ASoIaF Miniatures

The series of pre-painted, collectible 1:18 scale miniatures will be released in September 2005. In January 2006, the line of 54 mm metal signature pieces will follow, and in the third quarter of 2006 the miniature game will debut.

AGoT RPG Update

Guardians of Order have published the second issue of their newsletter. Among other things, it reports that only 30 copies of the signed limited edition of the AGoT RPG remain. Unfortunately, the book will be delayed from March to May. In the meantime, a second preview of the RPG has also been made available.

Official Site Update

GRRM’s official site has been updated with information about a couple of upcoming limited editions: the A Game of Thrones RPG from Guardians of Order and the SF novella "Shadow Twin", which GRRM co-wrote with Gardner Dozois and Daniel Abraham, from Subterranean Press.

Limited Edition AGoT Update

Guardians of Order have published the first issue of their newsletter, which includes some information about the contents of the limited edition of the A Game of Thrones RPG. It also notes that 300 out of the 500 copies have now sold.

Guardians of Order News

Guardians of Order, the company producing the A Game of Thrones RPG, has posted a news announcement including some interesting information about the AGoT RPG. It also includes some not so great news; due to them being a Canadian company with incomes in US dollars and expenses in Canadian dollars, their profit has been smaller than expected this year, and they are now trying to raise money quickly to ensure that they will have the funds necessary to bring all of their planned products to the market. One way that they are trying to do this is via a sale of some of their titles, including some rarer ones, so if you have been considering picking up some of their titles, now is a very good time.

We certainly encourage everyone who is interested in the AGoT RPG to consider buying the limited edition. With a $30,000 art budget, we are expecting it to be gorgeous. And very, very faithful to GRRM’s books.
