Greetings from Richard!
Rash generalizations follow:
There have been several inter-group wars over the years. Almost all
start out fine and degrade year after year (with random blips in
between). Usually, they continue until they reach an "ugly" stage and
then are terminated. Leading up to Spice War, the Barons had formally
declared war on each other. The Crown decided that Barons can't declare
war without the Crown's consent. Whether or not this is a proper
corollary to the Baron's oath of fealty is an open question.
Interbaronial Wars can be a great theme for an event. Spice Wars, the
most recent, was a great event.
Don't repeat them. There are too many events in Atlantia that are just
the same old thing repeated year after year. Just a little creativity
can give a fresh feel to an event. Some yearly events are a traditional
part of our culture and should be continued. But, even these should be
modified each year. Ymir, for example, has a different format each year.
When Interbaronial Wars are repeated year after year they move from cool
ideas to US vs. THEM formats.
Lastly, if you do something like this, write a letter to the applicable
Crowns, invite them to attend, and while they're there they can add more
schtick. "If the honor of these two groups can only be satisfied by the
letting of blood .... yadayadayad"
