Not wacky enough!


"Mesaana, please give us, in detail, you're plan for capturing the Dragon and forcing him to swear to the Shadow. and it must be under budget."


It's for a game we're playing at DragonCon.

If you want wacky, I take it we can dispense with obvious ones like "What first attracted you to the job" or "what do you think you could bring to the role." How about:

If you had to have a pet to reinforce your evil credentials, what would you go for? Why?

Does my bum look big in this?

Do you consider genocide a goal in your life, or merely a means to an end?

Are you attached to your humanity, or do you consider it an optional extra?

Where do you see yourself in ten years time? Trapped in the Bore? Immortal God-King of the Universe? Or something else?

Do you consider turning your enemies to the Shadow to be an important goal? How would you go about turning them?

Where would you build your evil lair? How would you decorate it?

As you are no doubt aware, the Shadow feels its market penetration of the evil accessories market is poor. How would you go about developing it? What products would you introduce? What is your projected turnover for the first year?

Do you think I should grow a beard?

Who's cuter, Gawyn or Galad?

We're thinknig of rebranding ourselves. What sort of colour scheme would you like to see from the new Shadow? What about a new logo?

Can you give us an example of a saviour you faced in your previous job, and how you went about defeating him?

How do you think you would manage with raising a family and bringing the Apocalypse closer?

Something where the answer itself is going to be wacky.

Just imagine the answers to more mundane questions:

Are you a team player?

Are you applying for other jobs?

What do co-workers say about you? What irritates you about co-workers?

Have you ever had to fire anyone? How did you feel about that?

What is your typical way of dealing with conflict? Give me an example.

Tell me about a time when you had to use your presentation skills to influence someone's opinion.



How would you feel about being associated with various loony theories?  What do you feel would be the appropriate response to said theories?

What is the best way to enhance the Shadow's PR without contradicting its goals and motto? Remember that the Dark One does not believe in free ice cream.

Do you like your rats broken in half or charred crispy?

Destroying the universe: great idea or greatest idea?

Do you mind being spontaneously bursting into flame?

Does enslaving peoples minds conflict with a prior bad experience?

Will you occasionally watch bad television?

Does your current psycholigist resist your evil influences?

Will football season get in the way of the position you are applying for?

Will you work overtime?

Are you afraid of the mentally challenged?

Why did the Mad Hatter move to Cincinatti?
