    What is in this thread?
    All 'active' characters, grouped by race and affliction (aberrant condition).

    What makes a character 'active'?
    They must have an approved application.
    They must have been played within the last 2 weeks, with 1-5 days leeway granted to known cases.
    There are 1900 approved character applications. After everything, alt removal as well, this was reduced to 463, which is a loss of 39 people compared to Survey 2, but an increase of 28 compared to Survey 1.

    What makes an 'alt' for reduction?
    People are limited to 2 characters per person, with few exceptions.
    The first among these is guaranteed to be the one they last logged on as. The other is their most recent application, if abstractly 'deemed prominent' or 'seen in conversation' in RPcom and their forum posts.

    How did you gather this information?
    I used the subforum filter to reduce Character Applications to Approved Applications.
    From there, I manually cross-verified each username with /seen to cross out inactives.
    Some slight margin of error is to be expected, but nothing excessive.
    I also interfaced with some community leaders as to if I missed some major lieutenants of theirs.

    Here are the ever desired Ailor Cultures.
    [​IMG]
    -> Q: Oka, why the are there so many damn Ithanians and why do I never see them?
    -> A: Lots of half Ithanians with French names. For the purpose of this review, that makes them Ithanian.

    Here are the Vampire Bloodline subdivisions.
    [​IMG]
    -> Q: ... Dorkarth? All of a sudden?
    -> A: New Dorkarth coven is employing the novel_technique™ of making its members Dorkarth. Statistics ensues. Of course the Alais outnumber them, but the Alais will always outnumber everyone, so we already done known that sis.


    Here are the Werebeast Soul-line subdivisions.
    [​IMG]
    -> Q: Well Oka, I play a Scorrico/Talanark/xyz, and you missed me.
    -> A: Probably because your soul-line was within the statistical margin of error, meaning I am not too scuffed about it. It is very strange for me not to see any representation from some soul-line though, so if you play one AND they satisfy all criteria set forth at the top of this thread (played within 2 weeks, top 2 active chars), step into my DMs and tell me.


    Here are the Mage dimension subdivisions.

    Here are the Draconic power subdivisions.

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    If your culture/race/etc is not on here, that's because it's too small to get a title on the chart.
    Of course there are inaccuracies. I'm one person. But it should be in the end below 5-10% inaccuracy.
    The red sliver on Aberrancy is Silven. The tiny almost imperceptible one is Brood.

    Why do I care about this?
    Because it's interesting, and it shows the trajectory of rise and fall.

    In closing:
    Feel free to discuss any meaning you may derive from this post in the thread, or contact me in DMs for a conversation.

    Question! For some characters that covered two different types of things in one chart, were they included in both? (For example, my Haeksen is a Ritualist and a Sorcerer)

    I’m just curious is all, nothing serious. This is an awesome thread!

    I am here to remind people that a Slizzar may not be counted as active if they’re solely played in one of their shifts and the shift isn’t known as a Slizzar.
    With that being said, the Slizzar population is actually probably larger than the chart says.
    watch ur backs

    Nice advertisements.

    @AtticCat

    Higher Aberrancies take precedent. Unfortunately this means there is a lot of Aberrancy over-writing where there are less Ritualists because they get overwritten by Sorcerers.

    @AWildRhia

    You are mostly wrong. I did make sure to check for snekiness. Maybe a few apps? But nothing more than that.

    ~!~ Genevaud Community ~!~

    Fancy fine cheese and sweet chocolates? Merry cultural activities like dancing, alphorn playing, and yodeling? Fighting side by side with your Lancyon brother, pike in hand? The Genevaud Community be where it's at. From the high Alps carefully ever-watching their neighbors, the Genevaud are a proud but long secluded people full of unique wonder and known for their recently created close bonds with the Unionist Sancella.

    That's right! We exist. https://wiki.massivecraft.com/Genevaud


    Like the idea of making a Genevaud character but not sure of how to get involved? No problem at all! The Genevaud actually have a series of different organizations mostly sponsored/led by the Genevaud Noble Family, House Kreiburg.

    Ongoing fun to pitch yourself in with!

    https://forums.massivecraft.com/threads/the-kreiburg-court.85053/ - The Kreiburg Court is accepting servants to the Genevaud Noble Family as well as advisors, military staff, and even has a few higher Court Positions vacant at the moment. Act fast.
    https://forums.massivecraft.com/threads/the-kreiguard-house-guard.85008/ - The Kreiguard is the Kreiburg Family's House Guard which is sworn to their service and to protect them at all costs. The Kreiguard is an incredibly active House Guard Chapter which officers host daily trainings and rallies, giving plenty of opportunity to guard the nobility as they go about their ordinary business.
    https://forums.massivecraft.com/threads/the-wunderbar.83357/ - The Wunderbar is a tavern ran by House Kreiburg which offers daily activity and rp experience with barkeepers being hired right now! There's also a place for more musical-oriented characters on the Wunderbar's humble stage.​

    For future reference, and for anyone else who would like to comment after this post, please have the common decency of asking permission from the original-poster before you decide to advertise your own sub-communities on their work.

    It is incredibly rude to hijack a thread with your own content.

    I'm excited to see more Highlanders and Cielothar than I expected! The Cielos make sense given their recent juicy update, but it was surprising to see such a large chunk of Highlanders too. Maybe they'll soon be on the rise after this week?
    Either way, I'll keep an eye out and look forward to finding new friends for my characters!

    Considering how many Cielonthar are skinwalkers I would not be too happy

    I mean, fair, but also I've met a few new regular Cielos recently, so that's cool. And there may be others that I just don't know are Cielothar yet.

    @SevenBirds

    The Highland Ceardian population is magnified by House Howlester, who are bigger than any other family I have ever seen. Billy runs a good ship. Also, 35% of Cielothar are Skinwalkers, which is 65% that aren't. In a similar sense, 26.5% of Altalar are Vampires and 23.5% have Draconic affiliation (and 8.8% are Werebeasts), because a ton of people like playing Altalar Archbloods, and Cephaelia also goes under Draconic. So I would say that losing 35% of your community from the mainstream is fine given that I am consistently losing 50+%. Cielothar are doing alright.

    @rimacutem

    Dwarf population is consistent and self-sustaining, but many were on the edge of the activity check, lingering around 2 weeks. Not sure what's up with that. Community taking a break?

    Oh yeah, I knew that a lot of the Highlanders were Howlester, but I mean that it seems there's an increase in non-Howlesters, which is cool. And not all of the Howlesters are Highland - there are a couple other cultures scattered in there too, whether through marriage, adoption, or whatnot. But I did meet a Highlander yesterday that I'd not seen around before, so that's great! I'm hoping to see more commoner Highlanders around as well, that would be a lot of fun. But it's hard to figure that out just from the numbers given.

    Pardon me, but... I think you've misunderstood me. I'm not at all complaining about 'losing' community in the Cielothars, I'm excited about the prospect of gaining new players. True, as a regular Cielo, my character is unlikely to be making connections with Skinwalkers, but it's still cool that people are making and playing them. And, as stated, I've been very pleased to meet a couple new Cielothar characters recently. I'm excited to see where it goes!
    I'm sorry that you're losing part of your community, but, with respect, I don't see how that's relevant to what I was saying. It's not really a 'whose community is better/worse' thing to begin with, and I never said anything about 'losing' Cielos to Skinwalkers being a bad thing. It's not my cuppa and doesn't really benefit me ICly, but it still adds to roleplay and the community in general.

    @SevenBirds

    Oh, no no. 'Losing from the mainstream' isn't 'being unable to interact with', it's my way of saying that they deviate from the 'mundane norm' and have some special aspect to them. This only becomes an issue when there are more of a special type of subculture than there are individuals of the main culture, like when most Cielothar were skinwalkers, indicating a lack of attractiveness for Cielothar at the time. It's all very neat and the Cielothar update has me excited!

    Ahh, I understand! My apologies, I misunderstood your post as being salty at me for some reason and I was confused and slightly miffed. Sorry if I came across as rude myself, that wasn't my intention. Anyway, no hard feelings. (:

    @OkaDoka how did you count the mundane number? Based off no abilities or even if they had Ritualism or such?

    @SevenBirds Nah, not at all. You're alright, dw, it's just 4 AM and I'm running on fumes.

    @CRASHIR Ritualists are their own category, as you see, so Mundanes are people with strictly only Racial abilities that do not include Sorcery. I will add to that end though that I counted Union Blessings Archan as Sorcerers, and also that higher Aberrancies override lower Aberrancies for the listing, so there are more Ritualists than displayed just because a Sorcerer Ritualist is listed as a Sorcerer and a Vampire Ritualist is listed as a Vampire.
