watched a few videos showing if obsidian (dragonglass in Game of Thrones) can be cast into weapons. apparently, it can't be, or at least not as durable or sharp as the ones in GoT.

I think what they plausibly did was coat their hand weapons in it. For the arrows and spears they could have just presumably flaked them like flint to produce pure obsidian arrow- and spearheads.

it was shown in GoT that they melted obsidian and poured them into molds to make weapons, even spear heads apparently.

in the YT videos i saw it was demonstrated to be difficult to melt obsidian in the first place, then the resulting casts were quite brittle and dull.

then again, IIRC GoT got criticized for its wrong method of reforging Ned Stark's Valyrian steel blade into two smaller blades by melting it and then putting it in molds.

but yeah as you said, flaking is a known method of producing arrow and spear heads. makes me wonder why the producers didn't go this route. maybe to make Gendry more useful lol.

I am still in a state of shock.

After guiding Marvel's Avengers through Endgame, directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are diving into the world of Magic: The Gathering for Netflix.

Netflix and Hasbro announced Monday that the Russo brothers are among the executive producers of the first animated adaptation based on the long-popular trading-card game. The adaptation will revolve around the magic-wielding Planeswalkers.

"We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us," the Russos said in the announcement.
