This thread will be focusing on the inconsistencies surrounding the canonical ages of Alexander, Warlic, and Jaania.
It is suggested previous to the Alexander saga that the duel happened centuries ago, with various irregularities. While design notes have said he was apprenticed 200 years ago, Nythera is said to have been apprenticed to WARLIC 200 years ago, and to have been considered her father's "old friend".
Yet, during the saga itself, we meet several people still alive to this day, back during the reign of King Slugwrath. it's also worth noting, Xan owed a favor in Bassalt's Assault. Perhapse he helped with Xan's recovery post-duel?
To make things worse, Doug Digg, a dwarf who was there for Xan's burning down of the villiage as a child, arrived in Lymcrest a mere 89 years ago, setting the Duel less than 80 years previous, supporting the idea that it happened shortly before Alteon's revolution.
(I can't thank the numerous players for their contributions individually. To see who contributed, look at the thread titled "Continutiy goof up?" )
