    Greetings to the players of Siege Perilous.

    This Fall I did two versions of a Census.

    First: from November 1 to December 16 I kept a record of players names and identity numbers in General chat.

    I collected 201 names and number tags.

    Second: I collected the count of houses to areas I could visit.
    Some of the houses in the SE islands were not counted because of the limit one ship deployed.
    The count of houses was 821 units.

    It should be noted that most of the players in the General chat census count had houses in the second collection.

    Gen Chat also doesnt count as lots of people drop in for trades only.

    Still, even with the folks that have just hopped on to do a trade, that's not bad - for Siege. And yes, I know that there are players that find general chat annoying and keep it turned off. That probably offsets the ones who might be over for a trade.

    As for the houses, remember that quite a few of us who play Siege have multiple accounts and, therefore, multiple houses. So you might only see one name, but if all of that player's characters were logged in you would see more. I, for one, have 5 houses on Siege. I think Razz has 80% of the rest. . . . ;)

    My five houses on Siege should all go poof sometime in February. I guess the IDOCs will provide some brief entertainment for a few folks while they scramble for my pitiful collection of belongings.
