A Fan of Colors
Chapter Icon: a'dam
Point of View: Mat
Mat visits the wagon where Tuon, Selucia and Setalle are staying. Mat speaks with Tuon and she makes references to promises that he has made her, saying that if he keeps them, she will do nothing to betray him or his followers, nor will she try to escape. The dice stop rolling when she makes this promise. This is the third time they seem to have done so in connection with Tuon. Thom finds Mat there and gives him news of the city, including the fact that Queen Tylin was killed by the gholam hunting Mat. Mat's reaction surprises Tuon.
Blaeric summons Mat to see Joline. He leaves Tuon for the wagon crowded with three Aes Sedai and sul'dam. Joline tells Mat that they cannot go to Lugard as planned. There is an argument between Joline and the other women. Mat listens, but says they are still going to Lugard. Reference is made to some massive channeling being done to the north. Joline believes it is the Forsaken, but Mat knows it is Rand.
