A multiclassed character automatically starts at the oldest age for that race for the class with the oldest age of all those followed, on the assumption that having invested the time to learn more than one profession the character started the last one late, and so finished it at the most advanced age appropriate to that class.

Krynn rules state that a Wizard of High Sorcery begins training in childhood and becomes a Level 1 (Student) upon reaching "adulthood". Since that age has varied in different lands and cultures, with typical ages of 13, 16, 18, 21, 24, and 30, the referee will have to determine what age constitutes "adult" in the wizard culture of the player character.
(MyWorld rules assume that any race for which ages are not given have the same age categories as humans; some referees assume that Korobokuru are treated as dwarfs and Spirit Folk are treated as Elves.)
Other races are found on this chart:
In the MyWorld campaign, there is a twelve-month year of thirty-day months; every third year an additional month is added (to bring the solar and lunar characters back together). The player needs to roll two twelve-sided dice; the first is number of the month in which the character is born (in alphabetical order, skipping alternate letters, Adrus, Condor, Equus, Gigant, Ichthus, Kantron, Mantor, Ovex, Quizmire, Silvan, Ubrecht, Wiltag), unless the second matches, in which case the character is born in the last month (Ysor). A roll of d30 will pinpoint the date within the month on which the character will age to the next year.
Referees with different calendars will of course require a different method of determining date of birth.
