    Holy Oracle! You know everything about Combat already. Have you ever heard of social gatherings? Put down that PHB and get out of the house!

    Feels good to know everything for once…

    Finally, an easy quiz! But what is this “A.I modifier,” of which mine doth suck?

  4. Mdonle says:

    re: question 4,

    If i ready an action, and it kicks off during another turn other than my own, I get substituted in the combat order. this isn’t classified as a change in Init?

    and since there are feats and such that alter Init, just making a Dex check doesn’t cut it, correct?

  5. Toord says:

    Cool quiz. Now, would you please not have free-form inputs anymore? Radio and select boxes are just about the most efficient way to handle quizes over the web.

  6. Yax says:

    But I like free-form inputs!

  7. Toord says:

    “But I like free-form inputs!”

    I’m just a PC, you’re the DM. You win.

  8. Yax says:

    Your score: 105%

    Your A.I. modifier -4

    YOUR FINAL SCORE:101%

    Suh-weet!
