My current character is 11 months old in RL. I don't think that's the record, though.
I've been away from Zalanthas for some time, but I still think you all are kank shit. Don't worry, I'll come back and fix it up. By the way, has anyone found, like, water? This desert is getting old.

There is no requirement for being in the militia, just make your character and ask a templar about it, in the game.  It's easy, but you probably will have to go through a year of Byn training.

I've had a character alive for.... 19 months IRL. Yeah, pretty risque business too. Well, not too risky, but you know.. I could've gotten stepped on by a bahamet, or run through by a halfling or something..

Oh, but I've seen characters alive for over 2 rl years, so yeah, I'm not the record either ;->

And Krath, Tek has been alive for 13 or so RL years right? Damn that player must be getting bored  :twisted:

To figure out who holds a record for longest lived character, you first have to decide what you want to measure that by.

If you took, for instance, the amount of real time that had passed during the life of the character (as in, a character that was created in March of 2001 and died the following June, thus living for two months) then the record would probably go to a PC rock. Yes, a rock. A well endowed rock, but a rock nonetheless. Last time I heard said PC was up to about seven or eight years.

If you wanted to measure by playing time (as in, a character that has lived up to 4 days and 16 hours of playing time) then I have no idea who would hold the record. But my personal best, and a number I suspect to be on the high end of playing times, was about 210 days.

So take that for what it's worth. Which is not a lot.

Well the skills suck and you don't get to do much exploring or socializing, but on the upside all the aggro mobs ignore you.  You are basically immortal unless a crafter finds you.   :twisted:

I'm notorious (at least in my own world) for having short lived PCs.  My record in a long while of playing is something like forty days or so, but that's probably exaggerating.  I do know of a few of the 'great' characters who lived FOREVER and a day.  If you go back to some of the old school Blackwings... wow, did those guys EVER die?

I can't beat Lsmft's 210 day PC but I did have a pc that had about 160 days.  Given that it was my very first Armageddon PC, I'd have to say that was some kind of record.  8)

My current PC is 13 1/2 months old and I've logged 56 days of playing during that time.

I'm sure that's not even a record for current PC's, but I am curious...

One character of mine got to about 120 days over about 2 years RL.  I think that's more than all my other character combined.

Before the Gith Armies of Doom (tm) showed up, having a long-lived combat character was pretty easy as long as remembered to travel in groups all the time.

Well, hmm.  I'm not sure of exact numbers, but anything over 200 days of playing time would put someone pretty easily into the top 5 or fewer, I'd guess.  And that's much harder to do these days than it used to be, IMO.

RL time since creation is a whole other ball of wax.  There's a tiny few (well, come to think of it, maybe just one) that still exist in the database from around 10 RL years ago, and I'd guess quite a lot from 5 or more RL years ago.  But I'd say *all* of them have had extensive periods of time during which they were not played at all.  The vast, vast majority of current characters would be 2 RL years or less.  Those same few that have been around for about 2 years would also have (generally) greater than 40 or 50 days of playing time.  If you combine the two (say, greather than 2 RL years since creation and greather than 50 days of playing time), and limit it to currently "active" characters, it's probably less than 5.

But, 2 RL years is a long time IC (hell, and OOC), plenty long for most characters to live very full lives.  And plenty long to see lots of other characters die.  Muhahah.

I've got a buddy that played a very well known (in his time) PC, pretty sure he had it for a few years if anyone remembers Radoon (spelling).
He's gotta rank up there pretty good, not sure about how much PT he had though.

Then again, I may be wrong.

My longest lived char was a recent one of mine, he had 43 days on him. I only played him for six months, and two of those months were from me taking a break. Thats what playing for 15 hours (sometimes more) a day gets ya.

I guess my longest would be my 53 day warrior. I had had her for about 5 months only too, playing the whole time. That's like 7 ic years. She had such a stupid death to. I wonder how many newbies Halaster killed with that Naki Army Camp that used to be up north?

There's a currently active (i.e. played regularly) PC that is approaching 200 days played.  I believe he's been around about 2 and a half RL years, if I'm not mistaken.

Well I had a character that stayed alive for 5 rl months but I also put about 10 hours a day play time on him on average. Thats back in the day when I played all the time because I had nothing better to do. So, I had around 1100 to 1400 playing hours on him.
ou can not trust anything that bleeds for five days and dose not die.

My first character lived 35 or something I think. Maybe it was 45, I forget. My second lived like 10... then I had a slew of 2-or-so-day charactes. My current one is at a couple days but isn't going to die anytime soon, as far as I can tell.

I don't think I've ever had a character die under the 2-day mark.

For some reason I thought he had like twice that but I guess I was wrong. 100+ days is still damn good.

Had a character live for just over a year RL, about 50 some days play time.

Thing is, he was a spy and accrued tons of death sentences from all over the place for ratting people out.

Funny thing is, he died to a gith...  Go figure.

Aye, unfortunately, everyone dies.  Even that old biddy Mordaga, though Malkah was probably the longest lived Blackwing in terms of RL years.

I know this doesn't count as he's not a PC... but long ago, before I ever joined staff, my Blackwing and Azroen's used to see who could sire more bastard half-elves.  A couple of NPC half-elves who resembled our PCs showed up after awhile.  Last time I played, I noticed my character's kid was still working as a guard in Luirs, 10 RL years later. :)  The copper-skinned half-elf or something like that, keyword: tambastard.
