When do you think these cities were abandoned? After the Closing or
the Early Third Age are good possibilities. Of course outsiders will
be interested in the ruins.

However Yellow elves do not dominate the forsts like the other elves
do. Although they may be strong in Sacred Groves in and around the
cities, I do think that the ruined cities would be occupied by bands
of twisted evil hsunchen who have grown strong on the auras of eldritch
magics that permeates the very air. These foul creatures are the
unnatural leaders of the Beastmen. Of course looking at some of the
demons of Indian Mythology may be helpful (and avoid TSRfied versions
where possible!).

Although 'twas Sandy's idea, the Teshnans call such payments a stipend.
Such terminology implies that the Elfs are Vassals. Of course the
Teshnans have no cause for complaint as these vassals do an exemplary
job of keeping the Evil Cannibal Two-headed Horse Demons of Kralorela
from besmirching the land of Teshnos.
