The Path of Daggers: Chapter 18
Chapter Icon: Five dice, arranged in a ring
Point of View: Egwene
Egwene allows Talmanes and the Band to stay behind and not participate in the siege of the Tower.
Talmanes tells Egwene that he wishes to stay instead of going to lay siege to the Tower as he can feel that Mat needs him and that Roedran means to use the idea of the Band as a mercenary army to unite Murandy behind him. She agrees after making him promise not to get involved in a war. She returns to the Aes Sedai camp.
