What Type of D&D Character Should You Play?

Survey here

I've been planning on getting into Dungeons & Dragons recently and so I've been reading up on everything I can. Lately I've started thinking about characters I would play or campaigns I would run as a Dungeon Master.

This survey is lengthy but it does a pretty good job of breaking down the different aspects of a D&D character. Of course one of the main aspects of D&D is role-playing so you can just choose whatever type of character you want, but if you want to play a character that feels like yourself and would act and react accordingly, with all your strengths and weaknesses, this is a fun way to pick one.

On my most recent completion of this survey I got Neutral Good Human Bard and the time before that I got Chaotic Good Half-Elf Wizard (because for some questions there's no answer that feels "just right", and your answer may change depending on your mood or something)

That is one time consuming survey. Did it rather quickly so not sure how accurate. But am a:

Chaotic Neutral Halfling Sorcerer (4th Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength- 19
Dexterity- 15
Constitution- 16
Intelligence- 17
Wisdom- 16
Charisma- 15

I understand what your talking about in needing to take it more than once.

Those are some nice stats but based on that I think barbarian or fighter is more appropriate.

That doesn't even make sense. Paladins have to be Lawful Good. This quiz is confused, haha.

I will take your word for it because I don't even know the slightest about any of that or interpreting the stats.

Barbarian and fighter sound dull compared to sorcerer. I'm not sure I would like that.

Yes, it assigns you an alignment (lawful/neutral/chaotic, good/neutral/evil), race (dwarf, elf, gnome, half-elf, half-orc, halfling, human), and class (barbarian, bard, cleric, druid, fighter, monk, paladin, ranger, rogue, sorcerer, wizard). It also calculates a level and stats based on the confidence/consistency of your answers.

Only the basic options for class and race, but it's a pretty good starting point

I've done this one before, and I think I got something really boring like a human fighter.

In real life I prefer playing Elves, and for classes I like Bards or anything flamboyant and swashbuckler-y. I really enjoy the Swordmage class in 4e, it's not the best defender but it's a lot of fun, especially if you're a Eladrin Elf and can teleport multiple times.

As a long-time player and DM, I say play whatever catches your inagination. For me it is elves or half-dragons(yes that is an actual "race" with variations depending on the type of dragon parent) or gnomes, and for classes I like bards, wizards or multi-class fighter/mage (bladesingers and the like). In fact I am running my regular library game this Saturday. Should be fun- the group is in a goblin lair that is actually the upper level of a dragon's den.....
