Well...
Two votes and it's pegged at 36-40.
I'll be 36 in July, so I put myself in the more "mature" bracket.


Dave, get the barbarian in the corner a drink, quick!

As much as it pains me to say, I'm 40.  But I'm happy to be in the 36-40 category.  41-45 sounds too old.

30. Looks like I'm the young'un in the group thus far...However, I started playing when I was 8...how many of you have spent more than ~75% of your life thus far on this game/hobby? :)

I voted 31-35, even though I am only 30.  I will be 31 this year though.

I turn 38 on Friday... official move from mid to late-thirties.

Looks like 35/36 will end up the average... would have expected more 40+ members. Or perhaps its just that noone (apart from Robotico) will admit to it?

Regards

Mike

i am 37 in december, first played when i was 11, and my character was killed by a White Dragon.

can anyone remember the name of their first character? having never played before, i was unsure how the names all got thought up (duh!)...so i found a program at the time on the computer: ZX81, which randomized fantasy character names for you - the first one it came up with was "Borka the Jop" and thats what i used. i was devastated when he died...but hey thats the name of the game! :)


Are we nearly there yet?

We didn't even give our characters names because we would usually only play once with them.  We didn't start continuing campaigns until 76 or 77.
