on what day it is of the month.

I usually GM, so I can't say I have a 'current character', as such. When I do make characters, they've ranged from 17-63, for humans. So not much correlation, although it's entirely possibly that the average age of characters would somehow accidentally be close to my age.

19.
Most of my characters tend to be "barely into adulthood", which allows for a lot of freedom and fun and alignment shaping etc.

Mentally or chronologically?

I'm 31. My main PC is....oh....I dunno, around 600 now? I've kind of lost count, lol. But to quote the great philosopher Hootie, "I don't believe in time."

Age-wise I will be 47 in one week.

I look about 10 years younger, feel about 10 years older, and have the maturity of a 14 year old.

As for characters, if human they usually range from 18-25, but I've played younger and older, and as for non-humans the ages have been all over the place (including an 8 year old goblin, which is about the equivalent of a 20-yr-old human).

I've always felt like a hobbit. Which means at 37, I've only been an 'adult' for about 4 years.

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.
