For that period, yes.

I thought he retired to Korioni lands.

Nope. It was founded in 578 or thereabouts, 150 years before Paslac's empire fell.

Hard to tell. After the Gbaji Wars, the trolls controlled the traffic routes, but then there were Heortlings (Vastolf son of Quivin) in charge in Dara Happa during Ordanestyu's reign. In Ralios it might have been spread with Arkat's followers crossing the Rockwoods. Although I wouldn't use this as advertisement in East Ralios... Maybe the fact that Talor was returned by Harmast's second quest helped.

If great Urox doesn't show it's chaos, it can't be?

Anyway: how much chaos do the Delelans have to worry about?
