New Registration Question

Post Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:30 am

I've done some updates, and activated the Q&A module for the forum. Now, when a new user joins, a question is asked which must be answered correctly. Naturally, I've turned to the game for materials here.

I have one question already, but multiple questions are recommended. Ideas?

Which core demihuman does not have dark vision?
Answer: Halfling

At what level can a cleric cast magic?
Answer: 2nd

What does HP stand for?
Answer: Hit Points

At what level can a magic-user cast a 2nd level spell?
Answer: 3rd

At what level does a character hit dice stop increasing in amount?
Answer: 10th


I kept all my questions and answers confined to the core rules and geared more towards a player's perspective rather than a GM's.

If anything, they'll actually have to open the book.

I added the cleric question; I'm thinking about adding the others, but I may want to restate them a bit. I already have a question about what third-level spell a wizard would want to cast against a troll.

Having the questions and answers spelled out in a forum post sort of defeats the purpose, doesn't it....

probably not... mostly about defeating bots/scripts that create an account and post spammy/porn stuff. lots of questions that are randomly chosen should do wonders for thwarting such scripts while allowing legit people to answer easily enough.

Also, I'm rewriting the questions a bit, which should help avoid the robots learning which is which. I can't stop a real human spammer, but those are as rare as alicorns.

There was no specification about how to present the questions and answers.

I suspect JD was questioning MY intelligence there... :D

And as I say, changing the wording should help.
