    How can I learn more about A Song of Ice and Fire?

    The best way is, of course, to read the books. We prefer all players to have read at least A Game of Thrones.

    But even if you have read all the books, keeping all the information about the series fresh in your mind is easier said than done. The Citadel is the section of Westeros where we have...

Resources

    Becalmed

    The wind does not stir, and has not done so for three days, now. Blackwater Bay is calm, a gray sea covered by a gray fog. Ships lie in that bay, and at the docks, waiting for a breath of air from the west to carry them out to sea, and to begin the long journey to Dorne. In the halls of the Red...

  • Application forms for the various types of characters can be found here. Please don't be put off by the word "application"; for Open characters it is a very quick and easy formality.
