    Now that aspect of "experience" the the one that does not translate well at all for D&D (as I have repeatedly pointed out).

    Yes I do and I try to come with a "history" for each of them, the amount of detail varies on the significance of the NPC.

    You are correct you did not directly tie age to level (it was inferred).

    But Ryan and Kenneth did specifically state so. (see the quotes above)

    Other than being completly wrong in D&D ruleset. . .

    You (and the others) are using real world comparisons to an abstract game (D&D).

    Simple - in D&D (note I said D&D) you can't.

    Experience is based on overcoming challenges (DMG pg 36 & , PHB pg 58) not simply on getting older.
