My result tagged me as "Wizard," which isn't very surprising. wink.gif

Here are my scores...

Class Score
Warrior: 11
Paladin: 14
Wizard: 23
Bard: 0
Rogue: 11

By the looks of things, my second and third choices were that of a "Paladin" and a 'Warrior." A "Rogue" is neat, but not really for me and I have no interest in "Bards."

I guess this has a lot to do with how a class is defined. I guess that a bard or rogue would be more of my personal choice, since I tend to look at things from a different perspective than a lot of people. I usually try to see the underlying currents that affect any given situation. When I make a move I try to position myself so that I have the advantage. I manipulate things subtly so that I can get the result I want, and when I move I move fast and accurately. I do read a lot, but I've never been one to study, which I think a wizard would have to. But this was still a good test. I'd be interested to read what were their takes on the classes, what they think were the defining points of them.


EDIT:

I looked around the site to see more of how they define the classes. My question was answered by this paragraph:
QUOTE
Above all, you're a mastermind and a creative thinker. You see the unknown as territory to explore and the mysterious as something to be systematically unraveled. Your imagination soars beyond the limitations of mundanity. You don't have time to waste on fools; you want to spend your time with people who can carry on an intelligent conversation. For you, learning is a joy, and knowledge is the greatest treasure.


By that definition I find it pretty fitting. But at the same time, I'm a natural teacher and enjoy performing. It's a way to stimulate people around, like a catalyst. But it's also as natural to stay in the background and work the scene from the shadows. I don't need to be seen to win the game. It's all about efficiency to me.

Has anyone scored as a Rogue yet? I'm curious as to if they have their own hidden part of the site or something, like a Thieves Guild. wink.gif

Unexpected, I think. I was half expecting to get Wizard with all the choices I was making. I do believe I am a Paladin, more than anything else, but for those questions I had to pick a lot of different options that I figured went with other categories so as to answer to my satisfaction. The unexpected thing was that so many of those choices must have been plotted as Paladin choices from the beginning, leaving me with a surprisingly low score in my secondary attributes. So be it! After all, Paladins can follow the style of most other classes; it's their motivations, integrity, and general good-guyness that define them.

I was actually caught off guard by wizard. Usually I end up being a warrior on these types of things. There were some tough questions in there. Sometimes I found myself trying to decide between two or even three choices in a question, which I liked because it didn't make things easy. In a few places, I actually had to think about the questions and even answer them a bit more truthfully than I would have preferred. Fun!

I retook the test, since I didn't feel comfortable being a wizard. I'm just not the academic type, who spends a lotta time preparing for things. I'm the spontaneous guy who manipulates things, and who knows where to push, to get a certain type of reaction. I play by ear, I'm a natural performer. When on stage I control the situation. I control a big portion of what my audience feels and thinks, or at least how they go about doing them. I do what I do for the joy of doing it, because I know what brings my joy to the surface, and also have a good idea what does the same to others... I do it to see their faces, not to be praised by anyone. I'm the guy who is willing to make someone mad to make them realise they aren't thinking straight. For most of my adult years the one word that best describes myself has been 'catalyst'. I have this insight, of seeing the underlying currents, to see the big picture.
Like a poet, like a comedian, I see the flipside of the coin and work from there. For me, it's not about where I'm going but it's about how I travel. So yes, the truth has been revealed at last. I am... a Bard... kinda... Cuz there's no rogues in Silmaria. Just us bards...

I ended up as a *cough* bard as well. I seem to have lost my breakdown of points, though. I think I deleted the email by accident. frown.gif In addition to the main category, I recall scoring moderately high on wizard and paladin at least. Not too surprising, since I tend to be fairly empathetic and helpful, as well as thinking my way around a problem or situation. Other than that I've become good at reading people, diving their underlying motivations, and determining what approach to take to have the best effect.

You can find your points again when you log in, on the 1st page there, I think.

So, is there a way to send in our report on our admission mission yet? I've noticed some of the people with links in their signature already have the basic rank in their class, but I can't find a way to submit mine.
