I'm bumping this so that it's easier to find upon restoration. BTW, the letter has been sent and we are currently waiting upon a reply.

Keep your fingers crossed!

Sadly no... apparently George Martin is notoriously bad about responding to emails.

If all else fails, go the LOTR route and change eliments of the map but keep the layout.

I hope I'm wrong, but I'm starting to think you won't be able to continue this one....(who knows when and IF he will give an answer to you)

Yep, with the TV show and books doing well, getting the copy right agreement to do this now would be next to impossible. Should be an easy fix over what you have now though.

Wow, that sucks to hear about the copyright issue. This would make a great map.

I had actually never heard of the series before seeing this. Then I saw Season 1 on HBO On Demand, watched that...awesome show! I'm pretty psyched Season 2 comes out April 1st. I'll definitely have to read the books sometime.

I hope you can continue this map, I'd love to play it.

Yeah, lets face it ... time to move on and bring the vibe. Frankly I'm surprised his media company doesn't see the potential in free advertising by allowing this to happen! I'd write to them myself but its not my map. I'd write:

Dear Sir

I understand that you are in charge of marketing the Westeros franchise for George Martin. I am not alone when I say that his work has been nothing short of inspirational. So as to give back something of a tribute, we have created a Westeros map which will form the part of an online web service. The discussion thread is public and you are welcome to go to viewtopic.php?f=242&t=147699 to read it for yourself and view the map. We are sure that it probably palls in comparison to what Mr Martin would himself conceive, but that is the nature of tributes. Indeed, there is a huge following here and we are eager to make this a part of our daily lives. As a bit of free marketing for your franchise it will no doubt come as a welcome feather in your cap. We respect Mr Martin enough not to just create an "idea" map that evokes Westeros, even though that is clearly an option, as we would rather have Mr Martin's endorsement. Accordingly, and out of respect to copyright, we ask that you please give your blessing to this project so we can move forward with it.

Your fan

...


Or words to that effect.

So are you going to seek permission, tbk?

Or are you going to make an "Easteros" map or whatever?

Or do nothing?

Just wondering...I would enjoy playing on this.

Permission would never of been given on this one for a couple of reasons but the main one is that it now makes a lot of money for a lot of different companies. If this had been started when it was just a book and only the author needed to give permission, then there would of been a good chance. Now that it is a cash cow for the author, studios and all of the others related to it, it will never be given. If Bison wants to continue with this one, I feel it will have to be as Easteros. ;)
