If I roleplay with someone, I will need to know their age before we start. This is not merely for the reasons of the obvious potential legal pitfalls. It's for the sake of my own comfort. Folks, I turn 55 in February. It would feel super weird and awkward to me to find out I am playing with someone that is under 25, let alone under 18. I am not asking because I intend to dump on people who are underage, and there are still things I am willing to do, like help people develop their skill and help them to construct RPs and characters to be enjoyed with others.
