Green Ronin Publishing has announced its publishing schedule, which includes the debut of the long-awaited A Song of Ice and Fire RPG, through summer 2009. The releases also include several Mutants & Masterminds products, as well as a book celebrating the best in gaming.
Originally scheduled for an August 2008 release (see “Green Ronin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire RPG’”), the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying: Adventures in the Seven Kingdoms, based on the popular series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, is a 224-page, full-color, hardcover book that introduces the united kingdom of Westeros. The game casts players as nobles of one of the great houses striving for power and wealth, whether on the battlefield or in the courts of King Robert. It releases in March with an MSRP of $34.95.
The core rulebook will be followed in April by the A Song of Ice and Fire Narrator’s Kit ($19.95), containing a hardback screen for game masters, poster map, and 16-page booklet.
May brings Peril at King’s Landing ($19.95), a 96-page softcover adventure book that can stand alone or as part of a continuing campaign.
Finally, the A Song of Ice and Fire Campaign Guide ($39.95) arrives in July and serves as a detailed source of information about the major places and players in Westeros.
