Not warriors, but old people and children, the warriors had been spent in the battle of Alavan Argay almost to a man. They went to the Other Side, someplace connected to the Black Net.

As one result, the Grazer tribe was created in Dragon Pass, under the protection of Ironhoof the Centaur.

As a side note:

The Remakers probably would have used humans with great affinity towards horses for their stitching of centaurs. IMO the claim of kinship between the survivors of Alavan Argay and the pain centaurs is quite real, and not just the result of great adoption magic.

BTW, what type of horse breed do the centaur bodies resemble, Seredae or Galana horses?

It isn't sure whether Derek Poljoni discovering the Black Net means that he pulled more survivors of the Pure Horse People .

IMO one Derek Poljoni performed. If he had a hero cult, this or the Jaldon-slaying feat would be the likely benefit.

Derek probably faced Jaldon, but then Jaldon had been his nemesis from childhood on, and he chose that path to lay Jaldon to rest.

IIRC the Black Net was mentioned as one of the troll treasures in discussions about a "Shadows Dance" expansion to Dragon Pass and Nomad Gods. The archives of the Gloranthaboard list (do they still exist?) might have a lead. Anyway, the colour alone suggests a Darkness connection, so darkness obstacles are likely, too.
