Dragon Age: The TV Series… Well, Kinda…


Dark age treachery, romance, war and intrigue abound in Game of Thrones.

Here’s a long and lusty look at the making of the upcoming HBO series, A Game of Thrones, based on the series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin. As far as I know, this lustful and bloody epic is one of the great influences on the recent wave of RPGs of the ‘dark fantasy’ flavor, including Dragon Age. It may not have winged balrogs or hordes of orcs, but GOT makes up for it with in loads of interesting and engaging characters engaged in brutal power struggles all across the strife-ridden lands of Westeros and beyond. Magic may be very subtle and incidental in GOT, but this is something any fantasy fan will love. I can’t wait to see how HBO gives this the live-action treatment. The series arrives next year, in April or so. Wow, between this and the upcoming Legend of Korra, I think the fantasy geek in me is gonna be very, very pleased.
