    char name[20];
    char vclass[20];
    char race[20];
    int age[2000];



    cout<<"Welcome to quest for the holy pistol!"<<endl;
    cout<<"The name of the character: ";
    cin.getline(name, 20, '\n');

    cout<<"Pick a class: ";
    cin.getline(vclass, 20, '\n');

    cout<<"Pick a race: ";
    cin.getline(race, 20, '\n');

    two things that stand out.

    >cin.getline(age, 2000, '\n');

    why is this 2000.

    >cout<<"Name:"<<name<<;

    note the extra ilegal '<<' before the semi colon

    >>cin.getline(age, 2000, '\n');<<

    Also, no need for this or int age[2000]; for that matter.

    Just

    Code:
    int age;
    
    and
    
    cin>>age;
    shall suffice

    cout<<"The name of the character: ";
    cin.getline(name, 20);

    cout<<"Pick a class: ";
    cin.getline(vclass, 20);

    cout<<"Pick a race: ";
    cin.getline(race, 20);

    cout<<"Age of the character: ";
    cin>>age;

    cout<<"Name:"<<name<<endl;
