ODD Bits 3

ODD Bits is a web log series of trivia questions culled from the pages of Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of original Dungeons & Dragons. If you care to play along, answer each ODD Bit question to the best of your knowledge without referring to the source material. Answers are provided in the comments section, so don't peek there until you've tried to answer all five questions.

Grade yourself based on the number of questions you answered correctly*:

5: Unbelievable, 4: Outstanding, 3: Well Done, 2: Not Bad, 1: Not Good,
0: Embarrassing

* - Sham is the referee here, so any rules interpretations taken are final, even if viewed through his warped lens.

ODD Bits 3

1. One miscellaneous magic weapon is found with a bonus of +2, but not +1 or +3. Name it.

1. Mace.
2. Conan.
3. False. It deals 2d6.
4. Four.
5. Green Dragons, Wyverns, Purple Worms.

I'm getting worse! I only got two this time.

I got Wyvern, and thought about putting Purple Worm, but I completely forgot about the Green Dragon.

You totally got me on the Dwarven Hammer, though. I thought I had that one cold, until I actually looked it up.

Sham aka Dave said...

This group was a bit tougher than last week. I am still trying to figure out how to balance the five questions.

In the end I hope readers will learn a thing or two about OD&D and its unique characteristics.

Matt Finch said...

Ouch! Only a "not bad" on this one. I fanned on the mace, the war hammer, and the poison monsters. I remembered Conan, and the dwarf one is easy.

George said...

For #5, why isn't a Medusa listed, since it says the snakes have deadly poison? I realize that Sham has final say! :)

Because the snakes are not a medusa, they're a separate symbiotic monster.

Right? :P

In this manner my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's report launches with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL VIDEO.

You see, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he discovered hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get everything they want.

These are the exact same secrets many celebrities (especially those who "come out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and successful.

You probably know that you use less than 10% of your brain.

That's mostly because most of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

Perhaps that expression has even occurred INSIDE your very own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind seven years back, while riding an unlicensed, garbage bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and with $3.20 in his bank account.

"I'm very fed up with living check to check! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

You took part in those conversations, am I right?

Your success story is going to start. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
