The messenger trembled before the Admiral of the Four Winds.
"Sir, one of our balloons was taking on cargo at Ouville when we suffered a casualty. A sailor had his throat brutally cut."
The Admiral considered this. "Are you sure he didn't accidentally, brutally try to cut his own head off?"
"Yes Sir. There were witnesses."
The Admiral sighed. "And what did the witnesses see?"
"The Ouville guard claim a shadowy figure appeared, slashed the sailor's throat, and then put on some sort of magic ring and vanished again."
The Admiral grew concerned - who would send elite assassins to such a small town?

Sun Tzu said:
The goal of warfare is not to kill the enemy, it is to defeat them. If you surround your enemy completely, give them no chance to escape, offer them no quarter, then they will fight to the last. They will fight you as they have never fought before, because they will have no choice.

Of course you can ignore the above if you have superior weapons and armor. But you keep wondering where the enemy's arsenal gone to...

The dockside bar was subdued. 

Ellor nursed his mead, wary of the vengeance of the bees for their stolen honey come the morning.  The afternoon crowd was thin - so many ships had lifted in the last days, leaving empty pylons and emptier warehouses.

The rumours were varied, and inconsistent, and often wild exaggeration no sensible drinker would give credence to - but in one regard they were all the same. 

They spoke of war.

A gaunt refugee told of dragonfire at dawn and guards, homes and her children aflame, only for a clerk from one of the merchant houses to follow with a tale of undead in the night wreaking terrible revenge, adding to their ranks from the corpses of the slain.  A sailor home for his latest child's birth gesticulated with the uncoordinated abandon of the nobly-smashed as he described the smoke and shadow of Balrogs' hellish destruction.  A lizard aviator back from mapmaking hissed a tale of steel and blood, of blasts of fire and waves of fear and finally cold iron meeting flesh and leaving only death behind.

Ellor's mead left a cloying aftertaste as he left the inn, to find his bunk and dream uneasy dreams.
