! __Moiraine__ POV

The [Accepted] scramble back to their rooms to prepare to leave the [White Tower] on %%amyrlin [Tamra|Tamra Ospenya]'s%% orders. Besides [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Siuan|Siuan Sanche], there are [Meidani], [Brendas], [Katerine Alruddin], [Carlinya], [Alanna|Alanna Mosvani], [Pritalle|Pritalle Nerbaijan], [Edesina|Edesina Azzedin], [Temaile|Temaile Kinderode], [Desandre], [Coladara|coladara] and [Atuan|atuan].[1] They all head to the West Stable where grooms and [Tower Guards|White Tower] have saddled horses waiting.[2] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] was sent to %%blue [Merean|Merean Redhill]%% for jumping her horse, [Arrow], over fences

The first group of [Accepted] head to the [Sunset Gate|White Tower]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]'s party is led by a tall, grizzled bannerman named [Steler].[3] They leave the [White Tower] through the [Sunset Gate|White Tower] and head southwest to the [Alindaer Gate|Tar Valon], the most southerly of the three western gates of [Tar Valon]. [Tar Valon] is a melting pot of ethnicities. Much of the city was [Ogier] built. They pass an inn called [The Blue Cat] and the [Great Fish Market]. Outside of [Tar Valon] they pass through the village of [Alindaer] and head south. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] is disappointed that they do not head more west toward [Dragonmount]. At the first camp two miles downriver [Sarene|Sarene Nemdahl] is already collecting names. [Ellid|Ellid Abareim] is the only Accepted more beautiful than Sarene. They ride to the next camp another mile south and begin collecting names.
