Contrary to the Stark slogan, winter isn't coming, it's going, but then winters here don't last for years on end and we don't have to worry about bands of marauding wights charging over Hadrian's wall every time it snows. Westeros is a tough place to grow old. If the wildling bandits and the wolves don't get you, there's always the chance of a treacherous lord's knife in your spine. Cyanide's Game of Thrones RPG is going to have to be pretty expansive encompass the political turmoil and casual brutality of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

The latest trailer and screenshots show a fort belonging to the Lord of Castlewood. He stood on the side of the mad king, Aerys Targaryen, during the uprising that crushed him. That makes him an unpopular man, but Castlewood will act as a safe haven for your character, Ser Alester. Take a tour of the Lord of Castlewood's abode and check out a really ugly dog with these screenshots.

When Cyanide first started showing off their upcoming Song of Ice and Fire RTS, A Game of Thrones: Genesis, our first reaction was one of surprise. A real time strategy? Surely the best way to experience the cut throat world of A Game of Thrones is to get up close and personal with the despicable, traitorous denizens of Westeros and experience the political wrangling and uncompromising violence of the world first hand.

In fact, Cyanide's French studio is working on an RPG that might do just the trick, though for now there's basically no information on what the Game of Thrones RPG will be like. Blues News have spotted two screenshots, however. They show an icy town (Winterfell?), and two very serious looking men. Grizzled old blokes: confirmed.
