How Many PCs Have You Had?
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:48:57 AM »
I've had 137 pcs. I haven't died in a really long time. Its not that I always stick to low-level aides or House crafters, I just like a 'vanilla' lifestyle, the perspective of a completely normal person of low or very low rank. One of the 90 or 99%, think its closer to 90 once you start counting out the hunters and mercenaries. The excitement, fear, poisonings and contracts other players find normal are something special for me. I find this a bonus. I imagine I'm pretty boring to watch.

I have about a dozen pcs from a previous account that weren't counted but they were all stark raving newbies so they don't really count.

I have this really weird desire to experience death again, because its been so long and I enjoy revisiting clans/roles/experiences that I've had before.

I bet some of you have had 1000 pcs. Old-timers from the days of Thrain Ironsword.
Do yourself a favor, and play Resident Evil 4 again.

Not from the days of Iron Thrainsword (started in 2002), I've had 134 characters in total (with significant breaks from the game over the years).

I counted them when I created the current one: 17 since 2003 / 2004.

I even kind of remember all of them. I don't play throwaway PCs 'cuz I only enjoy the game if I'm super stoked about my character concept. 2 PCs were sort of an experiment, though, and both of these got stored.

45 since about 2003/2004 when I started college. Most died because "I gotta kill that duskhorn for zero reasons!" and getting devastated.

Of the 45, there have been maybe 6 that had any real impact on anything, and the majority were recent. Now that I understand how to just sit around and RP, not facecheck every scrab I see.

Currently on PC number 50, starting 2012. I do suck at this game.

Around 150 since 2007. Most of those are early on or in random spurts. The vast majority are mundane.

I've probably learned the most about the game in the past 20 though. With some of my longest lived, strongest, and best explorers.

27 since 2001, 9 of them being short-lived newbie characters in that first year. So basically 18 since 2004 due to a long break after the first year.

Hundreds.

Most of them are super short lived. It usually takes a few between ones I actually get into.

The longest lived of them was about a RL year. They were a fairly well known rogue witch about a half a decade ago.

26 since 2001. I took 2 or 3 several year breaks though, from like 2005-2008(mostly due to college) and then I was on and off from 2013-2014.

I had about 10 of those that were under 5 days played
About 7 that ranged from 10-20 days
33 days
45 days
60 days
66 days
96 days

TWO half-giants, though I really only really played one of them. I tried a dwarf once and a half-elf once. They didn't last long. Did a wiggler once, and they lasted like a second.

Almost all my PCs were Merchants, Warriors, or Rangers.

Ranger: 6
Warrior: 11(mostly under 5 days played)
Merchant: 6(none under 10, and most 30+)

My PCs are horrible at taking risks. :-D

I think about 79 now, since 2002. Something like that.

Been a while since I've looked at my account notes. It's somewhere in the 20s since characters were tracked, a few before that so around 27 I'd guess.

17 total, most memorable to me being my most badass warrior who worked for Kurac, Wyrm, and the first Burglar I played, Grelch, who in less than 2 days played got into more shit than I managed on 24 days with Wyrm. There's one more I really enjoyed, but was only about 6 months ago.

Most deaths are to other players/storage, and shortest life was on my first assassin, who poisoned himself 2 hours in, closely followed by my first southerner encountering a scrab and dying at 3 hours in.

I've had about 113 characters since 1998.  Most of them were insignificant nobodies who impacted things at the time but were quickly forgotten.  About 7 of those were gladiator-only PC's.

2 nobles.  0 templars.  <8 mages.  A few muls, a few half-giants (notable that I played my first mul and first whiran on character 8 via special application).  Lots of elves, city and desert (though I stopped playing desert elves when I was no longer able to write up my own tribe; difference between iso and too iso is too big for me).

The last 10 PC's I've played started living dramatically longer than before.  I mean -dramatically- longer.

Modify:
Death counts:
NPC soldier:10
PC:34
Humanoid NPC: 17
Misc NPC (beasts and such):20
Death trap:
Staff Fury:1 (2)
Staff Roleplay: 4 (5)

Left off a bunch that I wasn't sure of/gladiator deaths because those are gimme PK deaths.  Last two have a parentheses number because of one instance where I broke into a staff PC's mansion and had three iterations of the same NPC chase me around the city, dying twice in the process, until she got me.  Roleplay, but...not...roleplay.

Moe wins the thread.  ;D

Anyway, since y'all posted lists...


  1) Shari - Dead
  2) Amyra - Dead
  3) Serene - Stored (IC suicide with the help of her loving partner for very good reasons)
  4) Mylene - Stored (Experiment #1)
  5) Debrah - Dead
  6) Anjuli - Stored
  7) Neri - Dead
  8 ) Mirya - Stored (Experiment #2 and also a pretty bad idea at the time)
  9) Alys - Dead
  10) Zachary - Stored
  11) Sheva - Dead
  12) Semira - Dead (rogue Krathi with two IC brothers. Super fun, in part thanks to the best Whiran PC I ever played with - anyone remember Gwoshi?)
  13) Kairi - Stored
  14) Aishe - Stored (Asha, gypo, who retired successful and happy, though she would have been happier if her Nash didn't die)
  15) Laya - Dead (Lucky, mindbender. Best friends any of my PCs ever had. Titless trio 4ever)
  16) Ayane - Dead (I can't for the life of me remember her nickname, but she was the leggy, face-inked young woman - a rinther who refused to speak until she picked up the southsider accent and was always worried about her uncle or his thugs finding her. Wore a veil most of the time. She was super fun, mostly thanks to a combination of intricate family concept, Decameron <3, and Lantry as her Byn sarge.)
  17) Djabenusiri - Stored (could have been awesome, if not for... reasons. 3 year break ensued.)
  18) * - Alive and somewhere near you

Almost all of them used nicknames so I hardly recognize their real names myself. 12-16 were probably my all time favorites, with the exception of 13 who got stored very early on to play my gypsy. Sorry, Lexie and Bixan, who had evil plans for that character. I didn't really go to Cenyr.  :P

Statistics:

2 pickpockets
2 Assassins
2 Vivaduans
2 Merchants
3 Whirans
2 Warriors
1 Drovian
1 Krathi
1 Gypsy
1 Psionicist
1 current mystery

If anyone remembers Ayane's nickname that she used ingame, please let me know!
