This has not been released yet and is probably still weeks to a few months out. However, in the interest of "communication" and "positive regard" and "not hating all life on Earth" we decided to release the information now. There are three parts to the age updates you should be aware of.

1: AGE verb.

>age You are twenty-six years old.
Among Olvi, you are considered a whippersnapper.
To the other races, you appear to be young.

In addition to the obvious, it will also be used to select whether you want default aging (with supernatural longevity tacked on at the end, keeping you alive as a shuffling geezer) or graceful aging (with Empathic Longevity added to your lifecycle, making you look younger).

2: SHIFT update.

Age shifting will no longer change your actual age and date of birth as shown in INFO. However, it will still modify your appearance on LOOK. In AGE, it'll go a little something like this:

>age
You are twenty-six years old, yet appear to be fifty-six due to empathic shifting.
Among Olvi, you appear to be a pipesmoker.
To the other races, you appear to be middle-aged.

Once again: INFO will give you your character's actual date of birth and age. LOOK will be based purely on cosmetic age. AGE will give you both.

3: And now the long, boring part of our presentation.
