You think so now, but you'll miss them soon enough. Trust me, I REALLY wish I could have mine back!

34 on my end.

TBH I can't really say that I'm particular surprised with the result of the results here. RPG tabletop games are the games of an aging generation. The teens of today have grown up with mmorpg's and computer games, and dice, pens, paper, and physical rulebooks are old fashioned and something from a past era.

The core audience for RPG games are guys who are 25+, and this is the generation that is likely to stay the core audience.

Wizards tried to capture the mmorpg computer generation with 4th ed., and I'm pretty sure that the exercise failed, why we are already seeing 5th ed. in the works. IMO Wizard's next potential core audience, are the kids of the 30-40 year old players of today. Assuming that we introduce our kids to the RPG games that have brought us so much entertainment over the years. In all likelyhood, they are stuck with us as the core audience for another 5-15 years, I'm guessing.

I'm 26, look twice that (due to my beard and the fact I'm already going bald ("Darn you to heck, genetics!")), and wishing I was thirteen again (I was home-schooled, and missed out on all the fun* most teens have).

As for current characters, Malchios Shadroch (my aasimar cleric in my group's Pathfinder campaign) is 55 (technically he won't be an adult until he turns 60), and Drustan (who's only 'current' because of some short stories I've been writing) is 148-9 (he was born 11 Uktar, 1336 D.R., and, from what I understand, the current novels are set in 1485 D.R.).

*Of course, everyone has (and is entitled to) there own opinion of what is and is not 'fun' (though most of you probably know what I'm talking about).

Drustan Dwnhaedan, you're not alone!
I recently decided to shave my head since covering the balding process was starting to get on my nerves.
Damn genetics!

48 1/2. Started playing D&D at age 7 as the cleric in my brothers 1E group. And just redid the office to unpack nearly all of my FR and D&D gamebooks from the last 40+ years (not the novels and magazines, just don't have that kind of space).

55 at the end of the month. I started playing in '78. Played all through jr high, high school, and college and a bit afterwards (I moved around a lot because of job opportunities so it was real hit or miss depending on where I was and for how long). During that time, played Chainmail, Basic D&D, 1E and 2E, Runequest, Top Secret(1E), Ringworld, Star Trek:TRPG (1E), Star Wars (1E), Twilight 2000, Champions, Marvel Superheroes (1E), and Traveler.

Sweet baby Laeral! This poll is almost 10 years old, which means the numbers are way skewed. I answered it when I turned 37 and this year I'll be 47!!

GET OFF MY LAWN!

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