  1. Disclaimer: The first part (everything that i've posted as of 9/27/19) is purely from an academic standpoint and does not reflect the actual rules and requirements of the Bond in the PSW. Upon eventual completion of this post, I will have a definitive list of the Bonding rules and restrictions when it comes to using Saidin to Bond in the PSW. ~ So, you’re an Asha’man and you’re thinking about Bonding someone, eh? Or perhaps just a curious, male Wilder looking to widen the breadth of their knowledge? Well you’ve come to the right place. Bondings are a complicated business and not as simple as those Aes Sedai make it out to be. This resource is meant for Saidin channeling men, but it may be useful for those of you who wield Saidar. Let’s take a look at what we know…. And yes, there is a Bibliography at the bottom of this post... What is Bonding? According to the WoT fandom Wiki (1)… According to the WoT Companion (2)... In my humble opinion, Bonding can be used as an umbrella term for all of the different types of manufactured psychic and physical connections we have seen that involve the Power in the series. We can assume that each Weave is different depending on the gender of the Channeler and the features of the Bond being woven. Traditionally, however, when you hear the word Bonding, it will more than likely be referring to the Wot Companion’s definition. In the main series, it was Taril Canler, an Andoran Dedicated, that discovered how to Bond his wife with a Spirit link similar to the Aes Sedai/Warder Bond. The initial function of this Bond was to remain connected to one's partner when apart. Indeed, this form of the Bond conveyed at least two of the same properties as the Aes Sedai version of the bond: Sensing each other's locations/general direction, and the emotional and physical state of each other. (3) This Bond was later altered by the Asha'men for use upon the Aes Sedai. A small layer of Compulsion was added into this Bonding Weave so that the Aes Sedai (or any individual) was compelled to comply with the demands of the man that held the Bond. Robert Jordan spoke on length about this at the KoD Signing (4) on 10/24/05... The main series does not address whether or not this version of the Bond (we shall call it the Wife Bond) bestows the same benefits of the Warder Bond. It can be inferred that during the course of the main series, this type of Bond does not provide those benefits due to the reasoning the Asha'men had for Bonding their Wives and Aes Sedai. We never saw an instance of two Asha'men bonding each other, nor an instance of an Asha'man bonding a non-Channeling man. Under those circumstances involving two men, it is feasible that the Bond may be altered to bestow the traditional Warder Bond benefits due to the nature and purpose of the Asha'men. Another curiosity with the Wife Bond is the lack of the Death Rage that Warders feel at the passing of their Aes Sedai. None of the wives of the Asha'men were shown to endure this at the men's death. With the above information, it can be assumed that the Wife Bond is a completely separate weave from the Warder Bond. At the CoT Signing (5) on 01/28/03, a fan asked if it were possible for an Aes Sedai to preform the Wife Bond and Robert Jordan said this on the matter... Taking this into consideration, we can also assume that the Asha'men can preform the Warder Bond if they learned the weaves. In theory, one could even manipulate the weaves for either Bond to change the effects and benefits of the Bond. For instance, one could alter the Wife Bond to include some or all of the Warder Bond benefits. <<<Under Construction as of 9/27/19>>> Works Cited: https://wot.fandom.com/wiki/Bonding Jordan, Robert, et al., editors.

  3. Is anybody interested in teaching my BT char healing? I assume only dedicated and asha'aman know this but at this point I'll even accept a yellow trying to explain with saidar
  4. Ful took directions from the Dedicated directing traffic at the road junction, and left the main thoroughfare by a flight of steps that led him down onto a walled path by the creek. The deep green creek surged through a deep, man-made channel. He made his way to an archway overlooking the make-shift canal further along the wall. It was one of two side entrances to one of the farm’s kitchens and tired, hungry looking locals hung around the entrance. Soldiers and civilians alike were fed here, side by side. Earlier on, this soup kitchen had been started by one of the more sympathetic asha’aman who could not bare to see the misery of civilians and hanger-ons that populated the surrounding countryside. He converted his house on the farm into a charity with an irrigated garden in the back. Ful adjusted his satchel of herbs and berries he foraged from the woods this morning. “Uhm, I have some fresh ingredients - where should I take this?” He asked, striding into the sun-lit space and finding some men scrubbing the tables and setting out clean bowls. “In the back there,” came the reply from one of the harried looking volunteers. People were coming into the long, arched eating hall all the time, mostly locals who needed a meal, and it was hard to keep track of faces and names. Ful Haert ~ another pair of hands

  6. In interest of fulfilling the Reds' agreement with the Black Tower to bond Asha'man, I'm looking to bond a Warder with my character Jagen. She was previously bonded by Aslan/Jakar, but his writer seems to have left DM. So I was given permission to dissolve that bond, which I did ICly by having Jagen and Aslan pass the bond(s) to an NPC Red. Jagen does have interest in being bonded to an Asha'man, however, and not just in interest of keeping her word to do so. Those who wish to bond need to be willing, of rank, and of course, not bonded already. :)
  7. It had been an adventurous few days and being back at the Farm with nothing particularly strange going on Nox found himself more at ease. He knew the anxiety would be there later. It always was, but right now he was at ease. He was home. Adrim was not far away if he was needed. Part of Nox's job was to teach gateways. He wasn't the best at it. Certainly others showed more promise, but he had the ability to make larger gateways. It was one of the few things he was proud of. Being an Asha'man was his only accomplishment. Today he had a few students. They were picking up the basics. Skimming and Traveling two different things. Sometimes you got both other times you just didn't do any and had to rely on others. Nox could do either. There was already his habit of knowing an area inside out before he stuck down roots of any kind even if they'd be shallow. It had helped him learn skimming at first, but Nox soon realized he knew many more places and with only a little bit of effort Nox was memorizing placed he'd been and could gate anywhere that he'd studied. Nox took the time each time he went to a new place to study where the gates would open, or could potentially open. Never anywhere where he could kill someone with an opening gate. Someplace safe. And Nox always looked for those safe places. It was a habit of living on the street for too many years. The lesson was over and the two students were talking to one another with excitement. One of them had managed to open a gateway large enough to walk through. With practice he could do more. The other was still perfecting knowing the area he was in and still couldn't open a skimming gateway. But he showed promise. Nox sat on the fence outside the stable yard watching them talk as they walked away. it had been a good day. The weather was nice and the sun was cooling down now that it was on it's downward path just before nightfall. The long shadows cast were a comfort. Soon the stars would be out and Nox could finally rest. He liked his uneventful day... Except behind the stable was a large explosion, it shook the stone buildings and Nox was on his way around the building to make sure everyone was alright... [[ I have no clue what happened as of yet, but figure I'd start off with a bang. ]]
  8. Just to... have a look around... observe... ask a few innocent questions... :) Anyone available for RP?
  9. Covai scratched the back of this neck as he let the gateway close behind him. Sneaking out of Tar Valon and the White Tower was getting harder and harder. Having a ball of emotions knawing at the back of his mind didn't make things either. Covai knew his Aes Sedai would have some rather sharp words for him when he got back, but he had other duties to attend to as opposed to sitting on his arse. Wait...his Aes Sedai. Covai shuddered at how familiar the situation had become to him. Still, he had agreed to the bonding, and he'd just have to live with the consequences. He even had a mock bet with Arath which would claim him first. Madness from the taint, or madness from dealing with Aes Sedai everyday. Leaving the travelling grounds, Covai decided he'd walk around the tower grounds for a bit. He had visited the grounds through Tel'Aran'Rhiod whilst at the White Tower, but there had only been a week or two that had past since the battle with Brent. Things seemed to take longer to appear when you expected to see then in Tel'Aran'Rhiod, and the dreamworld was unreliable enough as it was. Still, he was glad to see the tower had gotten back into the usual swing of things. Dodging past some children running in the street, Covai allowed a small grin to grace his lips. There was something about the laughter of children around the Black Tower that brought a nice contrast to the place. When you were prepared...or at least expected to die each day, you quickly learnt to appriciate the small things where you could. The brief reprise was broken by a salute and a serious look from a familiar face. Covai returned the salute and waited. "Well Nakor, what can I do for you?"
  10. Stepping through to the Stone of Tear, Covai still felt it wierd to open a gateway inside of a building. There were lamps lit in the small room they were in, and he could still see the light coming from the sun at the Black Tower coming through the open gateway, but there was something just odd about it. Perhaps it was the smaller room for error indoors. Running his fingers through his hair as he pushed the door to the main corridor open, Covai had to remind himself to focus on what was important. The two Asha'man on guard outside released the source when they recognised the Storm Leader attire Covai wore. One of them looked familiar, but Covai couldn't say if he had met the other man before. Stepping out of the door way so the others could exit the room, Covai returned the salute he was given. "Tell me Asha'man, is the Lord Dragon in Tear at the moment?" OOC: Another chance to jump in here. If the new person can just take us to a waiting room/audience chamber to wait for the Dragon, I'll take it from there will my reply. Any extra new people can join us in the room (if they haven't already)
  11. Fixing the dragon and sword pins to his collar, Covai glanced himself over in the mirror. Truth be told he was more comfortable in his usual tunic and leggings, but there wasn't much in the way of comfort to be had this day. He probably was already mad, going to ask a figure from legends for permission to unite with people who had hunted them down for thousands of years. Running his fingers through his hair, the Storm Leader let out a sigh. The wheel had already started to turn. The best he could to was run at it head on to bump it in the right direction. Grabbing his sword from against the chair where he had left it, Covai fastened it to his waist as he left the room. Pausing for a moment for place a ward around the doorway, he wondered just how long it would be until he was back. Truth be told, he wasn't even sure where to look for the Dragon. The best he knew was that the Asha'man in Tear might know something about his where abouts. It was their main recruiting point, and it was also home to the Cache of Angrael and Ter'angrael, including the Sa'angrael Callandor. Still, there was something to be done before he even left. Even before the M'hael's quarters came into sight, Covai could already feel the change in the atmosphere. Word had spread between the Storm and Attack Leaders about what had happened at Sheinar. Some had been called back for today for this meeting, but not all could be spared from their usual duties. Covai's eyes scanned the crowd for Arath as he made is way towards Brent' quarters, the crowd parting before him. Covai knew he has a reputation for unusual for a Storm Leader for his laid back attitude, and most seemed to realise if he was dressed formal it was safer to just stay away. Even so, he still couldn't spot his Andoran ally. Perhaps the man was already inside. This damn Illianer was bad enough to deal with at the best of times. What Covai had planned would hardly make it any easier. Going one on one with the M'hael wasn't something he was looking forward this morning. Raising his arm in time to stop the door slamming him in the face as it opened, Covai felt the impact as the Asha'man running out bounced backwards off the door. Without saying anything, Covai simply opened the door and stood in the doorway looking at the man. "You should watch where you're going." Covai reprimanded the man. "But besides that, whatever you're doing can wait for a moment. Take me to Brent and let him know Storm Leader Covai Seriba is here to speak with him" OOC: First one in gets the spot.
  12. A strong wind flowed through the abandoned field, a little to the west of Fal Moran. The wind carried the heavy stench of smoke, of battle, of death. The peaceful appearance of the field was at a stark contrast with the rest of the dying country of Shienar. No matter which direction one travelled, they would soon find the ravaging hordes of shadowspawn. The trollocs and Fades pressed on relentlessly, killing many lucky ones, capturing the not so lucky. Only the most blood curdling screams reached this far, and even then only as faint whispers. A sudden flash of light disrupted the quiet of the field, as a shimmery blue line appeared and began to rotate into a hole in the air. Within moments, dozens of similar lines appeared, each opening in turn to offer the same scene. Dozens of black coated men, all with swords strapped to their belts, and many with silver or gold pins at their necks. Once the gateways had snapped open, the men poured through the holes in the air. The Asha'man had arrived in dying Shienar, intent upon saving the borderlander nation. ~~~ Arath led the charge through the gateways with his attack group. One hundred Soldiers, Dedicated, and Asha'man streamed through the portals onto the plains of Shienar, just outside Fal Moran. He quickly ordered his men into defensive positions while the remaining forces came through. It appeared as though the immediate area was safe enough, but if there were any dreadlords nearby they surely would have sensed the use of so much Saidin. Arath scanned the horizon, face palling some. Smoke rose in great pillars in countless places to the north, east, and west. Even from Fal Moran there was a great billowing black cloud arising, though it looked as though men still fought to keep the city from falling. No attack immediately fell upon the Asha'man though, and soon four hundred men of the Black Tower and their supplies had all passed through the gateways. The Asha'man fell into ranks, quietly whispering to eachother about their bleak surroundings. Arath took one last look at Fal Moran returning his attention to his men. It would begin soon. Light willing many of them would live through it.
  13. It began as a normal enough day. Normal for the Black Tower anyway. The regular rythem of explosions sounding at the training grounds went almost unnoticed by the inhabitants of the Farm as they went about their daily business. Soldiers carrying various items around on invisible flows of air, the wives of Asha'man carrying their own loads, children running and yelling while they engaged in whatever game came to them at the moment ... the usual pace of life. The silvery rotating slash that appeared in mid air at the traveling grounds also caused little comment as it rotated open, revealing a hole in the air. What poured out though, was enough to send rumors stirring througout the small city known as the Farm. Four men in black coats came running out of the gateway, almost before it had finished revolving open. Bourne between two of them on an invisible platform was a fifth man who bled profusely from a gaping wound in his torso. Immediately, two of them men bearing golden dragon pins at their collars sped off down the road toward the large hall where the M'Hael resided, while the other two sped off toward the infirmary, bearing the fifth man with them. None of the onlookers could say for certain where the group had come from, but they all saw the billowing flames and rolling plumes of smoke beyond the gateway, just before it snapped shut. ~~~ "You do be certain?" said M'Hael Brent Enios after he heard the report of the Asha'man. He had his back turned to the pair of them, steadying himself on the window sill, and trying to digest this horrible turn of events. "Yes Sir," confirmed Asha'man Daevis Thelandran. "I come from Shienar myself, and never have I seen such a horde as this. With the war between the borderlander nations, they can't hope to turn the shadowspawn aside, especially if there were dreadlords among them. I fear that Shienar will be over run in a matter of days. Perhaps Arafel as well. We heard rumors before the attack arrived of major trouble along their blight border as well." Brent grimaced in revulsion. The recruiting party in the north of Shienar had been fortunate, or unfortunate, enough to be present as the greatest host of shadowspawn since the trolloc wars had descended from the blight. The five of them had been no match for the sheer numbers that had overwhelmed them. They had been unable to save anyone, barely escaping with their own lives. Only moments ago a message had arrived with the news that the injured member of the party had died, unable to survive the rigors of healing. Taking a deep breathe to steady himself, Brent turned back to the Asha'man. "Bring me the Storm Leaders and Attack Leaders. We do be needing to plan this out. And be notifying the Asha'man to assemble at the training grounds in one hour. The Black Tower do be headed to war." OOC: Everyone who is coming, post your arrival at the training grounds, share rumors, whatever. I'll get the next post up in a few days, and then we'll move on to the North boards. Remember, as per Jocelyn's promise several months ago, anyone who participates up till the bitter end will be awarded a bonus strength point (upon reaching Asha'man rank anyway :D)
  14. With the ever-increasing number of recruits coming in to The Farm each day those in authority had assigned Nakor the task of teaching a class the very day he'd earned the sword pin marking him as one of the Dedicated. The morning had started off nicely, a small ceremony at sunrise to present the pin and instruct him of his new duties and priveleges. Then he was told that he had a class to teach and the students would be meeting him in a clearing to the southwest of the Tower's central area. As if that wasn't enough, it seemed since it was his first class as instructor there would be an Ashaman observing as well. That was fine with him. Nakor actually worked better under pressure. When all of the students had arrived he began the lesson. "My name is Dedicated Nakor Zorrander. This class will cover the basics of using Saidin as a weapon, both offensively and defensively. We will start with something relatively simple, wards. Wards can be used to do almost anything, you are limited merely by your imagination and ability. Let's see what you can do." Nakor then grasped Saidin, proud of himself at the marked progress he'd made in his time here. Especially in his control of the Taint. He then demonstrated a few simple wards to get the class started and then made his rounds watching and helping the Soldiers work through their own. OOC: Ok, this is lesson one. Be creative with your wards. Feel free to TPC Nakor helping you.
