Possible Allies with a Possible Quest


18, Fifthover, Dragon's Agitation, 190th Kings Age, Sun Descending
Yaotl is awoken by Aloria, who is dressed and carrying her backpack. Yaotl looked at her, confused.
"I have to go." Aloria whispered.
"Why?" Yaotl asked.
Aloria shook her head, "I cannot stay here, I have things that must be done. Private things."
Yaotl nodded, "Very well. Just remember that you are always welcome here."
Aloria nodded, turned, and walked out of the door.
Ren continued to stare at the compass as Tamar interjected, "I don't think there's much you can do about the portals at this point in time."
Ren nodded in agreement.
Tamar whispered, "The Elemental Lords believe I spend too much time here, so I do not know when I will return. Also, there is a battle coming and I must be ready for it."
Wind swirled around him, forming braces, grieves, and a breast plate. A portal open beside him.
"Farewell and good luck." Tamar said as he stepped through the portal.
Ren looked at the compass again, then Aziza took it from him. She looked it over and then handed it back. They both laid back down and relaxed.
Yaotl, meanwhile, got up and began cooking breakfast for Nora, Basheera, and himself.
Why do we let the Fire Cleric cook our food?

As he was cooking, he heard someone shouting outside. He couldn't make out the words, but it sounded angry. He stepped outside to investigate.

Book Review - "The Way of Kings" by Brandon Sanderson

Being a Wheel of Time and Mystborn fan, I recently got to meet Brandon Sanderson and pick up a copy of "The Way of Kings." It's book one of the Stormlight Archive and is 1,001 pages long.
Cover Art, without all those pesky words.
I will try to review it, without giving away any spoilers. It is a fantasy novel that takes place in a medieval-like setting, but does not take place on Earth. That's not a spoiler, by the way.
