    You are right again, your CON is enough, but WIS is not. Paladins need 11 STR, 9 CON, 13 WIS, 17 CHA, right?

    Looking at my own stats, I still am not sure what I could be. A crappy mage is all I can hope it seems. Oh well.

    From the test I got:

    STR 9
    DEX 10
    CON 10
    INT 15
    WIS 16
    CHA 11

    Which are reasonable stats for Planescape: Torment.

    I guess mage or cleric (atheist priest... :lol: ) would be the most suitable. Under 3E rules, Rogue would be an option too, as they depend as much on INT as DEX, really.

    12 STR, actually.

    And while you couldn't be any of the specialty classes, you could be three of the four core classes. With requirements of only 9 in a single score, you could be a mage, cleric, or thief. And while you couldn't be a fighter, you could be a lover! :roll:
    Technically, a true "cleric" doesn't need a deity, and is generally more a follower of a cause than a god. It's when you get into "priest of X" that you're dedicated to a god. (Though some clerics just don't make the cut for the 'kit' and remain plain clerics following a certain deity, or just don't want to be a "priest of X" for power reasons.)

    And I find it highly amusing that you're sitting on the fence even with your attributes (9, 10, 11...). :shake:

    And remember, kids, all it takes is a 9 in either STR, DEX, INT, or WIS to make you eligible for fighter, thief, mage, or cleric. *cue "The More You Know" music*

    Well, the test gave me:

    Str - 13
    Dex - 13
    Con - 12
    Int - 17
    Wis - 14
    Cha - 10

    Which I guess seems reasonable, though the Intelligence section needs to be revised, and the Strength calculation was more of an estimate in my case.

    I don't know if this was the same quiz I took some time ago, but here's what I got:
    Your stats are:
    STR:9
    INT:17
    WIS:15
    DEX:12
    CON:8
    CHR:13

    I'll make a good Abjurer.

    A LE person would not help his family for example if there wasn't spme benefit for himself he wouldn't help him/her out.
    While a neutral person helps or harms out of what he/her personally thinks of that person. But a evil person would harm her/him because he is evil.

    But you use laws that benefit and detract from yourself, given your example. Bah, why am I even discussing this? Opinions vary, though you don't come across as TN, Stardust.

    Wow, my guesses were pretty close to the test...except for the strength...although I had a feeling it would probably be that low...hehehe...I didn't know I had such a good constitution...? :confused:

    STR 3
    INT 13
    WIS 12
    DEX 10
    CON 10
    CHR 16

    Test results

    Str 7
    Int 15
    Wis 14
    Dex 17
    Con 11
    Chr 11

    Probably pretty close except for dexterity. I would put that at a 15 but I guess I can keep on being a rogue.

    Interesting quiz. Some of the questions were a bit odd, and, as already mentioned, the intelligence part was crap (I also am pretty dubious about the strength part, but whatever).

    STR 15
    INT 17
    WIS 16
    DEX 12
    CON 10
    CHA 14

    I think the first three categories are overstated for me. I think DEX is pretty spot on. CON may be a point or two low, but whatever. CHA may be overstated, as it seems to cater more towards my profession (lawyer), but maybe not.

    I would have thought, like

    STR 12 (strong for my age)
    INT 16 (quick thinking)
    WIS 10 (little common sense :p )
    DEX 12 (average)
    CON 14 (pretty endurant)
    CHA 16 (well, I like myself)

    While the test gave me:

    STR 7
    INT 13
    WIS 14
    DEX 10
    CON 10
    CHA 11

    I hate tests. >__<

    But I'm definately neutral good. :D

    Well duh, I got:

    STR 11
    INT 13
    WIS 13
    DEX 10
    CON 12
    CHR 14

    What would that make me? A Paladin of the Order of the Farmyard? Wielding the terrifying Hoe of Destruction?

    This is so horribly wrong. "We're supposed to be better than this!"

    There's something wrong with that test... :almostmad:

    When I did the quiz i got:

    Str - 7
    Dex - 10
    Con - 15
    Int - 17
    Wis - 13
    Cha - 17

    I'm not really good suited for anything but I'll guess a mage would be the best bet.

    :lol: Well, STR was a complete guess. I have never attempted to bench press (or military press) anything. But just below average seems about right. As for the rest... I might've been a bit hard on myself CHA-wise (12-13 seems a closer estimate, but no more than that) but I was pleasantly surprised by WIS. I think that's largely because I'm less absent-minded than I was when a student, because I actually get sleep now. Even though it was a crude determinant, INT seems spot on. High enough to be useful, without being truly exceptional.

    I know... that's why I made the joke! Atheist clerics in D&D CRPGs always crack me up. If I'm choosing a deity though, I'd plump for Shaundakul after reading about him on NWNWiki. Clearly, this guy is just far too cool for school. :cool:

    Um, just noticed the link to the character test. It says I'm a CG Elven Ranger or Bard, but combined with the alignment test (which I've already taken before) saying I'm CN and the stats not being good enough for ranger, I guess I'm a bard. It also pumps out a deity, which is kind of weird, considering that deities are setting-specific.
    A bard with ranger aspirations does sound like me...
