Default LA Ermor\'s dominion effect

I'll start off by apologizing if this has been answered elsewhere, but I wasn't able to find anything with search.

I know Ashen Empire's dominion kills population down to zero if allowed to progess that far, but will population return after the dominion is replaced with a more positive dominion, or is emrmors land doomed to be a barren wasteland forever?

Pretty much doomed I believe. There are events which move people around and effect population. And if you have growth scales, preach hard, etc then you can get some back. But the chances of getting enough to be worth taxing before the game is over is rather slim. Even in my games (1500 provinces and lasting a year) doesnt see much recovery.

Thank you for the immediate response. I am playing on a large map, but I'll keep that in mind. I guess it's wine and broth for my troops.

Growth scale's population growth is relative to existing population, and by default it's pretty low, so if a population is massively depleted you can pretty much forget about it unless it's an extremely long game. So yes, bring supply items, and use NNE summons.

You *could* move an S9 mage there and Wish for population, which IIRC grabs them from another province just as if a migration event happened. This isn't normally a good use of 100 pearls, 'tho.
