Saul

After speaking with Xavier for a while, Saul begins to remember things about his past. Things Xavier says about his own past - details about building architecture, food, and so on - cause Saul to have small recollections and confirm his suspicions that he might be from the same general area that Xavier is from. After speaking with Xavier about this specifically, Saul hears a city name - Sanse Alea - that strikes a chord. He remembers short bursts of things - houses, storefronts, streets, restaurants - and has a strong feeling that Saul either is originally from Sanse Alea or spent a considerable amount of time there. Saul also associates his memories of the willowy blonde from the Alease-delivered message (the one he thinks is named something like Nali or Nalia) with Sanse Alea.

Future Travels

X and M want to head out after recovery; Marius offers to take party up to 600ish miles when they all leave
F will come with party, at least for a while - doesn't want to travel alone. Was originally desperate to get back to warn aelphin about what he'd found, but once convinced messages have been sent already is more willing to travel with the party and help how he can
