I'll respond to this one (I should do SOME work today...<grin>).

The Serioli, we're told, created Morganti weapons so that
they *wouldn't* go to war.  "And it worked, for them," we're
told.  Given their love/hate relations with the things, I'm
not surprised that they didn't go running off to battle
Dragaerans with the things.  

(Actualy, now that I think about it, it's funny that the 
Serioli wanted to create a weapon that would make war so 
terrible that no one would want to wage it; 
and we here on Earth have invented weapons that,
one would think, would make war that terrible, yet we still
wage it.  Go figure....:)
