Westeros in Italy

Just wanted to share this great picture from this year's Lucca Games and Comics Show in Italy.

Wonderful costumes... you guys are great... I'm sorry I wasn't there to party with you.

The Lucca Show is the San Diego Comicon of Europe, held in a walled medieval city midway between Florence and Pisa. A great event. I attended once, back in 2005, and I mean to get back there one of these days. It just wasn't possible this year.

But it's nice to see that Westeros was so well represented.

Extra cool session
I am happy 4 u, but not happy for me, because there are no such cool things in slovenia ;( .I hope the Song of Ice and Fire will beacome so popular in slovenia too, but my own prediction is that we are too small.Kepp on with the nice work!!!

Maybe you know, you have a lot of fans in Russia.
I know what this summer in Russia will be the role playing game based on the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' and previous novels. There will be modelled about 30 locations of Westeros. Battles, storming the castles, costumes, economics, politics, science, culture, religion etc. The expected number of participants more then one thousand.
It seems it will be something amazing.

I think San Diego Comicon of Europe is Angouleme... but it's only my oppinion..

George, we waited for you!
I was in Lucca this year... Some months ago I read an interview of yours in which you said maybe you would have been at Lucca comics and games. We hoped 'till last moment to see you :).
Anyway, it was great! Hope to see you there one day!
