Dear Aes Sedai …
Are the Tower doors locked at night, or is there still some way out of the Tower? I definitely have no reason to ask this beyond curiosity.
The official answer is that for the safety of everyone who resides and works in the Tower, the doors are definitely locked at night. However, whether they will admit it or not, a fair number of Aes Sedai and Gaidin have fond memories of their time as Novices and Recruits that include sneaking about in some fashion.
I know for a fact that recently a group of Junior Members has been sneaking out of the Tower and across the Gardens late at night. They’re not as clever as they think! To tell you how they got out or what they were up to would give away my own secrets, so you’ll just have to figure that out for yourself. Perhaps if you can find a certain Abandoned Corridor, you’ll discover the answers you seek.
