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. -> 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. -> 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. -> 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. Timestamped to 02:30-11:52 August 9 JST.
