Why was war fought?

1. " This is the war that Lorn before me believed in. We must maintain our independence from DASS."

2. " We must expand our territory in order to remain independent. The DASS is trying to keep us from having any economic stability, so we must seize as much capital and as many resources as possible. Nothing as inferior as those things running the DASS should be allowed to stand in our way."

3. " This is the holy war that Arjun fought, in the name of Cascur. It is to carve a river across the sea, Nova. So that Sturm can remain independent. These are the things that Mother wants, so I will do my best to make her happy."

4. " What, can't you ask Radn-Bellam yourself? Even the busiest man should have time for Lyena."
