The Humanoids of the Broken Lands post Gaz-10by micky
Not sure if anyone has wondered what happened to all the humanoids of the Broken Lands after the events of the WotI and the following years disrupted completely what had been a haven for the various Humanoid lands. In the course of trying to figure out what exactly constituted Kol's forces and what was available to him, I ran into trying to piece together who stayed and who left. Here is what I came up with via the almanac and other sources. Plus for my amusement... pure number crunching for exactly how many of these critters are we looking at. Not sure if anyone can use this... but posting this here for the hell of it in case someone can make use of it.
from GAZ 10..
Bugburbia - 2156 square miles of territory in the Broken Lands, 2820 HD of humanoids.
Did some extensive googling (which covers the .html almanac entries) and all signs point to the Bugbears of Ohr'r become a part of New Kolland. Now.. just how many Bugbears are there. To make it simple. for the Bugbears.. and all the rest of the humanoids. Gaz 10 gives numbers as of AC1000. I am going to wash all the population growth, of which Humanoids could make Rabbits blush I'm told, against losses during the Great War and/or fighting against Glantri and the HK.
