Who's Who in Westeros

I finished reading George R.R. Martin's book A Game of Thrones a few months ago.  I'm not sure when I'll get around to reading the subsequent novels, because of their length and lack of closure.  However, since I admire the author's world-building skill, I'll take a divergent course and delve into the various Westeros-based games as I can.

One such game is the Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying (RPG) system by Green Ronin Publishing.  Since I'm involved in two Star Wars RPG campaigns, I wasn't in the mood to learn a new gaming system. However, I've read great reviews about it.  One such review comes from Geek's Dream Girl, that I found via Dice Monkey.

What I did read, cover-to-cover, was the Song of Ice and Fire Campaign Guide.  There are four 5-star reviews for this book on, including mine.  I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Martin's Song of Ice and Fire saga.   Gamers and non-gamers would benenfit having this book as a "Who's Who in Westeros" reference guide.
