Tear


The Stone of Tear and High Lord Darlin, who is Rand's steward, is presently under siege by nobles who want Rand out of Tear. Rand sent several of the Aes Sedai who swore fealty to help negotiate an end to the siege and it seems to be going very well. In addition, there are as many Sea Folk in Tear as Tairens, because they are there to elect a new Mistress of Ships.
