If I had to pick I'd say positive but I'd honestly rather have neither.

Positive would certainly build on my self-confidence, but I'd choose negative because I can't change if people don't tell me what I'm doing wrong, and I'm always worried people aren't telling me what I'm doing wrong... frown

Well hearing those positive thoughts just sounds lovely!

Also it would be amazing on dates.

Man, that Peter. Such a beautiful blue beard...

I'd go with positive. I'm already self-critical enough, I'm not sure I want he affirmation of others when it comes to my doubt.

I choose negative. I fear I would never hear anything if I went positive.

I'd go positive.  It would help me be more upbeat to help others also be upbeat.

Only hearing the positive, that way if its all silent you know there could be negative.

Well, I think I'll agree with those who say they'd rather hear nothing at all but if a choice has to be made, then positive, I suppose...

New day, new question!

Wizard or sorcerer?

I don't know the difference but still feel the answer is clearly sorcerer.

That was fun, but I don't want to keep all the fun for myself. Someone else can ask the questions next week. :)

At least in DnD a wizard is someone who studies to learn magic but the sorcerer innately is able to cast spells.  So the wizard over time will know more spells but the sorcerer is able to cast a limited set of spells capped only by their what their level allows.   Sorcerer's are thought to be able to innately cast spells because they have some dragon ancestors.  

Having said all that I'd go sorcerer

Based on DnD 4th Edition, Sorcerer. I'm actually playing one in an ongoing forum-based game right now and she's super-fun (though this isn't entirely down to her class...that just helps) :D. Random crazy magic for the fun!

#5 Wizard, especially since I'm now immortal and have time to gather spells and components from my flying sky-castle.

#6 Since I'd fill my castle with servants, I'd probably go positive. A happy workforce is a hard-working workforce.

#7 I believe I special ordered the fish.

If I'm RPing, probably the Dark Side...because lightning! And throwing people off cliffs and stuff >:). And those Lightsiders can get pretty dark in their own way, messing with people's heads and stuff. So nurrh :P.

In the KOTR games I never went any path other than Lightside, but if it were real and I had a choice I would pick the Han Solo theory

100 years old, wizard, light-side, fact.  Along with the floating castle and a supply of burgers, I should be good to go as I raind death down on my enemies in the form of fireballs.  Really, its the best spell ever.  Takes out pesky evil-infested villages and keeps you warm at night.

I declare a wizzard battle! Your puny fireballs are no match for the sheer power of my lightning!

I once left my khakis in my jeans and couldn't open my car, but khakis have never been in my genes.

So I prefer Jeans. i won't let one incident ruin them for me.

Read my earlier post about point-blank fireballs.  Or consider it an attempt to get them to defeat themselves with their own lightning bolt.

As for khakis or jeans, I prefer jeans.  Better color choices.

Can't speak for Donner, but the D&D fireball spell (and it's associated alternates) is notorious (at least in our games) for being used in a way that results in damage to the party. Basically, people don't understand just how much volume it actually takes up when they cast it in a small hallway... cool

I had a mage in White Wolf who's favorite spell was fireball.  Jnfortunately, most of the times he was able to cast it, it would only be effective at point blank.  So he also cast protective spells on himself first.  The end result was usually that he was almost dead, but the enemies were defeated.
