What Kind of D&D Character Would You Be?

(version 5.1EZ based on NEPPYMAN'S version 4.10)

This survey will determine your ability scores, fantasy race, class, alignment, and character level describing what you would be if you were transformed into a Dungeons and Dragons character. This is a long survey, so set aside about 15 to 20 minutes to complete all 129 questions. Each question should be answered as accurately as possible by choosing the answer that either describes you the best or the answer with which you agree the most. The answers have been placed in random order, so read carefully. You must answer every question to get the best possible result. Given the range of ability scores and the number of race, class, alignment, and character level combinations, this survey can produce over 130 BILLION different results.

Once you have finished answering all of the questions, submit your responses using the button at the bottom of this page. The results page will display all of your basic character information and the details of your alignment, race, and class. Also, HTML code that can be used to display the results on your own site and a detailed breakdown of your scores in various categories will be shown if you leave the option boxes checked.

PLEASE NOTE: This test requires support for both JavaScript and pop-up windows. If your browser doesn't support both of them, you're out of luck.
