(Norse Event)RAGNAROK

Also known as GOTTERDAMMERUNG, RAGNARÖK, RAGNARØK

The capture of Loki by lashing him to a rock with the entrails of his own son, Vali, will signal the twilight of the gods is nigh.

The giant wolf Skoll will eat the sun, his brother Hati will gobble up the moon, perpetual darkness will engulf the world and three terrible winters of battle will follow as everyone beats the living daylights out of anyone within striking distance, and fierce blizzards batter the earth. Then Heimdall will blow his mighty horn bringing the gods to Vigrid for the final battle.

It will be a bloodbath! Odin will meet Fenrir and be devoured only to be avenged by his son Vidar. Thor will meet his life long Nemesis Jormungand and pummel it to death but take a mere nine steps before the venom takes its toll. Heimdall will confront the guy whos guts he hates and fittingly strike the blow that finishes off Loki, the guy who started it all, just before he falls himself. The gods will have bragging rights for mere seconds as they defeat their dark opposites only to die from their injuries.

Gods, valkyries, giants, dwarves and warriors will knock seven bells out of each other, but it is a battle that no one can win.

If only the gods had been able to keep their nuts in their pants, their nasty words in their mouths and their enormous hammers off peoples skulls, maybe the golden age of peace would never have come to an end. But it is too late. Weapons will fly, trees will be felled, mountains will crumble and the earth will be engulfed in flames... Everyone and everything will be destroyed.

Well, not quite. The pure of heart will survive but there won't be many of them. Two humans, Lif and Lifthrasir, who had fallen asleep in Hoddmimir's Wood (Yggdrasil) will go at it like rabbits to re-populate the earth, the much loved Balder will be resurected along with his blind brother hod and will form a new pantheon with Vili and Ve, Vidar, Vali, Magni and Modi the sons of Odin and Thor.

A bright new world will be born out of total destruction, but don't worry... it hasn't happened yet.

Rant alert...Why, Oh WHY hasn't someone made a big money epic all about the Norse Gods, culminating in an almighty end of the world battle? The rock solid script is already in place, for Gods sake.
If i had the money i would do it myself. Definate blockbuster and not an evil ring or wand in sight! Rant over.
