But does anybody know in which way the informations - mainly those about the Others - are "canonical", I mean if it is possible that we will read in future books from the creator of Westeros himself facts that differ a lot?
Night's Watch wrote:The Books and This Appendix
To be very clear, this appendix goes well into the terrain of non-canon. That is, the majority of the things described in this section are not taken from the Song of Ice and Fire series, being created for Narrators of the SIFRP game to introduce additional elements of the Others into their game. Though the series does talk about the legends written about the Others in the old and musty libraries of the maesters, and in the stories that goodwives like Old Nan tell their young charges about them, it doesn’t go much into them.
That is too good of a hook for a Narrator not to use, though, so we’ve gone a little into the realm of conjecture to present some speculative story hooks and the “truths” behind them, to give a Narrator a place to start who wishes to extend his or her group’s stories to include these horrors.
The material in this chapter is based primarily on the descriptions and legends of the Others provided in the books. This book expands upon that material in the ways that seem most plausible to offer a range of options for use in a campaign that focuses on the Wall and the struggle against the Others for the lands that lie beyond. George R. R. Martin is still writing, however, so the books yet to come may contradict what has been written here. If that should happen, we remind you again to make fun your primary goal. Use what you like, drop what you don’t, and don’t worry too much if you end up diverging from the canon. Remember, by engaging with Martin’s stories in the form of SIFRP, canon has already changed for your chronicle. Embrace that and run with what makes your stories fun and interesting for your group.
The Others won’t mind at all.
