Event Synopsis

Ragnarok means the end of the Universe in Norse mythology. It will be preceded by Fimbulvetr, the "everlasting winter",[citation needed] or Fimbul Winter.[2]

Traditional Sequence of Event


The giant Wolf Skoll will finally devour Solveig the Sun Goddess, and his brother Hati will eat Mani Solveig's brother the Moon God, plunging Midgard and the Nine Worlds into complete darkness. The stars will vanish from the sky. The cockerel Fjalar will crow to the Giants and the golden cockerel Gullinkambi will crow to the Asgardians. A third cockerel will raise the dead of Hel.[citation needed]

Midgard will be struck with earthquakes, the Fenris Wolf will be released from its chains. The sea will rise up because Jormungand, the Midgard Serpent, is twisting and writhing in fury as he makes his way towards dry land.[citation needed]

With every breath, Jormungand will stain the soil and the sky with his poison. The waves caused by the serpent's emerging will set free the ship Naglfar, and with the giant Hymir as their commander, the Frost Giants will sail towards the battlefield. From the realm of the dead a second ship will set sail, and this ship carries the inhabitants of Hel, with the trickster god Loki as its commander.[citation needed]

The fire giant Surtur, will leave Muspelheim with his children,to join forces against the gods. Surtur, carrying a sword that blazes like the sun itself, will scorch the earth.[citation needed]

Meanwhile, in Asgard Heimdall will sound his horn, calling all the people of Asgard and the fallen heroes of Valhalla to the battlefield. From all the corners of the Nine Worlds, Gods, Giants, Dwarves, Demons, Dark Elves and Light Elves will ride towards the huge plain of Vigrid "battle shaker" where the last battle will be fought.[citation needed]Odin will battle with the Fenris Wolf in battle, and his son Thor will attack Jormungand.[citation needed]

Thor will defeat the creature, but the serpent's poison will gradually kill the thunder god. Surtur will seek out the unarmed Frey, who will be quickly killed in the fight.

The one-handed warrior Tyr Odinson will fight the monstrous hel-hound Garm and they will kill each other. Loki and Heimdall, will meet for a final time, and neither will survive the fight.[citation needed]

The fight between Odin and the Fenris Wolf will last for a long time, but finally Fenris will swallow Odin whole. Odin's son Vidar will then kill the creature with his bare hands, ripping the wolf's jaws apart.[citation needed]

Surtur will fling fire in every direction, burning the Nine Worlds, killing most of it's inhabitants.[citation needed]

After the destruction, a new world rise with new life. Some of the gods will survive, others will be reborn. The descendants of Lif and Lifthrasir will inhabit this earth.[citation needed]

Price and the Post-Ragnarok Humans

An eccentric physicist named Price, after ingesting hallucinogens became obsessed with Ragnarok, and what humanity would be like after the world ending in fire. So he created the World engine, which tricked Yggdrasill into believing Ragnarok had already occurred, and began created a new race of humans.[citation needed]

"Nursed on nothing but the morning dew" according to Price. The Post-Ragnarok Humans were gestated in sap-filled boughs that grew on Yggdrasil's branches. They were designed to exist in an environment filled with ash, in which they would "eat". Unfortunately, because this atmosphere didn't actually exist, they all began starving to death only moments after being born.[citation needed]
