! __Perrin__ POV

[Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred], [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran], [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Loial] and [Faile|Zarine Bashere] ride through [Illian|Illian (City)]. They pass through the [Square of Tammaz] and see the [King's Palace|Kings Palace] and the [Great Hall of the Council]. [Loial] is very nervous about running into other [Ogier]. [Ogier] from [Stedding Shangtai] built much of [Illian|Illian (City)] and still do work here. [Loial] mentions the [Ways] and [Faile|Zarine Bashere] overhears. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] sense something is wrong in the city and [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] notes that many people look angry. They cross the Bridge of Flowers to the Perfumed Quarter, a particularly smelly part of town near the ocean docks, and arrive at an inn, [Easing the Badger]. The innkeeper, [Nieda], knows [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and greets her as Mistress [Mari]. [Nieda] asks if her pigeons have been arriving. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] replies that she has been gone a while but she is sure [Adine|Adine Canford] has received all the reports. [Nieda]'s nephew, [Bili], normally prevents fights but this winter she had to hire a singer to keep patrons from fighting. There is a new member of the [Council of Nine|Illian (Country)], Lord [Brend|Sammael], who only arrived this winter. Both [Nieda] and [Bili] have dreamed of him on funny bridges in the air.[1] Hearing of dreams, [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] is shaken. She asks about a ship to [Tear|Tear (City)]. [Nieda] replies there are none. There is talk of war and the [Council of Nine|Illian (Country)] banned travel to [Tear|Tear (Country)]. Strangely, rumors have the army looking north to [Murandy]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] comments that she has something to do tonight and smells afraid.[2] When they sit down to dinner, [Loial] reports that [Nieda] told him all the [Ogier] left during the winter. This is very strange as [Ogier] never leave work unfinished.[3] As they eat dinner, [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] smells a stink the same as [Jarra|Jarra (Village)] and [Remen]. Six [Gray Men|Gray Man] attack [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], but [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran], [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Faile|Zarine Bashere] kill them. Only [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] sensed them. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] just now realizes how important [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is. She goes out into the night after telling [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] to take [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] to [Tar Valon] if she does not return.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] Sounds like the [Ways], the same place that [Ishamael], [Be'lal|BeLal] and [Rahvin] met in [TDR,Ch8]. These dreams come from the [Forsaken] not shielding their dreams. ([TDR,Ch53])\\
[#2] Finding out what powerful evil is invading people's dreams.\\
[#3] The [Ogier] were probably afflicted with bad dreams as well.\\
