So the implications here for gnomes & dwarves:If age of maturity is 40 (which I'm guessing is the equivalent of 18 for humans), then that means that all new player-characters are at least that old -- maybe a few years younger, but no more. A 30 year old dwarf/gnome would roughly be the mental/physical equivalent of a 13 year old human; that might be possible for a PC that young to be an adventurer, but on the rare side, and likely no younger. Since we're at -- what, year 30 of the official timeline? 35? -- this means that all gnome & dwarf PCs were around for the fall of Lordaeron and the rise of the current Horde (including the orcs & the Forsaken). Iiiiiinteresting.

Well, one thing which I think could be used credibly is the concept of physical maturity vs. the age of majority. A long lived race could reach physical adulthood well before they reached the level of education which the society would consider a person wise enough to be responsible for his or her own decisions.With the disruptions of the Third War or the Cataclysm, it is quite possible that there are younger Nelfs and Draenei for example who never had the opportunity to receive a full education.
