My D&D character

Ganked first from failedoptimist.

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Wizard (4th Level)

Ability Scores:

Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

I love the really negative scores for Monk and Paladin. Heh. I'm really disappointed on the low half-orc score. I always figured in the D&D party of life, I'd be the half-orc. At the very least, dwarf. But those were my two lowest-scored races. Oh, well.

As an aside, I found this questionnaire pretty frickin' lame. The big downfall of any multiple-choice personality evaluator type thing is having too limited of options, but this one took the cake. I admire their enthusiasm in trying to analogize a numeric scale or whatever the hell they're doing, but come on. My favorite was this: "The wilderness is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. True or False?" So what does false mean? I could say, "The wilderness isn't a nice place to visit," or I could say "I do want to live there," and both those statements make me have to choose "False." So if I pick false, you still don't know how if I love or hate the wilderness. Whatever.

In other "Wandering the Internet" news, I came across EarthShod Blog today, which is the blog of a self-confessed psychic reader. Tarot, tea leaves, and crystal ball, if you're interested. From the "About Me" blurb: "Ever since I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, I haven't needed a crystal ball. I could see visions in a toothbrush!" Yes. Excellent. You, too, can call this person up for a reading. $1.98/minute. Enjoy!
