How old is this City?
Grubman's original City History only states that Sir Hensley buit his castle on top of the ancient ruins, and the town developed around the castle quite quickly.
But how long ago did this happen?
How much history does this city have to look back upon?
10 years? 25? 40?
I think we are well into the 2nd generation of inhabitants, so about 40 years of recent history. The foundations, sewers and dungeons under the city are very old however...

How old is Sir Hensley? Is he still a mighty warrior, and formidable foe for anyone foolish enough to attack his realm? Or is he an old man, barely able to get up from his throne without assistance?
I would guess that his best warrior days are behind him, but he is still a wise lord and cunning strategist. Whoever details the Castle might want to flesh out why the City is a formidible place for enemies to attack...

About 40 at the most.

First and second generation mostly, I would think.
Hope this helps.
