ICE & FIRE role playing game

I have reached a final settlement with Guardians of Order, the Canadian games company that published the role-playing game based on A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE before going under last year.

We're now all square, and that license has officially expired. It is not the ending that I would have hoped for, but I'm glad to have concluded things amicably.

As part of our settlement, I have acquired the remaining stock of the deluxe, limited edition of the RPG worldbook, a huge and lavishly illustrated hardcover. I will be listing the book for sale on the "Signed Books" page of my website in the very near future, but I thought I'd give my Not-a-Bloggers a little advance notice.

If any of you want to snag a copy, the price is $100, which includes book rate shipping within the United States (overseas is more). This is a big and beautiful book with lots of great artwork, and tons of background material on the world of Westeros that may be of interest even to those who do not play role-playing games. And needless to say, I would be glad to sign and inscribe the book on request. You can get a look at the cover and some of the graphics by scrolling back through the Archives sections of the news page.

(Please email if you are interested, don't comment about it here).

There will be another RPG in the future. I am considering offers from several other companies right now, and expect to have a new license to announce within the next couple of months,

I think an Amber-style diceless system would be perfect. ;)

Amber would definitely work better than D20, but mostly because it stays out of the way of the players, as guided by the GM.

I've seen people use HeroQuest to good effect.

Personally, I'd hope for something with an explicit scene-conflict structure (mirroring the short, conflict-focused chapters in the books), where motivations matter, and where the game allows you to directly intertwine the personal issues with the large-scale intrigue and politics.

chgriffen, I have similar hopes to yours. My company has a proposal in the works with GRRM's agent.

Hmmm, I too would be a big fan of a drpg option for this game.

One thing about GOO, is that they made a pretty book, AGoT and Nobilis are two of the prettiest games in my collection.

GoO didn't design any part of Nobilis -- they just distributed the two Nobilis books after Hogshead Publishing stopped publishing [and then the Hogshead name was sold to another owner, who published a bunch of d20 books but appears to no longer be doing anything else.]
