Market Sheran is a small village in Andor on the Caemlyn Road, with just one inn. While staying at the inn there, Paitr Conel, a Darkfriend, approaches Rand and Mat and is punched to the floor, after which he reveals his allegiance in anger. On the road from the town, a farmer giving them a ride tells Rand and Mat that there is a rumor of Darkfriends in Market Sheran, something he finds highly amusing.
