    "Banjo's Love Interest" should link to #887, not #888.

    Unless I'm mistaken, we're missing alterations for Belkar and Miko as blood painting.

    EDIT: Also Elan, Nale, Sabine and Thog as blueprint painting. Which is really odd, since I'm noticing these just because they are given as examples in the FAQ. They should be in there somewhere, but I can't seem to find them.

    Quick questions: shouldn't "Redcloak's illusion with wrong eye" listed 3 times (strips 885, 886, 887)?
    in 885 only "Redcloak (with one eye)" got credited, but if it was the normal Redcloak with eye-patch, we should see some piece of the eye-patch-band there. (Because the side with the missing eye is lower, e.g. in 827)
    From the following strips, I think it should be clear that it is the same in all three strips.

    Those are unnamed characters with only one appearance, so they don't count.

    No, they are members of the Twelve Gods - the names of their species are their actual names. And they've all appeared before.

    Are we listing Belkar (scarred by Malack) as an interesting alteration? He's been like this for quite a few strips now...

    Those are just wounds. We can't count those, since everyone that gets into a fight gets them; it's Rich's way of showing HP. Yes, Belkar still has them because the team no longer has a reliable healer. But we can't start adding "Roy (with one scratch)", "Roy (with two scratches)", etc. ad nauseam.

    We've never listed injuries as alterations before, unless entire body parts are lost. O-chul does not have an alteration slot for "more scars than one".

    EDIT: Two hours of no replies and then I get ninja'd? How?

    There's probably a case for saying that vampire bites are not in the same category as run-of-the-mill HP damage, but personally I'm neutral on the issue.

    They should all get an additional "notable alteration" for being in a triple fantasy, as noted in the strip.
    .....No, I don't actually think that, but apparently I fooled you enough for you to highlight or quote...
    So, what are the odds that Roy will ever be passed for most appearances?

    I hope this hasn't already been complied, but based on your information I made a formal measure of gender distribution in OOTS based on character appearances (in the main comic, not counting extras):

    Male (2885-68%)
    Protagonists (1630)
    Major Characters (595)
    Frequent Characters (256)
    Minor and Infrequent Characters (404)
    Female (785-18%)
    Protagonists (431)
    Major Characters (143)
    Frequent Characters (39)
    Minor and Infrequent Characters (172)
    Unknown (594-14%)
    Protagonists (349)
    Major Characters (74)
    Frequent Characters (52)
    Minor and Infrequent Characters (119)
    Total (4264)
    Note: Banjo isnít counted in any of these totals.

    I wasn't really expecting such lopsided results, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. I don't want Rich to butcher the story to even it out. Although having V identify as a female would change the data like so:

    Male (2885-68%)
    Female (1134-26%)
    Unknown (245-6%)

    So that'd be pretty cool! Not collected with any intent in critiquing gender in OOTS though. OOTS is pretty solid on that front from what I can tell. Just trying to generate more trivia.

    Next, you should try compiling heterosexual characters, homosexual characters, and unknown. The results are even more disturbing

    Darn it, some one already compiled all of that data and analyzed it already. Better than I did, I might add. :P

    Including the deaths was pretty smart to do too. I'm kind of sad that every time a woman in the comic gains some sort of importance, she disappears. Tsukiko, Therkla and Miko were Killed Off For Real, Celia was Put on A Bus and Hilgya is suffering from Chuck Cunningham Syndrome. Which leaves us with Haley, Sabine, Lien, Kazmui, Niu and Julia. So as far as humanoid female characters with more than ten appearances to their credit go, almost half of them are effectively removed from the story.
