A Game of Thrones: The RPG
White Wolf Publishing and Guardians of Order are joining forces to publish the A Game of Thrones Roleplaying Game based on the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novel series by George R.R. Martin. White Wolf will publish and distribute the game under its Sword & Sorcery imprint, while Guardians of Order will be in charge of creation and design. The A Game of Thrones RPG will be available in hobby and bookstores in the fall of 2005 in time for the release of A Feast for Crows, the fourth volume in Martin's series.
The new RPG will be available in two different editions, a deluxe 576-page Limited Edition (msrp $99.95) in September and 496-page Standard Edition ($49.95) in October. Both editions will be printed in full color on premium quality paper with high quality hardcover bindings and a poster-size color pull-out map of the continent of Westeros.
I liked the first book; didn't care for the second and decided to stop there. I don't think I'll be interested in the RPG, but the series presents an interesting world. I might be able to mine it for ideas. And Liz liked the books much more than I did... Hmmm.
