Ah, the gentle art of Fëanorian diplomacy.
Tolkien: any way you slice it.
'Then suddenly Morgoth sent forth great rivers of flame that ran down swifter than Balrogs from Thangorodrim, and poured all over the plain; and the Mountains of Iron belched forth fires of many poisonous hues, and the fume of them stank upon the air, and was deadly. Thus Ard-galen perished, and fire devoured its grasses; and it became a burned and desolate waste, full of a choking dust, barren and lifeless…Thus began the fourth of the great battles, Dagor Bragollach, the Battle of Sudden Flame.' - Of the Ruin of Beleriand, The Silmarillion.
