    I might still tweak the exact location if I'm able to dig up additional information.
    Check this site... Westeros.org

    One of the best sites I've found for ASoIaF, I believe one of the admins (Werthead IIRC), posts here on occaision.

    Thanks, General.

    Seems like I have some research to do.

    I already discovered that "Sun House" on the southern end of the Reach is actually the name of the village around the keep. The keep itself is called "Sunflower Hall". A blatant mistake on my part that will be corrected in the next version.

    I've never heard of the "answer story" genre before.

    Howebeit, the point (of awesomeness) remains.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    Pimping my worldmap here. Still WIP... long way to go, but I'm pretty proud of what I've done so far...

    Curses! Foiled by the browser's spell checker. And not proofreading.

    Praise

    That's a tremendously beautiful map. I'm one of the founders of Westeros.org (and have done most of the work in regards to things like the Concordance) and I do think you'll find it useful for some of the details. We're currently contracted to co-author The World of A Song of Ice and Fire with George, and could certainly point the map out to him if you haven't done so yourself (though he's soon off to Worldcon).

    I made my own stab at a map of Westeros (purely in a graphics program, Campaign Cartographer is beyond me), which is think the most complete that currently exists, incorporating all information from all the maps. It's a poor, sorry thing next to your own, but it might have some additional details you'd like to incorporate.

    It can be found here (you can click on the image to expand it to full size). I believe I have the same issue in regards to Sun House/Sunflower Hall, something I need to see about, but otherwise I think it's fairly accurate.

    We host a number of fan-created maps of Westeros there, and I think we'd be very pleased if we could host your own map (or provide a thumbnail and link through to your own site) should you be interested when you've finalized it. If you'd like to discuss it, you can contact me at webmaster@westeros.org

    Oh, one detail that immediately springs to mind is the location of Starfall. GRRM's stated that it's in fact an island. I think I'd nudge your symbol for it just a smidge to the left, as there's a bit too much land showing between it and the river currently. And now that I think of it -- and this is just a suggestion -- but I think introducing more red into the Dornish mountains would be a good idea. The "red mountains of Dorne" are one of the first geographic details we have of that region. And for that matter, representing the more arid, desert climate of Dorne (much as you've shown the colder, more icy climate of the far North) could help provide some additional color and contrast while at the same time better representing the geography.

    Really impressive work, Tear. Quite amazing!

    You can't do that with Campaign Cartographer - no knock against that program, but the level of beauty portrayed here is just a level above and beyond what can be done with that, from everything I've seen. Work like this requires two things that Tear obviously has: (1) Skill & Talent and (2) a graphic/photo editor a bit more powerful than CC (in Tear's case, apparently, Photoshop).
