Role-Play ++

This presents a good opportunity for adding Roleplaying elements to the Character.

Species of characters with an especially long life have a “Long Life Thread”. Those with the time are unhurried in their decision-making. Its less about how much longer than normal humanoids they live, but how they live their life. They are generally more calm, less hurried. They examine information slowly, test and verify everything. There are few Compulsions and the are hesitant to make quick Bonds. Often more stoic and reserved, they are less likely to cave to time constraints. Formal activity takes longer, the speed of study and assimilation of information is different than those with shorter life threads; Interaction with such is typically distanced and without the entanglements of fleeting passions and immediacies of context. Sometimes it is utterly incompatible because the paces are ridiculously different. This means certain mystical powers may have a different affect on them.
