On the subject of the Vorpal Sword - the description that it went "snicker-snack" always made me think it was more of a giant scissor. . .and that is how I desribe the sword in Aquerra setting. . . it can ONLY be a great sword and it two snapping blades. .. Because the method to make them is lost to history.

The Jabberwock was immune to all weapons except vorpal ones, I seem to remember some fairly high MR and the dreaded Burble attack (no I'm not being sarcastic, it really was a pretty awesome attack). Unfortunately I don't have that MC so my memory may be a bit spotty.
Amber: Shadow Knight has some small blurbs on both Jabberwock and Bandersnatch...making them out to be mortal enemies, short descriptions of the Shadow they live in...but no stats for 'em.

How the @#$% did he get the second paragraph from the first?From TSD:
For example, Wallace starts with this famous verse from "Jabberwocky":
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
And transmutes it into:
Bet I beat my glands til,
With hand-sword I slay the evil gender.
A slimey theme; borrow gloves,
And masturbate the hog more!
