Who knows anything about the Dandoorian Meteor? I sure don't, but orders came down that I've gotta write about it. Never mind that I wanted to write the article for the Downright Crazy Clock-Maker's Association, no no, Dandoorian Meteor they said. I mean, I hardly studied the topic during my time at the Westforth Historical Investigators' College — why not give it to someone who actually knows something about astronomy? Sheesh.
Ahem. Anyway. The main thing you need to know about the Dandoorian Meteor is that it was a meteor that landed in Dandooria. In 1292. It is widely believed that the meteor was summoned by the infamous Witch of Overdandooria who wished to avenge some wrongdoing by the people of that area against her. Unfortunately in doing so she wiped out all the records of what that wrongdoing might have been, and indeed herself. Popular depictions of the meteor show her riding down on top of it as it fell through the sky.
Let's see … fell in Dandooria, some bullshit about a witch, what else … oh, right, what happened next. The Dandoorian Meteor significantly affected the geology, flora, fauna, and demographics of the region, largely in that there wasn't much of any of them after it struck. Today Dandooria is an undemarcated subregion of Westforth County. Which is probably why they wanted me to write about it. As if studying there means you know anything about the place.
