DNDSMQ September 7, 2008 : D&D Sunday Morning Quiz – Monsters

I don’t know about you but I love cracking the Monster Manual open when I have 5 minutes to kill. I always find a tidbit of information that I had missed before – and it doesn’t give carpal tunnel syndrome like killing time on the web. Anyhow, if you’re like me you will probably ace this monster trivia quiz. Good luck

All answers from the D&D 4th edition Monster Manual

    Awesome quiz as usual … except I think the last question is not being score properly (probably something due to the free-form entry).

  2. Yax says:

    Thanks for letting me know. I’ll double check. The maximum score for this quiz is 113% so you might still score perfect with one messed up question.

  3. Yax says:

    Ok, I double-checked the code. It worked for me. As long as the answer is comma-separated, you should be good:

    Example: Answer 1, answer 2

    It’s not case sensitive and it trims extra blank spaces. The code looks solid.

  4. Johnnay says:

    Funny quiz!

    Your score: 83%

    Your A.I. modifier +10


  5. Baldorc says:

    Unicorns are overrated.

    Your score: 113%

    Your A.I. modifier +2


  6. lurker says:

    “Your score: 105%

    Your A.I. modifier +3


    Holy Aspect of Orcus! You need everything about 4e monsters already. Put down that book and get out of the house!”

    I haven’t even cracked that book open! ;)

    Nice quiz.

  7. Turlock says:

    If I didn’t know what a Devourer was, I probably would’ve put that for Question #1 instead of a Gnome. That and I’m a ranger who just made a fantastic venison stew yesterday.

    (Footnote: No gnomes were harmed in the making of this stew.)

    Your score: 105%

    Your A.I. modifier +5



    Guess I should’ve written, “If I didn’t know what a Devourer IS,…” but I always speak in the past tense when discussing undead. They’re only UNdead until we’ve been formerly introduced. Ok, I’m a stew loving, undead hating ranger but that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

  8. Michelle says:

    im just happy i got the bonus question right with spelling!

  9. Lord Slayde says:

    I won’t complain, only read thru the Monster Manual and PHB 4E once so far. (Ok, once thru and random pick-ups here and there… :)

    Your score: 93%

    Your A.I. modifier +2


  10. Gregory says:

    I feel the need to bemoan the fact that all the races from the PHB are in fact NOT in the Monster Manual. There’s no half-elf entry! This made me sad when I first found out about it, and it makes me sad today.

  11. Yax says:

    Good point. I missed that. And why wouldn’t the half-elf be in the MM anyway?

  12. Jeremy says:

    Are you certain it isnt Githyanki and Githrebel?

  13. Yax says:

    Yes, pretty sure.

  14. some unsolcalized homeshcooler says:

    i got 40% :-(

    kolbolds are underrated.
