Game of Thrones: Fans will get a chance to name a character
George RR Martin has put a new deal on the table for all the diehard fans out there. He will name a character after a male and female fan and kill them in a future ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ novel as part of a fundraising campaign.
The 65-year-old infamous writer whose epic novels were adopted by HBO into the hit show Game Of Thrones, made the offer on Thursday as part of a fundraising drive for the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot in New Mexico. Alas, in true Game of Thrones tradition, all of this fame and glory will come at a hefty price of $20,000.
'You can choose your character's station in the world (lordling, knight, peasant, whore, lady, maester, septon, anything) and you will certainly meet a grisly death!,' the author promised on the Prizeo.com website.
George appeared in a YouTube video and said proceeds would benefit the wolf sanctuary in New Mexico that he and his wife Paris have supported for years as well as the Food Depot that serves as a food bank for nine counties.
