Okay, so I was checking Julien's ability points, and I am wondering how I did my math originally, and how you calculated his age at almost 28. Perhaps I should not be doing arithmetic at this hour, or perhaps I am really confused ...
At age 27, he should have 45 xp for early childhood, and 15 per year for 22 years, plus an extra 50 for the educated virtue. That's 45 + 15(22) + 50 = 425, right? (That's not including Native Language or Magic Lore, both of which are "free".)
For his abilities, not including Magic Lore and Native Language, he has:
1 @ score 1 (5xp) = 5
3 @ score 2 (15xp) = 45
5 @ score 3 (30xp) = 150
4 @ score 4 (50xp) = 200
1 @ score 5 (75xp) = 75
That's 5 + 45 + 150 + 200 + 75 = 475.
Which is well over age 28; actually 5 points beyond age 30, right?
Have we both done the math wrong? I have no problem adjusting the character, either by age or by abilities. Right now, I'm just worried about my accounting skills. What am I missing here?
