The War of the Asuras was a long conflict that caused an estimated 26 Million deaths. It came at a rare time in history, when there were only six nations/leagues in the entire world (two of which remained neutral, although they supplied weapons to both sides). The War lasted longer than most other wars throughout history, and when it was over the world economy collapsed into a depression lasting ten years. It dealt with the rising power and forcefulness of the Islamic Nations. It was the first (and last, at least so far) conflict of Atomic Warfare. Nuclear Weapons were dropped on Mysore, Ku si keo (Cuzco), Mecca, Kyoto (however, the attempt to bomb it was failed), Canton, and finally Rwma (Rome).
BackgroundAfter the Discovery of Yingzhou, in 1032, there was a great race among the major powers to conquer as much "Barbarian" Lands as possible. When, suddenly it seemed, these lands ran out there were large economic problems. Workers were constantly laid off as the ever expanding consumption for a growing population was not being met. Prices of all kinds soared. At the same time, tensions between the Mysorean League got worse. Trade between the Mysorean League and the nations of Islam stopped. Huge Walls were erected on the borders between Mysoreans and the Muslims. The invention of the railroad and of machines that did not need to be paid in China put more workers out of work. Workers in Japan and China started to riot. The Congren Rebellion in China (1292-1296) nearly stopped all goods being traded and created in China. In 1298, Ninda Prinsa, heir to the throne of Mysore Proper, converted to Islam. His father renounced his son's birthright just days later and died in his sleep. When Jōjāgarahāhai, Ninda's younger brother was proclaimed Maharaja, the Caliph of Mecca declared Global Jihad against the League of Mysore. China and Japan joined with the Mysoreans to form the Alliance.
