47, look like I'm pushing 60 (seriously). I have a 20-year-old son who is a better DM than I am.

'Main' character is a couple centuries old. Imagine Captain Kangaroo with a vicious streak a mile long.

Let's see...In real life I am 24, turning 25 not too long after the new year rolls around.

As a character...When I play as X'nella or her twin sister Lysaetae, I think they are about 27 now, and just discovering that (as half-elves) they almost look old enough to get into bars in our world. But only if they use Disguise Self!

And then there's my halfling thief Chenna "Dragonstabber/Dragonslayer", who's just hitting her 40's and still flirts with her dragonborn-paladin buddy (he thinks she's just joking, but she actually has a crush on him) who loves to use her as an improvised weapon against the bigger monsters.

Please forgive any spelling and grammer errors, as my android touch-screen phone has no spellchecker. If I do make a grammer mistake, please let me know and I'll try to fix it.

I turned 29 in July for the very first time.

I tend to play characters in the 40-60 region, usually slightly long lived races like half-elves, shadar-Kai, falleen (whoop! That's SW), etc. Mature rather than young heroes.

Cheers

I usually base my characters' age, if anyone actually cares when I'm playing which they don't seem to, on our starting level.

My last character was around 100 (going on 17 by maturity of actions) - a half-faerie dragon.

42.

I usually play drow characters whose age tends to be in the 100s. Mentally, they're probably in the 30 - 40 (I really need to do something with my life) bracket.

Nb: Using the Wooly Rule I'm only 31.

Half faerie dragon and half human?

In any event, that sound slike a lot of fun.

Oh, and I just thought I'd mention how much I liked your 'Evil Seeps In' (something close to that) story.
