One of the formulas listed as an example for the fourth level of Alchemy in Sorcerer: Revised is a potion of longevity. Success seems to produce a year's worth of the regime of drugs that slows the aging process to one month for every year that they take the regime of drugs (they age one month every day that they lose access to their drugs until they reach their true age). A character who started the regime at age 25 would be physically 50 when they reached the age of 325 (they would be physically 75 when they reached the age of 625 and physically 100 when they reached the age of 925). With that type of longevity available from the efforts of Sorcerers, why would any Mage bother with using True Magick to retard aging, especially since it causes Pattern Bleed and Permanent Paradox after the first century or so?
