DNDSMQ November 23, 2008 : D&D Sunday Morning Quiz – Halflings!

Now that the gnomes have migrated to the Monster Manual, halflings are the tiniest of the PC races. They’re also the most fortunate; it’s rumored that the halfling race was adopted by Avandra, the god of luck. What else do you know about halflings? Test your knowledge with these 10 diminutive questions.

All answers (except for one!) from the D&D 4th edition Player’s Handbook (The other one can be found in the 3.0 or 3.5 PH, or in the musty vaults of your memory.)

    ha ha and ive never even touched 4e lidda is just such a cool rogue apart from when she blew herself up with that magic device in 3.5

  2. Kent says:

    Yeah!!

    I knew hanging out with all those midgets would pay off!

  3. ninjaguineapig says:

    Ha! i got 80% and i dont even have 4e!

  4. steve-o says:

    I know way too much about halflings,105%, which is funny because I have never played one.

  5. Yax says:

    Wasn’t Steve-O the midget from Jackass?

  6. Steve-o says:

    I have no idea but I do not think so. I got that nickname years before Jackass and that Steve O ever came out. I should probably pick another name, but oh well.

    If I remember correctly, I think we all just started putting an “O” after everyone’s name. I do not remember why we did this I blame my college years.

  7. Av says:

    steve-o is the guy with the tats and the raspy voice. I don’t remember the midget’s name… was it little man, or something like that?

  8. Redhobbit says:

    Your score: 90%

    Your A.I. modifier +3

    I went with small in stature but great in heart for the last question.

  9. Darkskeleton says:

    Your score: 85%
    Your A.I. modifier -1
    YOUR FINAL SCORE:84%

    Impressive! You know a lot about halflings. Are you a halfling fetishist or do you just retain information well?

    I laughed at the question about halfling lifespan and the minion answer. It’s so true, right now the halfling rogue in the group I’m DMing right now has narrowly escaped death several times due to utter stupidity (I.E. Forgeting about a trap being there and walking into it a 2nd time the next in game day)

  10. dstryfe says:

    90% and A.I. +6?

    For the last one I put “size, courage” …which is the same damned thing as “stature, courage” …bah.

    What’s the A.I. thing? and what’s the actual answer to 9? It seemed a little ambiguous.
