Apologies if this has already been discussed at some point, but this 
question has been nagging me:

Just how old is Morrolan?

It is said in several places that he was born near the beginning of the 
Interregnum (possibly even right before Adron's Disaster).

Yet, In "Paths of the Dead", (while he still thinks of himself as an 
Easterner) he says to Miska, "A hundred years is too long for me, good 
Miska; I doubt I shall live that long."

Since this is 156 years into the Interregnum, it appears that Morrolan is 
already half again as old as this WHEN HE MAKES THIS STATEMENT. 

It seems unlikely that he was born more than a year or two after Adron's 
Disaster, however, since his father perished during the catyclysm.

Can we chalk this one up to Paarfi misquoting Morrolan in PotD? Or is 
there a more mundane explanation?
