    Explanation of Compete Action

    "Compete" is an action that every student of Academagia knows. Students with no skill in Compete, students with no skills ANYWHERE, can still Compete and earn pity points, at the very least. Lately, all I've been able to imagine is a student marching around campus and whispering (not yelling, that requires Voice) "Compete, compete, compete, compete," for an entire timeslot, and Orso Orsi jumping out of the bushes and announcing "PITIABLE STUDENT I AWARD THEE 3 PITY POINTS FOR THY LOVE OF SCHOOL AND COLLEGE," and then running away from his responsibilities. I'm not sure how else Compete would work for an unskilled student, because even spending an afternoon making a macaroni picture of their school badge would require at least a skill in cooking or in art. What are these students doing? Meditating? And those who meditate the best receive double points for not fidgeting or whatever? It'd explain the "Insight" requirement, but that doesn't seem befitting of Merit at all. I find it hard to believe that a prestigious school such as Academagia even possesses such a thing as "pity", but how else would zero-skill small-attribute students gain ANY sort of Merit just for trying? I need help. What is Compete?
