Somewhere in Fronela - southern Oranor, or some area still under the Ban? A
port just south of Winterwood?

Elf overlords are also possible in Vralos (in Umathela, with brown elf
rulers), or Maslo (yellow elves), or unknown ("Blank Land"...) Lalia in
Ralios (Erontree is nearby, and the elves might give protection against
Guhan), or forgotten cities in Jrustela (big choice: Vadeli or brown elf
overlords), or jungle-encased cities in Fethlon.

The Amber Coast on the Elf Sea didn't seem so oppressive, but who knows
about other parts in that region? (New Lolon Gospel 2...) The entire Arcos
region is _dominated_ by horse barbarians, but populated by peoples who knew
cities even before the Pentans knew stirrups.

Even western Peloria might yield such (small) places - Arir seems to have
potentially elf-populated forests northwest of Yolp, and Anadikki might as
well. TFS tells of Reforestation attempts in the Second Age. Why not later
as well? Lunar bureaucrats with leaves instead of hair?
