Noted for being the longest continious war in human history, the Seven Centuries' War has been credited for being at the time of its ending, one of the bloodiest armed conflicts in history, and condemned for bringing about the horrible culture of hate, war, and violence proudly embraced by the people of Ixania.

The Xona and Xani had migrated to the island of Ixania in 337 BC, and made contact with one another peacefully. However, when the vast wealth of the island was discovered, and the difficulties of surviving on the then-harsh land was made appearent, both sides sought to remove the other so as to achieve supremacy on the island and hoard the wealth and power to themselves. The two coming from long-established warrior cultured were equally matched against the other, and saw few actually gains worth noting. The two fought across the entire span of Ixania seeking to gain a foothold somewhere.

However, rather than end the fighting as it became appearent no one was winning, they continued fighting. As their their long and painful history with the other continued to grow, so did their respective people's refusal to even consider any form of peace, seeking to extinguish the enemy from existance. New and deadly weapons many decades before their time were created to gain and advantage over the other, and new forms of thought in detracting the attention of the suffering of the people began to sprout. Worship of the death god, Xauti came to become the dominant religion in Ixania, and remain to this day.

Significance

In all, the war was a failure tactically speaking, with no major conquests anywhere to speak of. However, the Xona and Xani came to view each other as brothers who shared many of the same values as the war passed, and eventually united to form the Honorable Union of Ixania, so far the only positive thing that emerged from all the killing. However, the Ixanian people came to adopt a view that held evil in high regard, viewing it as an inescapable part of human existance. As such, the morals and ideals of the once peaceful people came to become a twisted mockery of what many other nations held dear, forever tainting Ixanian culture.
