And by the way, the picture is excellent, one of the best I have seen in a while.  :)


I really like it as well, and it's quite perfect for Arvan. :-D I'm just glad I managed to find out who made it, so I could ask for her permission to use it. I don't really like using things from others without their approval. :-D
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

All right, I'm finally done discussing his age with the others, and the result of the poll has been taking into account during this discussion. I've decided he's 35 years old. :-D

Yes, I know that the poll shows that most think he's younger than that in the portrait. But his portrait is only one of the arguments, and I can't really give most of them seeing as how that contains some major spoilers. ;-)

The things I can say however is that it's important that he's been travelling outside his stronghold for at least 10 years (which makes him older than 30). His personality is also closer to someone of 40, then someone of around the 25. And his complete background makes it *very* important that he's at least 35.

You might wonder why I'm willing to change his age if it's so important... the simple answer is that it isn't. As long as he's at least 35 and not older than 45, it doesn't really matter that much to the storyline. And if you still think he should be younger or that I should give him an older portrait... well some people look very good for their age. :p

Greetings. :-D

BTW: Originally I thought of him as 40/42. Of course this was based on his personality, and long before I seriously started thinking about him joining the party, his age, stats, and finding him a portrait. ;-)
I am.

Since I've chosen option 3 so I think I got more or less the right answer :D

It does no good to question why

I still think he looks younger than 35. (BTW, I changed my ID: from Tasha Blackmoore, to Revan's Shadow :D)
