King Ahaz accused my Master—the Seer of Tira-Nor, AlBear the Wise, the Merciful, Maker of Miracles and Potentate Secundi Propositum, etc—of high treason. King Ahaz said AlBear was to blame for the drought that ruined the city. He told everyone that my Master had bewitched the sun, that rain would not come again until the Seer gave the word. He called him, “AlBear the Accursed” and told the mice of Tira-Nor that he was using his unearthly powers to dry up the heavens, crack the earth, wither the berries of the Dark Forest, and throttle the neck of the White River. He even called my Master a foul prophet and tool of the ancient God, ElShua. King Ahaz was right.
