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.

  1. Saragon says:

    59% before being profiled, though I left the IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION blank. I think I’ll call that “not too bad”.

  2. Yax says:

    not bad indeed. The impossible question is worth 20 points, the others 10 each

  3. Sandrinnad says:

    57% pre-profile/54% post-profile….seems about right :D

  4. Ricardo says:

    23%??? I woulda been better choosing random answers…

  5. Johnnay says:

    62% before profilng. 39 after! This website hates me.

  6. Shaneluv says:

    AHHH sad, 56 before and 55 after profiling. I like gnomes and halflings… I made a pirate ship full of them once…. Oddly… they didn’t get much done. (PS Alchemy Labs and ships don’t mix)

  7. Alex says:

    Your score before profiling: 57 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: -3

    Not too bad for choosing more or less at random :-)

  9. Andrew says:

    Congratulations! You are quite knowledgeable! You should be a gnomologist.

    I guess having just read those chapters last night helped

  10. Jamie says:

    “Your score before profiling: 99 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: 8
    YOUR SCORE: 107%

    More than perfect! Impressive! Are you a halfling or a gnome?”
    ————————–
    One of the 2 campaigns I’m running at the moment has the “short folk” (gnomes, halflings, dwarves, and some of the smaller fey) as the most common races, so I’ve had to get to know a lot about them recently, and it’s stuck pretty well.

  11. Kili says:

    Your score before profiling: 58 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: 2
    YOUR SCORE: 60%

    I would have done better if we did gnome punting and gully dwarf punting (she kept coming back for more :D ).

  12. Reverend Mike says:

    Your score before profiling: 74 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: 5
    YOUR SCORE: 79%

    Congratulations! You are quite knowledgeable! You should be a gnomologist.

  15. Adalore says:

    Hah.

    You know… There are worse things in life than miserably failing a quiz on halflings and gnomes.

    Thats me guessing. :D

    All those years of playing the shorties paid off ;)

  18. StingRay says:

    Your score before profiling: 95 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: 18
    YOUR SCORE: 113%

    So, forgive me, as I’m a new subscriber to Dungeon Mastering, but what’s with the profiling modifier?

  19. Yax says:

    The quiz analyzes your psychological profile. You get bonus points if the system likes you and if you think red dragons are awesome.

  20. Brenton says:

    Wow, 84 / 80

    I must have gotten the impossible question correct. Sweet.

  21. Yax says:

    This answer to the impossible question is 500 years, btw.

    I guess years of DnD pays off…I did this off the cuff

  24. Alphadean says:

    After checking it out and having a moment to think, I got a sweet score….D&D pays off again

  25. FireRaven says:

    well, I didn’t fail. can I say for extra credit that when being chased by a red dragon I only need to outrun the halfling?

  26. FireRaven says:

    “Your score before profiling: 68 / 100
    Your profiling modifier: 2
    YOUR SCORE: 70%”

    well, I didn’t fail. can I say for extra credit that when being chased by a red dragon I only need to outrun the halfling?

  27. Yax says:

    You get extra points with Expy, that’s for sure.

    I need to come up with a better score sharing system for the quizzes. We’ll see. Life might get in the way.

    […] On another note, I don’t know what it is, but Yax seems to send his best stuff out on Sunday and Monday.  This Sunday’s quiz was on gnomes “rarrr, I’m a monster” and hobbits halflings.  I scored 60% – see if you can do better. […]

  2. […] yeah! Not only is the name amazing (learn more about gnomes here) but I trust the guys behind Treasure Tables to deliver the goods, whenever they choose to start […]
