During the first half of the seventeenth century GUE
a certain individual known as The Fool was turned to stone by Morphius
. In this state, he
was converted into a monument known as the Fool's Memorial
stood southwest of the subterranean Shanbar
Some documents report that he was freed from his state of petrification
by the unknown
who eventually conquered Morphius, who
used a Freedom Spell in 1647 GUE.
then on, this idiot, wearing the typical fool's hat decked with bells,
followed the Sweepstakes Winner everywhere he went. He was stupid, but
agile. Thus realizing that he always did the wrong thing in any given
situation, the Sweepstakes Winner used him porfitably over and
over again as puzzle fodder to expose traps and incorrect solutions.
The Sweepstakes Winner, quickly discovering that the loud bells
constantly gave his position away, sliced them off. Eventually the Fool
was restoned by Morphius vultures. It is evidently supposed that The
Fool was restored to flesh again following the defeat of Morphius.
