So, 2013 edition is done. Any news regarding BoW? Or any Martin's related games? Has anyone attended, and has some interesting news to share?

The only things I hear are (completely unsubstantiated / hearsay) that:
1. FFG will abandon BoW like BL
2. The contract with George RR Martin will expire, and the next editions will be cancelled because the George RR Martin camp will demand exorbitant
royalties
3. Greyjoy and Targaryen expansions are coming

...again, all complete rumor, but that's what I hear.

So, it seems like they are finishing the major Houses before their license drop off, and then nothing more.

I really *hope* this are only rumors. Can't believe they abandon all Martin's lines, considering how many products they have, the convention just organized, the TV series going on (that theoretically will result in more people playing their games), how huge the LCG is now and so on.

Is there a place on the Geek to ask questions about conventions? Maybe we can have some "fresh" news over there.

Thanks for answering, Scott :-)

Who did you hear the rumors from? Was any source reliable?

Anyway, I looked at Martin's website (here: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/category/news/licensor-news/ ) and there is nothing about withdrawing any license to FFG. So, let's hope it's only a rumor :-)

They had no news on BoW at Days of Ice and Fire last year but then announced the next expansion very shortly afterwards, hopefully they do the same gain this time around.

FFG just poted a short report on the Ice & Fire weekend: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=4089
They talk about next year's edition, so I guess everything's ok...
