The earth is doomed.

I’ve got something I’m working on, and I’ve come to a bit of an impasse. So… Can I ask for assistance, please?

What I want are any words, keywords, descriptive words, phrases, quotes, prophecies (including biblical) pertaining to an Apocalypse.

Any kind of apocalypse. The cause, for my project, isn’t particularly important, and can even be mystical, zombie, whatever. Doesn’t matter.

My question, really, is if you were describing an apocalypse, what words would you use? Or if you were reading a news report, what kind of thing would you expect to see?

Yes, kind of vague, I know. But what comes to mind for you?

Anyone want to play?

Thank you kindly, folks.

I always think of that historical headline: "I am become Death, destroyer of worlds."

Here are a few I've used in my Apocalyptic stories still waiting to be finished...

chaotic
critically wounded
unstable
polluted
hostile
decayed
rotting
ravaged
senseless massacre
scorched
annihilation
massive fire balls/tremors

That's all I can think of at the moment.
