    Default Star metal sword

    While the Giant recovers, XKCD gives us it's own take on the starmetal sword. Enjoy!

    I shall have to counter the xkcd comic with the following.

    Warning, TV tropes link below. (Having been warned the relevant info should be under the real life section as well as the general description of the trope).

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...hunderboltIron

    Of course with different varieties of meteorites, getting one that's a poor choice for sword smithing is a possibility.

    Of course, Sir Terry Pratchett (another author 'moderately' well-known for his fantasy writings), made his own star metal-infused sword when he was knighted.

    That is how "The Press" of Christchurch, New Zealand headlined that article. It made World Wide Words newsletter section of badly misworded quotes.

    To do a spoiler, surround it in spoiler tags like this:[spoiler]Darth Vadar is Skywalker's Father[/spoiler]. To show someone else how to do a spoiler, use noparse tags like this: [noparse][spoiler]Miko will stay Dead[/spoiler][/noparse]. To show someone else how to demonstrate spoiler tags, use multiple noparse tags like this [noparse][noparse][spoiler]Recursion is like recursion, only shorter[/spoiler][/noparse][/noparse]
