! __Egwene__ POV

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] prepares to enter %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%% for the first time without the [twisted ring]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Aviendha] are with her. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] has been reading a fifty-three year old book, ''A Journey to [Tarabon]'' by [Eurian Romavni]. It is the only book she found with good drawings of [Tanchico]. She was terribly frightened by what [Rand|Rand alThor] did to destroy the [Shadowspawn]. She studies a map of [Tanchico] showing the three peninsulas and the [Illuminators|Guild of Illuminators]'s chapter house. [Aviendha] asks if anyone else could use the [twisted ring]. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] says yes, but explains the dangers of %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%. They all agree to wake her in an hour. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] thinks she is the first [Dreamer|TelAranRhiod] in five hundred years, since [Corianin Nedeal]. She has the list of stolen %%ot [ter'angreal|Angreal]%% and recalls that thirteen of them were studied by [Corianin Nedeal]. They recovered two from [Amico|Amico Nagoyin] and [Joiya|Joiya Byir], an [iron disc] and an [amber plaque]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] tried them and they both took her to %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] worries about running into [Liandrin] or [Rianna|Rianna Andomeran] or [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry] or [Jeaine|Jeaine Caide]. She wants to learn where [Mazrim Taim] is or to speak to [Siuan|Siuan Sanche], but she does not know how. She studies a picture of the museum in the [Panarch's Palace|Panarchs Palace] while [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] explains the government of [Tarabon]. Before she sleeps, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] recalls some recent dreams:

* [Rand|Rand alThor] as tall as a mountain, walking through cities, crushing buildings beneath his feet, with screaming people like ants fleeing from him.
* [Rand|Rand alThor] in chains, and it was he who was screaming.
* [Rand|Rand alThor] building a wall with him on one side and her on the other, her and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and others she could not make out. "It has to be done," he was saying as he piled up stones. "I'll not let you stop me now."[1]
* [Aiel] fighting each other, killing each other, even throwing away their weapons and running as if they had gone mad.[2]
* [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] wrestling with a [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] woman who tied an invisible leash to him.[3]
* A wolf - she was sure it was [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], though - fighting a man whose face kept changing.[4]
* [Galad|Galad Damodred] wrapping himself in white as though putting on his own shroud.[5]
* [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] with his eyes full of pain and hatred.[6]
* Her mother weeping.

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] focuses on a picture of a huge skeleton as she goes to sleep.

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] is startled by the skeleton, which is huge.[7] There are several other unrecognizable skeletons. Her clothes keep changing and she finally settles on garb like [Aviendha]'s. She explores the museum and finds several items. An %%ot [angreal|Angreal]%%, a weathered [stone figurine] of a woman. A finely jointed collar and two bracelets that cause a sense of darkness and pain.[8] A three pointed star in a circle that reeks of pride and vanity.[9] There is also a broken figurine of a woman holding a crystal sphere.[10] When [Egwene|Egwene alVere] touches it, the [One Power] surges between her and the figurine causing intense pain. A man appears briefly, calls for someone named [Aeldra] and disappears. He is just an ordinary person whose dream briefly touched %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%. She leaves the [Panarch's Palace|Panarchs Palace] wondering where she should look next and wonders if a [Wise One|Aiel] could teach her.

Suddenly she is in an arid desert and realizes it must be the [Aiel Waste]. She sees a young [Aiel] woman hunting a wild boar and the woman sees her. She closes her eyes and concentrates on [Tanchico].

Back in [Tanchico] she wanders the streets. She sees things change and also sees that there are rats and wild dogs, but no horses. She wonders if a [Wise One|Aiel] could explain it.

She is back in the [Aiel Waste] with the wild boar charging at her. It runs by her and she sees the same [Aiel] woman nearby. The woman tells her she has no right to wear %%ot [cadin'sor|Aiel]%% and suddenly she is naked. She opens herself to %%ot [saidar|Said]%% and strips the other woman, shocking her. As she closes her eyes again to take herself back to [Tanchico] she sees a golden-haired woman with a silver bow watching them both.

Back in [Tanchico] she thinks she saw [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] because of listening to too many of [Thom|Thom Merrilin]'s stories. She sees a dreaming woman fly and tries it herself. She lands when she realizes that any of the [Black Ajah] might see her without her seeing them. As she lands, an [Aiel] woman appears before her. She is older than the other woman, but has the same voice. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] comments on her appearance and the woman explains that one can appear however one wants. She asks if [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is from the [White Tower] and identifies herself as [Amys] of the [Nine Valleys] sept of the [Taardad] [Aiel]. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] gives her name and says she is [Aes Sedai] of the [Green Ajah]. [Amys] asks why she is flying around this city. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] answers that it is [Tanchico] and she is hunting the [Black Ajah]. [Amys] tells her the city is full of evil. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] asks her to help, but [Amys] says she needs training. She tells [Egwene|Egwene alVere] to come to her at the [Cold Rocks] Hold. She is at [Rhuidean] now but will be back at [Cold Rocks] Hold before [Egwene|Egwene alVere] can arrive. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] begins to fade and [Amys] continues to tell her to come.
