Many of us have taken various personality assessments from the Meyers-Briggs to the daily horoscope to Quizzilla’s “Which Firefly Character are You?” test. These allow us to pinpoint character strengths and weaknesses in ourselves. But results may vary.
Depending on the internet quiz, I’m Zoe, Snake Plissken, Han Solo, or Wile E. Coyote. More professional type assessments are often just as vague. This doesn’t really help me much. That’s why I think roll playing game companies should make personality assessment, based on various d20-type rules, where they take one’s personal attributes and career aptitudes and paint a more accurate picture than what we currently see with other tests.
This is what I rolled up so far, complete with Player’s Guide explanations:
Character Name: Clinton A. Harris
Class: Writer (Specialization: SF)
Level: 3 (Aspirant)
Armor Class: 8 (5 against Rejection and Criticism)
Strength: 12 (I should be working out more)
Dexterity: 13 (I can make coffee in my sleep without spilling!)
Constitution: 9 (I’m a cheap date, okay?!)
Intelligence: 15 (I’m no Cormac McCarthy, but I do okay)
Wisdom: 16 (You call it cynical, I call it “wise”)
Charisma: 14 (as a Writer, gain +2 with written word, suffer -3 in personal interaction)
