Narras is said to have been insane, and invented the game of Hangman to encourage literacy amongst his subjects. His idea of hangman, however, involved hanging actual people in the gallows. While one person guessed the word, the one in the gallows would come increasingly closer to death. If the word was not guessed in time, the victim would be hanged and killed. His gallows can still be found in front of the Civic Office of West Ardougne today.
It is unknown when he died, but he was succeeded by his son Ulthas.

"This word-guessing game was invented by Mad King Narras of Ardougne in order to encourage literacy among his subjects. Today it is played with an effigy rather than a real person, and it makes an amusing distraction for one or more players."
