The x year rule - how do you usually see it used? Should it be to do with the real life age of the pb, or age-appropriate to the icons used? I always thought it was to do with the real life age, nothing to do with icons used. So I couldn't play Eric Dane (guy in my icon) at 24, because he's 43 - I could play him anywhere from 36 to 50 in a game with the seven year rule, for example.
But I have someone wanting to use a pb in a game I run who is using the age appropriate in the icons reason. I have the seven year rule in effect and it's been in effect for a long time. But on the other hand, is this a modly hill to die on, when the icons do work as a younger character?
