In the high brown waste between the lands inhabited by civilized men and the Walls of the World live three brothers. When their family home is destroyed by an object that falls from the sky, they are tasked with returning the thing to its maker. For in the side of it are etched the words:
"Please Return to Grand Wizard Suleiman Ibn Bint, Thaumaturge Royal. Deposit payable on return."
