I had feared that, Head Hunter, as that would mean 35 is the new 53, le sigh :)

18 too young? Never. Some of my best friends were 18...most were actually, no wait, all of them, yup, so you're in good company.

32 is the new 23. I am 18. I hope I am not too young.

It's not the age, it's the milage....if that's the case, I should be about 80.

That's true @ Mystic.

And, 35 can be the new 25. It has potential. Well, I am glad 18 is accepted. I usually get along with the older crowd better than my own. :)

Back when I was running SR2 (yikes, I suddenly feel old), one of my friends brought his 15 year old nephew into the group. We gave him a good welcome, he took his lumps, and became one of the best players of the group. I tend not to look so much at age, but maturity. Ive seen people who are supposedly "kids" act better than those three times their age. *shrugs*

Got about three months left of being in the 44 group, then I graduate to "Midlife Crisis".

Meh, gamer's mid-life crises usually involve picking up a copy of a World of Darkness game and LARPing at a local con.

You know what's hilarious?  LARPing an Amberite with a bunch of vampires.

Oh, god, that's funny.  Especially when you tell the vamps that you decided to change how their powers work, and then leave them in a reality that enslaves vampires to grow mushrooms.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Whoa, I know those people! I used to game with them! Was "asked not to return" (Read: got kicked out of) though. Evidently they don't like it when two mere "mongrels" manage to take out several high ranking vampires with explosive trashcans containing a holy-water and soaked wood-shrapnel core. Guess it didn't help to proclaim "Its open season on all suck-heads!" when we did it...No one has a sense of humor anymore

A nuwisha and a ragabash with a high demolitions skill, resources, and time. Two months of work for 30 seconds of bliss. Worth it.

 ;D

That is hilarious.  Glad to see there are other Amberites around still though!
