One of the reasons why the names cant be recognized is because a lot of people use nicknames and keywords and such.

And holy crap. 98 characters.

20 were stored, including one called "DiddleAlittle"

The rest died. At least 20 or so of these deaths were by Players. Of which I am proud.

The rest were NPCs, falls, starvation, etc. I learned the game the 'hard' (stupid) way.

But I do not play safely :). Once tried to pickpocket a Red Robe while being dragged by my long ear through the templarate quarter, while being totally plastered (/end brag)

My first character was in 2001.  I didn't play again for a year and then when I did I had about three years of insignificant nobodies. 
I was without a computer from 2005-2009, so there was no Armventuring then.  I returned in 2009 for another year of fairly insignificant nobodies. 

Of my first 34 characters:
17 died with less than five hours played
15 died with 5-23 hours played
1 made it 1 day, 8 hours
1 made it two whole days

Then in 2010, with my 35th character, I had my weirdo half-elf with 49d8hr on him over the two and a half years I played him.

Since 2010 I've had eight PCs total, but the one who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got gortoked at 13 hours doesn't really count.
Of my last eight characters (2010-present) six of them have had 24+ days played.  I'm not really sure what clicked in 2010, but something did.

I've had 42 characters in total.
25 half-elves
10 elves
4 humans
3 dwarves
2 clanned (one in Kurac and one in the Byn)

I've never stored a character but I have had many an uneventful death.  A handful of memorable ones, but mostly uneventful deaths. 
Like Dar, I stubbornly learned the game the 'hard' way!

I've learned why longevity is something to really, at least a few times, strive for.

Longer lived chars have an effect on the more rapidly dying chars around them, and their actions can shift the immediate pc culture in ways 30+ chars can't, because there's almost a seniority that comes in any clan for simply having been there, and alive. Outside of clans, less mainstream plots and mini-rpts gain more momentum when those popular chars are involved, just because of sheer inertia, and moreso, new chars being influenced by the ooc knowledge of who's alive and active.

Just having 90% of the playerbase aware your char exists is an achievement that drives a lot of conflict and brings a lot of roleplay opportunity. If you're a raider who's killed a newbie, but you did it well, that newbie won't be as afraid to be raider by the same char, and might relish a new opportunity to react differently than they did before.

Then again, those of us who died to everything and everyone often learn a whole lot while we're doing it. Highborn and Sorcerers beware, there is always 'the wild card'.
I'm just looking for a general consensus. Or Moe's opinion. Either one generally can be accepted as canon.

Several hundreds I'm sure, since 1996, what started in a small highschool computer lab, led by a dutch 'blue-eyed' teacher who shall remain nameless. hahaha I don't think any of our characters lasted much more than a day even if we were good at it back then.  Most of us died during the ongoing crashes that would leave our characters in game mid-combat and when it came back up hours later.. ohhhh yer dead? weird?  Better start all over again!    :o

I have had a few long lived chars as well, my longest was almost 3 RL years that I played daily.  I was an assassin, and I never killed anyone, but it was a great skill set for the character I portrayed.   Not all your characters have to use their coded skills to "win"

I've never been a Noble, Templar, Sorc, Psi, Nizaz, or Mul... so don't blame their assery on me :P  All those other times.. it was probably me, and I don't feel bad about it in the slightest.

I've had one drovian, two krathis, a buttload of merchants, vivs and ruks. I've played every mundane guild in the Byn, and have an idea of where their strengths in fighting fall at chargen. I keep going back to Kadius like a scorned lover. For the Byn I prefer burglars. They suck, but aren't the invalids that merchants are, and they can listen to your conversations and all that mess. I like my mercenaries to not kick butt that well but be able to hold a sword.

I've had one rogue, a c-elf vivaduan back in the days of main guild witches. I'm pretty sure word about her got around, but she lived in Storm so it really didn't matter. I was introduced to scorpion skellebain on that character. She was not an intelligent person. I hate rogues.

My numbers are not really indicative of the time I've spent playing. I'm like a 2008 or 2009 baby. Even before the magick subguilds came out I have always had a problem with storing characters whenever I wanted a different concept. I think the one that lasted the longest was a Kadian jeweler called Siko, an unmanifested ruk in Tuluk who visited Allanak a couple of times. I think the others sort of expected her to manifest. Nope. She lived for two RL months and then quit. She was a sociopath for whom a normal life was the highest thing a person could hope to have. Also mild-mannered. People got attached to her.

This thread makes me realize how many people must play this game, or am I unknowingly playing with the same people?  I dunno, but I don't know a lot of these characters.

I think lots of people use nicknames ingame. I know I do!

Edit: nevermind, Dar already said it. I didn't read to the end.  :-[

On my current account I have these: I'll add the nicknames, many of them were totally unmemorable.

1) Landra - Stored
  2) Tola - Dead - killed by people she was protecting, but I guess they never knew that, heh.
  3) Falmie - Dead
  4) Ditara - Dead
  5) Skarp - Dead
  6) Nikia - Dead
  7) Ellaray - Stored
  8) Kata - Stored
  9) Maneya - Stored (aka Chirp)
  10) Irminia (Kadius) - Stored (aka Minnie)
  11) Marthesala - Dead (aka Marta)
  12) Ziljoja - Dead (Joja)
  13) Hanley - Dead
  14) Metheyna - Stored
  15) Mistra - Dead
  16) Katresta - Dead (aka Claw, or Quirri's Claw)
  17) Litsana - Dead (aka Galmet - because for a gal, she resembled a bahamet)
  18) Pegarsha - Stored (because I misspelled her name, existed all of 90 seconds)
  19) Pargasha - Stored
  20) Carine - Dead
  21) Rhini - Dead
  22) Viggy - Stored

Mostly rangers, rukkians, merchants, and a few tries at whirans. One actually made it to near-mastery of the element. I don't think any of the others ever actually branched fly before they were PKed. All mages were pre-elemental nerf.

I love unmanifested people in Tuluk. Outside of Tuluk... well, its one of the few problems in the game. I miss Tuluk, if only for this.

I remember Gimpka and Sefaj. Gimpka was cray-cray.

I love unmanifested people in Tuluk. Outside of Tuluk... well, its one of the few problems in the game. I miss Tuluk, if only for this.

What I mean by this is that people will see you as a witch they can befriend, but they will need to do it quickly since you're obviously going to manifest right away or 2-3 days after chargen, right? Yeah, this leads to all sorts of behaviors which I don't see as worth playing the character, although I will still try occasionally to see if I can do it better. Its especially bad for me, since I almost always want to be unclanned.

I think I played a Kadian on my fourth, fifth or sixth character... I didn't understand what logging meant. We were in charge of cleaning the Kadian compound in Tuluk because it was right after the Flood. The rooms were described as being dirty and waterlogged. I still remember that.

Movers and shakers are so awesome. I'm envious of you sometimes, although you also need people like me who aren't going to be exceptions to the rule.

I've played a single human-looking breed. One. She didn't know it, either. Her parents had the tips of her ears cut off as a child. She was a raging racist. She died east of the Known; her last thought while being killed was "Mom!" She had been looking for her mom, who had turned to the evils of sorcery and left the Known to the east. Her body was probably very delicious to the creatures that killed it.

  30) Htom - Dead - No clue.
  31) Vannik - Stored  - Kuraci guy... Vannik-da I think.  Or maybe it was Veric.  One of these guys was a Kuraci.

  33) Veric - Dead - Probably a Kuraci guy.  Dunno.

  48) Rambleth - Stored - Joke character.  "the tall and muscular man" walked into the Gaj, sat on the ground, got some 'newbie treatment' from a few vets, mentioned he could smuggle, guild guy snapped him up for spice running and the guild guy literally emoted shitting his pants when Pocket whipped out some nilazi magick on him after being asked how he smuggled stuff.
  49) Senaj - Stored - Lord Senaj Zarquod Ozzixilloxis Fale, writer of The Bloodmetal Chronicles.  Hero of the Copper Wars.

Account created in Late 2001, Early 2002 (January I think). Though I think I was playing the game before I knew about the GDB, I forget.

Characters registered to you:
  1) Elegond - Dead - Died to a Beetle outside Red Storm
  2) Elegonde - Dead - Died to a Beetle outside Red Storm
  3) Reilor - Dead - Died to a Beetle outside Red Storm

Xavier died saving his companions, subduing them and throwing them to safety.

  24) Nanyevet - Dead - AKA Shirt, Haruch Kemad, ran the Eastside for a bit. Was murdered by Quick after not making good on promises from the beyond...Lots of great stuff happened with this PC, opened up my eyes to a whole different side of Zalanthas.

  57) Savold - Dead, Tuluki Spy. Worked for both Tenneshi and Winrothol, spying on both, getting paid by both. Ended up working for Kurac, known as 'Haffi' to them. Was hired by the Templarate to spy on Kurac, but ended up getting addicted to spice, which turned him into a spy for Kurac against Tuluk. Died to a spice overdose in the Tuluki compound of Kurac.
  58) Herzel - Dead, don't remember.
  59) Toumani - Stored, Bynner. Was fun.
  60) Hederai - Stored, ex-Negean Faithful Lord, around for the 'end days' of Tuluk and the New Order of the Templarate. Was a bunch of fun. Super sad he and Tuluk was stored.

If it makes you feel better, if Gavin WASN'T a dirty dirty Tuluki, he probably would've joined. He just had too much lust for returning "home".

That would be Marillo Winrothol.  I...... may have helped kill you a little bit as Klaygrott.  Good times!
Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.

Two months shy of my second anniversary:

1. Nyx - stored
2. Ceria - stored
3. Ailynn - PKed
4. Sasia- stored after just a week or two. I hated this PC.
5. Redacted - stored
6. Redacted - PKed
7. Redacted - alive

Oddly, my two PKed PCs were the two I had intended to keep the longest.

12. Zpider/Moss (dead) Breed/wannabe elf. Rinth rat (VIv) Displeased AoD. The death I regret the most, there was a lot of stories to be lived, but I guess the odds were that they would all end in the jail.
11. Bud (dead) Byn. Provoked a spider
10. Lili (dead) Dung bagger-Kuraci. Provoked a kryl.
9. Esmer (dead) ATV. Provoked a stump.
8. Kuri (stored) Brief existence while I waited for my d-elf
7. Bug/Stink/Toks (dead) Rinth rat. Provoked a pycho half giant
6. Seda (dead) Byn/Stormer. Ate a plant
5. Stik (dead) Recluse-Kuraci. Arena'd. Provoked the Highlord.

4. Gul (dead) Byn. Provoked a carru.
3. Moleyn (dead). Jul Taven.  Tembo'd
2. Haw (dead). Orchard grebber. Bumped into d-elf NPC's/
1 .Ctchori (dead). Blue eyed, half elf.  Noob. Quit room means Quit Room!

Started this time of year, in 2006, I think. Two year gap between young Gul, and old Gul. Both a liability.

Alright, so since we're doing lists here, I thought that I'd put down mine too. Just a few things to reference on, most of my characters I've ever played were rangers. Also, I died a ton of times because Armageddon was my first MUD I played in my life. The bolded characters are my memorable ones, just for reference.

EDIT: I started off with my first character in 2014 so... That meant a LOT of the later characters had to be censored out.

  1) Wolvine - Dead (Tried to argue about slaving in the middle of the Gaj. Dragged away by a PC soldier, then was beaten to death by a HG soldier after trying to fight back. Lame on my part.)
  2) Farrowlock - Dead (Did an idiot move back in the Tuluki days by trying to fight a slave crew.)
  3) Foctrus - Dead (Also known as Fucktris by the Byn. Abandoned at a caravan in the Salt Flats after a desperate OOC matter I had to get to, then was raptor'd.)
  4) Pelavius - Dead (Tok'd)
  5) Orilion - Dead (Bleed-out. I think it was from a beast fight.)
  6) Reveli - Dead (Rantarri'd)
  7) Harvashi - Dead (Gith'd)
  8) Tingeri - Dead (Kilori'd)
  9) Bilundur - Dead (Forget on how they died)
  10) Quinafell - Stored
  11) Kentroselope - Dead (Byn contract?)
  12) Alavo - Dead (See above, not too sure about this one's death)
  13) Ranava - Dead (Aka Hairdo. He was a member of the Byn, and was there during the moment with Lucky. He was kicked out after serving as a runner for two IC years w/o promotion, then he was killed by a snake out in the desert. I just loved him to death.)
  14) Nero - Dead (Beast?)
  15) Baine - Dead (Bahamet chow)
  16) Nurn - Stored
  17) Leverex - Dead (Aka Garent. Ended up to be yompar'd in Tuluk. Had a plethora of underground plots going on.)
  18) Terrax - Stored
  19) Frent - Stored
  20) Jinjaro - Dead (Tok'd)
  21) Kamon - Dead (My first d-elf, who was part of the SLK. Gith'd)
  22) Lan - Dead (HOLY SHIT, is there a lot to say about this Tuluki legend. However, most of his work he did is, by my knowledge, too confidential to speak about. PK'd)
  23) Vaxan - Dead (Raider. Found a bunch of dead Tuluki soldiers out by the plains gate and took their armor. Thought he could get away with all of it, but didn't.)
  24) Octren - Dead (Raptor'd)
  25) Yagras - Stored
  26) Tayn - Dead (Carru'd at empty move points)
  27-30) Enak, Krant, Axev and Gravass - Dead (Deaths unknown)
  31-33) Nox, Aethul and Yalm - Stored
  34) Argunbash - Dead (First HG. He was part of the Byn for a good while, and he named his maul Buddy. He also had a bromance with another HG which won't be named, due to existential issues.)
  35-60) Short lived/too recent to post about.

63) Sinjinn - Stored  - Akai Sjir Dealer, unofficial assistant of Faithful Qoriya, funder of mage deaths galore (I think he racked up over 35 'bought' gems), helped maneuver all the events around the death of the Red Fangs to make sure that the RF were totally and horrifically dead since they pissed him off once over shooting his girlfriend.  Made the opal hammer, made the arches in the cemetary, tons of statues.  Fun dude with a hobby of manipulating events around Raleris in order to keep the old Winrothol's life interesting.

People never seemed to understand why the Lirathans and Qoriya in particular had such a fond eye for Sinjinn and the Bejeweled Hand elves. What you wrote sums it up nicely. Very good times back then.
