PostSubject: Fun Facts about Pendor in Aftermath   Wed Oct 31, 2012 1:21 pm

One of the players recently asked me what the population of a hex was, and I know the issue of the population numbers of various cities has come up over time, so I have decided to make a very (very!) rough population model. Note; this really is extremely crude, and does not take into account under-populated areas like the Steppe, but rather as though everything had as many people as the land value and settlement size warrented.

This model was made using the Levy numbers, whereby 10% of the working male population is pressed into the army, which comes to 3.2% of the hex population.

In the hex calculations, settlements are neutral, terrain type is favoured, and economic impactis reduced (wealthier regions do not necessarily have more people, they are just more efficient).

So, here are the stats!

Largest City : Sarleon; 21,086 citizens.
Second Largest City : Ethos; 17,962 citizens
Third Largest City : Singal; 16,920 citizens
Smallest City : Poinsbruk; 9,177 citizens, Windholm 9,177 citizens
Most Populous County : Mobray County (30); 67,166 denizens
Second Most Populous County : County of Ravenstern (19); 63,521
Third Most Populous County : County of Ethos (47); 60,918
Least Populous County : White Peak Mountains (17), Windbreak Mountains (34); 16,141 denizens each
Highest Population Density (living in towns and villages) : High Pass Mountains (16); urban dwellers outnumbered 1.66-1
Lowest Populations Density (living rurally) : Mystveil Woods (10); urban dwellers outnumbered 8-1
Total Population of Pendor : 2,364,347 (which is roughly the same as England in a similar time period; 1400's)

Addendum; Lowest Population Density not counting Elacrai.

Updated to split towns and castles for the top 3 town populations. It's interesting to see that generally Pendor's towns are larger than those in England, except that Sarleon is quite a bit smaller than London was at the time.

Just worked out the number of troops each Noble would be able to raise if they called their banners, here are the top 5;

Kyros, Duke of Cez
Aelfwine, Duke of Marleons
Stephen, Duke of Laria
Darlion, Duke of Sarleon
Cassian, Duke of Janos

This takes Marcher status, and whether they obey the Law of Halves into account.

I also worked out that if the King went to war, he could raise a whopping 22,900. If the King ignored his own Law of Halves, it would be far more.

If the Law of Halves is ignored, does Marcher Status mean anything?

Yup, a further 50% in their force size.
