A Game of Thrones - Future Theme

I've had a fantasy itch I've been trying to scratch for a while now and, for a brief period, I toyed with the idea of starting up my own Game of Thrones game. I was going to set it around the year 196 AC or so. I thought that era came with a lot of good drama and diversity with Mariah Martell being Queen and all. You also have the Blackfyre Rebellion for conflict and drama. Things fell through, however, when the people I was working on it with left the game (we just couldn't quite get everything sorted the way we wanted to).
In another thread (the ..only less stinky thread) someone mentioned setting a GoT game in the future. That really stuck with me and I think it could be a really neat way to handle a game. I didn't want to hijack that thread so I opted to create a new one specifically geared towards discussing a future theme.
With the game you could generalize what happens at the end of the series/books then shoot it 500 years into the future (or however far). Decide who is in power, what houses are most prominent/dominant, then go from there. I would also probably borrow very heavily from the ideas mentioned above circa the 196 era. A Dornish Queen could help diversify the cast (not that this is a necessity since if you set it in Kings Landing there are all kinds of reasons for diversity) and some sort of ongoing conflict could be used to help drive RP (combat, political intrigue, etc. and so on).
For instance, it could be said that Jon Snow unites the wildlings and the north against a returned Daenarys which leads to an ongoing conflict. The north is now a mix of wildlings, giants, and humans. Maybe the Wall is still there but now the area beyond the wall is taken over by white walkers or something. The middle kingdoms forge a pact with Dorne to unite against the north. So now you have your conflict (North vs. South), a fragile alliance, and room for a lot of intrigue and what have you.
Now that's just one idea and likely not a very good one at that. Anyway, if there's interest we can discuss it here or I can throw up access to a MUX DB if we wanted some place to gather and what not.
Cool, count me in as a conductor on the Kings Landing to Winterfell train line. Would be a lot of RP opportunities at the different stations, etc.
