    Six Genies Arrive At Your Location...

    And one of them offers you wishes from the other five. You just have to pick which ones to prioritize.

    The link describes what the wishes are, though not in detail. That's what makes this test especially interesting--you don't know exactly what you're going to get. I'll give you a hint, though that the two lowest ones are gonna be detrimental in some way.

    Put your choices in a spoiler, and I'll rep PM you the benefits and drawbacks of your selections. Happy dreaming!

    Ooh, conjecture games. I like those.

    Spoiler: The smartest choice
    would be to decline and to take the LUCK box, probably. I'm assuming it won't entail anything with bad luck, because that would be just rude and deceptive.


    Spoiler: The curious choice
    would be to rate the genies as follows (from best to worst):
    LUCK
    WEALTH
    POWER
    IMMORTALITY
    LOVE

    Actually I do believe IMMORTALITY is by far the worst, but since "the loser might pull something funny", I think it's best not to gamble with that. Eternal immortality would be horrific. Being afflicted with eternal misfortune in romantic matters, on the other hand – who cares!

    Spoiler: .

    Luck
    Immortality
    Love
    Wealth
    Power

    I'd be able to make better decisions if you showed me the formula for how these affect gameplay. Sometimes high luck is barely a nudge on anything. But none of the others look like they will affect my Dex rolls at all.

    Well, this doesn't purport to tell you anything about yourself, just let you entertain a fun hypothetical. Though it'd be interesting to see which personalities pick which more often. I'm already noticing that the people here tend to take luck a lot.
