Hahahah, I know of one death of Xanous's. Maybe he's had only two characters ;->

Some people have all the luck.... (Or mad skill as the CS forums would contest)

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.

...had at least 100 days on him, for sure, and probably a lot more. I remember when he passed the 100 day mark ;)

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?

I think Radoon hit the 150 day mark. But I am not 100% sure.

I remember Radoon was the first person I saw disarm, and the weapon get tossed into another room. -That- was awesome.

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.

Radoon's Player: hmm... only about 110 days or so...


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

I had a character who was around for 3 yrs RL...I have no idea how many actual playing hours.  However the rock has long surpassed me in both catagories I'm sure.  Stupid rock.

Damn rocks.

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.

Quote from: "Crystal D"

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?  

-Crystal D



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.
