Even in Fantasy, I’m still just a human

So, I took this test recently that tells you what race, class, alignment, and level you would be if you were a character in Dungeons & Dragons. Since I’ve recently taken up playing the game again (with someone other than my brother playing the DM for once), I thought it would be fun to try out.

It’s actually pretty spot on. You’re allowed to skip questions where none of the answers fit you, though you are encouraged to pick the best answers where you can. Answer honestly and you might be surprised with what you get. Looking at your detailed results could surprise you, too. I’m just disappointed I didn’t get half-elf.

Here are my results, for those who are interested.

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Druid/Ranger (2nd/1st 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 when 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.

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:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter’s dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger’s Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

So, yeah, I haven’t written anything here since July. Whoops.

That’s not to say I haven’t been writing. It’s just that the things I’ve written don’t quite fit what I want for this blog.

With summer over and Christmas coming up fast, I’m going to do my best to get back into the swing of writing here regularly again. I’m not ready to make a definite on how regularly I’ll be posting; life has a habit of getting in the way and bringing me down way too hard.

I’ll start off with something simple. What sort of content would you like to see more of? Is there anything I’ve written that you’ve particularly enjoyed? Is there anything you think needs more work or needs to be completely re-written? Is there anything you haven’t seen that you think I should try writing? Your input is invaluable to me.

I want to find some way to earn a bit of extra cash, preferably doing something that is not retail or food service, ideally something involving writing. I want to be able to live off my writing, but so far I have yet to turn up any profit for anything I’ve written. What would you suggest? What’s the best way to find people who would want to pay for my word-weaving talents?

That’s all for now, but I promise there is more to come in the near future.
