Fantasy Timespans III – Yes, the Fight to the Death Is a Symbol for High School

Welcome back! My last post on fantasy lifespans ended up running a bit long, ironically enough. So here’s the second half of my breakdown of what I, personally, use to explain away the various different “coming of age” ages for different fantasy races. Last time we explored a bit of the problem and then looked at the elves, one of the most troublesome species given the sheer length of their “childhood” century.

This time around, however, we’re going to look at some of the shorter long-lived species: the dwarves, the halflings, and the gnomes. We’re also going to take a short look at shorter lifespan species like the orcs and dragonborn, to help make their maturity progressions a bit better.

The Half-Fey Race (1.0)

The Feywild is a wild and mysterious place. Sometimes, its presence on the Material Plane leaves echoes – the wild sanctuaries of the druids, or the weird forests where time and nature seem confused. Other times, it leaves children with minds full of adventure and a view of the world unlike anyone else.
