At the risk of being a rules lawyer, PHB p. 93, is the original
source for height/weight/age tables for the races. It has a nice non-
computer language explination. The ones in the LST files is the
randomly determined form.
Interesting thought: D20 has a form for ageing penalties. It'd be
neat to have a way to show that. I think probably the easiest way
would be 3 templates for the different stages, with the latter stages
having a prereq of having the previous template. I think I'll look
at the template files and see if I can't come up with suitable
templates to UL to the community. It might take a while; I haven't
even looked at the template format.
