The major trouble with Umathela is the disconnect between what we know
about it at the Dawn (Lascerdans, Elves) and what we know about it in
the Storm Age (Vadeli Kingdom). The dots don't join up.
My best theory about the elves so far is that Umathela was settled in
the Dawn Age by elves from Fonrit against a background of ecological
violence between the yellows, greens and browns.
The Lascerdans are trickier. About the best I can think of is as
settlers from Porlaso.
