Information on aasimars

Post by Dapher » Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:40 pm

Ok, I have heard several diffrent people give me several diffrent answers reguarding this topic. So I thought I would ask the player base as a whole. I have been researching the ages of aasimars, and trying to get a little deeper knowlege of thier backround. I have the basic wiki page that I found. Everything on this page compares aasimars to devas. The idea of never really aging, and never dying. I was not sure if we did the same on FK, because I know we cannot create true devas. The wiki page was not specific on the 3.5 rules, it kept talking about the 4.0 rules of D&D. So, here is the page:

Yeah, I think that never-dying thing is just 4th ed being weird.... very weird.

I only have the 2nd ed books, which state Aasimar as having the same lifespan as humans. I believe 2nd ed and 3rd are fairly similar, though.

I'll throw in 3.5's information while we're at it.

Aasimars hit adulthood at the same time as humans, but they are middle-aged at 45 years, old at 68, and venerable at 90. Their maximum age is 150 years with the average aasimar dying of old age at 121.5 years.

That is what I was looking for. The 3.5 eddition stuff. Seeing as how the rest of FK is being geared towards 3.5 I would assume that is what we would base it off of
