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,

Oh My Gawd!! Why aren't you working on the book!!!111 I'm an idiot!

(Figured I'd slide that in before someone else did.)

I enjoyed this book, though I've never actually played it. (Much like the board game, alas.) The Northeast BWB is way too interested in alcohol to find time for unabashed geekery.

But I for one want more merchandise. Action figures. A massively multiplayer online game. A Strong Belwas sex doll.

You know, the good stuff.

I just realized I look like a total fanboy with that avatar. My bad.

It's just truth in advertising, you freaky fanboi. :p

But now I'm thinking that at the next BwB meet, we simply must bust out the RPG book or board game. If only to shed the tainted spectre of being single-minded drunkards.

Yes, I'm sure you can turn it into a drinking game with little or no extra effort. Everyone take a shot any time someone says "A Lannister always pays his debts!"

That would be awesome!

(Random thought: OMG, can you imagine the drinking games based on the HBO series? Everyone take a shot everytime someone says "Winter is coming!")

Fo' sho ' , mrs . Not everyone would play but they could laugh and point ...

Wait, we DON'T want to be known as single-minded drunkards? I'm not sure everyone got that memo...*snort*

I played it a few times and it was good. The best bit was the DM handing out the players a print-out saying it was a synopsis of the first book taken from Wikipedia and my reply, "Yes, I wrote it." (although I think Happy Ent did a pass on it later that made it a lot better) The best thing about the game is that, unlike D&D, if you get hurt you bleed a lot. Makes things a bit more interesting.

Strong Belwas sex doll.

All. Over. That.

But I'd be happy with the MMO as well. Cersei is soooo Horde. I'll be forming a guild... ;)
