What exactly is this Renaissance Faire Purity Test thing all about anyway?
How did the test come about anyway?
Why is my score so high? I've been working faire for 245 years and I'm still listed as a 'dane.
The real question is this: Do you ever leave the booth and wander around the faire? Just because you work there doesn't mean jack regarding your score. I know of people in corporate supervisorial positions that have no clue about is going on around them. Live a little and enjoy faire instead of treating it like another job -- faire is an escape from real life and a place to become someone you normally can't.
Why is my score so low? I feel like such a geek.
Perhaps you should take a bow instead of hiding your head. You may have discovered the zen of the Renaissance Faire circuit and certainly know how to have a good time. You could find that people may admire your knowledge and experiences more than you originally thought. Besides, you're in great company!
Why is the test so biased towards people who live unchristian like lives, have children, drink alcohol, are married or aren't professionally involved with "the show."
It's not. This test is a general test meant to include as many common activities as possible and not meant to single out any particular group of people. I can't answer every single one of the questions, and anyone who can is either a liar or in need of a life.
I want a lower score and I'll whine until I get my way. Do you ever plan on creating another version of the test for people who can't answer all the questions so they can get a lower score?
Is there any Renaissance Faire Purity Test merchandise available?
Why yes, there is! I've set up a virtual shop on CafePress with some items on it The items change from time to time, so check back every now and then. To get to the store simply click here. Do you get any score bonuses for helping support my faire habit? No, but you do get my eternal gratitude and some really cool things for next to nothing.
Where can I send constructive comments or question ideas?
email The White Dragon to let him know what you thought of the test. He reads all the email and is always looking for more ideas for questions to add. I'm sure he'd love to hear from you, be it about the test or faire in general.
Where can I send hate mail, mail bombs, gripes or whines?
email firstname.lastname@example.org and then go pound sand up your ass. Better yet, let me.
Do you really get hate mail about this test?
Yes, actually I did, especially before I put that annoying disclaimer up. People seriously took offense to their scores and would bitch and moan about how biased and stupid the test was. Those emails went straight to the little trash can.
