Let’s Recast GAME OF THRONES as Humblewood’s Bird Creatures

Game Masters Hall is our series to where different storytellers share their experiences and discuss various topics revolving around the art of being a Game Master.

Imagine your gaming group around the table, sat before you is a plethora of Humblewood material and its character creation day—time to define everything you know as an animal! Humblewood has rocked Kickstarter recently and we’ve written before about how a GM should unveil the campaign, but some game sessions are strictly about throwing around crazy ideas.

In the setting, players play 5E classes mixed with various Bird-folk and Humble-folk races that are all derived from woodland creatures. It would be typical to see the Fox players play roguish or dexterity based fighters, but wouldn’t it be a blast to see a Pigeon Barbarian fueled by the might of his ancestors? In this totally open for discussion article, we take Game of Thrones characters and cast them as Humblewood races with D&D classes. Here’s our take:

Spoiler: Everyone Dies

  • Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish the astute Corvum Bard who safeguards the knowledge and secrets of Humblewood. Even if he uses that knowledge to look out for himself first.
  • Eddard “Ned” Stark the Gallus Fighter who had faith in the power of community.
  • Samwell Tarly would join the ranks of the pigeon-like Lumas of the Wizard class. Bringing his gifts of knowledge and secrets of the White Walkers to the world.
  • Arya Stark would become the agile hawk-like Raptors (Because there are no cats) and join the Rogue class. Agile creatures that blaze new trails through the forest.
  • Brienne of Tarth has proven herself to be a noble Strig Paladin that will always defend what they believe is right.

  • Jorah Mormont would become the hearty deer-like Cerva Ranger who always strives to achieve their goals while wandering the world.
  • Varys would become one of the Hedges and a Monk with high Wisdom. His empathy lets him see what others can not and he would have plenty of little birds to get secrets from.
  • Jon Snow may be a wolf in the series, but he’s a perfect cast for a brave little mouse-like Jerbeen who inspires those around him with deeds of heroism.
  • Tyrion Lannister would become the resourceful raccoon-like Mapach who can craft a solution to any problem. Clearly, he would be a Bard for a million reasons.
  • Jamie Lannister would be a Vulpin Fighter. Foxy, smarmy, and clearly up to something.
