In the course of developing the Leeha gaz (still crawling along at 1 page every 2-3 weeks), I made Karawenn integrable to the whole of GazF, just not the 1000 AC era.
Basically the Darymen are "Dairymen" - a slang term the semi-nomadic barbarians use to describe their sedentary brethren. One of the western subtribes are the Vanders (< Vanderthan). The modern Vanderthan is a creation of the landrush, post-landrush, in the image of a former barbarian nation allied with the Volospin-era Alphatian colonies.
The Troll Wars are fixed to coincide with the AC 1020 great conflict between humans and humanoids that always was listed in Gaz timelines.
The End of the World is just a canyon/river valley with magical hotspots.
Here is the general timeline I've adopted (based on Havard's work):
