  • At the town of Eianrod, young nobles from Cairhien find Rand and report the Shaido attacking the city. Rand says he will be there with the Aiel in seven days. (TFoH,Ch30)
  • Back in his rooms, Rand finds Aviendha naked. She Travels to the opposite side of the world and he follows. He saves her from freezing and they make love. (TFoH,Ch31)
  • Rand discovers that they are in Seanchan. They return through the gateway with half a spear as a souvenir. Rand orders Asmodean to teach him invisibility and avoiding a woman's channeling. (TFoH,Ch32)



Field of Merrilor#

  • Rand arrives at the Field of Merrilor with Min and the Borderlands army. (ToM,Ch56, ToM,Epilogue)
  • The night before the meeting at the Field of Merrilor, Rand dreams of Mierin. (ToM,Epilogue)
  • After the dream awakens him, Rand visits with Perrin and Perrin recounts the story of the victory of Emond's Field. They investigate the disturbance in Elayne's camp and learn of the attack on Caemlyn. (AMoL,Ch1)
  • Rand writes a letter to Elayne intended to anger her into staying at the Field of Merrilor. (AMoL,Ch2)
  • Rand works on his document for tomorrow. Since Dragonmount, he no longer gets sick seizing saidin. He can feel that the three women nearby are up to something. He opens the tent flap to find Aviendha and the Maidens nearby begin shouting insults. She says that she, Min and Elayne are all now first-sisters. He says he does not want them to experience his pain but Aviendha says they demand it. She is now a Wise One. Rand wanted to get some sleep tonight but it looks like that will not happen. He takes her into the tent as the Maidens shout louder. (AMoL,Ch3)
  • Rand is pulled into Moridin's dreamshard. Rand calls him Elan. Moridin tells Rand that Lanfear is now Cyndane. Moridin continues to taunt Rand, but Rand says he is finished with Moridin. It is now between him and the Dark One. He exercises his will and sunlight comes through the clouds. Moridin thinks it is a trick like he used on Weiramon. Rand exerts his will more. The clouds disappear and the ground blooms with growth. Moridin recoils in shock then disappears. Rand then lets the transformation go and returns to his body for sleep.(AMoL,Ch4)
  • Rand wakes up, opens his tent flaps and sees Katerin guarding his tent. He asks her if his clerks have returned from Tear and when she responds that they have, he tells her to send word to the other rulers that he'll meet them in one hour. She then leaves to relay his command. (AMoL,Ch5)
  • Rand turns around to find Aviendha standing naked in the tent. He takes the nearby barrel of water and turns it into a warm, soapy shower for them both and then rinses them both off. She tells him that she will ask a boon of him today. (AMoL,Ch5)
  • Rand introduces the Dragon's Peace and there is much discussion among all of the leaders. The other leaders focus on the Dragon's Peace while Egwene and Rand continue to talk about the seals. (AMoL,Ch5)
  • Rand agrees to 1) get the Seanchan to sign the Dragon's Peace or the document is void, 2) Aviendha's request to include the Aiel and 3) Perrin's idea of making the Aiel the enforcers of the peace and mediators of disputes. (AMoL,Ch6)
  • Rand walks out of the tent, into the new grove, and disappears. (AMoL,Ch7)
  • Rand is in Elayne's tent, looking at the battle maps on a table. He is impressed with the plans. He feels a chill and knows a woman is channeling nearby. He looks up and sees Elayne standing in the tent doorway. His unexpected presence startled her. He kneels before her and touches her belly, telling her he didn't know about her being pregnant until the night before the meeting. They then talk about tactics for a few hours and then about his experience on top of Dragonmount. He explains that he had been too caught up in strength that he almost lost the ability to care and that for him to win, he must care. Her tea goes bad and he holds it for a moment and it tastes great again. He explains that the Pattern is balance, so with the Dark One doing bad things, the Pattern works through him to do good things. Rand then gives Elayne a Seed. (AMoL,Ch9)
