This has cropped up a few times, and I myself started a thread about this sometime last week about the apparent disparity between the number of corpses lying about and the number of homes we see in and about Tristram.
But seriously, how many dead villagers are there really? What idiot would take the time to actually count them? Well, you need look no further to find your idiot; I am that idiot.
Your mileage may vary, but I came up with a total of 354
For the record, I counted them by zone, and I only counted dead villagers that I could search, or villagers that were about to die (such as the dying villagers in the Slaughtered Calf Inn or the Cellar of the Damned). I didn’t bother counting corpses lying about for decoration.
If you’re wondering about the breakout (and even if you’re not):
Adira’s Hut: 5
Old Tristram Road: 7
Cathedral Level 1: 26
Cellar of the Damned: 15
Slaughtered Calf Inn: 7

Weeing Hollow: 13
Cemetery of the Forsaken: 1
Cathedral Level 2: 29
Cathedral Level 3: 15
Cathedral Level 4: 19
Royal Crypt: 7
Fields of Misery: 18
Scavenger s Den Level 1: 17
Scavengers Den Level 2: 9
Wortham Village/Cliffs: 18
Highland Crag: 3
Southern Highlands: 9
Watchtower Level 1: 22
Watchtower Level 2: 9
Cave of the Moon Clan Level 1: 18
Cave of the Moon Clan Level 2: 12
Northern Highlands: 11
Leorics Hunting Ground: 8
Leorics Manor Courtyard: 9
Leorics Manor: 4
Halls of Agony Level 1: 9
Halls of Agony Level 2: 17
Halls of Agony Level 3: 10
Highland Passage: 2
Yes, I do have too much time on my hands as a matter of fact.
I don't know if we need more players like me, I play Hardcore and can't get out of Act II without dying. :)
Granted, I don't only equip what drops and refuse to use the Auction House, but still ...
But the fact that there are about two dozen houses in Act I, and well over 300 bodies lying about has always kind of bothered me. So I decided to try to figure out just how many dead villagers there are. Turns out you'd need to have each "family" have about 14.1 people just to account for all the dead villagers. That's not counting the live ones we see in town, thats only the dead ones.
I think this is rather interesting and am glad you put it together. I didn’t notice the house-to-people ratio in Diablo III right away, but I would say that generally the fantasy genre usually has strange environment-to-actor ratios. As long as you’re enjoying your Tristram census, I wouldn’t worry about how you spend your time in Diablo III. (Though, it might be another story if you did something like a machinima series of CSI-style investigations into each one of their deaths. :P)
Don't tempt him, he just might do it :S
At least he find it interesting.
Like how other loves opening chest and corpses for loots :p
