Today I bring you the Midgard Serpent. His current version is a little too strong because it can be dealt with by an intermediate deity like Thor but I hope you like it anyway. The base creature I use to built it is the Midgard Serpent from Legendary Games.
This titanic sea serpent is impossibly long, with endless coils covered in fins and spines. Its enormous head seems almost to blot out the sun as it rises above to strike.

Uncanny Poisonous Mastery
Frequency 1/round for 120 rounds; cure 24 consecutive saves. Jörmungandr can choose which ability scores the poison affects. Or even choose multiple ability scores by dividing the total effect between them. Unlike the normal [Effect], a creature that fail the listed saving throw, must make a Fortitude save with the same DC or be exposed to the above poison. A Fortitude save DC 20 + immortal’s Constitution modifier + immortal’s divine rank (DC 126) negate for the form without DC (like Hand or Strike).

Bound by Fate (Ex)
Jörmungandr is bound by a fate greater than himself. He merely reforms after 1d6 seconds imprisoned at the bottom of the sea, biting his tail, if he is killed in any way from creatures that do not have at least a divine rank of 49 (Demiurge Stage I) or at least a divine rank of 33 and double Death portfolio (First One). Bound by Fate give as well Jörmungandr the Slipstream Cosmic Ability as a bonus ability. Bound by fate disappears when facing Thor during the Ragnarök. This is a Transcendental Ability. This replace the alter reality and cosmic string of the entity subtype.

Cleaving Bite (Ex)
A single attack from Jörmungandr’s bite can target all creatures in a 100-foot square. Make one attack roll; any creature in the area whose AC is equal to or lower than the result takes damage from the bite. Creatures struck by this area bite are exposed to the Midgard Serpent’s poison, and he can attempt a combat maneuver check to grapple and immediately swallow all creatures he hits with this bite attack, making a single check and applying it against the CMD of all targets. Swallowed creatures are again exposed to his poison. If he grapples a creature of Macro-Tiny size or smaller, he does not gain the grappled condition and does not need to succeed at a grapple combat maneuver check to move while maintaining his grapple. The Midgard Serpent can grapple any number of creatures of Macro-Tiny size or smaller simultaneously.

Crushing Coils (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can entwine and crush as many Titanic or smaller creatures as can fit within its space. Creatures can take attacks of opportunity against the Midgard Serpent as it moves into their area. Creatures in the affected area are pinned (DC 176 Reflex negates), taking 120d20+121 points of bludgeoning damage during the next round unless the Midgard Serpent moves off them. If the Midgard Serpent chooses to maintain the pin, it must succeed at a combat maneuver check as normal. Pinned foes take damage from the crush each round if they don’t escape. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Constricting Coils (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can duplicate the effects of the Snatch feat when attacking with its tail slap. If the Midgard Serpent makes a tail sweep attack, he can attempt a grapple combat maneuver as a free action against any one creature that failed its saving throw against the tail sweep. If the check succeeds, the target is grappled as above and takes automatic damage equal to the Midgard Serpent’s tail slap damage each round that it remains grappled.

Death Curse (Su)
When a creature slays the Midgard Serpent, all creatures that have harmed the Midgard Serpent within the previous minute are affected by the curse of doom. Curse of Doom: save Will DC 158; effect creature is affected as prediction of failure and can no longer be affected by healing spells nor heal damage naturally from rest. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Eater of Magic (Su)
When the Midgard Serpent fails a saving throw against a spell, supernatural ability, or spell-like ability, he can reroll the saving throw against the effect (this is not an action).
If he succeeds at the second saving throw, he is considered of having succeed the saving throw of the spell, supernatural ability, or spell-like ability and gains a number of temporary hit points equal to the effect’s caster level (in the case of spell or spell-like abilities) or the CR of the effect’s creator (in the case of supernatural abilities). These temporary hit points last for 1 hour and don’t stack with each other.

Feast of Minnows (Ex)
Unlike most kaiju, the Midgard Serpent can make attacks of opportunity against creatures of any size, and his natural weapons are considered area attacks for the purpose of attacking swarms.

God-Eater (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent despises all deities and their mortal and immortal servants. It can detect outsiders, extraplanar creatures, creatures with divine rank and divine spellcasters (as well as any creature called or summoned by outsiders, extraplanar creatures, creatures with divine rank or divine spell- casters) by scent at 1.000 times the normal range, and can always pinpoint their location when they are within 1.000 feet. His poison and Poison [effect] ignores the ability damage and ability drain immunity and poison immunity of creatures with divine rank 16 or lesser.

Hurl Foe (Ex)
As the Hurl Foe of the kaiju subtype, but with the difference that affect Colossal or smaller creatures instead of Huge or smaller.

Jaw of the World Snake (Ex)
Jörmungandr’s applies triple his Strength modifier to bite damage, and his bite attack has a critical threat range of 19-20. Jörmungandr’s bite attack automatically bypass any DR, that is not /–, and hardness the target might possess, gains +24 enhancement bonus and deal full damage to incorporeal creatures. Jörmungandr ignore freedom of movement or similar effect that prevent grab if generated by a creature with less divine rank of Jörmungandr. Jörmungandr gains the Superior Critical Multiplier (bite) and Superior Power Attack Divine Abilities as a bonus abilities.

Limited Manifestation (Ex)
Even if Jörmungandr is Macro-Colossal in length, he is only very long. To calculate his size bonus to the CMB, he considers himself Titanic. He considers himself Titanic to calculate his space on the game board if he is perpendicular to the ground (such as if it emerges from the water).

Lingering Breath (Su)
Jörmungandr’s can expend one use of mythic power as a free action when he uses his breath weapon (but not his [Effect] breath) to make the area radiate energy damage for 10 minutes. Any creature in, entering, or passing through the breath weapon’s area during this duration takes 10d20 divine acid and 10d20 divine cold and must save against the Midgard Serpent poison.

Massive (Ex)
Because Jörmungandr is so massive, uneven ground and other terrain features that form difficult terrain generally pose no significant hindrance to his movement, though areas of dense forest or massive settlements are considered difficult terrain to Jörmungandr (GM’s discretion). A Titanic or smaller creature can move through any square occupied by Jörmungandr, or vice-versa. Jörmungandr can be flanked only by Titanic or larger foes. Jörmungandr gains a bonus for being on higher ground only if his entire space is on higher ground than that of his target. It’s possible for a Titanic or smaller creature to climb Jörmungandr—this generally requires a successful climb check with DC 150, and a Small or larger creature that climbs on Jörmungandr body provokes an attack of opportunity from him, even if he has already used his attack of opportunity for this round. This replace the normal Massive ability of the kaiju subtype.

Mistsight (Ex)
Jörmungandr’s can see through fog, mist, and murky water as if they were perfectly clear, ignoring the miss chance for these obstructions, up to his normal range of vision.

Mythic (Ex)
Jörmungandr has Mythic Power (24/day, Surge +8d6) and counts as a 24th-rank Mythic creature. Jörmungandr can use any of his Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. Jörmungandr can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Noxious Breath (Su)
Creatures damaged by the Midgard Serpent’s breath weapon (including his lingering breath) are also exposed to his poison, though the diffusion of his poison in his breath reduces the save DC by 10 (or by 20 for creatures that do not need to breathe). Creatures swallowed by the Midgard Serpent are also exposed to his poison each round they remain within his gullet.

Poison (Ex)
Bite or breath weapon─injury; save Fort DC 176; frequency 1/round for 10 minutes; effect 30d20 divine acid damage and 30d20 divine cold damage and 2d12 Con drain; cure 3 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Shipwrecker (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent deals double damage to inanimate objects with his attacks.

Stormy Seas (Su)
The Midgard Serpent is surrounded by foul weather at all times. Wind speeds within 10 mile are increased by three steps, and the DC of Profession (sailor) and Swim checks are increased by 100. Once every 1d2 rounds, a 5-foot-wide vertical bolt of lightning strikes a random creature within 10 mile of the Midgard Serpent, dealing 30d20 points of divine electricity damage (DC 176 Reflex half). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Tail Sweep (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can sweep with his tail as a standard action, affecting 2-miles-radius half-circle extending from an intersection on the edge of his space. Macro-Tiny or smaller creatures and objects in the area take 120d20+181 points of damage (DC 176 Reflex half). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Twilight of Doom (Su)
Within 3 miles of the Midgard Serpent, lighting conditions are reduced by two steps and magic is suppressed. Spellcasters take a ─60 penalty on concentration checks and a ─24 penalty on caster level checks. A spellcaster failing either check is affected as crushing despair (DC 158) for 1 minute. A spellcaster already affected by crushing despair is instead affected as bestow curse (Will DC 158); determine the specific effect of this bestow curse randomly. A creature rolling a natural 1 on any d20 roll when attacking or attacked by the Midgard Serpent is also affected by this curse. This is a curse effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Weak Blood (Ex)
Although an Entity, Jörmungandr was born of two Immorates instead of Sidereals. Jörmungandr instead of having unique similar Cosmic Ability has 24 Divine Ability. While this is a disadvantage, for compensate this gives him a x4 hit point multiplier.

Dró djarfliga dáðrakkr Þórr
orm eitrfáan upp at borði;
hamri kníði háfjall skarar
ofljótt ofan ulfs hnitbróður.

Hraungalkn hlumðu, en hölkn þutu,
fór in forna fold öll saman;
sökkðisk síðan sá fiskr í mar.

Óteitr jötunn, er aftr reru,
svá at ár Hymir ekki mælti,
veifði hann ræði veðrs annars til.

The warder of men, the worm's destroyer,
Fixed on his hook, the head of the ox;
There gaped at the bait, the foe of the gods,
The girdler of all, the earth beneath.

The venomous serpent, swiftly up
To the boat did Thor, the bold one, pull;
With his hammer the loathly, hill of the hair
Of the brother of Fenrir | he smote from above.

The monsters roared, and the rocks resounded,
And all the earth, so old was shaken;
Then sank the fish, in the sea forthwith.

Is his CMD really supposed to be over 8 million?
In Pathfinder the size bonus to CMB/CMD it's the same of the size penalty to the AC. The revisited size penalty of Beefermatic (Alternate Size Penalties to Attack and AC past Titanic) rework the scaling of the size penalty to AC, but I use the normal penalty to AC scaling of the Epic Bestiary for calculate the CMB/CMD size bonus. A Macro-Colossal have a size penalty of 8.388.608

I personally think the CMB/CMD of it should be reworked, at a certain point when you have a bazillion to your modifiers the wheels basically fall off.

It becomes unusable even a sufficiently sized being will be unable to effectively grapple, and vice versa which doesn't really make and sense and gets rid of the possibility of cool ultra giant sized space grappling matches.

Bound by Fate (Ex)
Jörmungandr is bound by a fate greater than himself. He merely reforms after 1d6 seconds imprisoned at the bottom of the sea, biting his tail, if he is killed in any way from creatures that do not have at least a divine rank of 49 (Demiurge Stage I) or at least a divine rank of 33 and double Death portfolio (First One). Bound by Fate give as well Jörmungandr the Slipstream Cosmic Ability as a bonus ability. Bound by fate disappears when facing Thor during the Ragnarök. This is a Transcendental Ability. This replace the alter reality and cosmic string of the entity subtype.

Cleaving Bite (Ex)
A single attack from Jörmungandr’s bite can target all creatures in a 100-foot square. Make one attack roll; any creature in the area whose AC is equal to or lower than the result takes damage from the bite. Creatures struck by this area bite are exposed to the Midgard Serpent’s poison, and he can attempt a combat maneuver check to grapple and immediately swallow all creatures he hits with this bite attack, making a single check and applying it against the CMD of all targets. Swallowed creatures are again exposed to his poison. If he grapples a creature of Macro-Tiny size or smaller, he does not gain the grappled condition and does not need to succeed at a grapple combat maneuver check to move while maintaining his grapple. The Midgard Serpent can grapple any number of creatures of Macro-Tiny size or smaller simultaneously.

Crushing Coils (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can entwine and crush as many Titanic or smaller creatures as can fit within its space. Creatures can take attacks of opportunity against the Midgard Serpent as it moves into their in the affected area are pinned (DC 176 Reflex negates), taking 120d20+121 points of bludgeoning damage during the next round unless the Midgard Serpent moves off them. If the Midgard Serpent chooses to maintain the pin, it must succeed at a combat maneuver check as normal. Pinned foes take damage from the crush each round if they don’t escape. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Constricting Coils (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can duplicate the effects of the Snatch feat when attacking with its tail slap. If the Midgard Serpent makes a tail sweep attack, he can attempt a grapple combat maneuver as a free action against any one creature that failed its saving throw against the tail sweep. If the check succeeds, the target is grappled as above and takes automatic damage equal to the Midgard Serpent’s tail slap damage each round that it remains grappled.

Death Curse (Su)
When a creature slays the Midgard Serpent, all creatures that have harmed the Midgard Serpent within the previous minute are affected by the curse of doom. Curse of Doom: save Will DC 158; effect creature is affected as prediction of failure and can no longer be affected by healing spells nor heal damage naturally from rest. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Eater of Magic (Su)
When the Midgard Serpent fails a saving throw against a spell, supernatural ability, or spell-like ability, he can reroll the saving throw against the effect (this is not an action).
If he succeeds at the second saving throw, he is considered of having succeed the saving throw of the spell, supernatural ability, or spell-like ability and gains a number of temporary hit points equal to the effect’s caster level (in the case of spell or spell-like abilities) or the CR of the effect’s creator (in the case of supernatural abilities). These temporary hit points last for 1 hour and don’t stack with each other.

Feast of Minnows (Ex)
Unlike most kaiju, the Midgard Serpent can make attacks of opportunity against creatures of any size, and his natural weapons are considered area attacks for the purpose of attacking swarms.

God-Eater (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent despises all deities and their mortal and immortal servants. It can detect outsiders, extraplanar creatures, creatures with divine rank and divine spellcasters (as well as any creature called or summoned by outsiders, extraplanar creatures, creatures with divine rank or divine spell- casters) by scent at 1.000 times the normal range, and can always pinpoint their location when they are within 1.000 feet. His poison and Poison [effect] ignores the ability damage and ability drain immunity and poison immunity of creatures with divine rank 16 or lesser.

Hurl Foe (Ex)
As the Hurl Foe of the kaiju subtype, but with the difference that affect Colossal or smaller creatures instead of Huge or smaller.

Jaw of the World Snake (Ex)
Jörmungandr’s applies triple his Strength modifier to bite damage, and his bite attack has a critical threat range of 19-20. Jörmungandr’s bite attack automatically bypass any DR, that is not /–, and hardness the target might possess, gains +24 enhancement bonus and deal full damage to incorporeal creatures. Jörmungandr ignore freedom of movement or similar effect that prevent grab if generated by a creature with less divine rank of Jörmungandr. Jörmungandr gains the Superior Critical Multiplier (bite) and Superior Power Attack Divine Abilities as a bonus abilities.

Limited Manifestation (Ex)
Even if Jörmungandr is Macro-Colossal in length, he is only very long. To calculate his size bonus to the CMB, he considers himself Titanic. He considers himself Titanic to calculate his space on the game board if he is perpendicular to the ground (such as if it emerges from the water).

Lingering Breath (Su)
Jörmungandr’s can expend one use of mythic power as a free action when he uses his breath weapon (but not his [Effect] breath) to make the area radiate energy damage for 10 minutes. Any creature in, entering, or passing through the breath weapon’s area during this duration takes 10d20 divine acid and 10d20 divine cold and must save against the Midgard Serpent poison.

Massive (Ex)
Because Jörmungandr is so massive, uneven ground and other terrain features that form difficult terrain generally pose no significant hindrance to his movement, though areas of dense forest or massive settlements are considered difficult terrain to Jörmungandr (GM’s discretion). A Titanic or smaller creature can move through any square occupied by Jörmungandr, or vice-versa. Jörmungandr can be flanked only by Titanic or larger foes. Jörmungandr gains a bonus for being on higher ground only if his entire space is on higher ground than that of his target. It’s possible for a Titanic or smaller creature to climb Jörmungandr—this generally requires a successful climb check with DC 150, and a Small or larger creature that climbs on Jörmungandr body provokes an attack of opportunity from him, even if he has already used his attack of opportunity for this round. This replace the normal Massive ability of the kaiju subtype.

Mistsight (Ex)
Jörmungandr’s can see through fog, mist, and murky water as if they were perfectly clear, ignoring the miss chance for these obstructions, up to his normal range of vision.

Noxious Breath (Su)
Creatures damaged by the Midgard Serpent’s breath weapon (including his lingering breath) are also exposed to his poison, though the diffusion of his poison in his breath reduces the save DC by 10 (or by 20 for creatures that do not need to breathe). Creatures swallowed by the Midgard Serpent are also exposed to his poison each round they remain within his gullet.

Poison (Ex)
Bite─injury; save Fort DC 176; frequency 1/round for 10 minutes; effect 30d20 divine acid damage and 30d20 divine cold damage and 2d12 Con drain; cure 3 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Shipwrecker (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent deals double damage to inanimate objects with his attacks.

Stormy Seas (Su)
The Midgard Serpent is surrounded by foul weather at all times. Wind speeds within 10 mile are increased by three steps, and the DC of Profession (sailor) and Swim checks are increased by 100. Once every 1d2 rounds, a 5-foot-wide vertical bolt of lightning strikes a random creature within 10 mile of the Midgard Serpent, dealing 30d20 points of divine electricity damage (DC 176 Reflex half). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Tail Sweep (Ex)
The Midgard Serpent can sweep with his tail as a standard action, affecting 2-miles-radius half-circle extending from an intersection on the edge of his space. Macro-Tiny or smaller creatures and objects in the area take 120d20+181 points of damage (DC 176 Reflex half). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Twilight of Doom (Su)
Within 3 miles of the Midgard Serpent, lighting conditions are reduced by two steps and magic is suppressed. Spellcasters take a ─60 penalty on concentration checks and a ─24 penalty on caster level checks. A spellcaster failing either check is affected as crushing despair (DC 158) for 1 minute. A spellcaster already affected by crushing despair is instead affected as bestow curse (Will DC 158); determine the specific effect of this bestow curse randomly. A creature rolling a natural 1 on any d20 roll when attacking or attacked by the Midgard Serpent is also affected by this curse. This is a curse effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Weak Blood (Ex)
Although an Entity, Jörmungandr was born of two Immorates instead of Sidereals. Jörmungandr instead of having unique similar Cosmic Ability has 24 Divine Ability. While this is a disadvantage, for compensate this gives him a x4 hit point multiplier.

[YouTube VLsSJyrA1WE]
Dró djarfliga dáðrakkr Þórr
orm eitrfáan upp at borði;
hamri kníði háfjall skarar
ofljótt ofan ulfs hnitbróður.

Hraungalkn hlumðu, en hölkn þutu,
fór in forna fold öll saman;
sökkðisk síðan sá fiskr í mar.

Óteitr jötunn, er aftr reru,
svá at ár Hymir ekki mælti,
veifði hann ræði veðrs annars til.

The warder of men, the worm's destroyer,
Fixed on his hook, the head of the ox;
There gaped at the bait, the foe of the gods,
The girdler of all, the earth beneath.

The venomous serpent, swiftly up
To the boat did Thor, the bold one, pull;
With his hammer the loathly, hill of the hair
Of the brother of Fenrir | he smote from above.

The monsters roared, and the rocks resounded,
And all the earth, so old was shaken;
Then sank the fish, in the sea forthwith.
Great stuff btw, will be using this for an upcoming encounter in my current campaign. 😁

I personally think the CMB/CMD of it should be reworked, at a certain point when you have a bazillion to your modifiers the wheels basically fall off.
I know it desperately need a rework, but I can't decide how. Simply put your reworked size penalty on the CMB/CMD instead of using the standard progression?

Honestly I'm not entirely sure either. I personally think it would make more sense or at the very least it would be usable mechanically for in game purposes but I utterly agree that the whole mechanic needs a desperate rework.

If we break down the divine bonuses of extremely large beings, and the Strength bonuses of extremely strong beings, I think the +4 per size category to cmb and cmd instead of a mechanic going up at a J-curve, would end up being a lot more in line.

I never perceived the strength or divine bonus as a problem until you have four hundred [X] Body abilities to re-add the divine rank in fourteen different sauces to the AC.

Ironically if you add sidereals and other higher end beings to an IH campaign, you ultimately need those abilities to survive the onslaught of abilities they can throw at you.

Something I keep forgetting to ask: if the Midgard Serpent is 25000 miles long, shouldn't his reach be more than 30 miles? Even his target is right above him, I would think he could raise his head up to the edge of the atmosphere (about 62 miles), or even higher if he holds his breath?

It should, but I didn't want to give it such a reach. As strong it is, is only an entity destined to die against an Intermediate deity, I didn't want to make it TOO powerful. This is why I gave it Limited Manifestation. With the normal rules It has a reach of 16.600 miles.

Alter Reality (Su)
Once per round as a free action Ymir can duplicate any spell of 15th-level or less. This ability can also duplicate any epic spells of DC 216 or less. Other use of this ability are GM’s discretion.

Bones of a New World (Su)
If Ymir is ever slain, its cosmic string apply, but the massive elemental creature’s corpse falls to the ground as the seed for new layers, perhaps even a world.
The Ymir-corpse left behind acts as the seed of 7 planar layers. If allowed to grow for a year or more, each of these seeds expand to form a new layer.
If Ymir is slain on the Material Plane, or one of the seed is moved into deep space somehow, that seed instead produces an Earth-like world with 1d4-1 moons and rich natural resources. The world establishes a stable orbit around a nearby star, or becomes a rogue exo-planet with Earth-like conditions, including a short day and long, chill night sustained by ambient magic.

Child of Two Worlds (Ex)
Ymir was generated when the flames of Múspellsheimr melted the ice of Niflheim and from their combination. It obtains both the Double Fire Portfolio and the Double Winter Portfolio at the same time without any of their weaknesses. Ymir is a truly ancient, primordial being and that give him a x6 hit points multiplier instead of x4 like standard Elder One. Ymir gains the Slipstream Cosmic Ability as a bonus ability.

Cosmic Might (Ex)
Ymir deals d20's for base damage dice of all melee, natural weapon, and unarmed attacks with virtual size categories, and its damage dice cannot go below this dice but this cannot increase to more dice than Ymir HD.

Fimbulwinter Aura (Su)
Ymir is surrounded with a blizzard in a 6.000 foot radius. Within this area, the snowfall and wind gusts cause a –24 penalty on Perception checks and ranged attacks and reduce range of vision to no more than 20 feet. The wind itself blows in a clockwise rotation around Ymir, and functions as blizzard (Core Rulebook 439). Ymir is unaffected by snowstorms or blizzards of any kind. All creatures in the area take 24d10 points of cold damage each round (Fort DC 138 half). A creature that dies in this aura is transformed into ice, and can only be restored to life with true resurrection or wish used by a greater deity that has 136 or higher caster level. Any effect that causes these winds to drop below severe (such as control weather or control winds) cancels the snowstorm effect entirely but require a caster level check against Ymir spell resistance. If Ymir lose its fimbulwinter aura can restart it by concentrating for 3 rounds. The save DC is Charisma based.

Freezing Rend (Su)
A creature that takes damage from Ymir’s rend must succeed a DC 138 Reflex save or become encased in ice. This ice functions as an icy prison spell with a caster level equal to 164th. The save DC is Charisma based.

Hurl Foe (Ex)
When Ymir damages a Titanic or smaller foe with one of its natural attacks, it can try to hurl the foe as part of that attack by attempting a combat maneuver check. On a successful check, the foe is knocked back 10 feet in a direction of Ymir’s choice and falls prone. The distance the foe is hurled increases by 10 feet for every 5 points by which Ymir’s check exceeds the foe’s CMD. If an obstacle stops the hurled creature before it travels the whole distance, the hurled foe and the obstacle struck each take 1d6 points of damage per 10 feet of distance remaining and the foe is knocked prone in the space adjacent to the obstacle.

Icewalking (Ex)
Ymir can move on icy or snow covered surfaces without penalty, and can climb icy surfaces as if affected by a spider climb spell.

Divine Traits (Elder One) (Ex)
As an elder one, Ymir gains a +24 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Ymir’s natural attacks or any weapons it wields, are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. An elder one does not age, requires no air to breathe, no food or drink to sustain itself, nor sleep.

Massive (Ex)
Because Ymir is so massive, uneven ground and other terrain features that form difficult terrain generally pose no significant hindrance to its movement, though areas of dense forest or massive settlements are considered difficult terrain to Ymir (GM’s discretion). A Titanic or smaller creature can move through any square occupied by Ymir, or vice-versa. Ymir can be flanked only by Titanic or larger foes. Ymir gains a bonus for being on higher ground only if its entire space is on higher ground than that of its target. It’s possible for a Titanic or smaller creature to climb Ymir—this generally requires a successful DC equal to its CMD, and a Small or larger creature that climbs on Ymir body provokes an attack of opportunity from him.

Mythic (Ex)
Ymir has Mythic Power (24/day, Surge +8d6) and counts as a 24th-rank Mythic creature. Ymir can use any of its Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. Ymir can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Snow Sight (Ex)
Ymir’s vision is not impeded by inclement weather, either magical or mundane.

I was acutally going to ask what Ymir would be a while back. I thought a demiurge, since the universe in Norse Mythology is made from his body.

I was acutally going to ask what Ymir would be a while back. I thought a demiurge, since the universe in Norse Mythology is made from his body.
Surtur in Gods and Monsters unfinished has some info on Ymir:

Nemesis: Ymir (Surtur), Frey (Surtur’s Avatar)

RELATIONSHIPS (SURTUR)

Angels: Surtur has not forgotten the treachery of these feathered interlopers and dreams of their destruction.

Norse Pantheon: Surtur is the being fated to bring about the oblivion of the Norse Pantheon. As such they are not eager to have him released. In fact perhaps only the goddess Hel would welcome Surtur’s freedom. The rest, including even Loki, would most certainly conspire against him.

Ymir: Surtur’s frozen counterpart, is also perhaps his greatest foe. These two prometheans exist to plague the norse gods, each vying for the right to be the one to ultimately destroy it.

DEATH OF SURTUR
Aside from the purely physical ramifications of the death of Surtur (a massive fireball engulfing all those within a mile radius of his sundered manifestation), his demise would have notable planar consequences. Firstly, Muspelheim (the para elemental plane of lava) may start to burn and crumble away, in effect destroying itself within about 120 days. This will almost certainly see an exodus of its fleeing residents into not only nearby planes, but also into prime material worlds as they try to escape by any means necessary. Those immortals who rule from the elemental planes of earth and fire may see a waxing of their power as these fiery immigrants flock to their banner. Alternatively, if Surtur’s avatar has survived he may lead his forces against these neighbours in an attempt to carve out a new realm. Secondly, the norse pantheon will have seemingly escaped its demise. However, fate has a way of balancing itself, and before long a new destroyer (such as Ymir) may appear. If Surtur’s avatar survived his destruction, then it is likely the death of Surtur’s manifestation would not have that great an effect upon fire giant religion since his avatar already fulfils that role while Surtur remains imprisoned. Although this depends upon how long the manifestation is free to roam before it is laid low.

I have decided to consider Ymir as a counterpart but much more powerful than Surtur as the progenitor of the Nine Worlds in Norse mythology. Yggdrasil in my setting is the First One "life" (double Life Portfolio, present in Tiamat's profile on this forum). In my setting the demiurge is Groetus (Groetus - PathfinderWiki), the sundered mind of the Time Lord Azathoth (Azathoth - PathfinderWiki).

I will post now Surtur the Fire Giant Lord. Unlike the others this is not my creation: it was created by Upper_Krust and the original version can be found in his incomplete Gods and Monsters manual. I have only converted from 3.5 to PF1 and by putting the revisited system of this forum as the Might system.

Surtur

The titanic ebon-giant before you seems to tower into the clouds. Its body, black as soot, belches fire and smoke as if some living volcano just about to erupt. Its features are unmistakably demonic, curved horns, fanged visage and writhing tail, as if this was the primordial template for all other demons that would follow. In its mighty hands it grasps an immense fiery runesword that shines with the light of a thousand suns promising destruction and doom for all. Even from a mile away the heat is palpable, worse yet is its gaze which seems to burn into your very soul. As it approaches every instinct tells you to flee...

Surtur’s Manifestation stands 240 feet tall and weighs 65.536 tons.

Surtur deals d20's for base damage dice of all melee, natural weapon, and unarmed attacks with virtual size categories, and his damage dice cannot go below this dice but this cannot increase to more dice than his HD.

Divine Traits (Elder One) (Ex)
As an elder one, Surtur gains a +24 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Surtur’s natural attacks or any weapons he wields, are treated as epic, evil-aligned and lawful-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

NEW EPIC WEAPON SPECIAL ABILITY

[Aligned] Power

This weapon is [alignment]-aligned and thus bypasses the corresponding damage reduction. When a weapon of [Aligned] power strikes a target of opposite alignment, this power erupts forth and deals +3d6 points of bonus [Aligned] damage to the target, and the target gains one negative level (Fortitude DC 23 negate). On a successful critical hit it instead deals +6d6 points of [Aligned] damage and bestows two negative levels (or +9d6 and three negative levels if the critical multiplier is x3, or +12d6 and four negative levels if the critical multiplier is x4). The weapon bestows three negative levels on any opposite [Aligned] creature attempting to wield it. These negative levels remain as long as the weapon is in hand and disappear when the weapon is no longer wielded. These negative levels never result in actual level loss, but they cannot be overcome in any way (including restoration spells) while the weapon is wielded. Bows, crossbows, and slings with this special ability bestow the [Aligned] power upon their ammunition. This special ability does not stack with the nonepic [Aligned] special ability.

Caster Level: 23rd; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Craft Epic Magic Arms and Armor, blasphemy/dictum/holy word/word of chaos; Market Price: +8 bonus.

Flashing: Weapons with this property allow the wielder to make an additional attack (at their highest base attack bonus) at the end of the round for every damaging melee blow landed against them during the round. Any attacks against them must deal at least 1 hit point of actual damage to grant an additional attack. Also the attacks must be melee attacks, not missile attacks.

Caster Level: 75th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Craft Epic Magic Arms and Armor, haste, wish; Market Price: +25 bonus

The Valkyrie (CR +4)

The Valkyrie are the Norse Choosers of the Slain from the frozen north. They are frosty warrior women who claim the fallen, giving them passage to Valhalla, Hel, or other Norse afterlives.

Creating a Valkyrie:
Valkyrie is an acquired template that can be fulfilled by any female living creature that meets requirements the DM sets, usually a quest for Asgard or its equivalent in your setting to win favor and be issued into the ranks of the Valkyrie.

Alternatively, you may be allowed to be one from the start of play.

CR: Same as the base creature +4.

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral.

Type: The creature’s gains the extaplanar subtype. Valkyrie count Asgard (or its equivalent in your setting) as her native plane.

Size: Same as the base creature.

Senses: As the base creature, plus darkvision 60 feet.

AC: The Valkyrie gains her Charisma modifier as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class (see holy zeal).

Speed: Valkyrie increase all speeds they possess by 20 ft. and gain at 150 ft. fly speed with average maneuverability due to developing large white wings.

Hit Dice: Change the base creature’s racial Hit Dice to d10s. All Hit Dice derived from class levels remain unchanged. Valkyrie hit point are maximized.

Defensive Abilities: A Valkyrie retains all of the base creature’s defensive abilities and special qualities. It also gains the following additional defensive abilities.

Damage Reduction: A Valkyrie gains damage reduction /— equal to her character level.

Death Resistence (Ex): Valkyrie are immune to any effect that would kill them instantly from full HP to 0 in one blow, or that outright kills them such as Vorpal does. Valkyrie do not age any further and age backwards until they look to be 20 years of age by human terms. A Valkyrie is never considered dying and remains conscious and unhindered until they are slain at -Constitution modifier.

Enduring Stamina (Ex): Valkyrie take four times as long to suffer from suffocation, dehydration, starvation, and can run indefinitely with no ill effects.

Fast Healing: A Valkyrie gains fast healing equal to her HD.

Holy Zeal (Su): A Valkyrie adds her Charisma modifier as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class and as a bonus equal to her Charisma bonus (if any) on all Saving Throws. This does not stack with similar ability that add Charisma as an untyped bonus to saving throws like the Unholy Resilience of the antipaladin or the Towering Ego of the mesmerist.

Immunities: A Valkyrie is immune to death effects, disease, poison, and sleep effects.

Resistance: A Valkyrie has resistance 10 to all elements.

Special Attacks: A Valkyrie retains all of the base creature’s special attacks. She also gains the following additional special attacks.

Slay (Su): Once per day, the Valkyrie can mark a living creature within 30 ft. to die as a standard action. If the creature fail a Fortitude save DC 10 + ½ Valkyrie HD + Valkyrie Charisma modifier, it take 10 damage per HD of the Valkyrie. If the creature succeed its save, it take instead 3d6 + Valkyrie HD as damage. If the damage (even if the creature succeed the save) slay the creature, it suffer the effect of Choosen of the Slain even if it is unwilling. This is a death effect.

Smite Enemy (Su): Once per day, a Valkyrie can call out to the powers of Odin to aid her in her struggle in the battlefield. As a swift action, the Valkyrie chooses one target within sight to smite. The Valkyrie adds her Cha bonus (if any) to her attack rolls and adds her HD to all damage rolls made against the target of her smite. If the target of smite enemy is an outsider with the extraplanar subtype, a dragon, or an undead creature, the bonus to damage on the first successful attack increases to 2 points of damage per HD the Valkyrie. Regardless of the target, smite enemy attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. The smite enemy effect remains until the target of the smite is dead or the next time the Valkyrie rests and regains her uses of this ability. At 4 HD, and at every three HD thereafter, the Valkyrie may smite enemy one additional time per day.

Special Qualities: A Valkyrie retains all of the base creature’s special qualities. She also gains the following additional special qualities.

Battle Trained (Ex)
A Valkyrie is proficient with all armor. Armor never impacts a valkyrie’s speed, nor does a Valkyrie take armor check penalties on checks.

Choose the Slain (Su)
As a standard action, a Valkyrie can draw the soul from a recently deceased body within 100 ft. and safeguard it indefinitely. This functions as the soul bind spell, but can only be used on one deceased creature willing to have its soul carried by the valkyrie, and can only be used within a number of rounds after the creature is slain equal to the Valkyrie’s HD. If the soul is reluctant to trust the Valkyrie, she can attempt to convince it to trust her with a Diplomacy check equivalent to increasing its starting attitude (per the Diplomacy skill) as part of the standard action used to bind the soul. If the creature is unwilling, the ability has no effect. No gem is necessary for storage of the soul. She can release a soul she carries as a full-round action.

Valiant Steed (Ex)
A Valkyrie gains the services of a loyal mount. This mount functions as a druid’s animal companion with Druid level equal to the Valkyrie HD. She must select a horse as her mount with this ability. Her mount is always considered combat trained, has a fly speed of 60 ft. (poor) and begins play with Light Armor Proficiency as a bonus feat.

Should a Valkyrie’s mount die, she may find another mount to serve her after 1 week of mourning. Until she is able to obtain a new mount, the Valkyrie is considered to be shaken.

A Valkyrie cannot ever have more than one mount or animal companion, if she has already one, her mount or animal companion gains combat trained as a bonus trick, a fly speed of 60 ft. (poor) and Light Armor Proficiency as a bonus feat (can be any creature, not only a horse).

Abilities: +2 Str, +2 Dex, +4 Con, +4 Cha

Skills: A Valkyrie gain a +4 to Knowledge (planes), Knowledge (religion), Perception, and Ride checks. A Valkyrie always count Fly and Ride as class skills.

Organization: Solitary or Troop (12 Valkyrie) unless you barge in where they call home where there could be many more.
