The world as you know it has ended. What will you do?
Welcome to the world at the end of the world. The skies are shrouded with burning, oily smoke, the Earth groans under a poisoned corpse, and the
only way out may be deeper into the belly of the beast. It’s a world nearly killed by the death of wonder, although far from all the wonders are dead. Put the
“grim” back in “grime” and see the world outside the smeared Perspex windscreen.
See it smolder. See it burn. See if you can save it.
Basic world premise, in 1945 the Nazis were losing ww2, so they used occult magic to awaken Jormundgr and begin Ragnarok. The Americans nuked it and as a result the snake died across Africa and Europe, America got fucked by poisonous tidal waves, mutanagenic venom was released into the world and oceans. And now the USSR and British Empire are the main powers.
The world is basically post apocalyptic with some exceptions, tech is ww2 era but with “Ophi tech” which is basically tech crafted with snake parts, and snake oil refined into a superfuel.
The Jotuns awoke, the fey came out of hiding or sent contingents to midgard from their realms, warforged were manufactured, snake cults drank the blood of Jormundgr and became Yuan-Ti…. etc.
It’s now 1948, so your characters need a pre “Serpentfall” backstory and then a 1945-1948 living in the mad max / dystopian past/future setting.
