In an effort to provide important public service information to our loyal readers, your humble Mandarin would like to report that the Doomsday Clock will be moved tomorrow by the world’s top scientists.
The clock is very large and will require quite a few people to actually move it to its new location on the third floor next to the vending machines.
During the move, access to the clock will be disrupted. We feel that while this disruption will be annoying, it will be short-lived.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this exciting time of change and renovation.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
