    OK, for those of you aSoIaF junkies ;), Nikky has given me permission to start aSoIaF RPG. So... w00t! However, we're going to have hammer out the time and place, so START BRAINSTORMING!

    Thank you. :D

    It'd be nice to get input, you know, because I'm a fairly new fan of aSoIaF. So our experts WILL come and help... won't they? If they don't... well, let's just call it "facing the consequences." :p

    Any ideas? I'm flat empty, for the moment.

    Oh god yes, count me in !

    I don't know when we can set it though, I honestly can't picture a good time. What about....the beginning of AGOT ? We can all have our characters running around, doing whatever, and when the War Of The Five Kings breaks out, we can all choose sides, or do whatever ?

    Those on the Wall could defend against Wildlings, or we could even have characters go Ranging with Benjen Stark and have our own bit of fan-fiction going ?

    FanFic sounds good to me, as we really don't know much about the history of aSoIaF. However, we probably shouldn't use George R. R. Martin's major characters except in passing. Copyright and all that...

    The one thing that sucks is that women don't play a very large role in fighting. Are we allowed to play boys and vice versa?

    Ofcourse you can, but there are some women who fight. Those Mormont women (their name escapes me) and ofcourse, Brienne Of Tarth. She even beat Jaime, and his skill is quite incrediable. Perhaps, female characters could come from Asshai or Old Valyria, we don't know much about their cultures so perhaps women do fight there ? We know they have magical priests and such, just look at Melisandre.

    Perhaps we could even set it during Balon Greyjoy's rebellion, since we also don't know much about what happened, or even in Robert's Rebellion, we could fight on the Trident and see Rhaegar (the man !) get killed.

    I don't know, im just throwing ideas about.

    Preferably, at least for me who hasn't finished the books, it would be easier to do a time that we haven't been told much about. Just a general (incredibly general) idea. :)

    OK, it looks like we'r going to have to wait until more people finish reading the books...

    But YES! RHAEGAR! :p

    So throw in any odd ideas we have here...

    I'll think about my character, but we can't do much until we have more people.

    Ah, my faithful convert. :D

    I think this is going to be hard RPG to make. Very hard actually. Perhaps we could centre the story on the Wall, make some reason for us to go Ranging and we can fight off the Wildlings and uncover a plot by The Others/Widlings/Giants/Whatever.

    I think that would be the easiest course, ofcourse, the Wall doesn't take women, so all the girl's would have to play men, or be female wildlings like Ygritte or something.

    Yeah, you converted me. So go ahead, gloat some more. ;)

    I think we either ought to center (centre for those crazy Brits and Aussies :p) it on the Wall or on the Trident when Rhaegar died. :(

    Hey, it just wasn't with that banner! (although that was probably 50%...;)) When I was rereading the books, I decided Rhaegar was pure awesome, AFTER, of course, EMT told me that Rhaegar was awesome...

    Hahaha, everyone seems to love that banner/av set, I spose I should bring it back for all the ladies on TFF.

    Now, the idea of the Trident is pretty cool, but Rhaegar has to die ! Nyoooo ! And, well, after the events of the Trident, there wouldn't be much for us to do. Hmm, perhaps we could be on Rhaegars side (since he is so awesome and all) and then get captured by Robert and sent to the Wall for our crimes (of fighting against him).

    Like I said, I think the idea of an ASOIAF RPG is great, but it's gonna be hard to pull it off.

    Well I'm only finishing Steel and Snow so I won't join right away. I think before the books would be a good idea, or in a place we don't actually see such as the Siege of Storm's End would be good, otherwise you'd have to twist too much to make it fit in with the canon text.

    Hmm, the Siege Of Storm's End would actually work out pretty well, as it spans quite a large time. The Battle At The Ruby Ford also occurs somewhat around the same time, so it could all work out. Perhaps we can do all the ideas at the same time. Some people can be on the Night's Watch, uncovering a Wildling plot, to say, pull the Wall down, as those darn Wildlings are always trying to do. While others can fight beside Rhaegar or Robert, and Stannis and Davos.

    Odd that Turin or Nienor hasn't posted here yet, I thought they'd definently want to join.

    Ah, dear, its a loooooooooooong story. Its a series by George R.R Martin. Its three books at the moment (A Game Of Thrones, A Clash Of Kings and A Storm Of Swords) but its probably going to be either 6 or 7, according to GRRM. The next book is out in June/July and will be called A Feast For Crows.

    I decided to revive this thread, as there are several more people who have read A Song of Ice and Fire. Anyone else interested?

    ehh, I think it would be fun, but every RPG I've been in has died a slow and terrible dead. It's a bit depressing.
