Don't forget the White Tower, which BS has confirmed is still not out of the plot picture (Mesaana, and Egwene's unfulfilled dreams).

And shadowy blood suicide assassin type people are still running around there, as well.

Maybe one of the Bloodknives will be Egwene's Seanchan woman with a sword. Would explain the wavering face...

No doubt where she's stashed Asmodean's body.

I will give you half credit, since you made me think of it via proximity. Anyway, it was brought to our attention that at least one of them was a woman, and the one Bryne killed was a man.

Towers, mentioned so far include:

- Seanchan's Towers of Midnight, a complex of political prisons
- Black Tower, in Caemlyn for Taim's Asha'man
- White Tower, in Tar Valon
- Cairhien topless Towers
- nameless Stone Tower, in former Aridhol (tEoW, Chapter "Wolfbrother")
- Tower of Gheneji, pathway to the Aelfinn & Eelfinn
- Moridin's little Black Tower, in the very far east, north a bit of Shara (tGS book Prologue)
- The Stone, in Tear is the tallest Tower for miles and miles around
- Seven Towers of Malkari
- Illian's own series of tall Bell Towers, which Rand once hide in during the attack on Sammael
- Arafel's Shol Arbela, the 'City of Ten Thousand Bells' surely has famous Towers?
- Possibly a tall Tower in Rhuidean, or maybe not?

Isn't Bela's stable a part of the 'White Tower' now?

Bah! It was a "solid face" Egwene Dreamed of a Seanchan woman with a sword over her shoulder on that mountain....

Both books of prophecy have since evolved, and by all indications, the Seanchan one in a more self-glorifying way.
I don't think that's the case. I think we're probably looking at two different volumes of prophecy here - the Karatheon, which was brought by Hawkwing, and the Essanik, which was composed entirely in Seanchan. They might be combined into one volume, like the Old and New Testaments, but my guess is that they're otherwise distinct.
