    I'm glad you guys dialed it back a little. It was getting a little too contentious on this thread. To throw in my thoughts, I think it is perfectly valid to pick and choose whom you bring into your gaming group, and age is a very valid factor. When you say,

    That really isn't supported by facts. The fact is that the brain's capacity for making sound judgment is still developing beyond the teen years and all the way up until the mid-twenties. A person who is twenty and a person who is thirty are in completely different places both in life experiences and in cognitive maturity. If you're interested, here are a couple of articles I found in a quick search of the web that highlight this: http://ontheirlevel.org/whats-happening/maturation-of-the-teen-brain/ and http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2008-03/ehs-atb032808.php.

    This is certainly a valid criterion for deciding if you are going to bring someone into your group. This is especially true if, like me, your D&D group is in effect a circle of friends and not simply acquaintances that you happen to roleplay with. Now, personally, I don't exclude someone just because they happen to fall under the median age of my group. I meet and interview anyone who is potentially going to join my game. I do have limits though, in that I would not personally be comfortable having someone in my group who was under 18. At that point, I think the disparity is too great -- we're simply in completely different places in our lives. I donít think there is anything unreasonable about that.

    You have my brand of approval.
    It is quite hot if you can pull it off, your fiancee is a lucky guy.
    Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.
