BioWare and Epic Weapons sent out a joint press release this afternoon announcing plans to sell a line of Dragon Age swords (much like the Frostmourne sword they sold to World of Warcraft fans), with the first twenty being auctioned off over the next eight days in case anyone needs a thick, heavy, and sharp gift to impale or present someone with this holiday season. Both the Darkspawn Sword and the Grey Warden Render Sword retail for $349 plus shipping, so selling a kidney may be required:
