I didn't see any mention of elves, just a return to fertility to Prax. If the Aldryami could have restored fertility to Prax, they would have done it by now. And if the Aldryami did try to take over the Green and Pleasant Prax, the Praxians can always worship Oakfed.

So Prax would become something like Central Asian Steppes? In the Real World, the Great Nomad Empires that emanated from that region didn't go away until after the invention of gunpowder.

Both Pent and the Grazelands are more fertile lands than Prax. The inhabitants don't seem to be losing their customary strictness of their lifestyle.
