Gladiator Part 2
Fenix decided he would become a gladiator even though he had no clue how to fight. He patiently waited until the gladiator fights were over so he could go to the emperor's palace. When he started walking there it was sunset. By the time he arrived it was nighttime. He was only a few inches into the palace before a guard stopped him.
"Why are you here?" the guard questioned.
"I'm going to become a gladiator," Fenix replied.
After that, the guard let him in. He finally found the main room after walking through a maze of halls.
"Why are you here, scrawny peasant?" the emperor boomed.
"I w-want to become a gladiator," Fenix said quivering in the emperor's presence.
"Well then take your coins and get started," the emperor said as he tossed Fenix a bag of coins.
Fenix grabbed the coins and hastily walked out of the palace. He didn't sleep fearing someone would steal his coins. Once it was morning he went shopping for gear. He bought a steel broadsword and some cheap chain mail. He still had about a thousand coins left over so he bought a small 3 room, 1 floor house. He also bought food and normal clothes. Since he hadn't rested he plopped down on the bed, exhausted and fell asleep. His last thought before sleep was I better train hard because my first fight is in 5 days and it is to the death.

This is an official telegram composed by the director of magic to Loftegen 2 meant for Lady Zaharra
Well m'lady I couldn't help overhear you talking about people having magic inside them. We have eyes on people in Sinyal who have magic inside them to. I hope you will understand the difference between magic being inside of people and people learning and using magic. We can let these people come talk to you, if you would like.
We Hycronesians believe education is one of the most important pillars of society, and that the government should always publicly fund it.
Now, you can consider two things, depending on your form of government:
If your nation is democratic:
If the people arent even capable of reading or doing basic tasks/things that are learnt in school, how are they supposed to distinguish good and evil? How are they supposed to know the government is doing the right thing for them, and that they are not supposed to rebel?
If your nation is a dictatorship:
Education is power, the people dont need to learn the truth, they have to learn what the government considers as the truth, you can use schools to create a new generation of puppets that will do everything you want. Fun, right?

Fluffiness believes that education should be one of the most important priority of a nation. To give people a chance to live a fulfilling life, they have to know the possibilities they have, and they must have a chance to achieve this. Knowing history, science, arts... allows people to better analyze current events and form better opinions.
