A Convention of Ice & Fire!

So for those who don't know me, I'm pretty much the best secret-keeper ever. Okay, maybe not the best, but I'm really darn good at keeping my mouth shut when I need to, okay? ;)

That said, for the past couple of weeks some friends and I have been working on something really, really exciting. And being so excited about this, it's been really, really hard to keep my mouth shut as we've gone back and forth and forth and back making the arrangements for...

Yes, that's right - we've booked Ravenwood Castle in Ohio for an entire weekend of Song of Ice & Fire-themed activities and discussions.

We are planning photoshoots, a mock Westerosi election, several panels/discussions, a mini tournament, a gaming night and even a costume contest :) All completely ASOIAF-related, of course.

UNTIL NOVEMBER 1st, 2012, tickets are priced at:

$75 for Dragon/VIP (convention admission with 2 dinners and a large gift bag included)
$60 for Stag (convention admission with 1 dinner and a small gift bag included)
$45 for Copper Star (convention admission only)

You *must* book a room or cottage at Ravenwood Castle in order to attend the convention. Rooms/cottages will be made available for general booking on October 15, 2012. 

Ravenwood Castle offers several accommodation options - both rooms in the castle and cottages on site - priced anywhere from $130 to $235/night.

Here are some links to check out in case you're interested in attending this event, which is sure to be an awesome time for all Game of Thrones/Song of Ice & Fire fans :)

(as a warning, it does appear that at the moment you have to join the FB group in order to join the FB event)

  1. This sounds awesome. I will definitely try to get to this!

    1. Awesome! Would love to have you, of course :)

  2. "a mock westerosi election"

    You really don't understand how things work in Westeros, do you?

    1. Oh no, that's the point :) if you haven't seen the Game of Thrones tumblr, lately they've been posting political election posters made by fans...that's the route we're going, as in it's a joke ;) just something fun/funny as an extra activity, to maybe foster some amusing creativity.

    2. Debate between the five kings. I demand it.
