An Impromptu Lesson on Travel and Locate Weaves

Post by Vaiton » Thu Nov 25, 2021 11:23 pm

From the perspective of Novice Vaiton.

Vaiton made her way through the halls over the the Red Wing.
She knocks on the door, and it opens from the other side.

Vaiton curtseys: ‘greetings Pevari Sedai, Accepted Tolza

Tolza says 'What can I do for you Novice?'

You say 'I made a mistake the other day, and immediately went and spoke with Eldrenia Sedai.'
'As a result I have been tasked to write a report on locate object,life, and travel channel.
'I was instructed to ask an accepted in help doing this, and was instructed to inform Eldrenia
Sedai who I asked to help me.
'How does one write a report for the tower for submission?'

Tolza says 'I would require you to sit through a lesson on the subject.'

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'Do you have time for one?'

Vaiton nods in agreement

Tolza beckons everyone to follow her.

Vaiton follows Tolza.

The 2 make their way past the Gray Wing and head to the Classroom. Tolza closes the door.

Tolza says 'Take a seat.'

Vaiton takes a seat and smiles. 'Yes Accepted Tolza. I am ready’

Tolza says 'Now to be clear, what where Eldrenia Sedai’s instructions?'

'To ensure that it does not, I would like you to write a report on traveling, locate life, and
locate object. Seek out the help of an Accepted to assist you with this task. I thanked her and then was dismissed’

Tolza nods in agreement. 'What where the circumstances of your accident?'

'I used locate life to locate trinket. (done this a few times). Then I traveled to the code but left the []s in the code so it was 'invalid' and took me to the swampy woods. I moved West to get onto the road since it was a very dangerous area for me, then traveled correctly to trinket, looked at who was available and then went straight to Eldrenia to report.’

Tolza nods in agreement.
Tolza says 'Lets visit the mistress of novices.'

You stand up.

Tolza opens the door. And the two head over to the Mistress of Novices’ Study
Tolza says 'So you sensed trinket and traveled to him, but some thing happened causing you to become lost.'

You say 'Yes, That is correct Accepted Tolza'

Tolza says 'Do you have any assumptions of what went wrong?'

You say '[nyhgdfb] is different from nyhgdfb when used in the weave?'

Tolza says 'That is one very common mistake. Any others?'

You say 'The code may have expired and needed a new code?'

Tolza says 'Very good, and when does that happen?'

Vaiton thinks really hard.

Tolza says 'Remember as a novice you are here to learn, I do not expect you to know all the
answers.'

You say 'I believe it is once a month/28 days'

Tolza says 'Very good'

You smile happily.

Tolza says 'What else?'
You say 'That is all I can think of.'

Tolza says 'Lets say you are a blind beggar in a new city.'

You nod in agreement.
Tolza says 'You have never been there before.'
Tolza says 'People walk by ignoring your questions, except for one man.'
You nod in agreement.
Tolza says 'Who tells you that if you go to the alley behind the tavern there is a chest of gold
under a pile of rubbish.'

Tolza says 'How helpful is that information?'

You say 'I mean I know there is gold, but its not very helpful...'
You say 'Because i would be blind and don't know where the tavern is and can't see the rubbish'

Tolza says 'Now this may be a poor one, but it is an analogy between locate life and or object and
travel.'

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'If your skill in locating exceeds your skill in travel… You will find yourself lost'
‘Do you understand my meaning?

You say 'because I am attempting to travel further then I am able?'

Tolza nods in agreement.

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'To put it simply your locate must be lesser than your travel.'

You nod in agreement.
You say 'I will remedy that right away… fixed'

Tolza says 'Tell how skilled where you in travel and locate?'

You say 'before I upped travel it was 72% with object at 76 and life at 73. Travel is now 77'

Tolza nods in agreement.
Tolza says 'With out going in to great detail.'
Tolza says 'The closer you are to some thing and the amount of travel increases the chance of you
will travel right next to it.'

You sense Tolza connecting to the True Source.

You nod in agreement.
You sense Tolza is channeling saidar.

Tolza says 'Locate life lugard'

You nod in agreement.
You feel the flows of saidar coursing through your body.
You begin to weave the appropriate flows...
But lost control. Tried Again… But sensed nobody.
You say 'Nobody around by that name.'

Tolza says 'a member of the Lugard Command - [knemvumeyqulmey] - somewhere very far south of here.'
Tolza says 'locate life (99%)'
Tolza says 'travel (99%)'
Tolza says 'That is close to the limit I can travel south of Tar'Valon.'

Vaiton expresses a shocked look on her face

Tolza says 'Baerlon would be the limit west.'
Tolza says 'Blight would be north'
Tolza says 'Deep into the waste would be e'

You say 'It is basiaclly 2 travels from TV to get anywhere?'

Tolza says 'Yes.'

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'Keep in mind.'
Tolza says 'Traveling in to water rooms is dangerous. '

You say 'Death if I can't swim and have no canoe?'

Tolza says 'From my experience it is imposable to do so, but it will cause you to missport.'

You say 'When you missport, do you normally end up nearby, or can it be completely way off?'

Tolza says 'I have not completely experimented with this theory, so be careful and use caution.'

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'I have found no pattern to it.'

You fall down laughing. ‘Sorry I found that punny’

Tolza says 'Other than the majority of the time it is most uncomfortable. '
Tolza smiles with a twinkle in her eye.
Tolza says 'Locate key.'

You begin to weave the appropriate flows... But lose control.
You begin to weave the appropriate flows
You say 'there is a Myrrdraal very far north of here'

You sense Tolza is channeling saidar.
Tolza says 'Locate potion'
Tolza says 'Do you see a trolloc with draughts vials ext...'

You nod in agreement. ‘There is a trolloc with vials yes Accepted Tolza'

Tolza says 'Locate rare.'

‘That works?’ Vaiton asks surprised.’ I can sense 3 items

Tolza nods in agreement. 'Well they are rare.'
Tolza says 'locate corpse'

You begin to weave the appropriate flows...
You say 'lots of saplings, a couple ravens, a jaguar and some wilted trees'

Tolza says 'the dismembered corpse of a man - [ilemvuthgpidqul] - somewhere very far south of here.?'
Tolza says 'It might be out of your range.'
Tolza says 'What does that corpse tell you?'

You nod in agreement

Tolza says 'the dismembered corpse of a man is a corpse a trolloc has feasted on.'
Tolza says 'So a PC trolloc has killed it and butchered it.'
Tolza says 'SO a trolloc was VFS of here.'

You say 'Oh that is extremely helpful for when I try to avoid them'

Tolza says 'Locate is a very powerful tool to keep an eye on your enemies. '

You nod in agreement

Tolza says 'Lets say you wanted to return to this room, what would you do?'

You say 'I would locate life Sheriam, then travel using the code.'

Tolza nods in agreement.
Tolza says 'Lets say the room was empty, aside from yourself of course'

You begin to weave the appropriate flows...
Tried looking for desk, too many options.
Vaiton thinks very hard then says 'I could leave behind something to locate later? or...'
Locates herself
You say 'I was able to locate life myself... Does this code stay to this room, ie doesn't follow
me?'

Tolza says 'The code always represents the room.'

You nod in agreement

Tolza says 'What changes that rule again?'

You say 'After 1 month passes?'

Tolza smiles with a twinkle in her eye.
Tolza says 'Lets say you do not have locate life.'
Tolza says 'You where the only thing in this room.'
Tolza says 'How would you get the code for this room?'
Tolza says 'Assuming you had locate object.'

You think really hard.
Attempts to locate object on several different items in their bag, but ends up with too many choices
Tolza tugs on Vaiton's dress.
Tolza says 'A item you are wearing or carrying.'

You say 'the more unique it is the better?'

Tolza says 'The less common of an item the less confusing.'
Tolza says 'rest for a tic.'

You sit down and rest your tired bones

Tolza stops using a staff of sungwood.
Tolza hides a staff of sungwood.
Tolza says 'Ok locate sungwood'

Attempts to channel
You say 'my apologies I am too low, may need a couple ticks'

You sit down and rest your tired bones.

Tolza nods in agreement.
Tolza found a staff of sungwood.
Tolza says 'If you can not find an item try turning on notice.'

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'Again, this is some thing I need to experiment with.'

You say 'locate life was not helpful finding Sheriam’s ring or the broom, but I found both walking
around the entire tower with notice on'

Tolza says 'My most important piece of advice to you as a novice.'
Tolza says 'Are you paying attention?'

You say 'Yes I am Accepted Tolza'

Tolza says 'Do not travel until you are Accepted.'

You nod in agreement.
You say 'Jenda Sedai recommended the same thing'

Tolza says 'It is not worth the trouble, Eldrenia Sedai must see potential in you to let you off so
easily. '

You nod in agreement.

Tolza says 'She is very wise, and it is not my place to theories on her objectives.'
Tolza says 'I only say that as an encouragement. '

You say 'She must have. She did say I did the right thing to report it immediately. Possibly that
helped with her lenience?'

Tolza says 'I think you know the answer to that question.'

You say 'Thank you again Accepted Tolza. This is why I came to you. You are very wise yourself'

Tolza stifled a vexed sound.
Tolza says 'No one like a comedian Novice.'
Tolza says 'Now be gone.'

You say ‘Yes Accepted Tolza, thank you again.
Vaiton curtseys to Tolza, and leaves the room.
