Cafkoy's death was his own fault, yet blame must always be thrown, and so it landed on the Eallans. The Clown College is a major aggressor in this war despite being looked down on by both the Eallans and the Bard College. They often pull large scale pranks on the Draconians of Ealla to try and declare a "war" but it is rarely noticed as more than a joke.
The Really Funny Fit
One thing the Clown College is known for is its connection to the Really Funny Fit
The Really Funny Fit is a tool utilized by some of the best graduates of the Clown College, like Henroik D Qlown or Sirlini Glirdog. It causes anyone to laugh if worn by someone who believes themselves to be funny.
Many graduates and students of the Clown College take offense at being called "less talented" than those of the Bard College proper. What they instead call themselves is "differently talented" which is to say that their talents differ both from what the other students of the Bard College have and what the professors are looking for.
The Clown College does not have too many alumni who have made themselves incredibly famous, but they have some well-known names.
- Henroik D Qlown
- Sylvirlouc Zamrarano
- Sirlini Glirdog
- Kriplop of the Abandoned Monsters
- Sengred Dilosz
The Clown College teaches a set series of jokes and gags, all done originally by Cafkoy Lown. This has

caused outrage among some students, who want to freely express themselves, but the institute has remained firm in its beliefs.
It is a 6 year school where they teach the basics of juggling, basic musical training, fitting inside carriages that are too small, balloon work, and much much more.
There is also a subcategory for Mimes. Mime School is not nearly as in-depth, and only takes 5 years. This is partially because the people in charge do not care for Mimes.
There have been many dropouts from Clown College, all for various reasons. Be it dislike of the long school time, the standard curriculum with little freedom, or towards the mistreatment of Mimes.
Despite this, the Clown College has refused to acknowledge that they have ever done any wrong doing. In response, the headmaster will always simply laugh. One headmaster even stood on the roof of the college during a protest and did a funny little dance. Another dropped down a large bag of balloon animals, one for each protester.
The Success Stories
To combat protesters, the Clown College will talk of its success stories. People like Sirlini "the Comedian" Glirdog, who led Ealla, or Henroik D Qlown who brought joy to many through his antics.
What they will not teach is that all of these figures have denounced the Clown College during their lives. One famed alumni, Sylvirlouc Zamrarano, never actually graduated. He dropped out, but after his achievements, was given an honorary diploma.
