The whole world doesn't end with that scenario, just kyonin.

The Dark elf thing is much smaller than the original aboleth thing

If I drop a meteor capable of wiping out France, it's just silly to assume that nobody else is going to take any damage.

So. Many. Jokes....

the whole world would gain something without france, and in golarion, halflings would become a much more popular choice with all the elves gone... so again a win win for everyone who is NOT the target of falling rocks.

A good point! I think you'll find that we halflings are like cockroaches; you couldn't get rid of us if you tried. ;)

so new ending to the story, rocks fall, halflings multiply! (what's IN those rocks? fertilizer??)

if Pathfinder Comics exists long enough, maybe we will start seeing wacky things like this!

Pathfinder #999: Runegiants Vs. Serpentfolk Vs. Dark Elves Vs. Zon Kuthons's Horde Vs. Xin himself!

To comment on Adivion being stuck at Gallowspire - while Adivion himself would have a limited range of action, the various lieutenants of Tar-Baphon that would be checking in on Gallowspire would have no such limitations. Adivion's call to arms would result in a massive number of CR 17+ demons and undead rising up across Ustalav, who would readily subjugate the land and begin the process of hunting down the Great Seals.

Weirdly enough, I could see the Ustalavic county of Barstoi remaining as the barrier between Ustalav and the Worldwound, as Barstoi is a really horrible place in its own right and may well be left alone.

Once Adivion's forces took Caliphas they'd be able to engage Lastwall on multiple fronts. Once they took Versex county they'd be neighbors with Razmir. It'd be the Dm's discretion as to whether Adivion could win Razmir's allegiance with an offer of lichdom. Either way, war with the River Kingdoms will soon follow.

Second Darkness blotting out the sun would work well to Adivion's advantage - Lord Malyas and his vampire army could roam at will, adding ever more to their numbers. Elvanna turning the world into an ice cube wouldn't be quite as useful, but still wouldn't hinder Adivion in the slightest.

Once the seals are gathered and Tar-Baphon's actually freed from Gallowspire, very little could be done. Ydersius could sort of fight Tar-Baphon (amusingly enough, Ydersius's big thing is that he's incredibly toxic and has mind control abilities, which is kind of useless against Tyrant and his undead horde), but if Ydersius is busy subjugating Garund it'll be centuries before they ever met.

Ileosa, Karzoug, and Elvanna would have considerably more to worry about. The gap between Tar-Baphon and the AP final bosses is huge - Mhar or some other Great Old One (or a really powerful rune lord, like Sorshen) waking up would simply mean the arrival of someone in Tar-Baphon's weight class.

I'm putting my money on Rasputin.

Second Darkness happening is probably the most damaging scenario. To quote from Descent into Midnight that I happened to finish reading today, if Alkevrah wins:

"the falling star strikes true and destroys Kyonin... And many of the neighbouring nations. The darkness created by the explosion as ash is hurled into the sky blots out the sun for months, triggering a terrible death of plant life and animal life across Golarion"

Effectively, the majority of people still alive a year later will be those with acess to create food and water. Second darkness isn't as massive a disaster as the first, but that's only because First Darkness is an event that by all rights should have turned Golarion into a lifeless hulk.
