D&D Sunday morning quiz: Death!

Written by Expy - Published on February 3, 2008

Here’s another installment of the Sunday morning D&D quiz. There’s only 5 months left before the 4th edition of Dungeons & Dragons is published so all the DMs out there should be at their storytelling apex.

Here’s a concrete way to test your knowledge of the finer details of the game.

This week’s quiz – PC death!!

There are so many ways a DM can kill a character. Are you on top of the damage dealing rules?

What’s the maximum damage one can take from falling?

  • 10d6
  • 20d6
  • 10d6 + 1/10ft.
  • 20d6 + 1/10ft.

How much damage does a 100ft fall into 10ft of water deal?

  • 6d6 + 2d3 nonlethal
  • 8d6 + 2d3 nonlethal damage
  • 10d6 + 2d3 nonlethal damage
  • Dazed for 1 round and everybody points and laughs at the belly flop

Your hair catches on fire. What do you do?

  • A reflex save DC 15
  • I use my cape to put out the fire.
  • I run around around, flailing my arms and screaming.
  • It depends. Do I have fire resistance?

How long can you choke on smoke before taking lethal damage?

  • 1 round
  • 2 rounds
  • Depends on your Fortitude save
  • You mean fire smoke, right?

How can you starve to death in D&D?

  • By not eating
  • By fasting for 1 day + a number of hours equal to your constitution score and then failing a bunch of fortitude saves.
  • By playing with an evil DM.

How bad does a vat of acid can hurt you if you fall in it?

  • 10d6 per round
  • 20d6 per round
  • Some acids can really hurt. Others will just sting your eyes really bad.

If you’re naked outside in the cold, how cold must it be before you take lethal damage?

  • -20F
  • -30F
  • -40F
  • With party member to cuddle with: -40F. Without cuddling option: -10F.

An angry gnome hits you with an flaming greatsword? How much damage do you take (STR 18)?

  • 3d6+6
  • 1d10+1d6+6
  • 1d12+1d6+6
  • It depends. Is the gnome really angry?

How great is Dungeon Mastering?

  • It’s just great.
  • It’s awesome.
  • It’s uber-awesome.
  • It’s red-dragon-awesome.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

  4. argokirby says:

    Gosh, you think I would score better on these, I am the worlds greatest DM. But, alas I only got a 60%. The test must be rigged!

  5. Adalore says:

    76% Reasonable. considering that I had to guess 1 or 2 :)
    I am looking at you 100ftfall unto 10foot water! I never read any rules up on that.

    Don’t worry. You didn’t break anything. The survey allows for more-than-perfect scores – it depends on how the system profiles you. Do you like red dragons? That helps a lot.
