All are now top side as the rumblings of the approaching storm made the underworld unsafe.
Dwarfs, Trolls, Giants, and Humans all preparing for the storm, covering windows, batten down the hatches, all is chaos as everyone is frantic with anticipation . . . .
. . . . a calm settles in, an eerie calm, the wind stops blowing the birds stop chirping, just a serene deafening silence . .
. . . . . . and then with lightning fury and thundering power clouds roll towards us, flashing with every color of light and some I have never even seen before . . . . . Thor is here . . .
The clouds thicken and seem to take the shape of two wild beast goats, as lightning continues to crack the sky, winds tantamount to blizzard force, rain has turned to sleet, within seconds the lush green lands are now covered in snow and the lakes are now ice.
The thunderous storm intensifies more and more until Thor's ship hovers directly above.
Electromagnetic lightning bolts shooting off of it in every direction.
With the clouds clearing slightly and the ship becoming more visible, it is clearly the size of a Kingdom, how could this be, who could posses such technology?
The "Storm" heads out to sea where it lands and forms it's own island.
Delegates of all nations Troll, Dwarf, Giant, Human and otherwise have already set sail in anticipation of Thor's arrival, and have docked successfully with Thor's ship.
They are escorted onto the bridge of the ship where their God awaits.
Looking out the large bay windows stand a pronounce rugged man with what obviously is a Goddess standing next to him.
They are made aware of our presence and they turn to great us, the Goddess carrying something close to her bodice.
They greet us one by one and it is evident that the Goddess is carrying a new born baby, a baby with lungs as mighty as, you guessed it Thor himself.
As to which the Elder Dwarf stepped up and said "Young Thor, I bequeeth you your first lesson and gift." and he then places a tiny golden hammer in Thor's mouth, a golden hammer pacifier, then he says, "and todays lesson is silence is golden." to which the room filled with laughter.
