It did. Thank you. On point one. Sorry, I was kinda talking out my ass. I mean we can assume they do since the two examples I had in my head would point to that. Dante(Blood angels) Has lived for over 1k years and he is not dead, if im correct it is never stated or implied that he is 'getting old' as if living over a millennium would even slow him down. In actuality it makes him a better warrior. The other example I had is with Bjorn who is stuck in a metal box on life support. One would think a crippled marine that is only living due to having a bunch of tubes and other medical support systems stuck in them would not live as long, yet he is the oldest living marine. I think it a safe assumption to make that marines live for a very very very very long time, one could even say they are immortal... But I did not fully understand the mentor system until I read it again and read your reply. So now I have no problem with Characters life spans, so there is no need for a debate on something irrelevant. But I was wondering if you thought about the lack of 'friendship' this will cause between characters(unless we all change char at the same time in waves and all our new ones know each other). I mean how many missions is ROB in? 9? And that is 359 pages worth and several months. If every mission/battle is about 2 weeks and every 2 missions we change out characters, there is not too much 'broships' we will make for each characters.
