Calinam wrote the book Among the Darkeyed, which appears to be a compilation of darkeye folktales.[1] During the course of her research, Princess Jasnah Kholin noted that this book contained many mentions of Oathgates and instantaneous travel. It seems likely that this served as a piece of evidence for Jasnah that Stormseat might still have a functioning Oathgate connected to Urithiru.[2]

After the loss of the Wind's Pleasure, Brightlady Shallan Davar discovered the mentions of Oathgates from Among the Darkeyed in Jasnah's notes.[3] This helped her to realize that Jasnah had likely been looking for an Oathgate on the Shattered Plains.
