    Guess which company, that also happens to own this forum, has obtained the exclusive license to manufacturer swords from GRRM's ASOIAF?

    You have 3 guesses, or you could just go here:

    The concept art will be released on that site in due time.

    You cannot release it too early or less the knockoff artists could actually get their cheap knockoffs out and made before the actual product.

    No wonder R.R doesn't have time to write faster, he's too busy approving TV shows and weapon designs!

    I wouldn't mind owning Needle. I could go around jabbing people, snickering, "Stick them with the pointy end!"

    CB, I hate using you like this, but -

    I know this guy who thinks he's the biggest ASoIaF fanatic there is. He's always trying to provide me with these deep insightful things about the series or Martin that I already know.

    Well the other day he asks me something about swords. And I know what's coming next. The whole 'I was the first one to know there are going to be ASoIaF swords!' schpeal. So instead of waiting for the monster to rear it's big ugly head I jump to the end: "Oh, you mean the Ice and Fire swords? Yeah, CB told me he just got his hands on the liscense." It was a great feeling. I totally obliterated his plans. Muhaha!

    Well I wish I could have said something sooner back when we got the license. I was dying to tell someone that day, but there wouldn't be any point to make an announcement with no products designed, no website to point people to, etc.

    Oh yeah, definately. I just love the fact that I can at least *pretend* like we're 'best friends forever'. Just that I'm associated with someone cool enough to have the liscense to ASoIaF ANYTHING makes me proud.

    I take back what I said in the other thread. This actually might be very neat (especially if you're working with GRRM).

    In any case, good luck with the new business venture. :)
