! __Rand__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor] leads the [Emond's Field|Emonds Field] folk downstairs and introduces them to [Loial]. He tells them he has been gone from the %%ot [stedding|Steddings]%% over three years. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] enters followed by [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] still has the [Ruby Dagger], but he is partly cleansed. [Loial] greets [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] with, "the %%ot [stedding|Steddings]%% offers sanctuary to the Servants of the Light." She thanks him but tells him to take care as there are perhaps twenty [Aes Sedai] in [Caemlyn], all but she of the [Red Ajah].[1] [Rand|Rand alThor] tells [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] that [Loial] is coming with them. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] leaves to keep watch. [Loial] mentions %%red [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan]%%, so [Rand|Rand alThor] tells her of his adventure at the palace. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] says they met [TuathaAn] and [Whitecloaks]. [Loial] met some [TuathaAn]. He has a [Talent|Weaves] for tree singing and taught them his songs, but the trees would not listen to humans. He is from [Stedding Shangtai]. He says a man came about twenty years ago. He was near death but quickly got well in the %%ot [stedding|Steddings]%%, then left without a word.[2] He planned to carry a message to [Tar Valon] that the [Dark One|ShaiTan] intents to blind the [Eye of the World].[3] Then [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] tells [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] the [TuathaAn]' story of the [Aiel] and the [Eye of the World]. The boys then tell her of their dreams of [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] and the [Eye of the World]. [Loial] says all three are %%ot [ta'veren|Wheel of Time]%%. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] says the [Forsaken] do not have a tenth the power of the [Dark One|ShaiTan] naming several of them - [Aginor], [Lanfear], [Balthamel], [Demandred] and [Ishamael].[4] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] decides that they must go to the [Green Man|Someshta] to warn him. She asks if [Loial] can guide them through the [Ways] to [Fal Dara], [Mafal Dadaranell|Fal Dara]. [Loial] says they will all die.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] The [Ogier] offered sanctuary to male [Aes Sedai] and the [Red Ajah] believe this extended the [Breaking] making it worse. ([TEotW,Ch43]) This statement also seems to conflict with [Rand|Rand alThor]'s observation of [Warder] with [Logain|Logain Ablar]. ([TEotW,Ch39]) At [signings|Guide], Jordan explained this. A mixed group of [Aes Sedai] and their [Warder] paraded [Logain|Logain Ablar] into the city. After they reached the [Royal Palace], the [Red Ajah] sisters were invited to stay at the palace and the rest camped outside the city. By the time [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] arrived there were only [Red|Red Ajah] sisters left in the city.\\
[#2] This man was [Jain Farstrider|Jain Charin]. See also [Noal Charin].\\
[#3] What became of the man and his message? According to the [The Eye of the World] Glossary, he disappeared after visiting the [Blight] in NE 981. The most probable scenario is that [Loial]'s timing is a bit off. He returned from the [Blight], went to [Stedding Shangtai], then disappeared for good.\\
[#4] This is the first mention of [Lanfear], [Balthamel] and [Demandred].\\
