Saniago Torres part 1: A Portal Stone found.

Post by Elysia » Sun Jan 05, 2020 9:10 am

In November 2018, Erulisse was tasked with investigating a newly found portal stone in the Spine. The thing was remarkably intact.

The Giant Chamber of Stone
Most parts of this chamber look to have been formed naturally by the water
dripping from the ceiling of limestone but here and there the touch of man
clearly shines through. A pile of dry wood has been stuffed away in a corner
where the water can't get to it and in the middle of the chamber there are some
remnants of a fire. It looks to be a holdup for travelers seeking their way
through the mountains. The only exit is out through the stonegates to the east.
[ obvious exits: E ]
A large slab of meat has been placed here. [7]
A mirrored lantern has been left here.
A tall stone column stands here, covered in symbols.
Erulisse Avehelm, The Brown Recluse is standing here.
A gray palfrey prances skittishly nearby.

look stone
This column is divided in two sections. The upper half is covered in
circles with arrows that extend from the center to the edge of the circle,
while in other symbols, the arrows extend out of the circle. The arrows
extend north, east, south and westwards. One circle just has a point.

Symbols on the lower half include a wavy line, two horizontal wavy lines
crossed by a crenelated line, a four-spoked wheel, a circle with a triangle
and a circle with an upside down triangle.

Upon using the correct combination of symbols, Erulisse found herself in a portal stone world, where she was quickly captured by an Asha'man and placed in jail.

A Large and Spacious Cell
The room is huge and cavernous, showing that it was not always a cell. It
is kept fairly clean, and indication that the people who hold the Tower do
not want the prisoners in here to die of disease. Blankets and pillows
cover the floor, looking fairly freshly laundered. This is a cell for
holding the Aes Sedai that were captured and would not submit after the
Tower had fallen to the Dragon Reborn. Torches line the walls in iron
holders, providing good illumination to the dark gray stone room.
[ obvious exits: N ]
A Brown Sister roams about the halls.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan stands here.
An ageless woman in a red shawl stands here.

Elaida responded to several queries.

Rand al'Thor:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Who?'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Never heard that name before.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Sounds like a Two Rivers name?'

Perrin Aybara and/or Mat Cauthon:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Sounds like a Two Rivers name.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan shrugs.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Who is he?'

Bardomir Lazar:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The False Dragon?'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He was captured and gentled years ago.'

Dragon Reborn or Who rules the Tower?
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Saniago Torres is the Dragon Reborn, or so he claims.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He has fulfilled some Prophecies, he says.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He is a brute. An arrogant boy.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'We are never going to win the Last Battle with him.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.

Callandor:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan nods at you.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He drew the Sword That Is Not A Sword alright.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'All he had to do was attend the raising of a High Lord and,'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'as that is done in the presence of Callandor...'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan mutters 'The Stone did not even HAVE to fall.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'If Salita was still alive, I'd have her flogged.'

Prophecies or Karaethon cycle:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Well, he was born on Dragonmount.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says' The Yellow Salita Toranes found him there, after the Battle of the Shining walls.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Aiel had been defeated then and were on their way back to the Waste.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'She was walking the battlefield, looking for people to save.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'And save someone, she did.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Salita is Tairen so upon her return to Tar Valon,'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'she sought out the Tairen contingent under Lord Astoril Damara,'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'And gave him to the wife of a Defender named Torres.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says' The wife named the boy Saniago.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan sighs.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Little did Salita know she made taking the Stone really easy for him.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'All he had to do was wake up and leave his chambers, in a way.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'There's a few more, of course.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan frowns.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'You've been away a long time, haven't you, that you're asking all these questions?'

Aiel:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'After Tear, Saniago met with the Aiel.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He -looks- like an Aiel, too.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan purses her lips.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He used to dye his hair black to look more like a Tairen, but his complexion and eyes...'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Aiel call him the Car'a'carn.'

Seanchan:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'We've had reports of Seanchan, but they are still far away.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'I'm not sure what Torres means to do about them. Or with them.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan shrugs.

Dragonsworn:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Those louts, they are disrespectful towards the Aes Sedai.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'At least the Torres boy seems to realize he needs us.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Otherwise he would have had the ones who did not swear fealty executed instead of thrown in here.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Dragonsworn however, seem to take pleasure in tormenting the Sisters.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Like the hunted who becomes the hunter.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.

Amyrlin:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan snarls angrily.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'I was the Amyrlin Seat after Siuan Sanche was deposed.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Then Torres and the Dragonsworn took Tar Valon.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'They gave the White Tower an ultimatum: bend the knee and swear fealty or face the force of the Dragonsworn.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'While the Shining Walls have been breached before, I did not think his rag tag band of rabble could cross the bridges.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Turns out he has been training tainted male channelers.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'These asha'man are all male channelers.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'What is the world coming to.'

Wolf:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'What do wolves have to do with this?'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Wolves still attack Shadowspawn, as they always have.'

Ashaman:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'These men are all trained as weapons.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'They still taint, but they wield Saidin in name of the 'Lord Dragon'.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan glances around at the other prisoners.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'If the other Ajahs weren't so indecisive, we would have captured Torres as soon as he had taken the Stone.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Stone's walls are no hindrance to Aes Sedai.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.

Seals:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Torres has at least one in his possession.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Light send he is careful with it.'

Tar'mon Gaidon or the Last Battle:

A Brown Sister nearby scoffs at that.
A Brown Sister says 'A boy indeed.'
A Brown Sister says 'He doesn't realize there are infinite possibilities with these portal stones.'
A Brown Sister says 'He cannot unite the past, present or future.'
A Brown Sister says 'Nor can he unite worlds in which the Shadow won.'
A Brown Sister says 'I, for one, wouldn't want to run into my counterpart, elsewhere.'

Marks or marked:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan recites 'Twice and twice shall he be marked.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He has four marks alright, although how he acquired them remains a mystery.'

Illian, Laurel Crown or Crown of Swords:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He gathered the Tairen armies and conquered Illian.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Tairens have never been happier, I will tell you that.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'King Mattin fled and was never seen again, so the Torres boy claimed the Crown of Swords.'

Taint:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He is tainted, of course.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'As are all those Asha'man.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan smirks.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Tetsuan and Bonwhin would be ashamed of the Red Ajah, to see us like this.'

Horn of Valere:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'It has been found, reportedly.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'I do not know who has it, though.'

Eye of the World:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan em scoffs at that.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'I do not believe in fairy tales.'

Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'I am not sure if he fulfilled that.'

Masema:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'A Shienaran named Masema began calling himself the Prophet of the Dragon,'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'as soon as word reached Fal Dara that the Stone had fallen.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He was banished from Shienar for inciting the people.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'He now resides in Tar Valon, leading the Dragonsworn.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Yellows find him more than slightly unhinged.'

Escape or leave:
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'They should be coming with food and forkrooted water soon.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'There are so many of the Asha'man up in the Tower that they are not worried about us escaping.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'We would never make it out of the Tower's gates, let alone Tar Valon's gates.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'They tend to leave the door open, these Asha'man are so arrogant.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'Even the Hall is now the Hall of the Asha'man.'
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan fumes quietly.
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan says 'The Torres boy has taken over my study, too.'

After they come with the forkrooted water, Erulisse was able to leave, killing several Asha'man. After using the column and reporting back to Mother (the Amyrlin Seat), she was instructed to keep all of this a secret.

By that time, I was already planning a global, which is what we'll be having next week. However, implementing KMG took 2 months instead of 2 weeks, and thus I missed last year's holiday season. By the time I was done with KMG, I had ideas to raid the Stone, include other clans and tie in the revamping of the White Tower...
