WOW!

That's a lot of detail.

Thanks.

You don't mention the Builders or their church count, though. Members of the Inventors' Guild? Future work?

Honored to hear from you Grayman! Just finished the bank level for the first time a few days ago. Amazing work as always. 
Thanks for the input! did not think about the inventors guild would be interesting trying to come up with a number for them. I actually have a note for the Builders, its a little difficult due to them being all over the empire and not just Bridgeport. but for a sneak peak on what I have gathered is:

Acolytes/Monks: 5,311

Soldiers: 1,694

Priests: 107

Bishops: 15

Holy locations (churches/shrines/abbeys/Cathedrals) (need to clean this category for finished project) 605

I don't know If i will list named churches and locations. But I have a long list of all Builder locations named so far. Including Braeden Church, with the footnote it is no longer active.

I also am thinking of making a roll of arms (a list of all nobles given thus far in the dark mod) positioned on a rating of power and greatness. 

Also going to need to find a way or a thread dedicated to naming the Gaulic and Germanic Clans. As of right now between all the Pagan tribes, I am figuring that there is about 2,511,473 (based off of Roman numbers, I may shrink them due to further study) of them spread out over the vast lands of the north. Something like 42 different tribes.

Fascinating topic! Seems like you have a real passion for demographics! This idea never really occurred to me, though I will say I've long wanted to have a map of Bridgeport showing the location of all the different wards and boroughs (I'm a bit of a map nerd).

I'm glad to see my "part of town", Brooksdale and Clifton Grove represented in your statistics. Though I think you overestimate the population by two orders of magnitude ^^. The skybox of the city around it are really meant to be other districts/wards some of which are as yet unnamed. I do wonder how you chose which names to include. I would say Langmiller's Ward from the Crucible of Omens mission should be in there, and I'm sure there are others named in other missions as well. Also isn't the Old Quarter and Stone Market from the Thief universe? That said, it's a really interesting population census that you've put together!

Thank you Bienie! Honored for your attention! I really loved your recent stuff! COS 2 was amazing work! 
Loved the rat hunting, always thought that would be a fun thing to do as a goal. 

Sorry, just had all these homes left over at the end and started putting them into wards that were left according to the quality of the homes. Thought that both Brooksdale and Cliften Grove were places that could be supporting communities. 

Aw, taff! I totally skipped over Langmillers ward somehow. Feel bad about that because Crucible of Omens is an amazing level. It seemed pretty big in the time you were outside, you think it would be fair if I took about 2/3 from Brooksdale/Clifton and shifted them into Langmillers?

If I missed any others I would not mind if someone will let me know. I was mostly intent on gathering names that represented large parts of town, there were mods where I thought about using a name given, but most of the times the name would only apply to a street or a square with a dozen or so shops around it. 


Both Stone market and Old quarter are from thief. I had that thought when seeing the names pop up in the mods I played. 

 

As for the world map,I feel it would be easier to achieve that goal once I have a solid foundation of Bridgeport and surrounding county. Got a screencap of the maps that have shown up in all levels, I plan to trace over it and make a blank template, maybe post it in that thread about the world with a list of all the names that appear on it. 

Thank you again for both the post, but mostly the levels you have made.

This is just the human population, what about the Beastfolk population, or those citizens who have been raised from the dead by Necromancy? Even discounting zombies as mindless monsters, there also seems to be a fair amount of still somewhat self-aware ghosts, haunts, Necromancer liches, etc.

Just human, I did include an estimation of undead in the Plague ward. Its in the displaced category in purple. Not sure how many beast folk there are. Maybe less then 10,000 due to the secluded and shadowed lives they live. If my memory is correct I think there has only been one mod with beastmen as of yet. I could be wrong though. 
Not sure on the number of ghosts, that may be a replay through of all the mods just to get a head count on ghosts, spirits and potential specters in bridgeport. That information would only really matter to builders, so I will include that note with the builder stats.

Thanks for the input.

Those are kind words indeed! I'm glad you liked the ratter challenge too haha. By the sound of it you will get a real kick out of CoS 3 that will be released in the spring.

The way I imagine it Clifton Grove is a fairly small, independently minded borough where people are a bit suspicious of outsiders due to the relative poverty surrounding them. I was thinking the population would be in the low thousands. Almost the entirety of Clifton is accessible in Pearls & Swine, maybe 85%. Brooksdale on the other hand is much larger and more cramped. CoS 2 only let's you explore I would say the northern 1/3 of it (the least ghetto part). So I would probably say the population here is well above 10k maybe even over 20k.  I would say that moving two thirds of your current estimate over to Langmiller's ward would be fair. That district has much taller buildings and and has a larger footprint. I might add that my other map, The Night of Reluctant Benefaction, takes place in East Farley Acres which is probably about the same size as Clifton when you combine it with West Farley Acres that has not been made yet, this area is east of Brooksdale which is hinted in a readable. In CoS 2 I also hint at a borough named Woodpine Cross which is north of Clifton and northwest of Brooksdale. I'm planning on setting a mission here after CoS 3, with it being probably in between the two in terms of size and class.

I can't think of any other named districts off the top of my head, though I suspect both Melan and Sotha, and maybe Goldwell have done so in some of their missions.

Good luck in your continued studies of the demographics of Bridgeport!

Thanks Bieni! Look forward to future installments. Thanks for your input and information, very helpful to me. 
I will correct the charts when I get a fat moment. Work week has started.

 

Enjoy your week!
