The Wizard's Words
A silent old man appears in a quiet, simple land in the mountains. The people care for him and soon learn that he has knowledge of herbs and healing. He stays with them for many years as their silent healer, never uttering a word — until one day, he stands on a table in the market square and begins to speak. He warns the villagers: a power-hungry wizard is expanding his domain in this direction. Life will be very different if this wizard takes over the land. But fear not, he tells them, for he is also a powerful wizard and is dedicated to protecting them all. However, he surprises the entire village with his means of preparing to meet the warring wizard.
