The Color Quiz

I’ve had some questions about the color quiz above, so I thought I’d answer them in one fell swoop. Orbit came up with the idea with the hope *nudge nudge* that people would share their results and spread the word about The Black Prism coming out on August 25th. I helped with the design of the quiz (based on tests prospective drafters in The Black Prism undergo), and I wrote the questions, answers, and brief description of magic in this new world I’ve created. Then Orbit handled the art and the coding–for which I am forever grateful. For the sake of not having this quiz take too long, things are a bit simplified from what you’ll find in the book, but we hope you’ll really enjoy it!

If you’re curious about how things might have turned out if you answered differently, please feel free to take it more than once.

    Really enjoyed the quiz!
    I find it a great way to invite readers to become a part of the world that has been created.
    I’m a Green Drafter.

    Hey! I love the idea of this quiz. I think you did a very good job and got my attention. I never read any of your picks before but I think I just might have to start. I’m a super-violet drafter.

  6. Brenda says:

    LOVE the Night Angel series! Can’t wait for Black Prism! You are a fantastic author. You create a totally believeable world filled with “living, breathing” characters. Thank you so much for the lil bit of escapism. Sometimes that makes a difference when life just isn’t cooperating.

    Oh, I’m Orange by the way. πŸ™‚

    The quiz was awesome (I’m a Yellow); thanks for the newest peek into the world of The Black Prism…I’m so excited–I just can’t wait to read it! πŸ™‚

  8. Dietrich says:

    wish a copy would be shipped out early here in the Philippines. I took awhile to complete the night angel trilogy due to limited stocks.. If I could get a signed copy of The Black Prism that would be nice πŸ˜€

    i think i was super violet something..i forgot πŸ˜€

    Hey Brent,

    Big fan of NAT and avid user of this site. I think the test was a really good way to get people even more interested in The Black Prism. Keep up the fantastic work!

    Sub-red superchromat here. I am guessing there will be further clarification inyour book about what each does and how patrons and the order works so I am really looking forward to my book arriving!

    I do think it is a pity that those of us in Australia have to wait a little longer but do understand that we are soooo far away. Good luck with the launch!

    YA man im a GREEN DRAFTER, also the best part is it states that:

    “The results from your color matching test have also shown that you are one of the elite, a superchromat. The magic you do will almost never fail.”

    hell ya lol can’t wait for that book i expect nothing but amazement !!!

  11. Sarah says:

    WOOO HOOO!!!! I’m so excited about the new book. I pre-ordered it in March. lol Really really want it now!

    I’m a green drafter. πŸ™‚


  12. Jordin says:

    Superviolet Supercromat! I guess I’ll have to read to really understand what that means. Hooked me though. Just found the quiz, and your site, for the first time today from facebook.

  13. J.T. says:

    This was a cool quiz, and I cant wait for the book. I’m trying to discover all the Drafting Colors. So far I’ve found Sub-Red, Yellow, and Blue. But I’m always a Superchromat.

  14. Silvus says:

    I got
    “You are a green drafter

    Green luxin is springy and flexible. The uses are as varied as the drafter is creative: from furniture to projectiles to shields to the throwing arms of war engines. Greens are wild, free. They don’t so much disrespect authority as not even recognize it.

    The results from your color matching test have also shown that you are one of the elite, a superchromat. The magic you do will almost never fail. Satrapies will compete to recruit you, and you will have a wide latitude in what work you choose to do once you finish your studies. You can expect your patron to lavish praise and honors on you. As a monochrome, you will master your color, and only have to defer to bichromes and polychromes and, of course, the nobility and the satraps who support us all.”

  15. Luke says:

    I won’t take the quiz until later because I want to learn everything through the book. I preordered it off Amazon and recieved it today…? The 16th? Even though there’s still more than a week until the release date…? Very very very excited to read it nonetheless!!

  16. kyler says:

    very nice quiz i just can’t get pass superviolet the quiz was just messed up now i really can’t wait for it

  17. Mer says:

    Sub-red superchromat, and got my friends along the different spectrums. All of us posted our results on Facebook, which in turn got more people interested, and more, and more…
    I think we have about 13 people vowing to buy the book now. Yay, publicity!

  18. Marie says:

    Dear Brent,
    We need to talk about this. I’m not sure I like the squealing little fangirl I become when any of your stuff gets mentioned in any context. I manage to keep my geek cool at all sorts of dorky things, but your books… The whole “What Color Is Your Magic” quiz thing posted on Facebook didn’t help matters either. Thanks for outing me to all of my Facebook friends. I squealed. Out loud. And on my Facebook status as I announced to the world I was a Green Superchromat.

    P.S. – If you decide to come East Coast, come to Dragon*Con on Labor Day Weekend one year. I bet many of your East Coast fans will be there!

  19. Josh says:

    Green superchromat!

    It’s funny that it states something about furniture in the explaination, because I deliver furniture here in Minnesota!

    Hells yeah!

    So tell us Brent, whens the next Lightbringer book coming?

  20. Ali says:

    I’m a Green/Ornage Superchromat!

    Kinda cool because I feel it relates to me, but of course, not perfectly. I especially like the fact that green was used most by our boy wonder, Kip. I am wild, yet easy to tame, and I am against the limitations that society puts on us. Of course, I still recognize and follow the rules. Still, I wish I was a polychrome. I’ve only gotten Green and Orange results.

    Anyways, can’t wait for the next book! I have probably thought out 20 possibilities of how the series will play in the time it took me to type this reply! (7 min [I’m a slow typer])

  21. Pete says:

    Green superchromat here. I think if it went all the way I definitely would be a green/red bichrome superchromat, but such is life. I have the temper and the dislike of authority to back that up. Keep on with the amazing work, Mr. Weeks!

  22. Anna says:

    Love The Black Prism, can’t wait for the next Lightbringer book! It was AWESOME, as was the Night Angel Trilogy (waiting for a follow up!)
    I’m a superviolet drafter as well as a superchromat πŸ˜€

  23. Mike says:

    Fun. Im a Subred Superchromat.

  24. Selena says:

    Sweet, I’m a Superviolet Superchromat. Is there any way be a bi- or poly- chrome?

  25. Sanshi says:

    I just have end reading the book. It’s even better than the NIght Angel trilogy if I may say that πŸ™‚ Can’t wait till the next part will be realesed.

    I also take the quiz, twice cause in almost all cases I just couldn’t decide what to pick and I’m superviolet and subred superchromat XD It’s a bit weird as it’s on two different ends of the scale, but well πŸ˜› If there would be some female Prism, maybe I would be one of them πŸ˜‰

  26. Joshua says:

    I’ve reaqd the Night Angel Trilogy about 10 times, and it still hasn’t gotten old πŸ™‚
    Black Prism sounds awesome, can’t wait to get it
    I took the test, and I’m a Superviolet Drafter, hoping for some explanation as to what that is πŸ˜‰

  27. AninOnin says:

    How do you move the tiles for the quiz? I got orange, but I wasn’t able to move them Dx

  28. zeWulf says:

    I’m a normal vision Blue drafter.

  29. Josh C says:
