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.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

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.
