Dalma Humphreys - born in which year?
« on: 22 June 2014, 17:18:30 »
Dalma Humphreys' age or year of birth was not stated until Masters and Minions: The StarCorps Dossiers, where it's said she was born in "3011 (61 in 3076)" in her bio on p. 72. This is obviously wrong, as the numbers don't add up. The Errata for Masters and Minions don't mention this issue.

In the (apocryphal) German-only Andurien Wars novels Dalma is reportedly ten years old in 3029, suggesting she was born in 3018 or 3019.

I'm inclined to say the correct year should be 3015: Brush Wars establishes (on p. 57, sidebar) that Richard Humphreys was born in 2998, the fifth child of Dame Catherine Humpreys (between Laurence, born 2994, and Louise, born 3001). On p. 82 it is explicitly confirmed that Dalma Humphreys is Richard's daughter. Unless Richard fathered a child at age 13 this seems to rule out that Dalma could have been born in 3011.

Can we get an official clarification please? BattleTechWiki Admin
