There are several age categories:

  • very young
  • young
  • mature
  • middle-aged
  • old
  • very old
  • ancient
  • very ancient
  • eternal

The younger you are, the lower your mental stats, but your physical stats tend to be higher. As you progress in age, there is a gradual shift away from physical stats to mental stats, specifically Wisdom. Ancient beings tend to be very wise but very frail. Age is indicated in your score. There are a few spells which can cause aging, and which can reverse aging effects. Eternal beings neither benefit from old age nor suffer from it. They also do not start out as naieve as other races and thus suffer no penalties nor receive any bonuses from age.
