In the pagan mythology of the Vikings of the early medieval times, Ragnarok was the day of the end, the Twilight of the Gods. It was said to be the greatest battle ever, when the gods and Giants dueled to the death on the vast plain of Vigard. It is the battle when the forces of evil and good risk eveything and destroy the world, and as the Norse god's were non-immortal, and the gods themselves.

Ragnarok will begin with a fierce war on Midgard (earth), when the humans will constantly destroy each other, brothers slaying brothers. The gods and giants will more frequently skirmish, and eventualy the Earth will freeze, killing all but humanity Lif & Lifthrasir, a couple who'll hide in the world tree Yggdrasil's branches. Then the real war will begin.

Loki the evil trickster, and his demon wolf son Fenrir will break the magic chains that bind them, and Jormungand the world serpent will haul his massive body onto land, causing the nine worlds to shudder. Hel, the goddess of the underworld and daughter of Loki, will summon the spirits who died of disease and natural causes to her aid from the frozen hell of Niflheim, and the demonic guard dog of that place Garm will join her. Surt, leader of the fire Giants, will gather his followers from Muspell (the realm of flames) and with Hel and Garm, will join Loki, Fenrir, and Jormungand to assault Asgard, the kingdom of the gods.

Heimdall, the guardian of Asgard, will sound his horn and gather the gods and their allies to ready for Loki's horde. With the aid of the Giants of Utgard, Loki and his minions will gather at the great plain of Vigard, as will the forces of good. At the sound of another blow from Heimdall's horn the battle will begin. Fenrir will knock Odin, king of the gods, to the ground and devour him. Odin's son Vidar will take revenge on the wolf and slay him. Thor the thunder god will be bitten by Jormungand and crush the great serpent's skull with his hammer, only to die once the bite takes effect. Garm will rip open the noble god of law Tyr's throat just as he pierces the wolf's heart, and Loki and Heimdall will duel and kill each other. The plain of Vigard will be awash with blood as the remaining gods and evil creatures battle it to the finish.

Surt the fire master will fling his blade into the sky, causing a rain of fire and ice. The nine worlds will crumble, and Niddhogr the dragon of the underworld will chew on Yggdrasil's root, before the beach of corpses Nastrond where he lives will be destroyed. The remains of the frozen earth will sink into the ocean, and a pair of giant wolves will eat the sun and moon. This is Ragnarok, the twilight of the Norse gods.

However, hope will be at hand after Ragnarok. Despite heaven and hell being destroyed along with the gods and giants, Midgard will arise from the ocean. The couple who hid in Yggdrasil, Lif and Lifthrasir, will descend to the new world and renew the human race. Odin's sons Vidar and Vali will survive, along with Thor's children Modi and Magni. Balder, Nanna, Hod and Honir, all gods who died before Ragnarok will awake from the dead and become the new gods. Peace will survive forever after the bloody war that is Ragnarok
