Re: [gwmg] - Old School Gamma GM here with question - generations

Generally speaking, a "generation" is considered to be the time it takes for one generation to be born and reproduce. For people, the term usually means about 25-33 years (time to be born, grow up and have one or more kids). The absolute low end for humans would be maybe 15 years per in a high-birthrate, high/early deathrate situation. End result in this case, minimum time for 3 generations would be about 45 yrs; likely time span for 3 generations would be around 75 yrs.
