No it hasn't been yet sadly. I've been postponing writing the letter to George himself but that's the stage we're at.

I've un-stickied this topic. When you have solved the above issue I'll change it back again. ;)

this looks very promising, probably the best map in the foundry at the moment, i dont understand the Greyjoy bannermen though. i love the show so i feel the Wall is a big part of it, so yeah maybe think about adding in the wall and the snowy wilderness??

just a quick question here, so this is set before the show right? before Robert takes the throne?

In the books the Greyjoys and their bannermen (the Iron born) are basically vikings in nature. The Iron Islands are rocky and terrible for growing crops so they used to loot and pillage the surrounding shores for their plunder.

That's exactly correct.

I know the current discussion is about copyright and everything but I've got a couple of thoughts on gameplay...

In the books the emphasis is on the alliances/loyalties between the main seats of one house and another, rather than between the main seat of a house and it's own bannermen territories. I'd be cool if you could show this through gameplay somehow. One way I thought of doing it would be by "combining" the houses if you owned two or more main seats.

So, say you owned both winterfell and the eyrie, then you would get a +1 bonus for any 2 bannermen from either house. for example if you owned 3 bannermen from each (6 total) then you'd get a +3 bonus, rather than a +2 with your current system. Similar rules for if you owned 3 or 4 main seats.

It may be a little over complicated and not worth it, but i think something to a similar effect would be good.

Also, seeing as king's landing is the capital, maybe a bonus for if you own kings landing and a certain number of main seats? Say, +2 for every 2 main seats?

Maybe this is too many bonuses...

Anyway, good luck with the copyright issues. Great job so far :D

I think that would be very complicated to implement under the current XML, and not add much to the gameplay beyond a very subtle thematic point.

not sure if you have seen the amazing westeros map over at cartographersguild. I'll attach a photo of it here. And the link to the thread here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showt ... an-project
You should register at the guild just to read through the legal issues faced with that map. However, "tear" has created an amazing map, one of my favorites.

yeah, I figured. I do like subtle thematic points though, and I think this map really needs some.
