From publisher blurb:
With age comes Wisdom. And Intelligence. But Constitution goes out the door…
Many of the iconic heroes of fantasy literature are extremely elderly, from the long-bearded wizard to the aging vampire-hunter and the wizened wise-woman. Being at the extremes of age brings many physical limitations, but it’s also worth remembering an elderly adventurer has already survived thigns the young can’t even imagine.
Four Horsemen Present: Venerable Character Options discusses both the challenges and opportunities that adding an elderly character to a campaign bring about. Issues such as ageism, frailty, and motivations are examined, and venerable characters for nonhuman races are discussed. Age-related traits can affect how an older character thinks, sleeps, and prioritizes problems. Venerable character feats represent the breadth of experience than only the truly old can claim. And a new prestige class, the ancient sensei, allows the oldest characters to master tricks that will amaze the youngest heroes for decades to come.
