I am wondering if anyone has put thought in to how many chaos seeds out there will survive long enough to be anything. Given we know that humans from all aspects of ability are dropped in randomly into the land at level 1. They don't speak languages of the people. The vast majority have no combat skills, or other transferable skills. How many die on arrival? These are of course approximations, but an interesting thought exercise. 1,000,000,000 people were sucked into the land, randomly placed. 70 percent of the land is entirely inhospitable, due to oceans, high mountain tundras, middle or rivers, caverns, etc. (70 percent of Earth is water, we don't have a map of the land but ill carry the stat) 300,000,000 people live through the first day. Most people have no skills applicable to the land. People with medical experience like Ritcher are exceptions, and still only limited in usefulness, as for example a surgeon still may not have much practical knowledge to stop a wolf bite from becoming infected without medicine. This even goes for survivalists: someone familiar with hunting and gathering on earth may rely on tools like knives, lighters, guns, compound bows, a familiarity of the bugs and plants and animals in the area. Without the advantages, many of the small cross section of people that are able to take from the earth's natural environment will struggle in the land. Have you ever heard of the show Alone, about amateur survivalists who see who can live the longest alone in an earth environment? These people don't even do well on earth when they have to rely completely on themselves! How about the regular Joe who goes on a hike once a month and has never killed more than a mosquito? The only way these people to survive is to find civilization. But no one can communicate, no one has money or any other tradable good. I will be generous and say that two thirds of the remaining people in the land do not survive the first month. 100,000,000 people make it to civilization and have a chance. There are specialized skills people could use, like for example an engineer could make some fancy machinery, but to do so they need significant stability and resources to make use of their skills. A lawyer or restaurant manager or car mechanic are useless. The people who have skills in carpentry, marketing, working with animals, these people may be able to use their past lives to help establish themselves. Everyone else have no family, support network, skills, wealth, anything, to help them. They are essentially refugees in a world in which someone directly, tangibly benefits from killing them. Most of these people will be hard pressed to feed themselves, to stay sane and not commit suicide, let alone level up and gain power. Perhaps it does Ritcher some good to find some of these beggar chaos seeds and help them. But really they are just like all the other NPCs: not a threat, not anything unique in the land. 5,000,000 grow to level five or higher. This leaves only a few million people in the world. These people are probably powerful. If they can survive the beginning and are able to establish themselves, not only do they likely have strong abilities which continue to give them an advantage, a mindset and will to grow and survive, but also they have auras which make things happen. From the brief POV in the courts we know the chaos seeds are unsettling even powerful established empires. They are few, and they are killing themselves and making fatal mistakes, but those who survive on this jupiter sized planet are the ones Ritcher must think about. 2,000,000 become powerful and don't make deadly mistakes. jupiter is 24 billion square miles. This means there is one of these savant chaos seeds every 12000 square miles, about the size of Maryland. For a medieval society, this is a large distance between people. Ritcher may find a few, but not dozens.
