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,

This doesn't really pertain to this that or the other; however, i was just wondering if there was a poster map of westeros other than the one that comes with the one book. I would really love one to display on my wall, but I didn't really want the one with the book because it wasn't as big as i'd have liked it to be. anyway, see, i told you this didn't pertain to anything. i was just wondering.

By "the one book", do you mean the poster map in the RPG?

There's one other poster map, which you can be found in Dragon #307. I'm pretty sure it's the same size as the one in the GoO RPG, however.

Oh, and I should also add that not only is it more or less the same size (I think, anyways) as GoO's map, but it's not really as pretty or as informative.

I'm the creator of said map. I'm trying to contact Mr. Martin about the legality of selling copies, but I haven't received any response yet. Most of the art was reverted back to the artists when GoO defaulted on their contract. Some of the more generic pieces (man with sword) might be able to be sold elsewhere, but I'm out of luck (and a good deal of money) with the map, since it's pretty much one market.
If anyone knows a better way to get in touch with George, please let me know.
