Westeros Basemap by Todyo1798 Westeros Basemap by Todyo1798
I lost count of how mahy days I spent on this one, all I know is I had three out the seven kingdoms done this morning. Oi.

Anyway, I would like to introduce you all to the basemap I will be using for my Game of Thrones alternate histories, where I look at the world of A Song of Ice And Fire had things gone differently. I will do them in chronological order, so starting with A Game of Thrones, into A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords and so on and so forth.

I'll start on my first one tomorrow, untill then discuss and shit like that. You can also make requests for shit you'd like to see, ya-da ya-da ya-da.

I did not make the base map btw, here's the original.

I'v allways wondered how things would turn out if Drogo lived but Danny still managed to hatch her dragons with Ned Stark been allowed to take the black along with Theon staying loyal to the Starks thrown into the mix.

How convinient that would have been for all the fans : D I know what you mean though. I think Drogo could certainly have died in a more interesting way, honestly. Drogo alive with the dragons would be interesting though

From an angle, an armed with a bayonet.

Essentially Munroist maps. My first POD is going do be during a Game of Thrones, I'm not sure wether to have it as Bran not falling, or Robert and Drogo not dying.

It's up to you, I guess. Though I'd also suggest a future map showing the possible implications of an industrial revolution in Westeros.

Ever heard of the RPG Arcanum?

I wouldn't really know how to go about that, to big a gap. Besides which I'd have to guess at how the canon material is going to turn out.

I know of it, technology versus magic, yes?

I've only watched a few episodes of the TV series so I don't have any idea wtf is going on, but I like the shape of the continent and I was wondering if this is part of a larger global map, or if this is a single Pangaea-ish place.

Meh, the books are better.

And yes there are two known continents beyond Westeros, one called Essos (basically Mediterranean through to Asia in culture) and another one we never really see which is basically Africa.

Cool. I'm looking for someone to build a continent for me for one of my redone althist projects. I shall pester you about /that/ later.

I tried to come up with a continent for a friend once, he was trying to write pseudo-medieval world based off current political events.

Like "Europe" was basically a collection of city-states, with Russia being a steppe empire and America being a federation of former colonies.

Well I wrote a timeline where there was another continent to the west of South America with some very interesting folks living there. Imagine a ridiculously larger Indonesia, but with very exotic differences.

Basically Mu/Lemuria then?

It'd be cool, so longas some Megafauna survive. I want to see people domesticating giant birds!

The continent on which A Song of Ice and Fire/A Game of Thrones is mostly set. Parallels with medieval Europe.

Having parallels is a bit lazy is it not? But also cool? :p

It's either that or come up with your own culture by yourself, who wants to do that?
