How does Ragnarok begin?

A beautiful red rooster “Fjalar” which name means the “All knower”, will warn all the giants that the beginning of Ragnarok has begun. At the same time in Hel, will a red rooster warn all the dishonorable dead, that the war has begun. And also in Asgard, will a red rooster “Gullinkambi” warn all the Gods.

Heimdall will blow his horn as loud as he can and that will be the warning for all the einherjar in Valhalla that the war has started. This will be the battle to end all battles, and this will be the day that all the Vikings “Einherjar” from Valhalla and Folkvangr who had died honorably in battle, to pick up their swords and armor to fight side by side with the Aesir against the Giants.

The Gods, Baldr, and Hod will be returned from the dead, to fight one last time with their brothers and sisters. Odin will be riding on his horse Sleipnir with his eagle helmet equipped and his spear Gungnir in his hand, and lead the enormous army of Asgard with all the Gods and brave einherjar to the battleground in the fields of Vigrid.

The Giants will together with Hel, and all her dishonorable dead, sail in the ship Naglfar, which is made from the fingernails of all the dead, sail to the plains of Vigrid. The dragon Nidhug will come flying over the battlefield and gather as many corpses for his never-ending hunger.

A new earth rises from the sea

When the majority of the Gods had expired from the mutual destruction together with the Giants, it’s predetermined that a brand new world will rise from the water, green and beautiful.

When the battle is finished, they will emerge and repopulate the ground again.

Which gods survive Ragnarok?

However, there’s also a terrible location, a fantastic hallway on Nastrond, the coast of corpses. Each of its doors face north to greet the crying winds. The walls will be constructed of writhing snakes which pour their venom to a river which flows throughout the hallway. This is going to be the underground, filled with thieves and murderers, and if they expire the fantastic monster Nidhug, will there be to feed on their corpses.

The couple Gods who live will probably visit Idavoll, that has remained untouched. And they will construct new homes, the biggest of these homes will soon be Gimli, and is going to have a roof of stone. There’s also a new location named Brimir, in a location named Okolnir”Never chilly”. It’s in the hills of Nidafjoll.
