Trahearne and an ettin want take some classes at the University of Tyria. They meet with the counselor and are told they need to take courses in math, science, and logic. They don’t know what the logic course is about. The counselor says they should speak with the professor to find out more. Trahearne has to go back to fort trinity and clean the toilets so the ettin will go find out what about logic and tell Trahearne later.

The ettin asks, “Professor, what is logic?”

The professor says “Let me put it this way, do you have a pencil?”

Ettin answers: “Yes, I do.”

the professor says, “well if you have a pencil then logically you know how to write. If you know how to write then logically you went to school.”

Ettin: “Wow that’s right, I went to ettin school!”

Professor: “Now you are here at our university and wanting to take courses, so logically you are self confidence and looking to forward to a better life.”

Ettin: “ Wow professor, thanks for explaining logic.”

The next day Trahearne asked the ettin about logic and the ettin says “ let me put it this way, do you have a pencil?”

Trahearn says “No I don’t.”

Ettin: “ Well then, logically you are a stupid insecure coward who won’t amount to anything special.”
