"A stone meteorite fell into one of the villages of the Tara district. The fall was accompanied by detonations, while the sky was clear. It killed a pig. It was carried off by a vagabond sorcerer, some of whom were still existing at that time."
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. That really "conjures up" some great images. I can see him camped off in the woods enjoying suckling pig roasted over an open fire while contemplating his other new acquisition.
