ICE & FIRE role playing game

Spain
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,

Online MMORPG anytime soon?
Hi there,

I'm a first time poster both in your livejournal and livejournal itself. I love your series! I am just starting the 4th book and am hoping the 5th is just months away.

Anyhow, my question is if you have considered selling rights to a company to produce an online MMORPG of your series. Online games are extremely popular and is a multi billion dollar a year business. With the popularity of your books and their target audience I am quite sure that if you get the right company to make the game it could mean big dollars for you and a lot of fun for the fans as well.

Thanks a lot, and if you have time to comment i'd really appreciate it. I must say that you are one of my favorite authors to date. I know (or better say I think I understand) how complex and difficult it must be to tell such an incredible epic tale keeping all your facts straight, and characters in perspective, and you handle it masterfully.

Also read on here HBO will be doing your series..... There is a god!
