I know it won't make a difference for most of the short-lived races, such as humans and the like, but elves, irda, and dwarves would see a little bit of a difference.|
Over the span of five-hundred years, about forty years would be added to the lifespan of the races. For elves, it adds about sixty-seventy years on to their lifespan. For humans it would add about six years, which isn't that bad.
Like I said, I am being way to analytical.

But how would they live longer? I'm just thinking 30 years in our calendar are the same 30 years on Ansalon just following a different calendar (that goes by quicker).

Caramon's earth age come out to be 87...which while is still old, is better than 95. heh heh
But, I really don't think it matters. Human's in D&D just have a longer life span (average) than humans on earth.
