Default Lunzie

just how old is Lunzie?
I dont know how old Sassinak is but she's her great, great, great ??(great) grandmother
allowing 25 years for a generation shes at least 125 years older than Sassinak! and she slept for ~75yrs at one point!

Gosh, I think I actually worked this out once... but I can't remember the details thoguh!

She's still physically younger than Sassinak once they meet up though, IIRC.

::snort:: I should have known! The timeline I was thinking of was made by none other than our very own Cheryl! Here's the link. Hope it helps, Edith.

http://mccaffrey.srellim.org/series/dpp-intro.htm

Doesn't actually say when Sassinak and Lunzie were born, but if you figure that they meet in 2898, then that gives Sassinak a birthday of 2852.
My personal guess is that Lunzie may have been born around 2749, working backward and assuming she did not age during each sleep. So she should have been about 150. Course, this is only cause my memory insists she was physically 43 in 2898, according to Cheryl's timeline, which is actually for reading order of the books. Haven't read them in a long time...

Found this too, off the same site: http://mccaffrey.srellim.org/series/dpp-plot.htm


Not going to argue the 2755 date for Lunzie, which turns out to be close to my date, but I'm still not sure where she got all that from...CHERYL! Where are you?

hense i lost 1 divided by in an equation.
he knew i'd get it wrong!
we have v similar exam-except he doesnt do quantum so we walked to t'other campus for the exam together.
he turned up at 7.30ish for breakfast as his canteen was closed and i'm self catering. mind you he was very nice and washed up after himself!

Ah... I barely got past HS Algebra, so I have no idea what you're talking about! Not that it matters. That was considerate, that he cleaned up after himself.

Here I am! I guess I completely missed seeing this topic had been added to a year ago...

The dates came directly from the books, mostly from Death of Sleep. Jody Nye seems to like to provide details like that, whereas we'd never have seen dates if Anne wrote the book exclusively.

Better late than never, Cheryl...
Yeah I love that detail of Jody's.

And I did see a few more dates when I finally had the chance to re-read the books after all.
