I’m running a weekly Savage Worlds campaign using the “Day After Ragnarok” setting.
The premise of this setting is that Hitler, realizing that the war was lost, directed his Occult researchers to bring about Ragnarok. They succeeded in summoning Jormungandr, the Midgard Serpent, but before it could fully materialize into our dimension and encircle the world, Truman ordered a B-29 carrying an atom bomb to fly into its head, killing it.
The corpse, roughly 8k miles long and 300 miles wide, crashed to earth, causing catastrophic destruction.
My question is this: is there a Setting-As-Written explanation as to how high into the sky the corpse of Jormungandr extends?
My own guess would be somewhere between 50 and 75 miles from sea level, factoring in the 'facts' that a snake’s body is probably not a perfect cylinder, compression/collapse on impact, cratering, etc.? But I'd love to know if there is an official answer. I'd ask on the Atomic Overmind forums, but they appear to be overrun with spam.
