Check out an exceedingly detailed featurette on Dornish weaponry, which also just so happens to introduce the first good look at the "Sand Snakes" โ€” also known as Oberyn Martell's daughters. This is marvelous.

Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers), Obara (Keisha Castle-Hughes), and Nymeria Sand (Jessica Henwick) are the daughters of Oberyn Martell. And they are awesome as are their gorgeous weapons. In the video, weapons master Tommy Dunne takes us through each weapon of Dorne, including Areo Hotah's beautiful axe. Now some book readers my be upset that some of the weapons (and, I believe, birth mothers) have been changed for the television series, but it's still too early to tell if Tyene has all but abandoned her knowledge of poisons for daggers. We'll just have to wait and see.
