Virtue Quiz - Nwod - Quiz

This quiz is based off of material found in one of the Vampire: The Requiem supplement books. Offhand, I believe it is the Ordo Dracul book. Designed for New World of Darkness. It is ideal for helping figure your character's Virtue. (There is another for Vice. )


You May Get

Faith

Those with Faith know that the universe is not random, meaningless chaos, but ordered by a higher power. No matter how horrifying the world might be, everything has its place in the plan and ultimately serves that purpose. It might involve belief in a grand unified theory whereby the seeming randomness of the universe is ultimately an expression of mathematical precision. Or it might be a view that everything is one and that even evil is indistinguishable from good when all discriminating illusions are overcome.Variations: Belief, conviction, humility, loyalty.

Hope

Being hopeful means believing that evil and misfortune cannot prevail, no matter how grim things become. Not only do the hopeful believe in the ultimate triumphof morality and decency over malevolence, they maintain steadfast belief in a greater sense of cosmic justice-whether it's Karma or the idea of an all-knowing, all-seeing God who waits to punish the wicked. All will turn out right in the end, and the hopeful mean to be around when it happens.Variations: Optimism, dreamy, visionistic.

Justice

Wrongs cannot go unpunished. This is the central tenet of the just, who believe that protecting the innocent and confronting inequity is the responsibility of every decent person, even in the face of great danger. The just believe that evil cannot prosper so long as one good person strives to do what is right, regardless of the consequences.Variations: Condemnatory, Righteousness, Honor.

Fortitude

A person's ideals are meaningless unless they're tested. When it seems as though the entire world is arrayed against him because of his beliefs, a person possessing strong fortitude weathers the storm and emerges with his convictions intact. Fortitude is about standing up for one's beliefs and holding the course no matter how tempting it may be to relent or giving up. By staying the course -- regardless of the cost -- he proves the worth of his ideals.Variations: Courage, integrity, mettle.

Charity

True charity comes from sharing gifts with others, be it money or possessions, or simply giving time to help another in need. A charitable character is guided by their compassion to share what she has in order to improve the plight of those around them. Charitable individuals are guided by the principle of treating others as they would be treated themselves. By sharing and taking on the role of the charity, they hope to cultivate goodwill in others, and the gifts they give will eventually return to them in their hour of need.Variations: Compassion, mercy, sacrifice.

Prudence

The Virtue of Prudence places wisdom and restraint above rash action and thoughtless behavior. One maintains integrity and principles by moderating actions and avoiding unnecesary risks. While that means a prudent person might never take big gambles that bring huge rewards, neither is their life ruined by a bad roll of dice. By choosing wisely and avoiding the easy road, they prosper slowly but surely.Variations: Patience, Vigilance.

Temperance

Moderation in all things is the secret to happiness, so says the doctrine of temperance. It's all about balance. Everything has its place in a person's life, from anger to forgiveness, lust to chastity. The temperate do not believe in denying their urges, as none of it is unnatural or unholy. The trouble comes when things are taken to excess, whether it's a noble or base impulse. Too much righteousness can be just as bad as too much wickedness.Variations: Chastity, even-temperament, frugality.
