A Game of Thrones: D20-Based Open Gaming

A Game of Thrones: D20-Based Open Gaming RPG

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective wall. To the south, the King’s powers are failing, and his enemies are emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctant

    I haven’t gamed in more than 10 years, and don’t really plan on starting again – but this book is worth buying for ANY fan of Song of Ice & Fire series.

    Gorgeous artwork & fascinating bios of the characters of George R.R. Martin’s books are the main highlights of the book for non-gamers – but the more you delve into the mechanics of the game, the more insights into the world it reveals.

    And another pleasant surprise – an introduction including a very detailed & impressive overview of the history of fanstasy writing. Given me lots of new (to me) writers to check out.

    There is only one thing you have to know: no Spellcraft skill because magic is a legend or it is a dead.

    I redesign the character sheet (the one it came with sucked which is the only complaint I have about it) and it brought a tear to my eye not having to worry about spell slots or any of that sort of mess.

    No magic, magic items, Power Word: Kills or some god coming down to smite you. It is just you, the enemy and the ground in-between. You make your own in this world, you forge your way through either might or wisdom, sword or diplomacy.

    Like a great man, a Giant of a man some might say, once said, “It is not so much what we do as why we do it.” When you could run away in fear for your life but you chose to stand and regain your honour, right your wrongs and possible make your world a better place to be even it it meant losing your own life, then you know you have struck gold when it comes to a roleplaying campaign.

    Sure it has all the levels, skills points and the like but to be honest, I never cared about the levels in this game. I think whatever age or level we start off with is fine by me.

    If you are a D20 vet and wanting to try this, take time to learn how Reputation and Influence works. It is a little different but it adds a lot to the world.

    If for nothing else, my brother, “Mister Casual About All Things Gaming”, can’t stop talking about the game. That is for the first time in 15 years. That is the greatness of A Song of Ice and Fire.

    This game system is fantastic and a wonderful adaptation of d20. I haven’t read the books it is based on but I have found the rules system is a great addition to my Forgotten Realms campaign. I look forward to combining it with the Paizo Pathfinder RPG when it comes out.
