New to the series? Read our spoiler-free review of A Game of Thrones.
The A Game of Thrones RPG has been pushed back from its intended August 2004 release date to a fall release date. Guardians of Order, the makers of the game, states on their board that the reason is that until GRRM has finished A Feast for Crows, he does not have enough time to work with them on the RPG.
As previously mentioned, the trade paperback collection of "The Hedge Knight" comic book will contain additional material in the form of a short story. We have now learned that this story will be a comic book adaptation of the the story of the battle of the Redgrass Field as told in "The Sworn Sword".
GRRM’s official site has been updated with news about three upcoming editions of Fevre Dream, one of his earlier novels and a very good one at that. Not only will Bantam Books do a reprint, but there will also be a limited editiom from Subterranean Press (the publisher of GRRM: A RRetrospective and a 10-issue comic adaption from Avatar Comics.
Reporting from the GAMA Trade Show, GamingReport.com notes that Guardians of Order have announced a few more details about their upcoming A Game of Thrones RPG. The corebook is slated for an August 2004 release, with supplements due autumn 2004 and spring and summer 2005.

The A Game of Thrones boardgame, from Fantasy Flights Games, is being expanded with additional rules and components which will cover, for example, House Martell and the ports of Westeros. The A Clash of Kings expansion
