Below are a few questions from Utima IV: Quest of the Avatar, an outdated (but goodie) RPG game of old. You are asked to make choices. There are no good ones, but you must choose one good over another.

Each question presents a choice between one of the eight virtues of the Avatar. These Virtues when combined form the Principles of Courage, Love, and Truth :

Courage is the will to struggle, for beliefs and for others, and is formed of the Virtues of Honor, Sacrifice, Spirituality, and Valor.

Love is the empathic bond that unites the self to all others, and is formed of the Virtues of Compassion, Justice, Sacrifice, and Spirituality.

Truth is the "objective" reality (that which is not false) and is formed of the Virtues of Honesty, Honor, Justice, and Spirituality.


The virtue one predominantly chooses over all others determines one's character class at the onset of the game and where that character starts on the map.

Sometimes the choice seems easy. The setting is feudal and some of the situations seem far removed from our own daily reality. Not always so. What of the following question for example?

Thou hast sworn to do thy Lord's bidding in all. He covets a piece of land and orders the owner removed. Dost thou:

* Refuse to act, thus being disgraced
* Keep thine oath and evict the landowner

What would Colin Powell's answer be? What of Condoleezza Rice?





Although a teacher of music, thou art a skillful wrestler. Thou hast been asked to fight in a local championship. Dost thou:

* Accept the invitation and fight to win
* Decline knowing thou art sure to win

During a pitched battle, thou dost see a fellow desert his post, endangering many. As he flees, he is set upon by several enemies. Dost thou:

* Let him fight alone
* Risk thine own life to aid him

Thou hast been taught to preserve all life as sacred. A man lies fatally stung by a venomous serpent. He pleads for a merciful death. Dost thou:

* Heed thy beliefs and refuse
* End his pain

After 20 years thou hast found the slayer of thy best friends. The villain proves to be a man who provides the sole support for a young girl. Dost thou:

* Slay him
* Spare him for the girl

As one of the King's Guard, thy Captain has asked that one amongst you visit a hospital to cheer the children with tales of thy valiant deeds. Dost thou:

* Let another go
* Agree and play the braggart

Thou art at a crossroads in thy life. Dost thou:

* Choose the life of a Paladin, striving for Truth and Courage
* Choose the life of a Shepherd, and a world of simplicity and peace

Thou art an elderly, wealthy eccentric. Thy end is near. Dost thou:

* Donate all thy wealth to feed hundreds of starving children, and receive public adulation
* Quitely live out thy life, willing thy fortune to thy heirs

A merchant owes thy friend money, now long past due. Thou dost see the same merchant drop a purse of gold. Dost thou:

* Return the purse intact
* Give thy friend a portion of the gold first

Thee and thy friend are valiant but penniless warriors. Thou both go out to slay a mighty dragon. Thy friend thinks he slew it, thee did. When asked, dost thou:

* Allow thy friend the large reward
* Claim the gold

Thou hast spent thy life in charitable and righteous work. Thine uncle the innkeeper lies ill and asks you to take over his tavern. Dost thou:

* Give thy life of purity to aid thy kin
* Decline and follow thy spirit's call

Thou art sworn to protect thy Lord at any cost, yet thou knowest he hast committed a crime. Authorities ask the of the affair, dost thou:

* Silently keep thine oath
* Break thine oath by speaking

Thy friend seeks admittance to thy Spiritual order. Thou art asked to vouch for his purity of Spirit, of which thou art unsure. Dost thou:

* Express thy doubt
* Vouch for him, hoping for his improvement

A local bully pushes for a fight. Dost thou:

* Trounce the rogue
* Decline, knowing that no lasting good will come of it

Thou art a bounty hunter sworn to return an alleged murderer. After his capture, thou believest him to be innocent. Dost thou:

* Surrender thy sizeable bounty for thy belief
* Keep thy oath to return him

Thou dost believe that virtue resides in all people. Thou dost see a rogue steal from thy Lord. Dost thou:

* Call him to justice
* Personally try to sway him back to the path of good

Thy parents wish thee to become an apprentice. Two positions are available. Dost thou:

* Become an assistant to a humble village cobbler
* Become an acolyte in the spiritual order

Thou hast been sent to secure a needed treaty with a distant Lord. Thy host is agreeable to the proposal but insults thy country at dinner. Dost thou:

* Rise and demand an apology
* Bear the slurs

Entrusted to deliver an uncounted purse of gold, thou dost meet a poor beggar. Dost thou:

* Give the beggar a coin, knowing it won't be missed.
* Deliver the gold knowing the trust in thee was well-placed.
