About This Quiz

Whether you're a veteran dungeon crawler or a player who is learning the difference between a D10 and D20, there is always a thrill in creating your character for a new Dungeons & Dragons campaign. You can pick a rogue with a heart of gold, a paladin who is Superman in disguise, or on the flip side, you could create a shady monk with nothing in mind aside from causing the world to burn. You roll your dice for your stats, put pencil to paper (or key to screen) and make that concept a reality. 

There is one problem, though. You sit down to play, but when it comes to acting the way your character would, you can't bring yourself to do it! A lot of times, it is because of emotion; lawful good characters are very black and white, and hints of gray can throw off a game. Neutral characters are ruled by logic and only act in ways that seem reasonable. As for chaotic evil characters, don't get us started on them! It takes a truly talented player to play a character that is the complete opposite of how they would act away from the table.

So are you the same alignment as your character? It's highly unlikely. We're going to pop you into some D&D experiences, and you tell us what you'd do. Let's get ready to roll!
