Mardecin is a small town in Amadicia.
There is a garrison of the Children of the Light in the town.
Mardecin has fallen on hard times as many of the shops are closed. When Nynaeve al’Meara, Elayne Trakand, Thomdril Merrilin and Juilin Sandar are traveling through Amadicia, they stop and camp outside of Mardecin. Nynaeve and Elayne walk into Mardecin to buy supplies. Once in the town, Nynaeve recognizes an emergency signal of the Yellow Ajah outside a dressmaker’s shop. Upon entering Ronde Macura’s shop, Nynaeve gives the proper phrases to hear the message. Ronde Macura, however, was under orders to find and capture Elayne. Ronde doses both women with forkroot tea, blocking them from saidar, and ties them up. Luckily, Thom and Juilin rescue the women and the four buy a coach and leave Mardecin.
