|Macros the Black is a very manipulative person. Which of the following people did he NOT manipulate in the book "Magician"?|
None of the above. Macros manipulated Pug's life in many ways including influencing his training on Kelewan. Tomas' life was influenced by Macros through the Dragon Armour, and on Sorcerer's Isle, Macros manipulated Pug into tripping so that Kulgan's ankle would get injured and he would have leave to give Kulgan his staff.
|Which of the following is not one of Pug's own children?|
Gamina. Gamina is his adopted daughter. Magnus and Caleb are the sons of Pug's second wife Miranda and William is the son of Pug's first wife Katala.
|Talwin Hawkins can sense magic being performed.|
t. Like Jimmy the Hand and Pug's non-magical son Caleb, Tal can sense when magic is being performed around him. Jimmy found this an especially useful talent and referred to it as his 'bump of trouble.'
|Of what culture is that funny little gambler, Nakor?|
Isalani. He often has to remind people that he is not Keshian, though his land is part of the Confederacy.
|By the end of the book, "Flight of the Nighthawks", how many grandchildren does Pug seemed to have found, including adopted ones? (including any who have died)|

Sidi. When we next meet Sidi in "Talon of the Silver Hawk", he uses the name Leso Varen.
|Since Tal joined the Conclave of Shadows, he learned many interesting things, including how to cheat at cards. In one memorable game of four-handed poker which managed to disintegrate in to a cheating contest with Nakor, Kasper and Amafi, how many extra cards and what type were in the deck when they finally stopped?|
3 kings and 2 sevens. All of their hands had become more and more outrageous as more wine was consumed. Nakor, Kaspar and Amafi are skilled cheaters so Tal's skills were continually sharpened by playing with them.
|Pug has been getting letters sent to him by his past self.|
f. It is Pug's future self that is sending letter's back in time with instructions. The first one he got told him to tell Jimmy to tell Nakor that there is no magic, though Pug didn't know that it would be Nakor Jimmy would give that message to. By the end of "Flight of the Nighthawks", only Pug and Nakor know of these messages.
