Frostmourne Replica to be Released in May
Blizzard Entertainment has announced that a replica sword of Frostmourne, the Lich King's vampiric runeblade first featured in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, will be made available this May.
Frostmourne was a really cool sword that stole the soul of Prince Arthas, turning him into the Lich King's mightiest general and commander of the Undead Scourage in the Warcraft universe. Gamers the world over know Frostmourne and love it for both the lore behind it, and the simple fact that it just looks so damn cool.
The replica Frostmourne looks absolutely amazing, but it carries a hefty price that of $379.00 (US) that I simply couldn't justify.
Back in 2003, I picked up a replica sword on an east-coast trip, Morthoseth the Sword of Shadows, from Kit Rae's Swords of the Ancients fantasy series. At the time, many people compared it to Frostmourne as it looked very similar, and Morthoseth still proudly hangs from my wall today, waiting to dispatch any unwarry Jehovah's Witnesses or Girl Guides who stray onto my property.
