So this should help the readers keep track of who is still around as well as giving me another easy reference point.

For special reader bonus points (redeemable for absolutely nothing) can you guess which one of these characters was originally intended to be a throw away character that was going to wash out of the program in the first couple weeks?

  1. Hey, just something that has been bothering me for a bit with this, I’m enjoying the story, but if you were ever doing an editing pass, you should really gone down the heights, I’m not sure if you don’t know general average heights or if it was an intentional choice to populate the story with most everyone being extremely tall. I don’t think it particularly adds anything to the story to have everyone so tall unless it has a point in their character, which it generally does not.

    Here, take a look at these statistics, and compare the heights in your story.
    “What percent of Americans are over 6 feet tall? ”

    “At least 3.9 percent as they are those eligible for the Tall Club which make up a minuscule percentage of the U.S. population. Just 0.7 percent of U.S. women are 5-foot-10 or taller, and just 3.9 percent of men are 6-foot-2 or taller. The average heights for American men and women are 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-3.7 respectively, according to statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”


    • With a few exceptions the characters’ heights (and almost all the names as well) were randomly generated. I don’t think I’m going to go back and edit the characters to be more physically average at this point, they’ve been around in my head for so long that it would be weird to change them like that.

      Interesting statistics though, as apparently both me and Drew (the author of this setting) fall in with only 3.9% of men. Nifty! ^_^


  2. I’m a little torn on this since people are still guessing, but on the other hand this chapter first went up well over a year ago (back on a site that no longer exists at that!) and over a dozen guesses across different sites haven’t guessed right yet.
