DNDSMQ October 20, 2008 : D&D Sunday Morning Quiz – Tieflings

In 4th edition D&D, tieflings clawed their way out of the Monster Manual and into the Player’s Handbook. It’s been a few months since the release of 4th edition, so you should have had enough time to get to know the new PC races. Good luck on the quiz!

All answers from the D&D 4th edition Player’s Handbook

NOTE: Some email clients and RSS readers can’t submit your answers to our website. You can go to Dungeon Mastering to take the quiz.

Tieflings are the heirs to an ancient, infernal bloodline that made pacts with:

  • Demons

  • Devils
  • Primordials

Tieflings get the following ability score modifiers:

  • Fangs
  • Horns
  • Tails
  • Wings

How do Tieflings typically regard people who claim to be their friends?

  • With skepticism, until trust is demonstrated and earned.
  • They don’t care; friendship means nothing to a Tiefling.
  • As potential sacrifices
  • As someone to swap clothes with. You know, if they’re into leather and studs and stuff.

Bloodhunt grants a +1 racial bonus to attack rolls:

  • When the Tiefling is bloodied.
  • Against bloodied foes.
  • Against other tieflings.
  • In low-light conditions.

True or False:
Tieflings tend to be deeply spiritual.

  • True
  • True, but they only worship infernal entities.
  • False

Which race warred with the Tiefling empire in ancient times?

  • The Dragonborn
  • The Angels
  • The Eladrin
  • Pretty much all of them.

As befits their heritage, Tieflings are resistant to fire. If a 5th level Tiefling got hit with a fireball spell, how many damage points would the Tiefling subtract from the total amount of fire damage inflicted on him?
