Seems no one visited the site for a long time and it was deleted by invision.

Sad to hear, some great history there

Sorry I suppressed a post by accident, not sure how.

Oops did it again, stupid phone.

Well, Hello I guess! Sorry for busting in on your conversation, though i'm not entirely sure how this game works.

At last! Seven months after the last average lifespan increase of a year, we've hit that mark again! The average lifespan in my nation is now 24 years.

At this rate, I should reach the real-world average in another 28 years or so.

Real world you say? 🤔

This is interesting. So what you are saying is that you currently have the life span that characters in the biblical world had. Consider women gave birth at age 12-14 and by 22 were old brooms and grandmothers.

Unfortunately. And yet scientific advancement is ridiculously advanced. I'm just going to postulate that my people are all aliens with a very short lifespan. Hmm, maybe they're Tau? That fits.

No, that is a misunderstanding of how averages work. The average lifespan wasn't that low because everyone died in their 20s, it was that low because the majority of babies died before the age of 5. If out of 10 children, one lives to be 40, another 60, another 80, and the rest dies at age 5, the average lifespan of those 10 is 21.
