The Twilight of the Gods, Ragnarok was the timespoken of in Norse myth when the forces of evil would rise and march against the godsof Asgard, led by the renegade Loki. On Midgard, the Fimbul Winter would come, an axe age, a sword age, when brother would kill brother, and peace and goodness wouldpass from the world. Above, in Asgard, the gods would march to meet the frost giants, and the awful children of Loki, Jormungand the world serpent, and Fenrir thewolf, as well as the Evil One himself. The giants would swarm across the Rainbow Bridge, which would break under their assault.In Ragnarok, all the gods werefated to die in different ways, and also all the mortals of Midgard, except for two, whowould live on and recreate the race. Balder, the shining god slain inadvertently by blind Hodur, at Loki's urging, would return to lead these people to a new age.
