What Did Bloggers Do Before Meaningless Personality Profile Quizzes Came Along?

In role-playing games on November 21st, 2006 at 5:53 pm

This one, discovered thanks to Levi Kornelsen, is about your preference in playing style when playing in an RPG

You scored as Storyteller. The Storyteller is in it for the plot: the sense of mystery and the fun of participating in a narrative that has the satisfying arc of a good book or movie. He enjoys interacting with well-defined NPCs, even preferring antagonists who have genuine motivations and personality to mere monsters. To the Storyteller, the greatest reward of the game is participating in a compelling story with interesting and unpredictable plot threads, in which his actions and those of his fellow characters determine the resolution. With apologies to Robin Laws.

  1. Quiz link isn’t working for me.

  2. I think that, technically, the meaningless personality quizzes came before the blogs.

    But the sentiment is understood :)

  3. I’m not sure what your problem was, Jim, unless the quizfarm servers were just overloaded. I just tried the link and it worked ok.

  4. Melissa,

    Yeah, they did. I remember finding the purity test back when I was in university.

    Still, they have become a staple. The mere fact that there are entire sites (several of them) says something in itself.

  5. Works now. Here’s my results:
    Storyteller 80%
    Specialist 80%
    Character Player 60%
    Weekend Warrior 55%
    Tactician 55%
    Casual Gamer 55%
    Power Gamer 10%
