Hello everyone! I was bored today so I wrote some random generators for population/level statistics for pathfinder.
Now we're together going to try them out and see if they foster creativity.
Essentially what happens is you put in a population number and the system spits out what people of what level/class are there!
To start lets decide what we're creating:
>Village (population 500)
>Town (population 5000)
>City (population 25000)
>Metropolis (population 500000)
Tomorrow I'm probably going to see if I can put into a webapp so other people can use it, and create sliders so you can make classes more/less common. At the moment there are set brackets of commonality the number generator works with.
First size to three votes wins!
Entire World (just go with like 5 Billion)
So that's 2 for world population (gonna do it as 1 billion), and 1 for city.
Warning, world population will be daunting because there are going to be a shit ton of low level indivudals, so we'll have to focus on the high level ones.
Also, to increase the randomness we're going to use a random map generator. Random generation go!
> there are going to be a shit ton of low level indivudals,
Well maybe this will teach you to use better generators/more controllable variables in your next generator
Ok everyone, we're going with WORLD POPULATION LEVEL. I'm going with 100,000,000 however because 5,000,000,000 is taking fucking forever to generate.
Lets look at the commoners, the most boring of distributions!
There are 42970743 level one commoners
There are 21502561 level two commoners
There are 10751060 level three commoners
There are 5374043 level four commoners
There are 2688867 level five commoners
There are 1343437 level six commoners
There are 671481 level seven commoners

There are 1269 level sixteen commoners
There are 655 level seventeen commoners
There are 342 level eighteen commoners
There are 137 level nineteen commoners
There are 89 level twenty commoners
Look at all those level 20 commoners. What does being a level 20 commoner even entail?
Lets see if I can do experts and warriors at the same time.
Also, for reference, commoners are ~85% of the population.
Experts and Warriors are each ~5%.
There are 2499370 level one experts
There are 1249552 level two experts

There are 1200 level twelve experts
There are 646 level thirteen experts
There are 288 level fourteen experts
There are 150 level fifteen experts
There are 79 level sixteen experts
There are 44 level seventeen experts
There are 28 level eighteen experts
There are 11 level nineteen experts
There are 5 level twenty experts
There are 2499005 level one warriors
There are 1250349 level two warriors

There are 600 level thirteen warriors
There are 303 level fourteen warriors
There are 139 level fifteen warriors
There are 69 level sixteen warriors
There are 30 level seventeen warriors
There are 24 level eighteen warriors
There are 6 level nineteen warriors
There are 4 level twenty warriors
Like I said, it literally only does classes at the moment. I slapped this together in like half an hour.
We actually has something unusual, for the population size we got 2 level 20 indivudals with PC classes (which you don't normally get).
Also, as I said, large populations get dumb because you just get bogged down by the fact there are millions at each level.
Now the last of the NPC classes. Adepts and Aristocrats, each making up 2% of the population.
There are 500598 level one aristocrats
There are 250308 level two aristocrats
There are 125210 level three aristocrats
There are 62570 level four aristocrats
There are 31044 level five aristocrats
There are 15680 level six aristocrats
There are 7859 level seven aristocrats
There are 3945 level eight aristocrats
There are 1950 level nine aristocrats
There are 988 level ten aristocrats
There are 492 level eleven aristocrats
There are 239 level twelve aristocrats
There are 112 level thirteen aristocrats
There are 68 level fourteen aristocrats
There are 28 level fifteen aristocrats
There are 18 level sixteen aristocrats
There are 8 level seventeen aristocrats
There are 3 level eighteen aristocrats
There are 1 level nineteen aristocrats
There are 0 level twenty aristocrats
There are 999808 level one adepts
There are 499510 level two adepts
There are 250013 level three adepts
There are 125497 level four adepts
There are 62570 level five adepts
There are 31491 level six adepts
There are 15359 level seven adepts
There are 7704 level eight adepts
There are 3981 level nine adepts
There are 1929 level ten adepts
There are 992 level eleven adepts
There are 460 level twelve adepts
There are 246 level thirteen adepts
There are 105 level fourteen adepts
There are 63 level fifteen adepts
There are 34 level sixteen adepts
There are 16 level seventeen adepts
There are 10 level eighteen adepts
There are 5 level nineteen adepts
There are 3 level twenty adepts
Those almost 1 million adepts. Again, world population makes it hard to... you know... make stories about people because there are so fucking many.
Now for some people on interest. We have 2 level 20 individuals in this world with PC levels.
A level 20 rogue and a level 20 sorcerer.
Attached is a PDF of all PCs.
Here we go. A few things of interest. Our highest level indivudals are 2 adepts, one of 6th level and one of 7th (not including commoners).
Our PCs include 4 barbarians and 1 fighter. No caster PCs at all.
These are the people of interest for the population of 500.
So like what's the point of this thing again, for the more autistic DMs out there that have to have a sheet for every fucking thing out in his setting whether or not the PCs even encounter them?
