Dungeons & Dragons: Druid/Wizard.

Friday, December 14, 2012

I used to play Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, never mind the claims by some religious groups that it was Satanic. Those were the days when we had to have a Dungeon Master (the guy who would tell the story and throw monsters and puzzles our way) in order to play. The rest of us players would role play certain characters and try to stay alive and complete the quests. We had to be imaginative, attentive and co-operative to succeed in the game.

These days, things have gone digital and the visuals could be quite stunning, leaving little to the imagination.

You know, I still have my 20 sided, 12 sided, 10 sided, 6 sided and 4 sided dice.

20 sided die.

Anyway, the blogmaster of Bully the Bear told me about this site which is a must visit for die hard D&D fans. Go try it out for yourself: What Kind of D&D Character Would You Be?

In the fantasy world of AD&D, I played a Chaotic Good Human Cleric. In real life, it seems that I am a True Neutral Human Druid/Wizard (3rd/2nd Level).

Ability Scores:

True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

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.

Primary Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.

Secondary Class:
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.
