I have been meaning to take that test that meranthi posted about over a week ago, and I finally did.


1.  Mahayana Buddhism (100%)
2.  Hinduism (90%)
3.  Jainism (88%)
4.  Neo-Pagan (86%)
5.  Theravada Buddhism (84%)
6.  Unitarian Universalism (80%)
7.  New Age (62%)
8.  Liberal Quakers (61%)
9.  Sikhism (54%)
10.  Scientology (53%)
11.  Reform Judaism (53%)
12.  New Thought (52%)
13.  Taoism (52%)
14.  Bahá'í Faith (45%)
15.  Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (44%)
16.  Orthodox Judaism (44%)
17.  Secular Humanism (43%)
18.  Orthodox Quaker (41%)
19.  Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (39%)
20.  Nontheist (38%)
21.  Islam (37%)
22.  Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (25%)
23.  Seventh Day Adventist (24%)
24.  Jehovah's Witness (13%)
25.  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (11%)
26.  Eastern Orthodox (8%)
27.  Roman Catholic (8%)


I consider myself pagan for a number of reasons, which I will not go into (but will if asked). Most of my reasons are probably a little on the juvenile side, because I made these decisions years ago and have not really revisited them since except vaguely in the format of my religious gaming characters.

So, these results are not terribly surprising.

And in the tradition of thastygliax, results for Chloe:


1.  Jehovah's Witness (100%)
2.  Orthodox Judaism (94%)
3.  Sikhism (94%)
4.  Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (92%)
5.  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (92%)
6.  Bahá'í Faith (89%)
7.  Liberal Quakers (83%)
8.  Islam (77%)
9.  Reform Judaism (77%)
10.  Orthodox Quaker (75%)
11.  Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (72%)
12.  Unitarian Universalism (69%)
13.  Jainism (68%)
14.  Hinduism (67%)
15.  Mahayana Buddhism (66%)
16.  Eastern Orthodox (64%)
17.  Roman Catholic (64%)
18.  Theravada Buddhism (64%)
19.  Seventh Day Adventist (62%)
20.  Neo-Pagan (52%)
21.  New Age (49%)
22.  Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (46%)
23.  New Thought (35%)
24.  Taoism (32%)
25.  Secular Humanism (31%)
26.  Scientology (29%)
27.  Nontheist (19%)

Chloe is a highly religious (spiritual) character, who goes to Church eat week and is part of a Bible class. So, I am a little surprised by how she rates on this test. I feel that most of the differences between the results and what I expected are the result of not knowing enough about the specific religions.

I tend to play my religious characters in one of two ways: Nice, earnest, helpful, generous (Fashaea, Ruqayyah, Chloe) or Militant, strong willed, determined, honest, direct (Fazia, Lazuli)

Half of my characters share my belief in pacifism and nonviolence (as violent as I act, I do not often direct physical violence as a solution to any person) and another third revere nature or the environment. Most believe in personal choice, such as in issues of divorce, abortion, and homosexuality. These are the main areas of overlap between me and my characters.

Granted, that doesn't explain Amanishaya or any of my druids.


Warning: There is a lot of stuff behind the cuts.
