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.

    “Are you a shapeSHIFTer? Because you seem more beautiful every time I look at you.”

    “You must not be PUSHy, because I’m feeling a strong PULL in your direction.”

    “I’m like a slime-mold attracted to beauty, and I’m SLIDING in your direction.”

    That first and third ones work, right? Those are totally original, too. I’m pretty sure, anyway.

    DISCLAIMER: My pick-up lines are in no way fit for the real world, and should not be used therein. I am in no way responsible for complete loss of social status or other detrimental effects stemming from the use of the above pick-up lines.

    EDIT: Also, 80%, and I haven’t read the 4e books at all! W00t!!!11!!one!!two!!11thursday!!!1

  2. John says:

    Boo-ya, my first ever over 55%!

    Your score: 100%

    Holy Critical Hit! You know everything about D&D combat! You must be a hit with the ladies! (no? you must be popular with your D&D friends?)

  3. Kevin says:

    Your score: 80%

    Impressive! You know almost everything about D&D combat. Now put down the PHB and go hang out with real, actual human beings.

    And I haven’t even cracked a 4e book. Is there a reason we don’t get to see the answers anymore?

  4. Yax says:

    @ Kevin:

    Yes there is a reason why you don’t see the answers anymore. My old computer died and I changed the quiz code. The answers will be back after GenCon probably.

  5. jtptan says:

    Hello! I thought I ought to say ‘hi’ as I’ve been lurking around for the past three weeks.

    “You must be some sort of rogue, because you keep _shifting_ my eyes towards yours”

    Yes? Think it would work?

  9. Dave T. Game says:

  10. Aresnasti says:

    Your score: 80%

    Impressive! You know almost everything about D&D combat. Now put down the PHB and go hang out with real, actual human beings.

    But isnt that who I am hanging with when I play?

  11. Yax says:

    @vdgmprgrmr & jtptan: Smooth pickup line(s)!

    @Dave T. Game: Not so smooth pickup line!

    @Gorthmog: Can anything involving gelatinous cubes be considered a pickup line? I say yes and if you get a girl with it she must be “the one”.

  12. reachx says:

    imagine what my score would be if i could actually find a gaming group and wasn’t still crpg’ing (se previous reason). I learned 3rd and 4th in hopes of a decent computer game. After seeing the GSL i best not hold my breath.
