## Wars between Magmah and Aquah
In 252 there was a brutal and all-encompasing war between the **Magmah** and **Aquah** schools. What started as a simple disagreement between **Magmah** and **Aquah** escalated into assaults on each other. Both schools enlisted aid from any schools they could and dragged whomever they could into the conflict.
In **252** there was a brutal and all-encompasing war between the **Magmah** and **Aquah** schools. What started as a simple disagreement between **Magmah** and **Aquah** escalated into assaults on each other. Both schools enlisted aid from any schools they could and dragged whomever they could into the conflict.
During the years leading up to the war **Chaosah** grew in strength. They played **Magmah** and **Aquah** against each other and were responsible for escalating a few skirmishes into an all-out war. The fighting spread, and the other schools were dragged into the conflict. **Zombiah** was dragged into the fighting after an attempt from both **Magmah** and **Aquah** to secure more resources to build weapons. **Zombiah** took heavy losses during the attacks and used their magic to animate and re-animate both mechanical constructs and fallen warriors. **Hippiah** tried to stay neutral but in the wake of starvation they caved and used their magic to help supply any who came to them with food and shelter.
Nobody is quite sure why The **High Council of Ah** remained silent for most of the war, but historians point to two significant events that lead to their entry in 254. The first was **Ah** noticing that **Zombiah** was re-animating their fallen warriors in large numbers. The predominant theory explains that such a large reanimation caused a disturbance in the spirit world, and Ah could not help but interfere swiftly to prevent such a disturbance. The second event was **Ah** realizing that **Chaosah** was stoking the fires of this conflict into an all-out war. Worse, they were using their advanced knowledge to poke holes into Hereva itself. The theory holds that The Great Tree of Komona was the last defense against the eventual annihilation of the reality of Hereva, and left unchecked **Chaosah** would poke enough holes in Hereva to cause irreparable harm. Regardless of the true reason **Ah** joined the fighting and immediately went after the witches of **Chaosah**. **Ah** systematically destroyed each witch of **Chaosah** in turn until only Cayenne, Thyme and Cumin remained.

Defiant, Cayenne and Thyme fought the forces of **Ah**. Cumin tried to escape but was picked off. Cayenne held an offensive position while Thyme attempted to summon up reinforcements. Unfortunately Thyme had not planned on the ferocity of **Ah**'s assault, and her spell began to use up the available Rea from the surrounding area. Cayenne was unable to block the power drain and both her and Thyme were ill-prepared for the ensuing rupture that killed them. It took several adepts of **Ah** to try to contain flow of Rea. The Great Tree, unbalanced by the destruction of **Chaosah** spewed Rea throughout Hereva with such force that it blew one of the limbs off of the tree (which later became Kerberos). The resulting shock-wave of Rea from The Great Tree explosion disrupted the rupture long enough for it to seal.

Soon after the treaty **Zombiah** focused on animating constructs and creating stronger materials. It's unclear if **Ah** was responsible for **Zombiah**'s change in focus, or if it became more economical to animate constricts than re-animate the dead. Only those with access to the lock-box know the truth.
## The Present
It's been 14 years since the end of the great war. **Chaosah** continues to triain their heir under the watchful gaze of **Ah**. Magic is once again in balance, and the blight of war is being replaced with rebuilding and renewal. The ruptures created during the war let in a few beings from other worlds, and the burst of magic from The Great Tree has repercussions that are still being discovered. Hereva waits for the next adventures to unfold because Hereva hates boring.
