Sartarites are Heortlings, so are the people of Whitewall (Hendriki... Heortling... and the like).
Pavites are decendants of Sartarites and Praxians (among others). So this makes sense.
Pavis is surrounded by Praxians, so a Prax book also makes a lot of sense.

Grazelanders, Ethilrists band, Tarsh, and Beast Valley would be the next obvious ones to choose (start with Sartar and them describe the surrounding areas and cultures, and than the ones that surround them etc.).

At that point it COULD be a nice idea to open a second front (from where they also could go exploring the neightboring areas and cultures). Obviously it would be a good idea to make this second starting area further away, than say The Lunar Empire or Kethaela. Kralorela or Seshnela would be a good choice.
And since Moon Design has already three manuscripts about Malkioni lands in hand, that could be a good idea to go with.

But thats all only in my humble opinion.

Whatever the official line will do: The future for Glorantha seems to become a great one!
