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.

    64% whoorah.

    a roper is a tree right? :p

  2. Yax says:

    I’ll post the answers later this week. I’m sorry to make you wait. Until then you can always grab a copy of the Monster Manual 3.5. That’s where I took all the answers.

  3. Bert says:

    50%? I got pwned by the quiz.

  4. Sandrinnad says:

    72%? cool!

    Though I’m a little hurt that you’re excluding us gaming girls from an amusing out of the Gorgon question :)

  5. Yax says:

    I edited the question. :)

  6. Michelle says:

    25%. Not bad for someone who doesn’t play d&d.

  7. Sandrinnad says:

    cool :D
    off to test it out!

  8. Bob says:

    is there a reason the total is over 100%?

  9. Russell says:

    So what are the correct answers?

  10. SunShadow says:


  11. arokiry says:

    I believe that I was duped. The last quiz clearly indicated that the last answer was right on each one, I think that it is unfair to move around where the correct answers are!

  12. Yax says:


    The reason you can score over 100% is that Dungeon Mastering uses profiling tools to adjust the score. How fast you take the test, how much you love red dragons, and if you are one with the internet at the moment you take the test – it all affects your score and can push it over 100% or under 0%.


    I’ll post the answers soon.


    You were indeed duped. In your face! :)

  13. Cbow says:

    103% WOOT!! and i havent made it past 3rd edition yet

  14. Graham says:

    Hooray, the scoring system is completely random.

    I clicked back and submitted the same answers again. My score changed from 65% to 75% to 73% to 62%…


    And a roper is a stalagmite, not a tree. Yet tree gives you more points. From the MM: “This creature looks much like a natural stalagmite”

  15. Yax says:

    All right… The truth has to come out. I have boasted about my state-of-the-art profiling. But I don’t really profile anything. I just coded a randomized algorithm.

    That being said… The correct answer to question number 1 is that a roper is an evil stalagmite. You always a better chance of scoring high if you get all the right answers. I can’t give too many details about the “profiling” process though.

  16. Graham says:

    Every right answer is worth 2d6%?

  17. Yax says:


    I was not smart enough to come up with a 2d6 or 2d8 per good answer algorithm. It’ a great idea.

    @Mr. Drain:

    That’ why you’re THE d20 source!

  18. Scott says:

    Wow.. for a second there I was going to be happy with my %55 percent.. but, it turns out that they quiz gives pitty points??? I’m crushed! ;-)

  20. Ariannos says:

    I’m pretty sure that a Gorgon can not fly. So Hover and FlybyAttack are the most ovious.
    I need to see the right answer. Only got 72%
