For $350, you'll receive a signed map of Westeros, the fictional world where Game of Thrones takes place. Donating $1,200 will get you a handwritten thank you note. (Although who knows how long that will take?) And for $20,000, Martin will name a character after you in one of the remaining unpublished books.
"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 prize description reads.
Martin said that one male and one female character will be available for the, uh, unique honour. So if you're a Thrones fan who always looked up to Ned Stark, this may be your chance to fictionally follow in his footsteps. Below is a clip of some of the many ways your character could die! (Warning: The scenes are violent. Of course.)
