From the article:
The?A Song of Ice and Fire?series by George R.R. Martin?is one of the great fantasy stories of the past several decades. When it came time to translate it to the tabletop, CMON gave the task to two of their most accomplished designers: Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall. Lang and Shinall are no strangers to creating epic games steeped in theme. Between them,?they have?created?recent hits like?Blood Rage,?Rum and Bones,?Rising Sun, and?XenoShyft. However, even with all that experience under their belt,?A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game?(ASOIF:TMG) presented its own set of unique challenges.?With an existing fan base and an established mythos in the series, the designers had to flex their creative muscles?while staying true to the source material. Luckily, they were both appreciators of the books,?themselves.
