The Mad War of Telu
took place in 3024 YSB, between the Painted Hood
and the Order of the High and Distinguished God
in the city of Jema
. The war lasted approximately one hour, and begun after Urali
blamed the priests of Zghan
for the theft of a ladle from the kitchen of one of his temples. It was subsequently ended when Zghan provided a replacement ladle. There were no casualties, besides one ladle and two temples of Zghan burned by Urali's followers.
Urali and Zghan have traditionally served as competing gods of artistry - the Divine of Madness and Divine of Art respectively. Their followers have, as a result, had tense relations. The war occurred in Jema, a city known for its artistic community and with many followers of both gods. In 3024, a temple acolyte of Zghan stole the favourite ladle of the chief cook of Urali's largest temple in the city as a prank.
After receiving a prayer lamenting the prank, Urali subsequently instructed his priests to raid the temples of Zghan to seek the ladle. His priests set two temples of Zghan's on fire with Laughing Flames. Following this, Zghan gave Urali a replacement ladle and the two gods ended the war.
The followers of Zghan and Urali subsequently ceased their hostilities. The pettiness of the war, even by the standards of Urali, served to illuminate the foolishness of their entire conflict and the two gods - and their orders - subsequently became close allies, seeing their shared interest in art more clearly. An alliance between the two orders was forged, which remains in effect, and the two are now the dominant gods in Jema.
