The tables in this section extend the information about generating starting and maximum age, height, and weight for player characters (presented in chapter 6 of the Player’s Handbook) to include all of the races detailed here.
Table of Contents

Age
You can choose or randomly generate your character’s age. If you choose it, it must be at least the minimum age for the character’s race and class (see the table below). Your character’s minimum starting age is the adulthood age of his or her race plus the number of dice indicated in the entry corresponding to the character’s race and class on the table.
Alternatively, refer to this table and roll dice to determine how old your character is:

Dwarf (any)  40 years  +3d6  +5d6  +7d6 
Elf (any)  110 years  +4d6  +6d6  +10d6

With age, a character’s physical ability scores decrease and his or her mental ability scores increase (see the table below). The effects of each aging step are cumulative. However, none of a character’s ability scores can be reduced below 1 in this way.
When a character reaches venerable age, secretly roll his or her maximum age, which is the number from the Venerable column on the table below plus the result of the dice roll indicated on the Maximum Age column on that table, and record the result, which the player does not know. A character who reaches his or her maximum age dies of old age at some time during the following year.
The maximum ages are for player characters. Most people in the world at large die from pestilence, accidents, infections, or violence before getting to venerable age.

Height and Weight
The dice roll given in the Height Modifier column determines the character’s extra height beyond the base height. That same number multiplied by the dice roll or quantity given in the Weight Modifier column determines the character’s extra weight beyond the base weight.
