I'm officially hooked. Hands down the best fantasy series to come out in years. Anyone else following this one?

Yep, and I got my girlfriend hooked, too! So much so that we're both reading the novel (we're at a different points in the book)!

Now that the first season is almost over you're talking??? Wink

I've been waiting for this season ever since they started talking about it, me and my whole group. My wife loves it as well and is strongly considering reading the books 'cause she doesn't want to wait now almost a year for the second season Grin

The books are great, and after about 4 years the 5th one is finally coming out (though I remember very little from the occurances of past books)... :-/

I've read the novels about 4-5 times now (yes all of them).  hehe.  I've been delighted by the series so far.  I just went out and bought the A Song of Ice and Fire RPG and the campaign guide, and I have had the Guardians of Order Game of Thrones RPG for awhile now.

It's all great stuff.

I should start reading it, but I promised myself I would finish Legends of Anglerre first.

It's a pretty good RPG for the d20 system, a little kludgy in a few spots but all in all quite good at giving the feel for the setting.

I liked their d20 adaptation as well. So much so that I adopted some of the rules to my Midnight house rules

After hearing all this hype about it I finally broke down and watched it, and yes everyone was right.  I'm officially hooked now.
