Westeros goes digital in the Game of Thrones RPG

Man I love Game of Thrones. I haven't read the books but if there's one thing I've learned from the show, it's that George R. R. Martin is really messed up. But regardless, I love watching his messed up mind at work.

That was the trailer for the Game of Thrones-based RPG game coming out soon. What really interests me about the trailer (whihc mostly features running forward in different types of clothing) is the piece of copy "Play as different characters and live parallel storylines." It's a pretty bold proposition, but definitely the right property to try it. I'd be really interested to see how my efforts within the Stark clan might ripple in to and challenge my progress as a Lanister.
