    Ok, I found it and you're right...2 -3 months (I may ignore it though...it isn't official as it isn't published in anything).

    Next question though: On what pages of SxS does it say how old Ben is??? I just recently finished it, and I couldn't find it...any help here would be hot.

    First paragraph on p. 525. Starts with "Give me a break."

    Mavrick...
    "Ok, I found it and you're right...2 -3 months (I may ignore it though...it isn't official as it isn't published in anything)."

    True. However, you at least have to recognize that ignoring it poses a risk to the quality. She will have passed that information on to everyone else, from LFL to later authors like Denning, etc. So, they will be using her "thoughts" on Ben's birth as a guide for anything they do.

    I know author's comments aren't "official," while some take them as such. However, they do help establish things like this. I'd suggest trying to conform to the two-month-before-BP as the moment of conception as best as possible, regardless if you assume it is 2-earth-months or 2-GS-months.

    Yes, after posting that comment I did resort to using it. Frankly, I have to agree with Bib that the NJO does have to start at a later point then what we originally thought. Heck, even my original timeline was flawed. I had Balance Point starting 11 months after VP.

    Anyway, the NJO now starts early off in the 26th year ASW4...however, this can also now mean we can salvage those YJK age references. YJK books 12 - 14 can now still take place 25 years ASW4!
