(Overlap with A Crown of Swords)

Circa (Taisham 17th?): Nobles from the Borderlands—Queen Ethenielle of Kandor, King Paitar of Arafel, King Easar of Shienar and Queen Tenobia of Saldea—meet secretly in the Black Hills to perform an ancient ceremony which will bond them in a joint cause. Having left behind enough forces to defend their respective nations, each leader has brought with them a large army intent on defeating Rand al'Thor. Also included in this force are thirteen Aes Sedai, eight accompanying Paitar, and five travelling with Tenobia. [TPOD-H-18]

Taisham 17th: Verin uses something similar to Compulsion to attempt to gain knowledge from Beldeine Nyram, one of the Aiel's captive Aes Sedai. Verin also issues commands to Beldeine, who retains no knowledge of Verin's actions. [TPOD-H-37]

Aware that almost all runaways from the Tower find their way to the Kin, the Aes Sedai have not interfered with the Circle's operation. [ACOS-H-479]

Taisham 18th: Spotting Nynaeve boarding a river vessel, Moghedien attacks the boat with balefire. Cut in two, the vessel immediately sinks to the bottom of the River Eldar. Trapped in the wreckage, Nynaeve surrenders to saidar and uses the One Power to escape, thus ridding herself of her block. She is dragged to the surface by Lan, only recently arrived in Ebou Dar. [ACOS-H-482]

Taisham 18th: After learning of his bond with Myrelle, Nynaeve announces her intention to marry Lan immediately. From Lan's description of the sinking, Nynaeve realizes that her attacker was Moghedien. [ACOS-H-491]

Taisham 18th • Late Afternoon: Elayne leads five Aes Sedai to the Kin's residence, where Reane and the other Kinswomen are told of the White Tower's knowledge of their operation. All of the Kin are offered a chance to return to the White Tower, and the Aes Sedai are shocked to learn that the Circle numbers 1,783 women, almost twice the number of Aes Sedai in the Tower. Reane reveals the location of a storeroom of ter'angreal in the Rahad. [ACOS-H-497]

Taisham 18th • Night: Nynaeve and Lan are married by the Mistress of the Ships of the Atha'an Miere. Both are required to adhere to Sea Folk marriage rites. [ACOS-H-581]

Taisham 18th • Night: Gawayn Trakand and his Younglings escort twelve Aes Sedai, led by Covarla Baldene, to Tar Valon. These sisters represent the only Aes Sedai of the original thirty-nine sent to capture Rand to return. [ACOS-H-505]

Taisham 19th • Night • Second Low: Elaida receives news of the events surrounding Rand's rescue at Dumai's Wells. Alviarin, aware of the Amyrlin's tenuous position, begins asserting control over Elaida. [ACOS-H-505]

Taisham 19th • Early Morning: Seaine Herimon is ordered by Elaida to seek out any and all information regarding potential treasonous activities in the White Tower. Believing that she has been set the task of uncovering the Black Ajah, Seaine seeks help from Pevara. [ACOS-H-512]

Taisham 19th • Morning: Rand admits his love to Min, as well as his affections towards Elayne and Aviendha. In turn, Min reveals her love of Rand, and of her knowledge of Elayne and Aviendha's feelings toward him. Min also tells him of a viewing involving Rand merging with another man. Of these two men, Min knows that one will die. [ACOS-H-524]

Taisham 19th • Morning: Leaving the Royal Palace accompanied by a large procession, Rand makes his way to the Cairhien docks to meet with the Atha'an Miere aboard White Spray. [ACOS-H-533]

Taisham 19th • Morning: A large party, including Mat, Lan, Nynaeve and Elayne, leaves the Tarasin Palace and sets out for the Rahad in search of the Bowl of Winds. [ACOS-H-581]

Taisham 19th • Late Morning/Before Noon: Speaking for the Atha'an Miere, Harine din Togara Two Winds acknowledges Rand as the Coramoor, as prophesied in the Jendai Propehcy. The Sea Folk agree to provide ships to Rand when needed, and to scout the Aryth Ocean for the return of the Seanchan. [ACOS-H-538]

Taisham 19th: Shortly after arriving at the six-storied building in the Rahad, the group searching for the Bowl of the Winds is confronted by Ispan Shefar and Falion Bhoda, two members of the Black Ajah. As Nynaeve battles the two Darkfriends, a Gholam attacks the other members of the party. Among those killed are Janira, Nalesean, Melore, Mendair and five of the Band's Redarms. After the fights, which result in the capture of Ispan, Elayne retrieves the Bowl of the Winds from a storeroom. Also taken from the building are numerous ter'angreal and angreal that had been stored there by the Kin. [ACOS-H-595]

NOTE: There is a discrepency between events in A Crown of Swords and The Path of Daggers. In A Crown of Swords the Bowl of the Winds is found the day after the Festival of the Birds, and the Feast of Embers is indicated as taking place the day after the discovery of the Bowl. In Chapter 1 of The Path of Daggers, which takes place on the same day that the Bowl is found, the Festival of Birds is said to have taken place two days before, and the Feast of Embers is to be held on the same night as the recovery of the Bowl. There is no logical method by which to reconcile these errors, and in this work the original dates as established in A Crown of Swords will be used.

Taisham 19th: Rand and Min travel via Gateway to the forests outside of Cairhien. Posing as minor Andoran nobles, the two learn that High Lord Darlin Sisnera has joined the rebel Cairhien nobles, and that he plans to marry Lady Caraline Damodred. Among those in the rebel camps are seven Aes Sedai, including Cadsuane, as well as Padan Fain, a companion of Lord Toram Riatin's going by the name Jeraal Mordeth. [ACOS-H-545]

Taisham 19th: Rand accepts an offer to sport with Lord Toram, a blademaster, using practice swords. The display is interrupted by a deadly fog, similar to Aridhol's Mashadar, that surrounds the area. Using balefire to save a woman from the unnatural fog, Rand reveals his true identity. Fain briefly emerges from the fog long enough to slash Rand over the half-healed wound from Toman's Head. [ACOS-H-556]

Taisham 19th • Noon/Early Afternoon: Led by Cadsuane and the surviving Aes Sedai, Min, Caraline, Darlin and an unconscious Rand escape the fog. They make their way to the Sun Palace, where Flinn, an Asha'man with Healing abilities, stabilizes Rand's condition. Like the wound below it, the injury caused by Fain refuses to heal completely. [ACOS-H-566]

Taisham 19th: A group of Aes Sedai, Kinswomen and Atha'an Miere agree to take the Bowl of the Winds to the Kin's farm outside of Ebou Dar. Mat and a group of his Redarms stay behind to search for Olver, who has gone missing. [ACOS-H-611]

Taisham 19th: Travelling via a gateway, the Aes Sedai, including Elayne and Nynaeve, several Kinswomen, twenty Atha'an Miere, as well as Lan, Birgitte and Aviendha, arrive in a clearing located miles to the north of Ebou Dar. Fearing that the residue of her weaves might be detected, Aviendha picks the weaves of the gateway apart. [TPOD-H-63]

Taisham 19th: Moridin, watching Aviendha and the others pass through the gateway, learns that the group carries the Bowl of the Winds. Also aware of the group's journey to the north is a gholam, which sets off in pursuit on orders of its master. [TPOD-H-82]

Weaves of both saidar and saidin spread forth from the Bowl and travel in all directions, but there is no immediate change in the weather. [TPOD-H-126]

Taisham 19th • Afternoon: Channelers of the One Power from as far away as Ghealdan see the lace of saidar and saidin travel across the skies. [TPOD-H-160]

Taisham 19th • Afternoon: Shortly after the Bowl of the Winds is used, Seanchan raken attack the Kinswomen's farm. [TPOD-H-130]

Taisham 19th: While searching for Olver, Mat witnesses the arrival of a Seanchan fleet in Ebou Dar's bay. Seanchan ground and air forces quickly invade the city. Caught in a Seanchan attack on a group of Ebou Dari soldiers, Mat is trapped under the rubble of a collapsing building. [ACOS-H-619]

Taisham 19th • Late Afternoon: Fleeing from an expected Seanchan attack, Elayne opens a gateway to a location in Andor near the isolated Hornwell estate. Along with those who had traveled to the farm from Ebou Dar, Elayne's group includes additional Kinswomen, as well as nobles seeking the protection of Aes Sedai. Sending the group away, Elayne stays behind with Aviendha and Birgitte to unravel the gateway's weave. As Seanchan attack the farm and begin emerging from the gateway into Andor, the gateway collapses and explodes. Lan and Nynaeve return to lend aid to the three women's injuries, and the small group sets off for the Hornwell Estate. [TPOD-H-141-390]

Aes Sedai Galina Casban, a captive of Therava's, is given over to Sevanna. Galina, accused of the murder of Desaine, is declared da'tsang, a despised one, by three Wise Ones. [ACOS-H-626]

Taisham 20th: Six days after their last encounter with the Shaido, Sammael and Graendal arrive at Sevanna's camp. Sammael gives Sevanna a ter'angreal capable of forcing female channelers to hold to a promise.

Unknown to the Forsaken, their activities are watched by Shadar Haran. [ACOS-H-630]

Rand leads this group through a gateway and into the Square of Tammuz in Illian. [ACOS-H-645]

Taisham 21st • Night: Along with Trollocs and Myrddraal, Rand finds Liah, an Aiel Maiden left behind during a previous visit to the ancient city, within the walls of Shadar Logoth. Nearly falling through a collapsed stone floor, Rand is rescued by a mysterious man. Both men use balefire to defend themselves against Mashadar, but Rand does not detect the use of saidin. Rand's benefactor, unknown to him as Moridin, the reincarnation of Ishamael's soul, quickly disappears. [ACOS-H-654]

Taisham 21st • Night: Rand uses balefire to kill Liah as she is attacked by Mashadar. Sweeping the balefire towards Sammael's last known position, Rand finds the Forsaken gone, and in his place the spreading mist of Mashadar. Assuming Sammael to be dead, Rand returns to Illian. [ACOS-H-660]

Mazrim Taim arrives at the Sun Palace and reports the desertion of Gedwyn, Rochaid, Peral Torval and Kisman. Fedwin Morr, his mind inexplicably reduced to that of a child's, is compassionately put to death by Rand, who immediately prepares to leave the palace with Min. [TPOD-H-570]

Faile, in a group consisting of Alliandre, Maighdin, Bain, Chiad, Berelain and various guards, occupies herself with hawking in the woods outside Abila. Shortly after she receives news from Cha Faile of Masema's possible involvement with the Seanchan, Faile's group is attacked by a group of Shaido Aiel. Parelean of the Cha Faile is killed, and Faile, Bain, Chiad, Maighdin, Alliandre, Arrela Shiego and Lacile Aldorwin are captured and made gai'shain. [TPOD-H-583]

Having completed their month-long stop, and their novice ranks swelled to almost one-thousand women, Egwene and the rebel Aes Sedai prepare to march on Tar Valon. A large gateway is created by thirteen sisters, and through this Egwene and her forces move onto a plain next to Dragonmount. [TPOD-H-586]
