Anyone have an extra $20K laying around?
The horrifying deaths on Game of Thrones
have provoked a lot of feelings in fans of the medieval fantasy series: anger, sadness, grief… jealousy?
If you’ve ever stared at the severed heads and mutilated bodies of the Westerosi dead and thought “hey, I wish that were me,” then you’re in luck! In order to raise funds for two charities, The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot of Santa Fe, Song of Ice and Fire
series author George R. R. Martin has come up with a rather creative crowdfunding prize
: Two lucky Game of Thrones
fans with $20,000 will actually get a character in a future Game of Thrones
novel named after them—a character that will, naturally, die a horrible death. As the description for the “Martyr” pledge level explains:
There is one male character and one female character available. 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!
