I got 0/25.

Accept `fighter' for `fighting man'? Maybe `hobbit' for `halfling' (I've never played D&D so maybe they're completely different things.)
Nov 18th, 2008 at 19:35 GMT
Never played D&D but got a bunch of them from guessing, and a bunch more from Fire Emblem.
Nov 18th, 2008 at 20:09 GMT
Never played D&D, so I guessed classes from Diablo and Heroes of Might and Magic and still did fairly well. 17/25.
Nov 18th, 2008 at 21:02 GMT
You forgot Thief-Acrobat as well as Cavalier for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.
Nov 18th, 2008 at 21:47 GMT
@davidr: As I understand it, TSR was prevented from using the term "hobbit" for halfling by copyright issues.
Nov 18th, 2008 at 22:02 GMT
AD&D was the best. Nostalgic sigh. I wish they had the classes from the supplemental books. You can't be an uber D&D nerd if you never played a Wu Jen or a Tinker or some other totally obscure class.
Nov 18th, 2008 at 22:38 GMT
While the timer is going, it says the number of "classs" you have entered. Also, if I remember my 2e, Priest was an overall category that encompassed Cleric, Druid, and Priest of Specific Mythos (which was mostly just a modified cleric).
Nov 18th, 2008 at 23:33 GMT
Math Chick: Would being a "Binder" count from one of the "alternative magic" books from 3.5E? Because I played one of those. Also an Artificer in Eberron.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 00:49 GMT
I never played D&D, but I had a mean deck for Spellfire, as I remember it. Stupid Wizards of the Coast...coming up after three years and buying out TSR...and then getting rid of Spellfire because it competed with Magic: The Gathering...not that I'm bitter.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 01:12 GMT
This was fun, it might be nice to have one for just 3.5 with all the prestige classes from the complete books or something. I got all but Basic D&D. I've never even heard of that, and those are races not classes. :P Speaking of races, that'd make a good one too.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 01:55 GMT
Yeah, I love to get quizzed on the prestige classes from 3.5, too. I mostly played long ago (yes, even the box), but I still kept up through 3.5. The Wu Jen were from Oriental Adventures and I can't remember where the gnome tinker was from. I'm guessing a bunch of D&D quizzes aren't on the way based on how low the comments are rated, though. A magic missile to the butts of the haters.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 02:05 GMT
davidr - Fighter is a separate name for the class. So that particular tricky guess is, in fact, remembering that it was Fighting Man. Sykes - Yes, but Priest of a specific mythos would have been "priest of X," and I didn't feel like listing all the specific gods of 2E or figuring out the various acceptable phrasings. So I just gave it for "cleric." And yes, k3lit0, in basic D&D several of the races were included as classes, so elf was just a class.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 03:40 GMT
@magister: We totally need some quizzes here for the old card games. I would love to see a MTG quiz. I wasted so much of my time and money on that game in high school.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 04:31 GMT
Please make a Magic:The Gathering release sets quiz. God, I used to know all of the editions, and in order too. Doubt I could recall them all.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 07:05 GMT
@Nezu I think they were going for classes in the Player's Handbook or included in say the OD&D "Brown Box" and so on, considering they list Thief under 1E, and the class first appeared in the OD&D supplement Greyhawk if I recall correctly. Glad they did it this way too, keeps the quiz from having Bladesingers. ;)
Nov 19th, 2008 at 12:54 GMT
never played D&D but too much Baldurs Gate, Diablo and other computer games rpgs helped me get over half. nice quiz.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 15:12 GMT
"Please make a Magic:The Gathering" "I would love to see a MTG quiz" "I had a mean deck for Spellfire" seriously? wow.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 16:01 GMT
Psionicist was added as a class later forget what edition. Naming the bestiary might be good too or the Basic and AD&D modules. Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh haha Nice quiz...a WOW quiz would be good...naming epic sets...or land areas.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 16:02 GMT
Roto, Thief-Acrobat is out of the same book that Druid, Monk, Bard, and Assassin came from, the 1st Edition PHB. So if nothing else that class should still be included, because it's both distinct from the normal Thief class, and WORSE.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 18:18 GMT
Nezu Chiza - Sorry, but you're just wrong on this one. I've got 1st ed AD&D PHB in front of me, and the only sub-class listed for Thief is Assassin.
Nov 19th, 2008 at 21:20 GMT
Phil Sandifer, you're right. It was in unearthed arcana with the cavalier. Thanks for the info about my being just wrong.

This is for geeks
Nov 25th, 2008 at 19:59 GMT
@Taylor: Yes, seriously. @hihi19 & Jeremy: No. There should never be a Magic: The Gathering Quiz. Stupid Wizards of the Coast...
Dec 2nd, 2008 at 20:30 GMT
Wizards didn't dump Spellfire because it competed with Magic, they didn't even dump it at all. TSR cut Spellfire in the fourth edition months before Wizards bought them out because it sold horribly. It was nothing but a money sink for them at a time when they were already close to going under anyway.
Dec 5th, 2008 at 01:50 GMT
Look Idran, I will remember events the way that I remember them regardless of actual facts. Stupid Wizards of the Coast...

I got 17/25, from knowing other games based on D&D (since so many RPGs are)! I did play one AD&D campaign though too. Geeks? Nerds? We sure are, and darn proud of it. ;)
Feb 12th, 2009 at 09:37 GMT
The classes from Oriental Adventures (shukenja, ronin, samurai, kensei, ninja, etc.) should probably be included as well.
Feb 12th, 2009 at 09:39 GMT
Also, Mage and Priest weren't classes in 2nd edition, they were general categories that classes got put into (wizard and all specialist wizards were in the Mage category, while Druid and Cleric were in the Priest category). The categories were used for things like qualifying for non-weapon proficiencies.
Feb 19th, 2009 at 03:13 GMT
There was no "Mystic" in Basic D&D. At least not in the red and blue boxed set that I had as a kid.
Mar 6th, 2009 at 12:35 GMT
They had halfling and elf as *classes* in Basic D&D, and not as races? Interesting.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 19:58 GMT
I demand prestige classes next! All of them! Ekedolphin -- Yeah, my dad played basic back in the 70's. They were races. I'm kinda glad I'm in the time of 3rd edition, myself.
Apr 6th, 2009 at 01:19 GMT
that was hard
May 27th, 2009 at 15:56 GMT
Comment #1: Please be more specific with the versions of the game and include the year of publication. The standard class names are subtly different with each version. The distinct versions of the game are: a) "Dungeons & Dragons - 1974"; b) "Basic Dungeons & Dragons - 1977"; c) "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - 1978"; d) "Basic Dungeons & Dragons - 1981"; e) "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Second Edition - 1989"; f) "Dungeons & Dragons Third Edition - 2000" g) "Dungeons & Dragons Third Edition Revised - 2003" h) "Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition - 2008"
May 27th, 2009 at 15:57 GMT
Comment #2: Like other Sporcle quizzes, you should put the full class listing under each heading. Allow the entries with the same names to auto-fill to all lists. (e.g. "Fighter" will show up in every list except the 1974 version.)
May 27th, 2009 at 15:57 GMT
Comment #3: For the third-edition lists, include the NPC classes and the prestige classes from the DMG.
Jul 7th, 2009 at 16:42 GMT
@Mike F - You're right on comment #2 - in hindsight, I should have had classes appear in every edition they were in. That said, I disagree entirely with comment #3, which would have served mostly to introduce a ton of answers hardly anyone would get, and somewhat with #1 - again rather a lot of nitpicky distinctions. I felt bad enough demanding "fighting man" as distinct from Fighter. This is a quiz where, more than most, it's tough to balance the need for completism with the need for it to remain fun for people other than the hardcore devotees. Omitting prestige classes and smoothing the editions list were both, I think, necessary concessions.

How did I miss Mystic? I *play* a Mystic!
