Saniago Torres part 3: A Dragonsworn Meeting.

Post by Elysia » Sun Jan 05, 2020 9:25 am

On the day of the proclamations that were posted mid-September, Dragonsworn were out in force. They were already discussing whether to swear allegiance to Torres, which would have lasting repercussions for the clan in terms of warrants, banishments and so on. Not something I'd want them to leap into without the proper information. On a personal note, it's kind of funny how Dragonsworn are so full of hope for the Dragon Reborn that they would leap in like that. Hope on a player level.

At any rate, as the Dragonsworn approached a portal stone with a portal Dragonsworn scout, they were invited to meet Torres:


A Large Field
A flat expanse of greenery spreads out before joining the rhythmic rising
and falling terrain of the Cairhien hills. Growing tall and prominent,
green grasses sway delicately in the wind, clutching the soil tightly
against swift breezes. The sky is wide and open overhead.
[ obvious exits: N E W ]
An ancient stone column stands broken and partially buried in the ground.
A snake is lying on the ground here.
Telathia Deveraux is resting here, riding a warhorse.
Marwell the Dragonsworn Veteran is standing here, riding a Domani razor.
Talem the Public Relations Officer is standing here, riding a Domani razor.
Vanik the Dedicated is standing here, riding a warhorse.
Lord Dartes the Dragon Captain is standing here, riding a tall bay stallion.
Lord Enoch the Dragon Lieutenant is standing here, riding a draft horse.
A scout stands here, gathering information.

Enoch says 'I wonder if there are other locations... like evil braem but different. othere worlds'

Dartes says 'well, that's one new one down...'

Talem says 'you think that'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'There are.'

Talem says 'they just made whole new zones without us knowing'

Talem gasps in astonishment.

Enoch says 'Hello scout!'

Telathia says 'I do hope that, but I doubt the imms spent that much time on it'

Dartes says 'That, and if they have a bunch of new ones, and possible one goes to a new zone'

Enoch says 'Do you know anything about these, scout?'

A Domani razor swishes the flies off its back with its tail.

Talem looks at a Dragonsworn scout.

Dartes says 'new ones makes it harder to get to any specific place since random'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I was sent through them.'

Dartes gasps in astonishment.

Enoch strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Talem says 'who sent you?'

Dartes says 'What did you find, scout?'

Enoch says 'From where, may I ask?'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The Lord Dragon, of course.'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'From Tar Valon and the Black Tower.'

Talem says 'a dragonsworn who is serving the new dragon...'

Marwell says 'Lord Dragon Torres?'

Dartes strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Talem says 'black tower...'

Talem gasps in astonishment.

A Dragonsworn scout glares at Marwell.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'Who else.'

Talem strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Dartes says 'How many of these Portal stones are there now, do you know?'

Talem says 'this is pressing matters.'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I only know this one.'

Dartes nods in agreement.

Dartes says 'Can you tel us the location of the Black Tower?'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I just did.'

Marwell says 'maybe it is only reachable via new portal stones?'

Enoch says 'I found Lord Torres earlier today. He did not seem well protected from assassins. I'm afraid the White Tower might try to capture him.'

A warhorse lays its ears flat against its neck.

Marwell says 'like EB?'

Dartes strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Dartes nods at a Dragonsworn scout.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The Lord Dragon may be willing to meet with you, on neutral grounds.'

Dartes nods in agreement.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'We too, have knowledge of the Evil Braem.'

Talem says 'He saw our post...'

Enoch smiles happily.

Dartes says 'Our sole purpose is to serve the Dragon and ensure he makes it to Tarmon Gai'dom.'

The large wolf leaves east.

Marwell says 'is the portal stone the only way to get to the black tower?'

Marwell says 'similiar to evil braem?'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'From here, obviously it is.'

Talem says 'through Tar Valon and the Black Tower...'

Talem ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Dartes says 'We hope to aide him, before the White Tower gets to him.'

Dartes spits over his shoulder.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'Although technically I could suppose that you could travel to another world and from there to the Black Tower.'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The White Tower.'

A Dragonsworn scout smirks.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The White Tower is weak.'

Talem grins evilly.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'There is no more White Tower.'

Dartes nods at a Dragonsworn scout.

Enoch nods at a Dragonsworn scout.

Talem gasps in astonishment.

Marwell says 'good'

Marwell says 'that is great news'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The Aes Sedai serve him, or they are imprisoned.'

Talem stops using a mirrored lantern.

Enoch says 'The Aes Seadi here seem bent on controlling and capturing him'

Dartes says 'Ah, scout, I think you are from an alternate timeline or world as ours...'

Marwell says 'alternate dimension'

Dartes says 'Here, the White Tower still exists, and they try to impose their will on others.'

Dartes frowns.

Marwell says 'or perhaps we are from an alternate dimension...'

Talem says 'are we... in the alternative timeline?'

Dartes nods at Marwell.

Dartes says 'I feel as if we are still in our same time.'

Vanik has returned.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I am from the True World. The Lord Dragon is from the True World.'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'You are merely... mirror images.'

Marwell says 'either way, it is our calling to find, and support the Dragon Reborn'

Dartes strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Vanik starts riding a warhorse.

Talem says 'the mirror world...'

Dartes says 'How can we tell if yours is not the mirror?'

Talem says 'that is our neutral ground'

Enoch says 'Would the Dragon of one mirror world be the Dragon in all worlds I wonder?'

Vanik says 'will non-channelers be able to find their way to the dragon?'

A Dragonsworn scout rolls his eyes...sheesh!..

Dartes says 'I suppose the Dragon would need to be proclaimed in all worlds, as I assume the Dark One reaches across them all as well...'

A Dragonsworn scout says 'The Lord Dragon is not stupid.'

Dartes chuckles politely.

Talem whispers, "Tel'aran'rhiod..."

A Dragonsworn scout says 'Let me remember the combination.'

The sun sets.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I am not trained to travel to this world.'

Talem looks at a Dragonsworn scout.

Marwell says 'odd that you would be sent then'

Marwell says 'with no way to return?'

Dartes thinks hard.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'I mean the Evil Braem one.'

Dartes nods in agreement.

A Dragonsworn scout says 'My homeworld is easy.'

Enoch smiles happily.

Marwell says 'how do we get there?'

Talem whispers something to Dartes.

A Dragonsworn scout sneers at Marwell.

Talem nods at Dartes.

Dartes says 'Perhaps you could join us, as we attempt to get to Evil Braem'

A Dragonsworn scout presses a particular order of symbols.

Talem blinks his eyes innocently.

There is an ominous hum.

Enoch looks around slowly, as if something is hidden in the room.

The hum grows stronger, ringing in your ears.

Dartes rubs the goosebumps on his arms.

Marwell grins evilly.

There is a flash of bright, white light.

Far in the Braem Wood
An old chestnut tree stands here, in splendid isolation amidst the
thousands of oak-trees of every shape and variety. The bark of the tree is
old and gnarled, and its girth is wider that four trollocs' reach. More
oaks, characteristic of the Braem Wood, can be seen north, south and west.
[ obvious exits: N E S W ]
An ancient stone column stands broken and partially buried in the ground.
Vanik the Dedicated is standing here.
Talem the Public Relations Officer is standing here.
Lord Enoch the Dragon Lieutenant is standing here.
Marwell the Dragonsworn Veteran is standing here.
Lord Dartes the Dragon Captain is standing here.
A cute brown deer eyes you nervously.
Siuan Sanche stands by the Dragon Reborn's side.
Saniago Torres lounges insolently.

Enoch looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Dartes kneels solemnly before Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Enoch says 'Saniago'

Vanik looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Dartes looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Enoch bows deeply.

Talem looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Marwell kneels solemnly before Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Talem peers closely at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn, trying to figure him out.

Marwell looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Vanik ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Tall and lanky, with red hair and blue eyes, this man looks more like an
Aiel than someone from west of the Dragonwall. He wears a belt with a
crescent buckle, denoting his Tairen upbringing. He lounges behind what was
the Amyrlin Seat's desk, looking about him with an arrogance that could
only have come from being brought up in a privileged position.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn is in excellent condition.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn is using:
<held> a bracelet of twisted silver
<worn around neck> a shimmering pendant of obsidian
<worn on body> a black shirt trimmed in lace
<slung on back> a heron engraved scabbard
<worn on hands> a pair of dark gloves
<worn around wrist> a jeweled wristcuff
<worn around wrist> a jeweled wristcuff
<worn as shield> a polished onyx-inlaid shield
<wielded> a heron marked longsword
<worn on legs> a black pair of pants
<worn on feet> a pair of soft leather sandals

You attempt to peek at the inventory:
You can't see anything.

Dartes looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Enoch says 'Lord Dragon'

Talem knuckles his forehead to Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn, honoring him.

Dartes says 'Saniago, the Dragon!'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'On your knees, peasants.'

Enoch kneels solemnly on the ground.

Dartes kneels solemnly on the ground.

Marwell kneels solemnly on the ground.

Vanik kneels solemnly on the ground.

Talem says 'I do not want to be so quick...'

Talem says 'after we served a false one...'

Siuan Sanche looks at you suspiciously.

Dartes glances at Talem.

Vanik looks at Siuan Sanche.

Talem closes his eyes.

Talem kneels solemnly on the ground.

Enoch looks at Siuan Sanche.

Dartes looks at Siuan Sanche.

Marwell looks at Siuan Sanche.

A badger has arrived from the west.

Enoch inclines his head in greeting to Siuan Sanche.

Dartes breathes quietly 'The former Amyrlin!'

Talem looks at Siuan Sanche.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Now, you wanted to discuss prophecies?'

Talem opens his eyes.

Talem looks at Dartes.

Dartes nods slowly...

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn gestures around him.

Dartes says 'In our world, many are skeptical of the Dragon's return... as you might expect.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Observe my powers.'

Dartes says 'They are afraid of what it means...'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'There is now peace here.'

Dartes looks at a brown deer.

Enoch says 'That is most impressive'

Enoch pats a brown deer on its head.

Dartes looks at a badger.

Dartes gasps in astonishment.

Marwell says 'that is impressive'

Enoch says 'These things used to be incredibly dangerous'

Talem looks at a brown deer.

Vanik whispers something to Talem.

Talem says 'you tamed the evil deer....'

Talem gasps in astonishment.

Dartes looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Marwell says 'is....evil elyas also tamed?'

Siuan Sanche says 'Lord Dragon, perhaps you should tell them about Callandor?'

Enoch boggles at the thought.

Talem looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Marwell gasps in astonishment.

Enoch says 'Callandor??'

Dartes arches an eyebrow.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Silence. I will decide what I will tell them.'

Marwell looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Enoch says 'In our world it sits hidden away, deep within the stone.'

Dartes nods at Enoch.

Siuan Sanche says 'As you wish, Lord Dragon.'

Talem whispers, "Callandor..."

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn scoffs 'The Stone.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'The Stone was the easy part.'

Marwell says 'you have Callandar?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I have drawn it, yes.'

Dartes says 'One of the surest signs of the Dragon's rebirth!'

Enoch says 'Does this mean there are two Callandors?'

Dartes says 'Have you obtained the Crown of Swords? In our world it still sit upon the head of the King of Illian.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'All of the world has united under my banner, except the lands of the Shadow.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I intend to do the same with all worlds.'

Dartes nods in thought.

Marwell says 'tell us what we can do to help'

Dartes nods at Marwell.

Marwell says 'to prepare the way for you in our world'

Talem says 'yes, master, tell us how to serve'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Swear fealty to me. And when the Last Battle comes, you will be deployed like everyone else.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn looks at each of you in turn.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn smirks.

Enoch says 'If there is similar Saniago Torres in our world, will you take care of him? He is obviously not you. The Tower may think it a victory if they capture him.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I expect no great strategists among you, so you will be footmen.'

Dartes arches an eyebrow.

Talem looks at Dartes.

Talem says 'Our Lord Dartes has proven himself to be a great strategist, Lord Dragon'

Dartes says 'I think you would be surprised at what we are able to do.'

Enoch says 'Some of us have abilities'

Marwell says 'not me...im a good footman'

Marwell coughs loudly.

Dartes says 'Many of us might be more capable and useful than you'd expect.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Abilities. Many have abilities. If you're a peasant, you have no place among the generals of the Dragon Reborn.'

Dartes says 'Especially when navigating a new mirror world.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I will not need to navigate it.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'My forces will be sent there.'
Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'When the time comes, we will strike in the True World, and in any other worlds.'
Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'The Last Battle will truly be fought on many fronts.'

Dartes says 'Who are these generals that you would send? I think that the Dragonsworn in our world can be much more useful than mere... footmen.'

Talem says 'You I will serve... are we ordered to serve the one in our world as well, or to await your return and command?'

Marwell says 'Lord dartes, if footmen is what he requires, then footmen is what we will be.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Only those of noble birth have the adequate training to be a general.'

Talem says 'noble birth...'

Marwell says 'i swear fealty to the True Dragon Reborn, Saniago Torres.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Of course not. Your worth is dictated by birth. Not by...'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn scoffs 'Training.'

Enoch arches an eyebrow.

Dartes glances at Enoch.

Talem frowns.

Talem slowly nods.

Dartes says 'I am not convinced that birth alone can dictate skill.'

Vanik says 'Forgive me, but while my faith in the dragon is unwavering, i cannot suppress my current uncertainty'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn snaps 'Are you saying us Tairens are wrong? Are you saying the Lord Dragon is wrong?'

There is a dangerous flicker in Saniago Torres' eye.

Marwell says 'hmmmmmm'

Marwell says 'where were you born?'

Siuan Sanche murmurs 'My Lord Dragon, perhaps they are not Tairen?'

Enoch says 'In our world even a peasant can eventually learn the sword and move up the ranks, and learn tactics in battle.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I was born on Dragonmount, after the Aiel sought to conquer Tar Valon.'

Marwell nods in agreement.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'A Yellow Sister found me and gave me to a Defender's wife.'

Enoch says 'That does fit with the prophecies.'

Dartes says 'That, at least, sounds like it fits...'
Dartes nods at Enoch.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I was raised in the Stone until I became a Defender myself.'

Talem says 'that would mean... the dragon in our world is also in Tear...'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Why would there be a Dragon in your world? Your world is a mere mirror of the True World.'

Marwell says 'because you left posters on the gates of every city'

Enoch says 'All worlds are equally mirrors of other worlds I would assume.'

Dartes says 'Who is to say which is the True world? How do we know?'

Marwell says 'declaring yourself the dragon'

Talem nods at Marwell.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I am the Dragon. Therefore your world does not need one.'

Talem boggles at the thought.

Vanik frowns.

Talem looks at Dartes.

Dartes thinks hard.

Siuan Sanche says 'In our world, the Tairens look down on peasants.'

Siuan Sanche says 'I was born a fisherman's daughter and I was worth nothing.'

Marwell says 'pretty much the same in our world too Maam'

Siuan Sanche says 'Only because I became Aes Sedai, I have been able to shake off that yoke.'

Dartes says 'You said birth means everything, and yet now you say you earned your way out of that?'

Enoch says 'How would those of us here shake it off?'

Dartes says 'I argue the same for those in our world.'

Marwell nods at Dartes.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Never for mere peasants and commoners.'

Dartes says 'The measure of a man or woman is by his actions, not his birth.'

Siuan Sanche says 'I was the Amyrlin, you must understand. It is why....'

Marwell nods at Dartes.

Siuan Sanche eyes Saniago sideways.

Enoch says 'The Amyrlin who used to be a commoner.'

Siuan Sanche says 'The Lord Dragon tolerates... me.'

Marwell says 'men and women can become great...despite uncontrolled circumstances.'
Enoch says 'That is to be commended.'

Dartes glances between Siun and Saniago.

Dartes thinks hard.

Talem breathes heavily.

Vanik says 'It seems to me that a strategic person would want to use the full resources and knowledge of people... especially if it involves a world that has differences from what you are used to...'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I would have been worthless, had it not been for my upbringing.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'No peasant can achieve what I did.'

Marwell nods at Vanik.

Enoch nods at Vanik.

Dartes says 'Are you so sure? Is Siuan not proof of the opposite?'

Dartes inclines his head in greeting to Siuan Sanche.

Talem looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'She did not achieve what I did. She surrendered to me. And that is why Tar Valon still stands.'

Marwell says 'it does not seem that you were born in a palace either Lord Dragon'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'How would you know? There were many soldiers on Dragonmount.'

Talem looks at Marwell.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'It is obvious that I am descended of noble birth. Possibly even royalty.'

Talem holds his coat tighter.

Marwell says 'were your parents kings and queens ?'

Enoch says 'If they were they should be easy to track down'

Dartes says 'Is it obvious? If you were, would they have allwoed you to be raised by a mere defender of the Stone?'

Dartes nods at Enoch.

Marwell says 'i must say i am a bit dissapointed. i did not expect the true Dragon Reborn to be a pompous, arrogant fool, who looks down on those who would die for him.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'The Defenders are the oldest remaining organization in our world. Founded after the Stone was built, shortly after the Breaking.'

Talem says 'but you arleady swore your fealty...'

Marwell says 'and i sstill do'

Marwell says 'i am just dissapointed. I will still serve'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Perhaps the only one older is the organization of the Aes Sedai.'

Dartes says 'And yet the highest among them was still a peasant.'

Dartes arches an eyebrow.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Siuan is not the highest. Logain is among them and he is of noble birth.'

Talem says 'logain...that name is familiar'

Enoch says 'You have male and female Aes Sedai?'

Marwell says 'i have heard it as well'

Marwell says 'Lord Dragon, if none of us are worthy to lead, yet we will be called upon, will you be sending someone to lead us until it is time for you to enter our world?'

Talem says 'What if... in our world we could help establish the Black Tower with the help of the Lord Dragon here and prepare the way for the True world to manifest in ours'


Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I will not enter your world.'

Dartes says 'How can you defeat the Shadow in the world if you cannot enter it?'

Elissa arrives in a flash of bright, white light. [EDITED FOR EFFECT]

The portal stone dims. [EDITED FOR EFFECT]

Enoch looks at Elissa archly.

Marwell beams a smile at Elissa.

Dartes nods at Elissa.

Elissa looks around confused.

Elissa says 'H-how did I arrive here?'

Talem looks at Elissa.

Talem gasps in astonishment.

Marwell says 'ify ou will not enter our world, then what is our purpose?'

Talem says 'He summoned her...'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn looks incredulous.

Enoch says 'Elissa, mean Aes Sedai Siuan Sanche and the Lord Dragon of this world, Saniago Torres.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'You will not be privvy to my strategy.'

A brown deer has arrived from the south. [SNEAK]

Enoch says 'Your own supporters would be left in the dark?'

Marwell says 'so your wish is for us to do nothing?'

Talem says 'he is calling us to serve him in our world, though he exists in this one'

Talem says 'and to wait'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn peers closely at Enoch, trying to figure him out.

Talem says 'as we always have'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Curious choice of words.'

Elissa clutches a book of the Prophecies to her chest, watching the conversation of her betters take place.

Siuan Sanche says 'I am sure the Dragonsworn meant nothing by it, Lord Dragon.'

Enoch nods at Siuan Sanche.

Talem nods at Siuan Sanche.

Enoch says 'I just mean we are less helpful when we are missing important knowledge of your plans.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Almost as bad as naming the Dark One.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'DID YOU NOT LISTEN!?'

Talem says 'We wait for his command, Enoch'

Talem trembles.

Dartes says 'In our world, only the Dragonsworn are enlightened enough to pave the way and unite the Light. I think you'll find that you'll need us to unify our world.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Your are not of noble birth, you are footmen. You move where I tell you to move. You act when I tell you to act.'

Elissa runs her gaze over the man, taking in his features.

Dartes says 'How do you know our births? What our backgrounds are?'

Talem says 'Let us recruit someone into our fold of noble birth then'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I will not need to unify the world, merely to conquer it. As I did with mine.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn rolls his eyes...sheesh!..

Dartes says 'That chose to leave Tear to follow the Dragon?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'No High Lord of Tear would ever be a former High Lord of Tear.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Unless they were dead.'

Enoch says 'What of the crystal throne? One prophecy states that the Dragon will kneel before it.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn scoffs at that.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I sit on it, in the Amyrlin's Study.'

Marwell says 'Lord Dragon, what are your commands for us'

Dartes glances at Marwell.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'To wait until my term is up, and be deployed and conquer those who will not swear fealty.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I will be victorious, by surrender, or by the sword.'

Dartes says 'Can you show us Callandor? The Dragon marks on your wrists? the heron brands?'

Dartes says 'Forgive me, this is all quite sudden.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Callandor lies safely hidden.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'As for the others, that is really none of your business.'

Dartes arches an eyebrow.

Dartes says 'Is it not the most important of our business?'

Marwell says 'i retract my fealty then'

Talem gasps in astonishment.

Dartes says 'The clear markings that one has met the prophecies?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I have already told you I have fulfilled all the Prophecies.'

Marwell says 'if you will not provide one form of evidence, except your word, then i have no choice but to believe you are lying.'

Talem snickers softly.

Dartes says 'Are we to merely take your word and this... supposed Siuan Sedai?'

Dartes gestures at Siuan.

Talem says 'he made a deer appear.'

Siuan Sanche says 'He has fulfilled the Prophecies.'

Elissa looks at Siuan Sanche.

Enoch says 'Our organization is sworn to follow the Dragon, prepare for his coming, and to vet him to make sure he is the True Dragon.'

Talem says 'He clearly is a very powerful channeler.'

Enoch nods at Talem.

Dartes says 'Can you prove any of them?'

Dartes nods at Enoch.

Talem says 'but we need the proof'

Elissa says 'My Lord.'

Siuan Sanche says 'He took the Stone. He drew Callandor. He conquered Seanchan. He wears the Laurel Crown. Or... well... he could.'

Marwell says 'he claims'

Dartes says 'Could?'

Dartes looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.


Siuan Sanche glares at your fiercely.

Marwell says 'we have not seen proof of any of this '

Siuan Sanche says 'He is not wearing it now.'

Elissa says 'Please forgive the suspicious nature of my comrades - we have been deceived before, and we are hesitant to make the same mistakes again.'

Enoch says 'Aes Sedai, do you swear the equivalent of what we call the 'three oaths' here?'

Enoch says 'Aes Sedai, do you swear the equivalent of what we call the 'three oaths' here?'

Dartes nods at Elissa.

Talem nods at Enoch.

Dartes looks at Siuan Sanche.


This woman is of average height and her dark glossy hair suggests she hails
from one of the southern nations. She is pretty, if not quite beautiful,
with blue eyes and a delicate mouth in a fair-skinned and ageless face. She
stands on the right side of Saniago Torres, looking decisive.

Siuan Sanche is in excellent condition.

Siuan Sanche is using:
<worn on finger> a great serpent ring
<worn on head> a golden diadem with a hanging sapphire
<worn about body> a blue satin dress embroidered with snowdrops
<worn around wrist> a golden bracelet
<wielded two-handed> a staff of sungwood
<worn on feet> a pair of soft, light shoes

Enoch says 'We once followed a man named Bardomir Lazar. He turned out to be false.'

Marwell says 'i have never met Siuan, i do not know if this is even her.'

Talem nods at Enoch.

Siuan Sanche says 'We now have Four Oaths. The Fourth is fealty to the Lord Dragon.'

Dartes says 'A good oath for sure.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn chuckles politely.

Enoch says 'Another man, I forget his name, also claimed to be the Dragon, and he also fell.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Lazar. The poor thing.'

Talem says 'Huma...?'

Dartes shakes his head at Talem.

Enoch says 'Is one of your three oaths that you cannot tell a lie?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Lazar could channel but a trickle.'

Talem nods in agreement.

Dartes says 'The Bardomir of our world was significantly more than a... 'trickle'.'

Talem says 'but he couldn't channel.'

Siuan Sanche says 'Our investigations have shown that your world's Oaths and mine are very similar.'

Talem says 'when he was attacked and killed....nothing'

Marwell says 'Saniago, you may be a powerful channeler, but you have given no proof that you are the Dragon Reborn.'

Enoch says 'So the Oaths differ? Other than the fourth?'

Siuan Sanche says 'There are some small nuances.'

Talem arches an eyebrow.

Enoch arches an eyebrow.

Dartes says 'We stand ready, and are willing to serve the true Dragon Reborn. However, we require at least some proof beyond the mere word of a man we just met minutes ago.'

Marwell nods at Dartes.

Talem says 'proof that is the prophesy.'

Elissa says 'My Lords, may I ask a simple question of a commoner?'

Dartes nods at Elissa.

Elissa says 'If you are the Dragon Reborn of this universe, what would you do if ours is born onto ours?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Do you mean if I was born into yours?'

Elissa says 'Yes.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn gives Siuan a look, rolling his eyes.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'How in the Light can I answer that question? I would fulfill the Prophecies. I am the Dragon Reborn.'

Marwell says 'and at that point, we would swear fealty to you.'


Siuan Sanche says 'I believe the Lord Dragon is saying that fate leaves you no choice.'

Marwell says 'but until then, i am sorry. Our search continues'

Elissa looks thoughtful, turning her gaze to the ground.

Dartes says 'Saniago.. what if I was to tell you that there was a Saniago in our world? I have met him...'

Dartes says 'Which of you is the true dragon?'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'I am not surprised. There is a Dartes in my world too.'
Dartes says 'A handsome fellow I can imagine.'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'He is dead.'

Marwell says 'is he as dashing and handsome in your world?'

Marwell winks at Dartes.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'He refused to swear to me.'

Dartes arches an eyebrow.

Enoch comforts Dartes.

Talem gulps.

Marwell looks at Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn.

Dartes says 'I think that I can say I know Dartes pretty well...'

Dartes says 'And how he thinks...'

Dartes says 'And if he did not swear in your world, perhaps he has a good point?'

Dartes says 'Did you not provide any proof to him as well?'

Talem says 'And if it is Fate, then you would swear anyway'

Dartes says 'He judges a man on his actions.'

Dartes nods at Talem.

Marwell nods at Dartes.

A vein starts throbbing in Saniago's forehead.

Talem looks at his vein.

Elissa kneels solemnly on the ground.

Marwell says 'on his actions, not his words, or his royal birth'

Dartes nods at Marwell.

Talem says 'that vein is producing some action right now...'

Talem gulps.

Siuan Sanche says 'This Dartes, he felt the Lord Dragon was inadequate to lead the world to victory.'

Siuan Sanche glances at Saniago again.

Dartes eyes Siuan closely.

Siuan Sanche says 'This Dartes felt a more level headed man would be... better for the world.'

Marwell says 'unless you are willing to provide some form of proof, i believe we are done with this meeting.'
Enoch now follows Dartes.

Dartes says 'A Level head is certainly ideal for uniting the Light under one banner'

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Very well. You have 9 days and some change to change your mind.'

Elissa continues to stay on her knees, her eyes on the ground.

Saniago Torres, the Dragon Reborn says 'Siuan, see them home.'

Talem says 'We stand by Lord Dartes to know, and we stand by the prophesies and wait until it is fulfilled in our world, or proof that you have. '

Dartes says 'Unless you can come up with hard evidence, I can't guarantee our minds will change.'

Siuan is connecting to the True Source.'.

Marwell says 'until SOME proof is given, my mind will not change.'

Dartes says 'I must act in the best interests of my people.'

Marwell says 'we have been fooled before'

Talem says 'Perhaps only a wicked generation seeks a sign'

Dartes nods at Marwell.

Talem says 'and we are the ones ....'

Talem ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Siuan Sanche concentrates on several symbols on the column.

Marwell says 'best interest of the true Dragon Reborn's people'

Dartes says 'And the man that fooled us had much more evididence in his favor beyoond his word.'

Dartes nods at Marwell.
