Belated happy birthday, Markustay.

36 going on 16 for the most part here.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

I turned 23 in August :) I'm currently in college, and would have probably gradutated by now if I hadn't taken a couple terms off my junior year (finding out you have fibromyalgia sucks).

I'm younger than the Forgotten Realms setting, and that's the only clue I'm giving.

I tend to play characters within the 26-33 range preferably, or their racial equivalent. Though I've played characters as young as 15, as well as some old relics. I've got a severe case of alt-itis.

I am twenty seven years young.

I am not as seasoned as I'd like, but as well seasoned as I deserve.

Thanks, Xnella! If not for my 'job,' (or family business) I would have felt still 21. Oh, well, we do what we must.

I'm 25. So barely in the lower adult category.

Currently between games.

It could be useful for WotC to know the ages of the bulk of their Realms fans.

In my experience, most people under 18 don't buy the setting books.

I turned 25 on November 21st. I don't feel like I am in my mid-twenties, what happened! Maybe i've spent too much time reading Forgotten Realms products ;)

@Sylrae - adulthood starts at 18 in the eyes of most people, doesn't it? You are, and I soon will be, a quarter of a century old. People used to die at age 30! Turning 25 makes me feel old. But I am also in University (I started when I was 21) and so older than most of the people around me :S

Physically, yes. But mentally? A big question. Most people here believe that we usually start to think and act like an adult when we reach 21-24.

In psychology I think it is termed "extended adolescence" and is a very recent modern phenomenon. The result of needing more and more years of schooling to be able to become independent of our parents :( (This is me repeating what a professor of developmental psychology said in a lecture)

Because of my working in a factory, I feel much older than my current age of 24. Most days I feel (physically) as if I'm over a century old, but my mind (and attitude) would have you believe otherwise ;)

I stopped aging at 24 although my stupid mirror keeps telling me lies

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

Funny, mine does the same thing. And I'll soon be 36 (next month). Sadly, I found my first gray hairs at 30- right after finding out I was pregnant. Go figure... The good news is that if they keep coming in the way they are now, I'll end up looking like Rogue from X-Men! That's not TOO bad, I guess, lol!

39. And a half. But everyone says I look younger, I probably have some elven blood in my veins.

Ditto that... I'm just a few months from 39 myself, but I still routinely get carded if I buy alcohol.

I have noted, however, that I rarely get carded if I have my toddler with me.

I'll turn 29 on my next birthday, but since last year I've taken to rounding it out. Ill start aging again once I hit 31, but I've been saying I'm 30 this year and will continue to do so until 2015. I'm so done with my 20s.

Doesn't seem to make much difference for me here. I've been carded twice this year, even when Narnra has been standing right beside me holding my hand.
