The Oracle: A Personality Quiz

by flapjackpax


Although the War for the Obelisk plot is still fresh in our minds, the one year anniversary that marked the end of it is rapidly approaching. For many months, we have enjoyed regular Skirmish battles in Tyrannia, making a trip to the battledome a regular activity for many of us Neopians. With six very different teams (or factions) to choose from, the battles ensure we are constantly entertained with new draws, unexpected outcomes, advantageous boons and shiny avatars. However, many of us have been lucky to be on every winning team, collecting all the avatars and trying out every boon. 'What now?' I hear you ask. Perhaps it is time to settle down and become loyal to your favourite faction. 'But how can I pick one? They're all so interesting!' Never fear, young warrior, that's where this quiz comes in!

If you answered...

Mostly A: You are a Seeker! Seems like you love to learn new things and explore undiscovered lands. If the contents of the Obelisk were yours, you would use them for research and not for your own personal gain. However, you have to remember that sometimes, it is best to get your head of the books and put your knowledge to practice!

Mostly B: The Brute Squad want you! You have great physical strength and skill in battle meaning most Neopians fear the sight of you. You believe the Obelisk holds the strongest weapons in all of Neopia and no one will stand a chance against you in the battledome! A word of caution, if you still want to have friends, you could smile every once in awhile.

Mostly C: You have been stolen by the Thieves Guild! Most importantly, you know exactly what you want; that's great! You acquire everything by your cunning abilities to pickpocket and steal. You are confident that gold and many valuable treasures lie in the Obelisk. Challenges and risky situations are what you most thrive off. But be careful, despite your desires you have to know when to recognise danger and walk away!

Mostly D: You are spellbound to the Order of the Red Erisim! You are lucky to be a part of the elite group of mages and wizards of Neopia. Your magical skills and potion-making abilities are among the best in all the land. Learning what's inside the Obelisk means you will be able to progress your magical abilities even further. You know your limits and are cautious of divine and ultimate power – just be careful not to get carried away or it may be the last thing you ever do!

Mostly E: You have Awakened! You are content to lie around all day buried underground and have great patience. When boredom eventually creeps in, you want nothing more than an exciting party with lots of cake and candy. Valuable items from the Obelisk do not interest you, you just want to have a good time! The downside is, you don't have a brain.... that kind sucks, doesn't it?

Mostly F: You belong in the Sway! Being hidden and unknown to the rest of Neopia is your biggest desire. You wish to learn the art of hypnosis and rituals in order to get what you want. You think black is the new pink and never wear bright colours. What lies in the Obelisk is not entirely important to you; however you know that it must be brought within your grasp. Just try not to be too proud of your elite status, otherwise the Meepits will forever fear the sight of you!

There you have it, fellow battlers! If you have been undecided thus far as to where your loyalty lies, hopefully this quiz has aided your decision. And if not, it was still pretty fun, right?
