A Game of Thrones RPG Limited Edition in preorder

The Game of Thrones RPG seems to have finally appeared on the horizon, as just announced the start of preorders for the game’s Deluxe Limited Edition. Described as 450 pages of full-color resource material, with a foil-embossed leatherette cover and a special dust jacket, the game was personally reviewed by George R.R. Martin for authenticity (which contributed to the delay in releasing it, no doubt), and signed for extra awe-inspiring power. The Deluxe version provides both d20 and Tri-Stat rules, and carries a $99.95 asking price, which many A Game of Thrones fans are surely reaching for right now. According to the website, we’ll actually be able to pick up the game in stores in March.
