Saved by the "Taint on Saidin" and dead later

Postby Triss » Mon Jan 07, 2019 3:17 pm

:-D That was close... I wholeheartedly recommend the book.

Bottom of an Iron Staircase
A small cul-de-sac in the bookshelves leaves space for a winding iron
staircase to the second story. The iron staircase has been fitted with a
large iron grate, locked by a large padlock. A sign has been posted on the
grate. Each wall of the cul-de-sac is covered from floor to ceiling with
shelves. The books on these shelves have all been authored by Aes Sedai,
and concern the study, practice, and utilization of the One Power.

Top of the Iron Stairs
The spiraling iron staircase opens up onto a wrought-iron catwalk which
edges the second story of bookshelves. A small sign has been posted on the
iron grate that blocks access from those below. Looking over the iron
balustrade to the west gives a birds-eye view of the layout of the library.
To the east, the catwalk reaches the shelves of restricted books.

Ok, part two was much worse.

I shouldn't have made the mistake and should have reacted faster and get out. But still, is it ok, that a warranted whitecloak walks through the Tower, in particular the Library and Brown Ajah quarters, while Amador is such a deathtrap?

A large storeroom abuts the curving outer hallway of the Tower. The room is
packed with a diverse collection of sculptures, artwork, and more exotic
decorations which have been accumulated over the centuries by the curators
of Brown Ajah. Several skulls of varying sizes of fantastic animals line a
large shelf in the back of the room, while several still-living flowers,
encased in glass, are somehow held in stasis as a permanent display. The
only obvious exit is through the door to the corridor in the west.

Amador is far from a death trap. The second time, you didn't even leave the zone. You walked past the way to safety, avoided two deathtraps for me, went and walked into a random door. Then when I opened it and walked in. You shut it for me and got yourself stabbed.

Use the 11 or so no mobs and 4ish no hides in Amador and you it nowhere near the deathtrap people think.

What Kryzen and Hasp say are true. However, from purely an RP standpoint, having known and wanted CoL sauntering through the Tower library to stab Novices and Accepteds is a little on the far fetched side.

I know how to tell a no hide room - is there any way to tell a no mob room apart from standing in it and seeing if mobs ever come in?
