Hey fellow Cauldronites! What do you guys think were some of the biggest disagreements that led to conflict between the two?

To start with, different deities -- especially as one group considered all Gods but there own God to be false deities.

I'd have to say religious pluralism. Historical heathens were more than likely to accept new Gods, or at least to not care what other Gods somebody worshipped. With Christians, quite the opposite. That alone could understandably lead to some conflict.
