I work in IT and keep a website for my DND group, so I got to thinking the other day about what the statistics are of all the characters our 24ish players have made and used in 4e so far... this includes throw away campaigns as well as long lived story arcs. Well I tabulated them up (with some errors) and figured you guys may be interested in some of the breakdowns we've seen in our group. I'll offer a minor explination at the end.

Note: Due to incomplete data the totals for each table wont always match.

Classes

Cleric 29
Rogue 23
Paladin 21
Barbarian 21
Ranger 20
Wizard 17

Sorc* 14
Invoker 11
Avenger 10
Swordmage 10
Druid 9
Artificer 8

Shaman 3
Seeker 3
Battlemind 2
Ardent 0



Power Source
Martial 93
Divine 78
Arcane 71

Role

Goblin 0
Hobgoblin 0
Mul 0
Thri-kreen 0


---------------
No single person has made more than 26 of the 430 characters I have recorded, a few only made 1 or 2, average character per person is 10.7

As you can see we've done a few Human Only campaigns and PHB1 classes got a lot of love. I generally play Divine, another guy generally plays Primal, and another 2 generally pick up Arcane. Beyond that we dont have much in the way of consistency between the classes people want to pick outside of Roles. As you can tell most of our people dont like controllers much...

the Roles are determined based a combination of class and playstyle. With the Ardent Paladin and some Genasi Wizard builds you can easily hit a striker level damage output and playstyle while ignoring much of the initial role. This is even more notable with the Essentials products and the slayer being a Fighter build, but Striker role - as such the tables attempt to reflect that.

for the Paragon campaigns we've had, Dreadnought, Sorceror, Clockwork Engineer, Frenzied Berserker, Master of the Forge, Radiant Servant, Shadowblade, Warpriest top the list at 6, 5 and 4,4,4,4,4,4 instances respectively out of 115 occurances

For Epic - of the 74 characters in epic or planned through epic- 10 are Demigod/Chosen, 5 Exalted Angel.


Any other stats that anyone would be interested in or would anyone want to tabulate your own? :)

EDIT: updated to reflect 6/16/2010 data

ya my group does not like controllers much the dps does not like seeing the low nubers I think. there is also the fact the gm like to make most encounters like +2 levels higher then he sould so most fighs end up with us almost dead(no almost last week. one of the players dead).

I was planing on posting my Cleric tonight. I may have gone overkill or maybe just the right amount of kill.

the one that was dead was the healer.. that did not help.

everone but the tank was on the ground at one point.
I play a human so I rolled to get up two time in that fight.
was not sure that the tank was going to make it.

all of our dallys where used in this fight.. and it was not a boss fight or anything. im told there are more fights like this. pry did not help we where down a player.

4 players for failed death saves just this fight
1 warden never went down
1 bard 3 failed death save(fail my heal ck to save his in the end by one)(all in a row)(funny I was down.. got up run over to him failed a heal ck by one point.. I knew if I was going to do that ck I was going back down the next round and I did.)
1 human wild mage(ok sor. me) no fails. got up 2 times(in a row)(gm knock me down.I look at him and said I will be back up next round and I did. did that again.)

1 human rog. 2 failed death saves (got up one time)

tactics on the part of the warden would have help(still think we all would have been down just a bit slower). left me and the bard all by our selfs. so there is that.

we are level 6.
we where fighting.(this is a normal encounter)
2 Shadar-kai chainfighter.
1 shadar-kai gloomblade.(may have been two to start I think).
1 shadar-kai witch.

2 Fire beetle swarms or somthing.

(looking at this it may not have been to bad had all 5 of us been there.. and we had not have sucked on tactics.(everyone but me that is. I was the last to go down. even after being left alone). just not 100% he did not tone down this fight becuse there was only 4 of us.

Oh, that reminds me another statistic

Player Character Deaths - 12

this is an estimation, but I'm pretty sure its accurate - this includes died but ressed as well as died and died

Our Live V Death ratio is a bit .. abnormal. Partially due to Dms pulling punches due to player complaints (and immaturity imho) and a core of about 4-5 of them as strong players who are quick at reacting when needed.

of course the dice are always a funny option too. I almost knocked out a player a week or two ago, but i missed it by 2hp heh.


Complete list of destinies chosen so far:

Admantine Warrior
Beastlord
Chosen of Chantia
Chosen of Chantia
Chosen of the Raven Queen
Demigod
Demigod
Demigod
Demigod
Eternal Seeker
Legendary General
Perfect Assassin

We're likely to add the following

Saint
Stormlord
Avatar of Life
Avatar of Death
Chosen of a homebrew Deity
Not sure what everyone else is going to pick up... the DM is requiring RP reasons to take the epicdestiny, so my anti-undead Paladin who's had a rough time with Dominate is going to make a good fit for Saint. the Avatar of Life and Avatar of Death are going to be interesting combination...
