I'm reading a new roleplaying game called ICONS. It uses random generation of superpowers (if so desired) and I got the urge to roll for powers. I don't have my dice at work and...
Well to cut it short I found this QuickKwiz link and generated super powers for my game group. It was a slow lunchtime.

Powers beyond mortal ken lie within... )

Yes, Cluedo. [personal profile] irishkate mentioned that she'd never played it and my wife took it upon herself to correct this terrible gap in IK's childhood memories. We played Cludeo. I won and I was the murderer too. There's definitely something in the water at Cluedo Mansion.

Hardly a surprise. Now I can reinact "The African Queen" all by myself. Where'd I leave my gin and malaria tablets?

Your result for The Classic Dames Test...

Katharine Hepburn

You scored 10% grit, 48% wit, 38% flair, and 14% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

Blame [ profile] daftnewt, or should I say Jimmy Stewart.

Your result for The Classic Leading Man Test...

Humphrey Bogart

You scored 29% Tough, 24% Roguish, 29% Friendly, and 19% Charming!

You're the original man of honour, rough and tough but willing to stick your neck out when you need to, despite what you might say to the contrary. You're a complex character full of spit and vinegar, but with a soft heart and a tender streak that you try to hide. There's usually a complicated dame in the picture, someone who sees the real you behind all the tough talk and can dish it out as well as you can. You're not easy to get next to, but when you find the right partner, you're caring and loyal to a fault. A big fault. But you take it on the chin and move on, nursing your pain inside and maintaining your armour...until the next dame walks in. Or possibly the same dame, and of all the gin joints in all the world, it had to be yours. Co-stars include Ingrid Bergman and Lauren Bacall, hot chicks with problems.

is lazy, primarily. This quiz thinks otherwise.

cut for length )

Irritatingly the quiz (as with so many) doesn't make it easy to find out what the other results might mean. Luckily I went here instead and got the dope. I'm not sure why I show up as Verbal when I scored as high in Naturalistic intelligence (and higher than most unlike the Verbal result). I'm not sure I believe in Naturalistic intelligence, however, so perhaps it's for the best.

Your result for The Doctor Who Companion Test...

Captain Jack

You are Captain Jack - handsome, charming and always in the right place. The girls (and boys!) just can't seem to get enough of you. The Doctor can't get enough of you either, as you always seem to turn up just when the time is right. You've taken and dished a few beatings, stayed until the bitter end, and always manage to get out of trouble when it suits you. It's almost like you have a knack for being in the right place at the right time.

Still, you've made some stupid decisions in your time, and The Doctor isn't likely to let you forget them. In fact, despite your worldliness and age, you still can't seem to keep up with The Doctor as fast as some of his other companions. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be.

Your result for The Time Travel Test...

The Prototype

29% Practicality, 57% Mutability, 0% NaziLoving Wuss, 85% Woowoo?

Your time machine is the Prototype.

You don't know how it works. You barely even think you know what it does. You haven't the faintest clue how to operate it. But you're going to have fun finding out! For you, time travel is all about experimentation. Paradoxes aren't dangers to watch out for: they're challenges! And you're up to that challenge. So what if you wipe out a few universes on your quest for knowledge? You can't make a time-omelet without breaking a few time-eggs!

I've just come downstairs from getting Rowan off to bed and Sam's watching with a sort of hypnotised fascination a show called 'Hair Wars'. It's about international level hair dressing competitions.

Lifted from [ profile] mizkit, a meme wherein you draw a picture and are told nice things about yourself. Well, nice things if you're an artistic genius like [ profile] mizkit and myself.

drawing personality

What does your drawing say about YOU?

The results of your analysis say:

You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.
You are a thoughtful and cautious person. You like to think about your method, seeking to pursue your goal in the most effective way.
You are creative, mentally active and industrious.
You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.

Yay me. For the curious, some of the short things with curly tops are flowers, some are children. Do not pick the flowers.

Name 12 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow. List your characters numbered 1 to 12, with the name of the RPG you played them in. Once you've picked your 12 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly. (No peeking until you've picked your characters!) Put your answers behind a LJ-cut.

Well, I'm almost always a GM and not a player, so I've had to resort to some popular (or most hated) NPCs from the past. Here's the characters:

  1. Cerebro Masivo, Spain's Greatest Brain!

  2. Morgan le Fay, Arthur's half-sister sorceress

  3. Sir Francis Walsingham, head of Elizabeth I's spy network

  4. Sagramore le Desirous, a doughty knight of the Round Table

  5. Reverend Bastian Joshua Mulliner, vicar and hopeless romantic from Blandings Castle

  6. Morgenstern, son of Julian of Amber

  7. Gabriella the Striga, Italian witch

  8. Valdamar the Issaries Tracker

  9. Andrew Thomas, Welsh telepath

  10. Magdalen Crow of the Sewerworkers' Guild

  11. Baron Malborne, nemesis to the Fellowship of the Silver Rose

  12. Earl Robert of Salisbury, Arthurian buffer

And here's the cut. )

You Are a Centaur

In general, you are a very cautious and reserved person.
However, you are also warm hearted, and you enjoy helping others in practical ways.
You are a great teacher, and you are really good at helping people get their lives in order.
You are very intuitive, and you go with your gut. You make good decisions easily.

Just be careful not to accept any blood-stained cloaks from me for Christmas.

I wouldn't usually bother with this sort of meme as it's entirely random but I liked that it got the Insane Stowaway/Spouse right. As spouse of course, [ profile] sammywol. There'll be no insane stowing away in our ship, I'll tell you. I'm also somewhat relieved that our crimeboss nemesis is [ profile] alaimacerc. That's certainly increases our survivability.

Lifted from [ profile] agrumer the "needs" meme. Plug "your_first_name needs" into Google and grab the first ten results. Post and wonder.

  1. Myles needs a blood transfusion

  2. Myles needs a Turkey to set a precedent.

  3. Myles needs "t*ts and ass" in his film. ...

  4. Myles needs a little work on his technique, but most of all, he needs to become meaner.

  5. Myles needs now is a cast and some advice.

  6. Myles needs Sally, but Sally is dubious

  7. Myles needs a bodyguard to protect himself from us rage-filled belly-achers, right?

  8. [What] Myles needs to work on begins in his own mind.

  9. Myles needs to be more involved, Matta said.

  10. Myles needs to start telling the truth.

I wonder how you set a precedent with a Turkey?

My pirate name is:
