No, it’s not a joke, not an illusion…Serpent Scale #4 is finally here! The Lion In Fimbulwinter – Sweden After the Serpentfall gives you a thorough briefing on the that country after the day the shook the world.
When the Midgard Serpent fell to the Americans’ nuclear fire in July 1945, Denmark and Norway sheltered Sweden from the worst of it: Sweden’s survivors could shelter in their damaged buildings from the torrential rain that became torrential hail and snow. A near-civil war in the wake of Serpentfall forced the Crown Prince to flee, and a fragile coalition government holds a tenuous grasp on the reins of power. The Serpent’s body lies humped and cloudy on the western horizon. The Americans have pulled back to the Rockies; the center of the British Empire removed to Australia. The Royal Navy can keep station in the North Sea, but the Red Army commands all of Europe east of the Serpent Curtain. Soviet agents and skulk and plot in Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö…and there are far fouler things lurking in the dark winter night.
The country its people call Mother Svea stands alone.
