ASOIAF Related Websites
There are a lot of great A Song of Ice and Fire related websites out there we found use useful, and we feel they could benefit or be of some value to our visitors.
List of great ASOIAF related websites:
Game of Thrones Books: As its name implies, this website is a comprehensive resource that deals primarily with the books in the ASOIAF series: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. It provides a review of the series as a whole, along with a summary and review of each book. The site also relates the life and times of George R.R. Martin (GRRM), as well as the complete list of all his published novels. It is recommended for would-be readers who would like a sneak peek at GRRM’s bestselling books. The site also includes links to where each of the books can be purchased at the best possible price.
George R.R. Martin: The official website of American award-winning author George R.R. Martin, this website is replete with references and resources about the author’s entire body of work. While it does refer largely to his most famous series to date, A Song of Ice and Fire, it also contains a lot of personal information such as what he is currently reading, watching, and even messages from his fans. The language used in many of the pages, are written in the first person point of view making it feel as if the author is truly speaking to you. Design-wise, the website is simple and heavily tabbed. Although I am not fond of the color scheme it uses, the breadth of information contained in it makes up for whatever aesthetic shortcoming I think it has. For die hard, George R.R. Marti fans, located right smack in the middle of the screen (beside the author’s picture) is the announcements page where the latest author appearances as well as literary updates are put up. All in all, it is a solid website with a trove of background information on the many works of George R.R. Martin.
GRRM’s Live Journal: Another site which focuses on mainly the author George R.R. Martin rather than any of his specific body of work, this website is structured in a way where the author can directly communicate to his fans on everything from the latest deals on his works to his football preferences. Unlike most websites, this live journal gives the impression that the author is really there and a lot more accessible to fans. Aesthetically, the site is pretty straightforward and content, rather than looks, is the main attraction of the site. Staying true to his reputation of being accommodating to his fans, George R.R. Martin has utilized the world wide web to not only hear what his fans have to say, but to effectively communicate back to them.
A Podcast of Ice and Fire : This website offers a unique kind of fan service, in both content and delivery. Fans looking a serious and overly detailed encyclopedia of ASOIAF should stay away. Inspired by the Harry Potter-devoted Mugglecast, this site offers the longest running podcast dedicated solely to ASOIAF. At least, that’s what it aims to do – although the occasional jibe about Pokemon pops out now and then. What it actually is, is a prime audible source for fun and sometimes a ridiculous discussions about the ASOIAF series, including news, theories, opinions, and lowbrow humor. It’s entertaining, amusing, and by no means claims that it is correct in any way. If you are the type who likes joking around with your friends about your favorite series, then sign up, listen in, and be part of this oddball experience.
A Game of Thrones RPG : This site is the unofficial forum for Game Of Thrones Role-playing games (GOT RPGs) and is not to be confused with the online text-based RPG, Blood of Dragons. Instead, this site focuses on discussions related to any and all RPGs that use the ASOIAF setting as a backdrop. It has all the resources needed for someone who wants to play or run a game. It has forums dedicated to the rules of the d20-based OGL A Game of Thrones RPG, other rule systems, and a variety of settings information such as timelines and houses. Its latest thread deals with sample campaigns that were and could be used as basis for future games.
The Brotherhood Without Banners : The Brotherhood without Banners (BwB) is a GRRM fan group whose mission is to bring together fans of ASOIAF for fun, discussions, and parties. They were named after outlaw group in the book – a collection of squires, knights, and warriors who fight the Lannister rule in the name of the former King Robert. The origins of the BwB fan group begin with some online friends and ASOIAF fans getting together for the 2001 WorldCon. Sometime during the night, GRRM and this group embarked on a quest for Pat’s cheesesteak, which ended with them being knighted and starting a grand tradition of ASOIAF fandom. Unlike other fan groups, there are no monetary dues – any fan of ASOIAF is free to join. The BwB site lists everything you need to know about the group, its membership, as well as upcoming events and appearances.
