Zolan Zubar probably lost his importance when the Kitori were crushed by Palangio's invasion. As the principal wargod of the Kitori, his followers will have died en masse...

Actually, Varonal Zor was the guy I meant, tje character in the Freeform, and the ancestor invoked by the re-founder. Varzor Kitor is the founder. I didn't have my sources with me when writing from work...

It appears the Kitori became the dominant tribe in northern Heortland already slightly earlier, or Colymar's Black Spear clan would have had to pay tribute to other clans or tribes as well.

The defeat of the OOO will have caused some damage to the Kitori - the Lead Hills and the Dammed Marsh probably cover some of their former territory. The devastation of the Shadow Plateau with the fine-ground black dust from Akez Loradak (Obsidian Palace) too will have necessitated some migrations.

Do you think that the Second Age Kitori still lived on the Shadow Plateau?
