A solid addition to the RPG library. I like the flexibility of the rules, which keeps all the stuff I like about d10 roll-and-keep (my preferred system) while eliminating ridiculousness like calling raises. Some of the advanced rules, like for applying bonus die from one trait to another, made perfect sense, too. Overall, a better system than the Game of Thrones d20 RPG, and one I'm looking forward to running correctly (I'm sort of winging it right now, but I think the players are really liking ...more

As someone who is at least a casual fan of the Game of Thrones series [1] and certainly a fan of tabletop role playing games [2], this book was tailor-made for a reader like myself, putting the popular fictional world of the series in a form that would not be particularly demanding for those who like to roleplay and imagine themselves as one of the noble houses within that complicated universe.  This book, to its considerable credit, does manage to create a game engine for the universe that is c ...more

With the upcoming HBO mini-series based on A Game of Thrones, there is buzz again about George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series.

The other day, my gaming group tried out the quickstart rules, and I was quite impressed. At no time did I feel lost, or that I was just playing a generic fantasy role playing game. We were all members of the same house, a young lord, who has taken over the house at the age of 14; his uncle, the proud knight; his bastard brother who dreams of one day b

So, its a well thought out, and well written system. I have the pocket edition, and thats why it gets 3 stars instead of 4. The pocket edition apparently has extra rules in it compared to the original, however, they also forgot to put in the poison cost table (I had to pencil them in from a PDF version of the original) and they didn't include the stats for The Others in this edition either, so I had to print off a copy of them from the PDF of the original. Character creation takes a while, but m ...more

Have been stoked watching Game of Thrones Season 1 on HBO. So much so that I decided to read this RPG book and run a game for my pals. There is a great multi-page overview of the history of Westeros, which was awesome. The rule system is interesting and tries to strike the balance between focusing on the intrigue/conspiratorial elements of GoT, while also allowing combat and epic battles. Hoping I'll get to play it soon!

Great system. Put's you into GRRM's Westeros. The system really adds to the sensation and suspension of disbelief while playing or Narrating the game.

A really cool idea for a roleplaying setting. I hope to run a campaign in this setting sometime in the future.
