He wouldn't be old enough at age 97? I suppose you may be correct, regardless, the location isn't so much an issue for the character. It's mainly the culture of the Ashlanders that affects Redras. I could always change the age as I didn't intend on making the eruption a big part of his backstory.The Ashlanders still exist...but there is doubt about whether or not the Ashlands survived Red Mountains eruption...your Dunmer could have been born in the tribe's new territories.
Alright, here's what I just figured out. The eruption happened in 4E 05, and it's currently 4E 172, so my character wouldn't have even been alive. I'll change it so that he was born in the new Ashlander territories in year 4E 75 and change the rest of the story where it's necessary.The Eruption doesn't necessarily have to be part of his background...perhaps he could have been cast out of the tribe before the eruption?
True, however, I wasn't interested in making him old. I wanted him just old enough to have plenty of life experience and relative maturity while being young enough to be hot blooded and adventurous. I may even make him younger yet.well if hes an elf he could have been alive
