>Were there ever Hsunchen here (apart from Basmoli)?

No.

>Could there be things hanging around from these previous populations?

The nearest remants of the Pure Horse are the Pol Joni who are some
way away. One would met nomads in Sun County but mostly as raiders
from the outside. No giants are known of in Sun County.

If it was, it would have been looted long ago.

>The Solitude of Testing was a time when there was a big troll dominance

The Uz dominated the _Big_Rubble_ not Sun County. They could raid but
they never took over Sun County.

>Going to the current day I have a problem in not having this Giant

Get a copy of Mad Prax beyond Thunderdome available from MOB's
webpage.

>I notice that Yelmalions don't get on with dwarves. It would seem to me

Dwarves are anathema simply because they hang around in Dark Places.
The Yelmalions are simply too thick to understand why they are not
darkness creatures.

>I don't quite understand why some nomads are friendly to Yelmalions, and
>some hostile. Is it just a per-clan/tribe/family thing?

Some nomads are light worshippers like the Ostrich people, the Unicorn
Women and the Bright Treasure Worshippers among the Five Tribes. They
would see the people of the Sun Dome Temple as being kindred spirits
even if they don't speak Praxian. Other nomads simply consider Sun County
as non-praxian and just raid them.

>Is there any kindred between Griffins and lions or Basmoli?

No link exists between the Basmoli and the Griffins. Perhaps an
EWF cult did exist for the Basmoli but that was long ago.
