D&D Sunday morning quiz: PHB trivia!

Written by Expy - Published on March 9, 2008

DNDSMQ 03-09-08

This week’s quiz should be a lot of fun. I don’t think it’s too tough although 5 correct answers are required to score the 20 points on the impossible question. Good Luck!

Edit: I corrected 2 answers

All the answers are taken from the 3.5 core rulebooks. I’m a not responsible if you choose a wrong answer based on rules from Monster Manual 14: Prehistoric Invertebrates.

NOTE: Some e-mail clients aren’t able to submit your quiz answers to the website. If you’re reading this from an e-mail subscription you should head to Dungeon Mastering to take the quiz.

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.

    Um, Kord is Chaotic Good. Not evil last time I checked.

  2. Eric Pierson says:

    Isn’t Kord a non-evil god also? I thought he was CG….
    crap missed above comment

  3. Aaron O says:

    Your score before profiling: 80 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: 6
    YOUR SCORE: 86%

    Astounding! Almost perfect! Your score is so good you should use it in a pickup line!

    My best yet! yeah me

    And this is straight from the PHB: “Kord, the god of strength, is chaotic good. He is known as the Brawler. Kord is the patron of athletes, especially wrestlers. His worshipers include good fighters, barbarians, and rogues. The domains he is associated with are Chaos, Good, Luck, and Strength. Kord’s favored weapon is the greatsword.”

  4. Jamie says:

    “Your score before profiling: 110 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: 10
    YOUR SCORE: 120%

    More than perfect! Impressive! Aren’t you glad you gave up on your social life?”
    Fortunately, I saw the previous comments about Kord, so I picked the *other* non-evil deity. However, Kord is a valid answer, and that bug needs to be fixed.

  5. Russell says:

    Kord isn’t evil! He’s chaotic good. I just checked both the PHB and the Dieties and Demigods books.

  6. Bobby says:

    Uh.. yeah Kord. Chaotic Good.
    Is it opposite day? :P
    Or maybe you meant to ask which one is not Chaotic?

  7. Joseph says:

    Ummm… Technically an ogre would take 3 rounds to move 100ft while squeezing, because he would be able to double move in every round right? So he would move 40ft per round? =X

  8. Adalore says:

    I FHAIL!!!
    Your score before profiling: 34 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: -3
    YOUR SCORE: 31%

    Wow… That must hurt. It’s ok – I’m sure your parents still love you.


  9. Yax says:

    looks like I screwed up 2 questions out of 10. Not bad.

  10. Yax says:

    I corrected the 2 erroneous answers. I might need a trivia editor

  11. Reverend Mike says:

    Your score before profiling: 90 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: -6
    YOUR SCORE: 84%

    Congratulations! You are quite knowledgeable! Do you even need a PHB when you create a character?.

    I usually don’t…

  12. Sandrinnad says:

    Your score before profiling: 40 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: 2
    YOUR SCORE: 42%

    Wow… That must hurt. It’s ok – I’m sure your parents still love you.

    apparently falling on my sword didn’t help….hmmmm….must ponder :)

  13. The DM says:


    Your score before profiling: 60 / 100
    Your psychological profiling modifier: -5
    YOUR SCORE: 55%

    Gimmee a break, though… DMs don’t have to know the PHB, right?!?

  14. Graham says:

    It doesn’t change the answer, but in your example for #6 (gargantuan reach), Bulettes are Huge, not Gargantuan.

  15. Yax says:

    Geez. Definitely not my week. But don’t despair. A few people were gracious enough to volunteer as trivia editors.

  16. Colin says:

    The AC question is out of whack as well. Shield is a personal spell, so a dwarven fighter with no levels in an arcane spellcasting class cannot be under the effect of a shield spell.

  17. Yax says:

    I never said anything about no level in arcane spellcasting! :P

  18. Tolidor says:

    Another good option for a dwarven fighter with no spells would be a potion of Shield. Well worth the gold for anyone who doesn’t carry a real one.

  19. LEONIDOS says:

    60 not bad for me still prefer ADND.
