A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Returns to Print

The core rulebook from Green Ronin Publishing will return to print, and new supplements are on the way.

Westeros is a dangerous place to be a noble. Or a knight. Or a peasant, really, let's be honest. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series is a cutthroat world of mystery, intrigue, backstabbing and all-out war, and Green Ronin Publishing brings all of that to the table with the offical RPG adaptation. A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying has been out of print for months, but Green Ronin announced July 30 that the publisher has finally extended its license with George R.R. Martin. With the new agreement, the core rulebook is going back to the print. The second printing of A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying: A Game of Thrones Edition releases on August 4.

Green Ronin also announced the next supplement for A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying. Due out in early 2015, Dragon's Hoard is a 160-page adventure for the RPG. Judging by the family crest featured on the cover, the adventure will involve the Targaryen noble family, former rulers of the Seven Kingdoms. Currently available from Green Ronin is the adventure Peril at King's Landing, and sourcebooks for building new noble houses or playing men of the Night's Watch.

Green Ronin has published a free Quick Start guide for A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, which introduces the basic rules and world, and few sample characters. The game is played using dice pools of standard six-sided dice. Characters are also shaped by the use of Destiny points, which can be spent to affect the game world or improve a character. Destiny points are similar but not identical to the concepts of Edge, used in Shadowrun, or fate points, used in Fate Core and other Fate games.
