How long to reach level 50?

Hey all, It's been awhile since I last played Sojourn/Toril (over a decade) but I've been getting this tickling itch to start playing again (and potentially leveling up to 50). Before I start, I have two major questions that I was hoping you guys could help answer. They aren't going to have perfect ...
