Mod request: dying of old age

Post by Opcero » Wed Jan 29, 2020 5:32 pm

The old Gygax dungeon masters guide has a great chart for starting age for different races and maximum age. I think it would be cool if you could start the game with a date your character will die of old age from

Hm... as you age, you start getting negative attribute points :D

The paperdoll could also update with wrinkles and grey hair?

A small thing to keep in mind is that there is quite a bit of quest auto dialog that refers to you as "young".
ex: "Thank you kindly, young Dark Elf!"

Also, the generated backstory (character sheet > history) seems to imply you are reasonably young at the start of the main quest, with fairly recently leaving your parents' home for the first time on a grand scale - at the Emperor's request.

Just thought I'd mention that in case you were looking for the mod to allow old age rollplay, be it from the start or after you age through long-term gameplay. However, you could always just ignore that text :lol:

Agent was born in 3E 375, The Warp in the West occured in 3E 405, game starts in 3E 405 as well. So you're 30 years old and you're kinda intended to beat the game in less than in-game year :)

Also, Elves live for centuries, so 30 years for them means very young.

What about tracking the RL days u spend in DFU and set a limit of xxx days and just delete the saves when it runs out, pretending the characters death 😂 sounds masochist enough.. possibly u can find some auto-destruct app, point it to the saves directory and set a timer :)
