    Added a couple minor details to Jeffry's profile, mostly bits about his fighting style and superfluous music.

    I also felt compelled to post what part of Eden he's from, since sectors seem to be a point of interest; he's from Sector 9, playing punk rock with the Prauns when he's trying his damndest to help his mother keep the house.

    Don't tempt me boy, or I'll be throwing them in with the... ahem.... battle armor.

    At this point, I want to see how long we can go until someone states the obvious.

    Can someone find my profile for Vivian Baad?
    Search function and me don't get along...

    Hm...

    Thoughts on Eden's population and history.

    Eden's population is, currently, 50,000,000.

    Eden's population will presumably have doubled at different periods, so at different points in its history, it will have had the following population sizes:

    50,000,000
    25,000,000
    12,500,000
    6,250,000
    3,125,000
    1,562,500
    781,250
    390,625
    195,313
    97,656
    48,828
    24,414
    12,207
    6,104
    3,052
    1,526
    763
    381
    191
    95
    48
    24

    I stop at 25, as that seems like the absolute smallest population that Eden could have had at the beginning, basically the twelve and a spouse for each. This is, of course, ridiculous and would require magic or supertechto have survived. I will go with the 1526 population, though I could see it going two steps in either direction and still making sense.

    So, that means that Eden's population had doubled 15 times in the last thousand years. Or, 13 to 17 times.

    Assuming Eden grows in a normal and fairly steady fashion, that means Eden's population has grown at about 1% per year (1.045% according to some work I did on a population calculator).

    Hm...

    Not impossible, but kind of odd to me. Seems to imply either that it is hard to have large families in Eden, Eden is dealing with some nasty form of population predation, there are very strange attempts at population control, Eden has dealt with serious disasters since it was founded, or it has gone through periods of population decay like some developed world countries have. None of those appear to fit the back story well.

    Hm, countries with that kind of growth
    Azerbaijan 1.017% (2012 est.)
    Burma 1.07% (2012 est
    French Polynesia 1.021% (2012 est.)
    Indonesia 1.04% (2012 est.)
    Mexico 1.086% (2012 est.)
    Morocco 1.054% (2012 est.)
    Nicaragua 1.067% (2012 est.)
    Peru 1.016% (2012 est.)
    Vietnam 1.054% (2012 est.)
    World 1.096%

    Of course, assuming a truly steady growth rate over the last thousand years is ridiculous.

    It is interesting that the closest country to Eden in population growth rate is Indonesia, one of the most diverse in the world, and is nearly five times the size of Eden.

    Interestingly, Eden's wealth does point to an explanation here. It easily could have reached a level like this before, gone into a long period of stagnation like some current developed countries, and eventually the people with cultural or habitual reasons for larger families outbred the people with stagnant or shrinking populations, leading to the current period of expansion. That is assuming a lack of any previous devastating wars or natural disasters, though as a note they would probably have had to either kill off the majority of Edenists, made it harder for the Edenists to reproduce, or been long term problems in order for it to really effect population growth.

    Given the incredible age of this city, almost anything could have happened centuries ago, and nearly everything probably has.

    Were my NPC analyses useful to you?

    If I totally guessed the plot then I am sorry for ruining the surprise.

    So, do we have an ETA for this game? I'd like to try to be around and prepared when it starts.
