Mine is murky, but I was designed the Expert for what that's worth. Better, I do have Broken Council Guidebook.

Most importantly, I got permission to post a Ralian excerpt at <>, which includes "A clan of women named the Yelornans also lives in the lowlands. They are warrior women who name themselves Enerali, but claim descent from none of Eneral's four sons."

There's a related mention in Tradetalk #3.

Off the top of my head, I can't remember how a group of Yelornans made it to Prax. Perhaps they were employed as mercenaries for Arkat.

Probably no Yelmalio at all there (though I believe an EWF Sun Dome temple remained intact and is a center of variant Elmal worship).
