    Elves can life up to 1200 years. So assuming 80 years old as the human age, she is like a 6~8 yo children in human age. So, everyone who romanced her on BG2... She is bellow the age of concent in 99% of our world.

    The main advantage of elves is the slow aging. However, vampire brides NEVER ages and a vampire bride will ALWAYS be loyal towards her master.

    Sadly, BG3 will have a vampire spawn companion but no option to become a vampire...

    Wasn't Aerie's romance written by Gaider?

    You just made that up. I never read any lore to back this up.

    How strange you skipped over the part where we discussed Viconia being an evil drow that was wanted for brutally murdering an entire family.

    But this is wrong though. Avariel do not live as long as elves. Excerpt from the 2E Complete Book of Elves
    [​IMG]

    So she would have actually been a young adult assuming they mature at a similar rate as humans. An immature and naive one for sure, but that is due to her upbringing.

    Whether Avariel even are true elves isn't known in-universe, and there's a good argument for them not being elves out of universe. They first appeared in Dragon Magazine #51 as "The Winged Folk", and definitely weren't elves there.
    Small excerpt from Dragon #51 clearly implying they aren't elves.

    You say "brutally murdering", I read "in rightful self-defense". :obviously:

    Sweet Mother of God... there was alien-fuckery in Baldur's Gate 2. We finally found the link between BG3 and the Bhaalspawn saga.

    The age issue aside, laying with an elf would still be a case of bestiality. :M

    Dwarves are too pure for such carnal pursuits. They are birthed from the stone and to the stone they return. :obviously:

    So you're saying that Aerie is just a 20 something-year-old virgin pretending to be underage in order to steal your Bhallspawn seed?

    Note that "remain in this world" doesn't refer to time until death but to how long it takes before elves feel the urge to leave for Valinor and similar places. The 1200 year life expectancy is largely theoretical because few elves will stay that long. This is the official lore from the 2e PHB, I think it was retconned out from 3e on to make D&D elves less tolkienesque.

    People discuss Aerie's age when it's clearly about taking advantage of a mentally incapable person.

    Wasn't it just an ogre with a womanly voice you kill?

    She yells at Jaheira for calling her "child" even though she's actually the older of the two (though not mentally of course).

    We talked about Aerie like this already -
    Aerie is at best "barely 18" as an Avariel. But there is another aspect to this even if it turns out she's technically legal, a 25-year-old dating a 18-year-old irl is still iffy due to the different life stages they are in. The 18-year-old is still living with their parents and isn't independent yet or is striving for independence, so it's very easy for the 25-year-old to exploit that and try to groom them by creating another financial dependence. It's not always bad of course, but throwing a side-eye is worth it in these situations.

    I.e. there's no way the romance with Aerie is ok, getting her preggo is even worse.

    The source material clearly states they age like a gnome.
    Now if we go check the 2E PHB

    So a 60-year-old gnome is like a 15-year-old human? And Aerie is 50-60, soooo.

    Lacrymas using buzz words like grooming... cant prove it wrong so calls it "technically legal but iffy".. imagines creating "financial dependence" on forgotten realms.

    just what the fuck do you think you are defending here? and from who?

    Do you think there are some contexts in which it's not ok to date another technically legal adult?

    Could be wrong since I'm not that into FR, but Aerie is physically mature ergo elves have much longer adult lifespans than humans and consequently it is retarded to translate elven years into human ones.

    There's nothing to suggest she's only 50-60.
    How old do you think CHARNAME is?
