I am a d12

You are the rare, the overlooked, yet incredibly useful dodecahedron: the d12. You are a creative, romantic soul. You often act without thinking, but make up for your lack of plans with plenty of heart. You easily solve problems that stump others, but your answers tend to put you into even deeper trouble. You write long, detailed backgrounds for all your characters, and are most likely to dress up as one or get involved in cos-play. You can be silly at times and are easily distracted by your own day dreams, but are at the end of the day you're someone who can be depended on.

Take the quiz at dicepool.com

If, like me, you prefer quizzes that entertain and don't take themselves too seriously, I highly recommend this one. I'm not too sure about the "romantic" part, but I do love the, er, "disclaimer" you get at the end:

"This survey is completely scientific. Despite the mind-boggling complexity of mankind, the billions of distinctly different personalities found on Earth can easily be divided into seven simple categories that correspond to the five Platonic solids, a pseudo polyhedron, and whatever the hell a d100 is. The results of this quiz should be considered not only meaningful but also infallible, and pertinent to your success as a fully realized individual. If you feel the results of this examination do not match your perceived personality, you should take whatever drastic measures are needed to cram your superego back into proper alignment, as described by the quiz results.

And if you believe that, we have some really great critical-hit insurance to sell you."

That is, indeed, an entertaining quiz. My result was astronomically wrong, but I shall begin immediately the long process of correcting myself.

I can't believe you suckered me into taking this quiz... but I just couldn't help myself, being a somewhat reformed dice-chucker and all. Then I find out that I'm a d4...

No big surprise, now that I think about it. The description mostly fits, though I'm a bit milder than implied (I think).

Good to see you back on-line, iamb. :^)

Hmmmm... If I'm going to correct myself, how does one go about becoming more romantic, anyway? ;^D

According to this qiuz I'm a d8

"No use trying to fight it, you're an eight-sided die, a d8. A fine example of simple elegance, the d8 is one of the least appreciated types of dice, and is often neglected. You are known to be quiet and shy, outward traits that conceal viscous sarcasm and mean wit. You are very smart, yet wise enough to hide your intelligence the quicker they found out how smart you are, the sooner they'll put you to work, which is something you can do without. People call you dark and pessimistic, or moody and cynical. You find little point in arguing."

Pretty accurate description, actually.

I kind of hoped I'd be a d4. I want to hurt people who step on me.

I'm a d-20!

"You are the large, round, friendly d20! (You probably didn't know this, but the shape of the twenty-sided die is called an Icosahedron.) You are the friendly, outgoing, outspoken, leader of friends. You are often looked up to, even though you don't normally deserve it. Most other types secretly wish they were you, and you'd give them tips on how, if only you had a clue yourself. Your charisma is often all you need, but you have your occasional moments of brilliance as well--just never when it's actually needed. You are the all-around good guy, a dependable chum, a respectable foe, and an inspiration to those who need one. Who says you can't get by on a smile and good looks alone?"

I may be one of the only people who has actually seen a real d100 (somewhat of a novelty item... son of a bitch never stops rolling), but I think it needs to be on the list too, just for those people who can never settle down for any reason.

I've been online the entire time, but just lurking for a while whilst I recover my fried sanity. I'm jumping back into blogging today, actually. Stop by and visit on occasion, should you find the time.

I saw a d100 in a game store once in high school, and now I regret not buying it. But I've seen several places I could order one if I wanted to.

Glad to hear your sanity's recovering. I've got a self-correcting mental block that tends to come into play when I go into that sort of mode.
