Sunday morning D&D quiz

Written by Expy - Published on January 20, 2008

SMDNDQ 01-20-08

I am very proud and happy to introduce the Sunday morning D&D quiz. There’s only 5 months left before the 4th edition of Dungeons & Dragons is published so all the DMs out there should be at their storytelling apex.

Here’s a concrete way to test your knowledge of the finer details of the game.

This week’s quiz

How much distance can a mule travel in 1 day?

  • 20 miles
  • 22 miles
  • 24 miles
  • The mule always refuses to move forward.

What’s the XP cost for creating a magic item?

  • 1/20 of magic item value
  • 1/25 of magic item value
  • 1/30 of magic item value
  • You can’t know the value of the item before it’s made.

Which skills gain a bonus from Acrobatics feat?

  • Jump and Climb
  • Jump and Tumble
  • Tumble and Climb
  • None. Nobody ever took that feat.

What’s the maximum spell level a bard can cast?

  • 5th level
  • 6th level
  • 7th level
  • 2nd level. Bards never survive for very long.

How long does it take a wizard to write a new spell in a spellbook?

  • 1 hour / spell level
  • 2 hours / spell level
  • 1 day
  • It’s instantaneous. Nobody uses that rule.

What’s the maximum range of a net?

  • 10 feet
  • 15 feet
  • Touch
  • Less than my longbow

What the hell is a kukri?

  • A sword
  • A knife
  • A club
  • Sounds like a monk weapon but monks fight with their hands. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t exist.

How many HP does a 3ft. thick wall of hewn stone have?

  • 80
  • 100
  • 140
  • 540

How great is Dungeon Mastering?

  • It’s just great.
  • It’s awesome.
  • It’s uber-awesome.
  • It’s red-dragon-awesome.

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.

    79%! I rule!

  2. Tommi says:

    73%. It’s been a while since I GM’d D&D and it shows.

  3. Johnnay says:

    I cannot beilieve i scored 24%. 24! What are the real answers anyway?

  4. Yax says:

    I think I’ll wait a day or two before posting the answers. All the questions were taken from the 3.5PHB so until then you can look them up.

  5. Maikl says:

    33%. All I can say is I have got a Polish rulebooks (so there are meteres and kilometers, not feets or miles) and I use D&D 3.0, not 3.5 :D

  6. Rannok says:

    80! I am embarrassed to know so many rules.

  7. Kane says:

    66%, not bad for a old DM that is just now getting 3.5 under his belt lol

  8. Sandrinnad says:


    I always suspected D&D 3.5 made more sense if you hadn’t read the books…. thanks for confirming it!!

  9. Josh says:

    Woo! 102%! I knew it! D&D rules are so heavily ignored or house-ruled away that it’s impossible to ever know exactly what the hell is going on in a game even by reading the books. Haha!

  10. Pé0 says:

    71% take that you rulebook!!!

  11. Argokirby says:

    53% man I thought I was a DM Genious, I’m actually a tard. I wounder if Red Dragon Awesome was the right answer, I put that and I still only got a 53%, i think that Expy should give bonus points for sucking up.

  12. Yax says:

    red-dragon-awesome is the answer that’s worth the most points

  13. Idle Tuesday says:

    40%! I’m more of a first edition AD&D DM. sulk

  14. Argokirby says:

    With a little bit of wisdom I managed to score a 107% It helps to bribe the Red Dragon, hint hint!!

  15. Bert says:

    38%. That’s sucky.

  16. Saragon says:

    107%? Let’s hear it for good guesswork on the net question!

  17. Josh says:

    alright! On my second try I racked up a 122% score!

  18. Audaciousduck says:

    117% folks… and I’ve only just started DMing.

  19. Yax says:

    You guys rock! I didn’t expect anyone to score over 100%! Although my profiling tools allow for more-than-perfect results. I would have score only about 75% myself had I taken the test.

  20. Eric Martindale says:

    Nice! Loving the new template, by the way!

  21. Hoss99 says:

    WOO HOO 81% the moral is if you don’t know it make it up :0)

  22. Merv says:
