The Effects of Age

As a Youth, a character is an adolescent who is supposed to be under an adult's care and supervision. As an Adult, he gains full legal rights and responsibilities. At Mature, a character begins to suffer the effects of aging. He must roll HT once per year. On a failed roll, an attribute decreases by 1 point. On a critical failure, 1 point of HT is lost as well. An Old character's HT roll is made at a penalty equal to the number of years above the minimum age for Old (IE: -1 at age 81 for humans). If any attribute is reduced to zero, the character passes away.
