RAGNAROKAlso known as GOTTERDAMMERUNG, RAGNARÖK, RAGNARŘKR, RAGNORAK
The End of the World and Doom of the Gods
Literally 'Destruction of the Powers'. After three terrible winters of bitterness and conflict, SKOLL will eat the sun and his brother HATI will scoff the moon. Three cocks will crow (or is that three crows will cock?) and HEIMDALL will finally blow his awesome horn, bringing the Gods to the final battle.All hell will be let loose. The Earth will tremble, FENRIR's bonds will be shaken loose, and JORMUNGAND will emerge causing awful devastation with every twist of his serpent body. Everybody who's anybody will be beating the living daylights out of their enemies in a final glorious slaughter of Gods, Giants, Monsters and Dwarfs. Even the dead will join in with LOKI as their captain.
And nobody will win. The Gods will defeat their enemies but be defeated themselves, and everyone and everything will perish utterly.
