The Heortlings pulled out. The Dorastan and Talastari Orlanthi remained in
the project, led by Lokamayadon.

Loky's defeat occurred only after Arkat had liberated Kerofinela.

I'd guess that quite a number of EWF Orlanthi fled the Pass region after
1042, and again after 1100 when the Golden Horde slowly advanced across the
land. Many ended up in North Esrolia or modern day Heortland (only to have
their able-bodied men mustered and marched against the horde under the OOO's
command). Others may have fled to Aggar (quite early freed by Alakoring) or
north into Saird before the Horde formed, and may have been part of that
horde. IMO the Dragonkill cost the life of about half the people still
living in EWF lands after 1042 (of course a generation later), whose numbers
had already diminished as entire clans or even tribes had ascended into
dragonhood.
