Man, now you guys have me wondering if Throm even knew he was in a contest at all! He and his buddy were just passing through town, asked for directions to the nearest Burger King or whatever and took a wrong turn. There really should be an "Adventures of Throm" series. Where he stumbles through other gamebooks.
Did anyone else think he was wearing shades in that illustration the first time they saw it? Dang, he was so cool, anachronisms be damned!
This is an interesting discussion. I always assumed the Dwarf Trialmaster realised the player was the superior contestant and so didn't make Throm solve the anagrams. I think the Ninja (and potentially the player) were the only contestants to realise you couldn't get through the dungeon through brute force. I also think the Ninja deserved to win - I've always thought he was cool.

I would throw the Elf-woman in there too but yes I agree I also kind of wanted to see the ninja win. Even though he did miss a couple of the gems (maybe he was counting on you to get them and then kill you?), that move he made about instructing the contestants to leave their weapons was badass.
