    dont take this to serious though....

    Desi el-Rainal(FKh; R3; Ba,tainted, 10; LE) great is the great grandmother of Rita min Namal (FKh; W5; Ba,minor, 15; NG).
    Rita was born on 18 Emmanir 2001 MA

    How old was Desi when Rita was born?

    Since she was a tainted bloodline, there should not be any longevity.

    Probably dead with the average lifespan of the middle ages.

    Just a quick guesstamite

    *boggle* Are those characters from the Khinasi book? I don`t recognize
    the names, but these region books have a cast of hundreds so that`s not
    real meaningful. They have to be, otherwise there`s not enough info to
    figure it out. :)

    Mmm, great-grandmother, medieval people start having kids about 15 or 16,
    she was 46.

    Unless the longevity was a trait for generations.

    The mother has a max bloodscore of 30 (double Ritas - assuming she married a commoner) which would probably yeild a Major level. Major "Long Life" ages at 1 per 25 years at age . Assuming she had Rita at the equivallent of 40 near the end of childbearing age, at 40 she would be 1,000.

    IF the grandmother would have also married a commoner she has a max bloodscore of 60 which still gives a good chance of a Great ability. Great aging is 1 year per century. So that's another 4,000 years.

    The Great Grandmother has a max bloodscore of 120 (4 generations back) if she also married a commoner. Which could give her the Long Life ability at a Great level. Assuming she had the grandmother at the equivallent of 40 near the end of childbearing age she would be 4,000.


    So... c. 9,000. :P

    I forgot an important fact. Diesmaar. Prior to that there were no bloodlines and subsequently no "Long Life" blood ability.

    So not counting magical influences on her age....
    the maximum upperlimit is probably around 1486

    (Diesmaar -973 MR + Current time 551 MR - 38 for Rita's current age)


    ;)


    I also seemed to have missed the reference to Desi's bloodline the first time. There is no ability to have Long Life at a Great level. Did you edit it after the fact or did I just jump to another of my famous conclusions? ;)

    If I am not mistaken you are refering to a future event in the past tense.

    That was my first impulse too. I had to reread it twice before it clicked. :P

    hey dont pick on my english ;)

    but since nobody seems to get close to the answer i'll give it to you..


    R=18e letter
    I=9e letter, so 9th month: Emmanir
    T=20th letter
    A= 01st letter, together TA=2001 MA

    DESI was born on 4 Haelynir 1909 MA

    so at the moment Rita saw the daylight, Desi had an age of 92 years.
