    I read the description and when I read ‘Quiver Case’ I thought ‘Yea, right. Quiver design case perhaps but not an actual quiver’.

    Then, lo and behold it’s an ACTUAL FUCKING QUIVER.

    Still, not worth $129.99 though.

    Well, technically, fall starts in Sept, so it could come out before 11-11-11. Maybe even November. Amazon still has it listed for August 24, but I don’t see it until at least the last week of Sept or early Oct personally. But then again, I am not psychic unfortunately. :p

    I believe I possess a similar ranger’s quiver. I don’t think I have to tell you how I got it :D

  6. I Am A Troll

    That would have normally been the case. There are consequences for trespassing troll land, you know.

    Unfortunately the fool had a youngling with him. I forced him to relinquish his weapons. No more. Curse my merciful heart. Aye, as the elders say, it is not the way of the trolls to show pity.
