About This Quiz

If you love Dungeons & Dragons the way we do, the biggest thrill of the game is killing that big bad guy. Whether it be a mind flayer or dragon, there's always goodies and treasure involved. But it's only satisfying if you have an amazing Dungeon Master who pulls the puppets' strings and makes the world alive. And if you find a seasoned DM who can do a little voice acting, you're golden. However, if you've watched "Critical Role," you get to see not only an amazing DM in the form of voice actor Matt Mercer but also his friends playing along and giving viewers a drama with dice rolls.

For the newer Dungeons & Dragons player, "Critical Role" gives an overview of how a typical campaign works, and it highlights not only the beginning classes (fighter, rogue, warrior and sorcerer) but some of the favorites as well (bard, hunter and druid). For those of us who have lived through a few fights, watching this group play can help us hone our skills by picking up pointers and cheer them on as they take on whatever baddie Matt throws at them. Plus, if you add the amount of homebrewing (Percy's character is an import from Pathfinder and the entire campaign came from Matt's imagination), it only encourages play!

So with a full cast of characters, all with their own quirks and perks, which one would fit your playing style best? Sharpen those pencils, get a piece of graph paper and get ready to roll for what "Critical Role" character you should play.
