Some bit of context: Our group comes up on a giant accompanied by mammoths, and he’s investigating the death of one his own. My cleric leads the group in a non-hostile interaction with this giant, speaking to him in his language in a friendly manner, etc. But the situation suddenly turns and he starts contradicting himself, accusing us of murdering his cousin whose body he just recovered. I cast Detect Magic and I sense a divine power taking control of the giant. He attacks, and I’m doing all I can to plead with him to stop and pleading with the group to use nonlethal damage. Unfortunately, once the giant’s health was worked down, our goliath barbarian did 19 points of “nonlethal” damage straight to the back of the giant’s head as the final hit, and the giant rolled a nat 1 on a con save to determine the severity of the hit. Giant died from nonlethal damage. Go figure. As my cleric is having a moment over the giant, the rest of the party is being, well, an adventuring party, and want to loot, and my cleric is not having it.

Barbarian’s player: [rolls a d20]
Barbarian’s player: [rolls a nat 1]
Me: And that is why you don’t mess with me and my goddess.

Compton native Brandon Jennings really wanted to show out in his return to L.A on Sunday, and he did just that, scoring 15 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and making this sweet-as-hell fast-break fake-out feed to Courtney Lee to help the Knicks knock off the Lakers.

summary: farkle is on a study abroad tip in london for a semester and riley really misses him, please enjoy! This is obviously mature content so viewer discretion is advised, but they are both around 19 at this point!

Sang Woo stated in chapter 14 that he is 20 years old. Now I don’t think this is true. He also claims he have not been in the military yet. But yet the police officer talks about him being back from the army. This man knows Sang Woo.
So, what could Sang Woo’s real age be?
In South Korea you finish high school when you’re 19. Yoon Bum must have known Sang Woo at university, otherwise, where would he have gotten his name and image from?
Sang Woo must have been over 19 at this point in the story, perhaps he had even done his military training as it seems odd to spend a couple of months at university before being conscripted. But perhaps this is common? If not, he would have been 21 in the first scenes, and with two years of military service at the same time as Yoon Bum, he would be 23 years old. I am not at all sure if I mean not sure if that is Korean age, or Western though.
Sang Woo’s age feel like such a mess! But what about Yoon Bum?
(Yoon Bum talking about when he first saw Sang Woo, from chapter 1)
Yoon Bum entered college four years late. Like I mentioned; in South Korea you graduate high school at 19, and if it is common to go straight to college after high school that mean that Yoon Bum is 23 when he enters college “four years late”. He also attends college for 1 year (he sees Sang Woo in his second semester) before his conscription, making him 24 before going into the military. The military is 2 years, so he should be around 26?
And he probably don’t start stalking Sang Woo the moment he gets out of college, so maybe one can add one year to them both? But this is my theory about their ages!
(pardon any mistakes, please correct me if I got any information wrong!)
short little headcanon / slight canon divergence regarding joshua’s appearance b/c my josh looks a little different than he does in - game almost always , post & pre - game.
the secret reports seem to imply , imo , that joshua tuning into the RG requires a forced change in his age , making him resemble a teenage boy. however , given literally no one else seems to have this issue & are more than capable of retaining their set age when moving between the UG & the RG , i am ignoring any idea that joshua has no say in his appearance — rather , he made a conscious decision to tune his vibe further down than necessary to resemble a child , as he felt it would be easier to interact with his proxy , a teenage boy , at an age that appeared close to neku’s own.
with that said , josh does not look like that the majority of the time. rather , he resembles a ~ 20 year old man , settled in height - wise at a solid 5 ‘ 11 “ & his hair is longer , stopping roughly mid - back & his features are slightly more defined / matured as well. for the sake of not throwing neku & co. for a loop , he will take up his teenage appearance for a while post - game generally only with them , unless he has some other reason to be masquerading as a child , though this stops around the time everyone is 18 - 19 years of age as he can fit in with them , appearance wise , in his ‘ regular ’ form without it looking odd to outsiders.
sometimes he’ll take up his teenage form for fun or just for the hell of it , but most commonly he does resemble an adult and prefers to look that way.
