Adar 18 (April 30)
- 998 NE - At dawn, a female Darkfriend, Mili Skane, tries to kill Rand al'Thor and Matrim Cauthon. On the Caemlyn Road, Rand and Mat hide through a hole in the hedge from a group of merchants' guards. Hyam Kinch gives them a ride. They pass Carysford after dark, and sleep in a haystack.
