Green Ronin Has Big Plans for Ice and Fire RPG

In their round-up of their plans for 2012, roleplaying game publisher Green Ronin spend a good deal of time discussing their Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game. The huge boom in interest in all things Ice and Fire thanks to HBO’s Game of Thrones has seriously depleted their stock of the Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying rule book. Instead of reprinting it, they’re announcing a brand new edition, called the A Game of Thrones edition, which will include the entirety of the Peril of King’s Landing adventure that was separately released.

Besides being full color, the RPG will feature a brand new cover from the amazing Michael Komarck, whose provided some of the finest artwork for “A Song of Ice and Fire” to date. Green Ronin’s plans extend past that May release of the AGoT edition, however.

Here’s what else they’re planning:

  • Summer: The Night’s Watch, a source book for the defenders on the Wall.
  • Late 2012: A SIFRP Starter Set for new gamers.
  • More generally: The system used for SIFRP will get an official name—the Chronicle system—and will open the way for future products not tied to the “A Song of Ice and Fire” setting that use its system.

Definitely something to look forward to RPG fans.
