Avaerage and max ages of Wesnoth's races

Post by Yomar » May 24th, 2019, 11:24 pm

So, are the average and max age of each race well established or not ?

I searched a bit on the forums, and supposedly Elves and Dwarves have an average lifespan of 250-350 years.

Other data somewhere ?

In meantime here are my guesses on Default Era, with *theoretical maximums. (*Maybe no one reached Max, but its possible.)
Elves = 250 - 350 (Max 500)
Dwarves = 250 - 350 (Max 400)
Humans = 60-80-*100 (*rare) (Max 150) (based on oldest men in our world)
Orcks = 20-50 (Max 70)
Drakes = 20-30 (Max 50)
Drakes = (Old fallacious #100-150 (Max 200)#
Saurs = 10-15 (Max 40) (Based on Lizards of our world)
Saurs = (Old version #60 - 70 (Max 100) (Based on some reptiles of our world)#
Undeads = Till bones become dust (decompose) or magical energy dissipates (Decomposition, depends on climate from a decade to thousands of years but considering wear and tear and no regeneration or healing a hundred is generous So about 40-80 and 120 max).
Goblins = 10-20 (Max 45)
Ogres = 30-60 (Max 75)
Woses = (500-700) (Max 1000) (based on oldest Oaks in our world)
Nagas = 40 - 60 (Max 80)
Mermans = 50-70 (Max 90)
Yetis = 150-200 (Max 250)
Dragons = (600-800) (Max 1200)
Ghosts = Till they rest in peace, lol, till the magical energy that bonds them to this plane don't dissipates, so if renewed till the summoner dies.
Liches = Thousands of years when reaching ancient status, practically immortal for other races mortal perception.
Zombies = till it rots, so a few months is very generous (Max 1 Year)
Ghouls = Depends if he can feed himself or not, if not he rots otherwise he can extend his lifespan till he bloats too much 1-2 (Max 130)
Bats = 15-30 (Max 42)

Just fantasy estimates, not counting magical youth potions.
This was made just for fun, so don't take it too seriously.

Sometimes the in-game help section gives this information. For example, with drakes, it says they "usually live naturally between 20 to 30 years." (This has also been copied to the wiki.) I'm not sure why it was decided to give them such a short lifespan.

Thx, I gave them a ling lifespan, because dragons live long, usually, anyway I changed it now, according to those info.
