 Yes. None published so far save that Alakorings seem to have  larger tribes than Heorlings.

I think the two are linked, weakly linked perhaps. Alakoring set up a system where the Tribal King had more power and was, in consequence, more likely to pass power to his sons and also to *tend* to establish larger tribes. The first Tarsh example of this being Yarandros (KoS p.118). I think Alakoring was suppressing Priest Power which had been responsible to the silliness of the EWF (ie all the priests got inot dragonspeech with disasterous consequence). SO I would also make Alakoringite tribes more anti-dragon.
