Once upon a time, there was a wise Sorcerer-Prophet, who lorded it over his followers and judged their cases on his own. One day, he granted audience to a condemned criminal who pleaded for mercy to escape his own execution tomorrow:

“By Hashut’s hoof. Have mercy upon me! It was poverty alone that made me steal that loaf of bread. Change my punishment and I will serve you fully for the rest of my life,” begged the condemned, on his knees.

“Very well, so be it,” replied the Sorcerer-Prophet and rose from his throne.

“You are magnificient in your wisdom, o lord!” praised the condemned.

“Indeed. Execution to be carried out in advance,” declared the Sorcerer-Prophet and chopped off the condemned criminal’s head on the spot. For such is the fate of those testing the patience of their superiors.
