Afterwards, post the results, and if you agree with them. I know this problem. If you do not agree, post why. I will try to fix it, if it's within the test.

I got half-elf. I don't agree though, because I'm definitely a human.

What if you answer A B then C in the first three questions?

2011-03-13, 09:47 PM
Apparently I'm a Dwarf. Which is ironic because I'm not named after a vegetable and I'm fairly certain I'm not a long lost king.

2011-03-13, 09:48 PM
I got human. I think this one's on the mark.

2011-03-13, 09:50 PM
At first I got a 3 way split in the first question round, so I had to re-take and then I got human.
You should probably make the quiz ambiguity-proof.

2011-03-13, 09:50 PM
Human, huh? That's to be expected as almost every "What Race are you?" quiz I take online points me towards human. Quick question to the OP, did you make this?

2011-03-13, 09:51 PM
I got Dwarf, and besides my greater-than-middling height, I agree with that classification.

2011-03-13, 09:52 PM
I be a dwarf.

2011-03-13, 10:16 PM
I'm short, hairier and stouter by the day... I suppose that fits "Dwarf."

I'm a halfling.

which is ironic, because I'm tall. is it ironic? I'm not actually sure.

2011-03-14, 12:48 AM
I got human. I would have to agree with this as it is what I play the most.

2011-03-14, 01:19 AM
I got Elf. I can kinda see it.

2011-03-14, 01:27 AM
I got Half-Dragon Drow....wow what... :smalltongue:

But in all seriousness, half-elf here, and totally loving it! Best of two worlds man.

2011-03-14, 02:25 AM
Got half elf. Ive never seen a quiz done in spoilers like that; impressive!!

2011-03-14, 02:41 AM
I recommend making a fourth statement for the first part so there's always a majority. I had to choose a different answer on the last one so I could get a result.

Anyway, I got half-elf. I suppose I can see that.

2011-03-14, 03:46 AM
I got Elf, which really wasn't all that surprising as It's basically what I always play as. Could have just as easily gotten Halfling though, the last part was pretty ambiguous for me.

Hmm, I really should try playing a Halfling one of these days I guess...

2011-03-14, 04:44 AM
half elf... I'd see it, if it weren't so unoptimized.... :smallamused:

I recommend making a fourth statement for the first part so there's always a majority.

Even with four questions you can still have a two-way tie.

2011-03-14, 02:59 PM
Human, which makes sense. I don't need no plastic ear extensions to be unique!

That was fun enough, but the options very pretty stereotypical (I'd say 'racist' but that joke wouldn't really be all that funny) for each race so it was easy to guess what choices lead where before opening the results.

Either half elf or half orc (I waffled on a question and followed the quiz down the 2 branches), but that's wrong. I am an Elan.

I rarely eat, I never sleep, and people think something is off about me. We'll see how the aging goes in a few years.

2011-03-14, 03:01 PM
Dwarf. Which is not that bad of a match actually.

2011-03-14, 03:03 PM
Human, apparently.

The problem is, as with most such quizzes, my preferred answers were often not available and I had to pick the one that at least was remotely plausible.

I'm only human. How anticlimactic :smallredface:

Also, someone should make a huge quiz for this sort of thing with all options covered (your favorite weapon: dual wield mwk TV remotes)

2011-03-14, 03:29 PM
I got half-elf, which is okay I guess. I mean the 4e fluff fits pretty well, never quite feel in place, caught between two worlds, more likely to pick up talents and skills from multiple sources.

Though my ranged weapon question didn't have my most likely answer as an option...

2011-03-14, 03:37 PM
I got Half-Dragon Drow....wow what... :smalltongue:

But in all seriousness, half-elf here, and totally loving it! Best of two worlds man.

Same here. Am quite happy with my result :smallsmile:

2011-03-14, 03:37 PM
I got whichever race gets bored easiest. (Clicking that many "spoiler" tabs is annoying).

2011-03-14, 03:40 PM
Same here. Am quite happy with my result :smallsmile:

Wow, two half-dragon Drows in one thread. This is amazing. :smallbiggrin:

Octopus Jack
2011-03-14, 03:43 PM
Cool I got Elf, I did not see that coming.

2011-03-14, 04:00 PM
Wow, two half-dragon Drows in one thread. This is amazing. :smallbiggrin:

Oh shush, smartypants :smalltongue:

2011-03-14, 08:38 PM
Human here, quite unsurprisingly. I usually play one because, hey, FREE FEAT & SKILLPOINT! :smallbiggrin:

Also, Pathfinder Half-Elf is actually good, so I'm going to try that one out soonish.


2011-03-15, 12:47 AM
I got Half-Elf, which I can deal with, so long as I'm a Pathfinder Half Elf and not a 3.5 Half Elf. :smallbiggrin:

I had a lot of issues with the right answer not existing, and having to settle for some not-particularly-close approximation, too. And I took the test as myself, and as several of my recent D&D characters, and came up with:

Me: Human... I guess. Half the answers I want aren't there and my closest approximations resulted in a three-way tie in the first bit, but if I use less-close approximations I can kind of make it work.

The half-orc: Approximately half-elf. You call me elf-blood, try to make me angry. You say I use bow because I like elfs, also make me angry. You not like me when am angry. Elfs weak, not able to pull my bow, even. See how much like elf I am when put arrow in your eye, or saber through skull, and feed carrion to wolfs.

The human: Also approximately a half-elf.

The dwarf: Half-orc.

The giant's-blooded human: Definitely a dwarf. A seven-plus-foot dwarf. He's got a beard!

The other dwarf: Dwarf! You're lucky I found Runesmith, or this one would've missed, too. He does stomp around in adamantine full plate and swing a greataxe... but his preferred ranged weapon is disintegrate.

2011-03-17, 10:39 AM
Rather predictably, Half-Elf. I'm about the right size too. 5'8". Also, I've taken longer to mature than some of my peers, and I'm planning to outlive them all. And most of you too.:smallbiggrin:

2011-03-17, 12:25 PM
I'm a halfling.

which is ironic, because I'm tall. is it ironic? I'm not actually sure.

It's ironic because you're a human.

I got "Cyborg Brain Inside a Jar", so I have to give the test props for accuracy.

2011-03-17, 07:35 PM
Half elf.

Pretty accurate. That is a nice way you set it up though, very creative.

2011-03-17, 08:19 PM
I got Half-Elf.

I won't argue, as long as the other half gets to be "Eldritch Abomination".

... And both halves are Undead.

2011-03-17, 11:01 PM
In response to the many questions:

1.Yes, I made this myself.
2.I will be updating this to make it less ambiguous.
3.I will also add a "Which class are you?" quiz.
4.Well done, for not spoiling the quiz.

2011-03-17, 11:14 PM
Half-Orc! accuracy at its finest :smallamused:

2011-03-18, 04:25 PM
Half-dragon elf vampire. Now if I can just convince a werepanther to bite me, I'll be set.

2011-03-18, 04:28 PM
Human. Why am I not surprised? :smallamused:

the Riddler
2011-03-18, 04:29 PM
Heh, figures. A friggin' elf. :sigh:

2011-03-18, 06:29 PM
Human. Makes sense, both in that I generally prefer to play humans in RPGs, and in that I'm human IRL.

2011-03-18, 06:40 PM
Half-elf, for entirely different reasons than for all the other times I've tested half-elf. :smallconfused:
