FIMBULVETR


FIMBULVETR Fimbul Winter, Mighty Winter The winter of winters, the worst of all possible win-ters. The Fimbulvetr lasted for three years without respite and took place just before ragnarok, the end of the world. It brought terrible hardships, with driving snowstorms from all four points of the com-pass, vicious winds, bitter cold, and unyielding ice. People starved and lost all hope and goodness as they fought for their lives. They committed terrible crimes and started many wars.
