After graduating from the Heroes Guild, the minimum and maximum ages for your Hero are 18 and 65. He cannot die from old age. You can make your Hero look younger in three different ways:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
1. PREVENTION - After you graduate from the Heroes Guild, ageing occurs only when you spend the XP's you acquire at the green glowing XP fountain at the Guild. Thus, every time you level up one of your Hero's abilities he will age approximately 0.7 years. If you never level anything up, he will never grow older than 18.

2. SACRIFICE (Chapel of Skorm) - If you have levelled your Hero's abilities you can obtain an age reduction of 2 to 10 years from the Chapel of Skorm by sacrificing victims to Skorm. The more evil points you receive in one sacrifice, the better your age reduction will be. The maximum number of evil points you can receive in one sacrifice is 1,000. The best way to facilitate this is:
... i. It is best to have your Hero's true moral alignment opposite of the place at which he is sacrificing (or donating). Therefore, when making sacrifices at the Chapel of Skorm, it is optimal for your Hero's true moral alignment (tattoos and armour do not count) to be 100% good.
... ii. Sacrifice any physically large character. The two large Mercenaries (the Bandit camp and the Temple of Avo) work best.
... iii. Your sacrifice should be at 100% health (you can use the Heal spell for this, if need be).
... iv. Sacrifice them at the top of any hour. The top of an hour is marked when a Mercenary takes his pay, or at midnight when you hear a Bandit say:
"Lights out you horrible lot!"
... v. After you have made your sacrifice, make certain you hear this key guttural phrase from one of Skorm's Acolytes:
"Your desire for my evil influence is gratifying. You will go far."
Hearing that phrase, coupled with receiving 1,000 evil points in one sacrifice, will give you your best opportunity at receiving the maximum (10 years) age reduction.

3. DONATE (Temple of Avo) - Again, if you have levelled your Hero's abilities you can obtain an age reduction of 2 to 10 years from the Temple of Light (Avo) by donating gold. In this case the opposite is true; the more good points you receive in one donation (beforehand), the better your age reduction will be. The maximum number of good points you can receive in one donation is 1,000. The best way to facilitate this is:
... i. It is best to have your Hero's true moral alignment opposite of the place at which he is donating (or sacrificing). Therefore, when making donations at the Temple of Avo, it is optimal for your Hero's true moral alignment (tattoos and armour do not count) to be 100% evil.
... ii. If you have a Mercenary with you, donate at midday or noon, right when he takes his pay.
... iii. Sentinus - After you have made your initial donation, make certain you hear this key phrase from one of Avo's Acolytes:
"The gods are pleased by your donation, very pleased"
Hearing that phrase, coupled with receiving 1,000 good points, is best.
... iv. Gift of Youth - Upon receiving the Sentinus, and after making your Hero 100% evil again, return and donate exactly one gold piece to gain the Gift of Youth. You will hear the phrase:
"Your rewards will be slight... A rare miracle has occurred. Avo grants you the gift of youth."
... v. Hearing those two phrases, coupled with receiving 1,000 good points when you received the Sentinus, will give you your best opportunity at receiving the maximum (10 years) age reduction.

* NOTE: You can combine steps two and three to yield the maximum results; a 20 year age reduction. It is also important to note that you should not attempt either steps two or three until after you have done all the levelling you plan on doing because if you continue leveling up your Hero after the age reduction(s), he will begin to age again as you increase his attributes and other abilities.
