No.

No, you do not want to die. Sure, you had joined the on-stage ritual in the hopes that you could somehow survive a bit longer, but the appearance of the offering makes things abundantly clear: you are meant to face the offering – this naked, young, oil-soaked man – in a combat to the death. The other alumni are arrayed in a triskelion around you, Ajax and Achitophel look up with thirsty eyes, and the offering approaches you tentatively, holding the silver shiv in his right hand. He looks afraid, yet also dazed – you can’t quite tell if he’s been drugged, but you are certain that he’s looking to survive this encounter. So, the question remains: are you willing to kill this youth to survive, or will you attempt to run even now?

A) Live and let die.

B) Run.
