Telltale Two Trailer

Telltale Games has just released a trailer for the second episode of their GAME OF THRONES videogame.

This one is called "The Lost Lords."  (Hey, good title).

If they had you in the game as a cameo, but voiced by someone else (if they had lines for your character) would they tell you? I feel like they should do something like that ;)

The Lost Lords!
The lost lords as in Benjen Stark and Gerion Lannister? Am I right?

Re: The Lost Lords!
No I don't think the game will cover those parts. The lost lord might refer to that Forrester in Meereen or something like that.

Re: The Lost Lords!
They are not lords, annd never was, Gerion was Tywin's brother, maybe a knight but nothing more, and as a brother of the night's watch Benjen could never take a title.

Furthermore: since the firstborn of Lord Forrester died and the twins and what happend to his younger son kinda leaves him out of the picture, I think at least one of the lost lords would be the secondborn son of Lord Forrester, who if returned from exile would be the rightful lord of Ironwrath, if they can somehow bypass his sister in Kings Landing as heir.

Who the other lord is, I have no idea of, maybe Theon? After all he is the Lord of the Iron Islands (by law of the green lands).

Or even more possible Jora Mormont, exiled lord of Bear island. But I ramble on :)

Can't wait for this game!I thought it was going to be released today and for the past 7 hours I watched steam like Jon watched the Wall.Great story althought you can tell what is going to happen.I mean...after the Purple Wedding hard times are coming for Tyrion and when you play you should keep some distance from him.I play on 3 slots,in the first I do what I feel is right,in the next one what I think would be the best course of action and in the last one I make the make choices contrary to those of the first episode.

P.S.George,I love your books!Thank you for the best fantasy story ever!

@grrm Do you ever play those games? And, if so, what do you think about them?
Jan. 22nd, 2015 11:21 pm (UTC)
Highly recommend these games. Really enjoyed the first episode, can't wait for the second. Kudos to the Telltale writers for a finding a perfect angle into the story.

Hey George
Have you had a chance to play the game? Or at least see portions of it?

Its really impressive. It fits in really well with the show and while I'm a book series purist at heart, this game immerses you in the universe as well as the TV series.

I would definitely recommend the game for those who love the show :)

I, too, would be really interested to know if you've actually played the first episode. I remember reading that you're not a gamer, but this is kind of a special case. Most Telltale games are more visual novels than anything else anyway, less interested in gameplay and more interested in your choices and telling a story.

When I first heard Telltale was making a GoT game, I have to admit I was kind of hoping it would take place in Westerosi history, like during Robert's Rebellion. That would allow them to tell their own story without getting too entangled in the TV plotlines, as well as give us a chance to meet a young Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and so forth. It might have even introduced some of the Unsullied to Rhaegar Targaryen, a name which I'm guessing mostly produces blank stares amongst them right now.

Ah well. Long story short, if you ever have a night where you plan to watch a movie, consider playing the first episode of this instead. It's worth it.

Question about the Wall
Me and a few friends are kinda arguing about the Gift/New Gift.

Who do the people of the gift swear fealty to?

I am of the opinion that the holdings of the gift etc, swear fealty to the Night's Watch. My friends think they don't, maybe to the Starks/Warden of the North.

I would extremely happy for any assistance with this question.

I loved the first episode so much. Seriously can't wait for the next one!
Jan. 23rd, 2015 09:13 am (UTC)
Oh man!
I resisted and kept resisting this game. I don't have the time for it and season 5 will be on soon, so I'll have my GoT fix. I also really need to get this PC to a friend for repairs.

But, despite all that, after seeing this video and reading some of the reviews of the game, dammit, I guess I am going to HAVE to get it. Damn me, damn my eyes! This world you created is ever-expanding Mr. Martin!

And also, on Jan. 30, I am driving 2 hours to Franklin, TN to see episode 9 and 10 from season 4 at my first IMAX theater experience! My boss is even going with me! Love it!

Do you know the history of the games? I mean, what is going on it and stuff? Have you played it or have plans to do so?

So excited for this!! Cannot wait.

Screenplay of Fevre Dream
I am new to your writing, Mr Martin, having read Fevre Dream as a Christmas present. It read so well I could see it as a film, and after finishing the book I have considered suitable actors for the roles.
Has there ever been a screenplay for this book? If not, would you consider permitting one?

I'm sorry to use this blog to reach you but couldn't find a commercial contact for you.

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
Yes, I wrote a FEVRE DREAM screenplay back in the 90s, when the book was under option at the Hollywood Pictures division of Disney. Never made, obviously... but if the film ever does get greenlighted, that's the script we'll use.

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
If I may be excused for intruding on an already tangential discussion, I can't help wondering what old Uncle Walt would have made of the kind of films being made under the Disney banner (albeit disguised) since his demise, such as Pulp Fiction. It's even less conducive to his image as a cuddly grandfather figure, however, to consider that Disney might have taught graduate classes at the Tywin Lannister School of Business Management, being prone to hire thugs to beat up strikers, for example, and while perhaps slightly more careful in their business associations these days, his successors are, from what I've heard, as hard-headed as any in the industry.

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
"the Tywin Lannister School of Business Management" – That made me laugh aloud! At one point, I had the misfortune to work in admin in a Business School (at a university), and left as I was on the point of an ulcer and/or nervous breakdown. I strongly suspect my line-manager had trained there…

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
Just the thought of business administration is enough to bring me to the point of a nervous breakdown, never mind who the tutors might be.

As for Old Tywin's establishment, I understand it offers some very bespoke courses, as well as all the tips you need to get ahead of your rivals, i.e. your rivals' heads. For favoured clients, it can even arrange colour-themed weddings, I've heard.

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
Surely that's 'Frey & Sons, Wedding Planners' – discount on funerals if you order at the same time?

Re: Screenplay of Fevre Dream
Of course, though I think they rebranded as Frey & Sons, Grandsons, Great-Grandsons & the odd Bastard. Some of their most celebrated events are reputed to be co-productions, however, drawing on the Tywin Lannister School's specialist expertise. (A whispered rumour has it that one advanced course, not included in the official prospectus, teaches that 'Guest Right is for wimps & losers'. A PR agency retained by Lord Tywin and headed by one P. Baelish has denounced this as 'scurrilous, malicious, abhorrent, and...most intriguing', while Baelish himself was heard to add, "Sorry, I can't make it to dinner. It's a take-away for me.")

about the writing..
I played the first episode and am looking forward to the next release. I was curious. Were you involved in the writing process for this game?
Jan. 30th, 2015 02:55 pm (UTC)
I loved chapter 1! I feel like I really got to experience what it would be like to navigate the political waters of highborn Westeros.

Trying to say the right thing to Cersei is like trying to figure out the right way to pet a rabid racoon!
