      Thanks for the information, Olaf.

      GRRM is also a gamer (heh, heh!) I also saw the Game book for the d20 RPG
      system, though didn't dare pick it up; I'm afraid it would stick to my
      hands, and I'd leave the store with it, after it made a considerable hole in
      my budget. Hard enough putting down the book on the artwork. (PB of # 4
      coming out; alas, I really preferred the covers on the earlier editions.
      Much richer.) ---djb
