Does the devouring of the Sun and Moon and the falling of the Stars effect all the Nine Worlds on Yggdrasil or just Midgard?

Is Fimbulvinter freezing all Nine Worlds? I could see at least the realm of the Fire Giants remaining hot, and in the realm of the Ice Giants who would notice, but what about Alfheim and Svartalfheim? Or Valhalla?

I just know I am going to get asked about this.

From everything I've read the answer is yes yes yes and yes!

Oh, goody! There will be no escape for the players this time. And I really need to brush up on Norse mythology.

Good question Dave!

The sun and moon served all of the realms before they were moved to sit above Asgard. This allowed 3 realms a day/night cycle: Midgard, Vanagard and Alfgard. The other realms were plunged into darkness: Jotunheim, Svartalfheim, Niflheim, Nidavellir, Muspelheim and Hvergelmir. Well Muspelheim never grows dark nor cold, it has its own native heat and light. Ever since then the Jotuns have been trying to get them back... from the architect of the Asgardian wall to the dispatch of Skoll and Hati.

Now Alfgard, Asgard, Vanagard and Midgard join the other realms in cold and darkness (again except Muspelheim). The upcoming book "Gods and Giants" will cover this in more detail.
