- Wights (zombies) can be killed with fire, but we've never seen a white walker (icy blokes) killed by fire - only by dragonglass or Valyrian steel
- Yes, in the real world, longswords are longer than bastard swords. But in ASOIAF, bastard swords are longer than longswords. (Jon VIII, AGOT)
- Yes, in the tv show, Tywin hires a Volantene smith to reforge Ice. But in the books, it's Tobho Mott. (Tyrion IV, ASOS)
- Yes, in the tv show, Brienne names Oathkeeper. But in the books, Jaime names Oathkeeper. (Jaime IX, ASOS)
- No, Arya's sword Needle is not Valyrian steel. It's regular steel forged in Winterfell.
- No, the Iron Throne isn't Valyrian steel
- Yes, Dawn is cool as fuck, but it's never referred to as Valyrian steel.
Yall can stop commenting about this stuff now 😶

@Lady Falcon "but he gets so much wrong" like what exactly? every supposed bit of "misinformation" I've seen has just been from people who haven't read the books thinking they know better and how is he snapping at anyone?

I refuse to allow the canonization of a mistake GRRM made because he didn't know what a bastard sword was at the time of writing - how would a blade longer than a longsword even be 'bastard' using any logic? They call them bastard swords because they occupy a rough middle-ground between short and long swords. Hence, bastard sword. This is the worst thing I've seen GRRM do since I first heard his pronunciation of 'Dothraki'. So annoying. "HAND AND A HALF" they say that in the books - but no, it's not a sword that can be used with one hand and two hands in a pinch it just has a slightly longer blade - my fucking ass. IT MAKES NO SENSE USING THE INTERNAL LOGIC OF THE BOOK. THIS IS A SHOW-LEVEL MISTAKE. IT'S DUMB. What's even more ridiculous is that the show actually managed to do this correctly - Longclaw is totally a hand-and-a-half sword because you can comfortably place one hand high up and another on the pommel. The jury is still out on if you can screw it off and throw it at a potential enemy, however.

HeartsBane is one of the coolest Valyrian Steel swords ever made. It has a superior look and it’s also the protector of the men’s realm.

The Joffrey/Catspaw thing is left out of the show fwiw. We’re supposed to think that Littlefinger did it, I think.

Isn't there a knife/razor that is Valyrian steel that is the Bolton's blade? I think the books mention that they use it to flay their victims.

A bastard sword is shorter than a general longsword in both blade and handle. Every bastard sword is a longsword but not every longsword is a bastard sword. It is shorter to provide the user a viable one handed grip on the blade where as with a normal longsword using one hand alone would be inefficient due to the blade and handles length.

"Longclaw is a bastard sword which means it's a bit longer than a long sword"
I know that's what GRRM's said but it doesn't even make sense why they'd call them 'bastard swords' in that case - I just think he's covering up his own fuck up and that just makes me
even more.

Not sure what your point it but technically the standard one-handed swords of the medieval period were call arming swords. The next "size" up is the two handed long sword which must be used with 2 hands in normal fighting styles. The type of sword that is in between is called a bastard. Normally bastards are wielded two handed but can be with one but that is atypical. However because long claw is valerian steel it is much lighter and could be wielded like an arming sword. The biggest swords were great swords and they were used in a completely different style of fighting because of its size which was normally as tall or taller than the man wielding it. Modern historical fantasy has confused alot about the classification of swords, but I think GRRM is correct.

If the long night happened thousands of years ago, before the discovery of dragons and the rise of the Valyrian freehold, how did they have "dragonsteel"? They were the First Men, there was no steel or iron working in Westeros at all until the Andal invasion.

Joffrey named his sword the Widow's Wail. Only one widow wailed and that was Catelyn whose husband Ned owned Ice. Joffrey's own widow didn't really wail for him. She knew he was a cunt.

'A bastard sword meaning it's a bit longer than a normal long sword' long sword were exclusively two handed weapons and were longer than bastard sword what you were thinking of was an arming sword which is a one handed sword and are often mixed up with long swords
