I think I was about 13 when I read the first chronicles, a little older when I read the second. I don't think I fully understood it then, though. I got a lot more out of it when I read it for the second time last year.

About 16. I read LFB in about a week, then within two months had both Chronicles fully absorbed. I was hooked! Smile

I think I was 15 or 16 when I read the 1st and 2nd Chrons, I'd just caught up when TWGW was published in England, which would have been in 1980?

I was around twenty when I read LFB (it is still the only SRD translated to Hungarian), and then after one or two years I went to the US and bought the rest of the Chronicles.

I was 16 when I read the 1st Chronicles, as the 2nd Chronicles came out I read them. I try to re-read them every 2-3 years.

I was 21 when I read the 1st Chrons; the 2d Chrons came out a couple of years later, and I read them as they were published, so, early to mid 20s for the lot.
