Elder Scrolls Meets Westeros: A Game of Thrones RPG

Bethesda RPG fans longing to see an epic fantasy world like A Song of Ice and Fire (popularized through TV adaptation, Game of Thrones) come together haven’t found their dream collaboration realised just yet – although Bethesda was once approached about creating such a title; their potential offerings make this dream excitingly tangible!

Bethesda Game of Thrones Game Seemed Idea

Skyrim draws its strength from a shared worldbuilding that both franchises share, including dark fantasy themes, political intrigue and dragons that seem similar to George R.R. Martin’s work; yet closer inspection reveals potential differences in styles that might hinder comparisons.

Game of Thrones draws heavily upon low fantasy tropes; magic in Game is subtle and mysterious without flashy wizards or orc hordes to distract us. Conversely, The Elder Scrolls favors high fantasy with players wielding powerful magic spells against fantastical beasts in battleground.

This fundamental difference goes far beyond aesthetics: Elder Scrolls prioritizes open world exploration and emergent gameplay over tightly scripted narrative, making for an unfussy experience while Game of Thrones relies on multiple complex characters and political maneuverings for narrative drive.

What a Bethesda Game of Thrones RPG Could Have Been

Despite the hurdles, a successful adaptation could exist. Here’s a possible direction:

  • Westeros: Craft Your Own Original Tale: Differing from the established narrative gives players more creative freedom; they could explore unique paths within this carefully constructed world.
  • An Earthier Magic System: Magic would be far less predictable and prevalent, unlike its depiction in The Elder Scrolls.
  • Bethesda stands out in its open world adventures by emphasizing exploration and player agency. Imagine uncovering Westeros’ secrets while building alliances and shaping its fateful inhabitants’ destinies through Bethesda!

A Song of Ice and Fire’s Influence

While Bethesda Game of Thrones games remain fantasy in nature, their influence might still be felt; perhaps A Song of Ice and Fire could inspire more realistic political entries for The Elder Scrolls series in future installments?
