Announcing Days of Ice and Fire 2012
Cross the Narrow Sea for a weekend of intrigue, combat, and great games
Off to starboard a hand large enough to crush the boat was reaching up from the murky depths. Only the tops of two fingers broke the river’s surface, but as the Shy Maid eased on past he could see the rest of the hand rippling below the water and a pale face looking up. –George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
The great Houses venture in new realms as they expand their intrigues to the lands of Essos.
