This Fan-Made Interactive GAME OF THRONES Map is Super Helpful, Awesome

No matter how big of a fan you are of HBO’s Game of Thrones — or the George R.R. Martin novel series A Song of Ice and Fire on which the series is based — there’s no denying that the expansive world of Westeros, Essos, and Sothoryos is a confusing one, mostly because it’s so damn expansive. There are literally hundreds of towns, ports, houses, and principalities mentioned in the series, creating a lush, rich world that’s exciting to dive into but also really hard to piece together. Some of us just need a wee visual aid. Enter QuarterMaester, a fan-made, interactive Game of Thrones world map that is sure to help you keep everything straight.

It’s an incredibly handy guide to the regions of The Known World, and has more than just a bunch of dots on a map. Beyond the locations of towns and holds throughout the Realm, the map also breaks things down like character locations throughout the series (both book and TV versions, and you get to choose), meaning you have control over how in-depth the information you receive gets. (Very convenient for you spoilerphobes out there.) It also links back to the Game of Thrones wiki, so fans can get information on the local nobility, history, wars, and notable mentions of the aforementioned features in both GoT media, which means newbies to Westeros and avid lovers alike will be able to enjoy superfan SerMountainGoat‘s (ooh, a knight!) seriously impressive work. And though it is dubbed as “speculative” because it has yet to receive the George R.R. Martin seal of approval — and, really, he’s the only true authority on the matter — it reads as fairly accurate, even compared to HBO’s own interactive take on the Realm.

OK, now: If you could live anywhere in Westeros or beyond, where would that be and why? We’re sorta partial to Braavos, but let us know your thoughts in the comments!

    There are a few assumptions as far as the characters’ and their circumstances are considered. Jon Snow for example. Other than that, this is pretty cool.

  2. Chuck E. says:

    What’s with the two north poles, if I may ask?

  3. Aaron C says:

    C’mon, Ashley….diff’t people learn diff’t ways.

    Why do we need maps in real life, then?

  4. Dee Hurtz says:

    smh @ you ashley. Have fun being a miserable bitch

  5. Maggie says:

    I would live in Braavos, or one of the other free cities. Love the Maps. As much as I love the series, which I started watching just this year (had to catch up quickly), I have inhaled the books. I can’t put them down! I love them even more.

    Watching the show at first, I had trouble keeping everyone’s names and lineages straight. Then I realized that Comcast ONDemand had a blurb for each episode, and I started learning who was who.

    THEN I started reading the books — SO much more information than the show, for those of you that haven’t read, it’s much more fun to get into the mind of the character rather than just see what happens — and learning the geography, history, and culture of the universe that J.R.R. Martin has created.

    In short, I’m LOVING this map!

    There is already a GRRM approved book version of Maps. It has all the folded pull out maps and everything. I got it for Christmas.

    …Or Whoever :)

  11. Joseph Frary says:

    Awesome! Thank you to whomever did this. Very fun and helpful.

  12. Jesse Jones says:

    Dorne sems to be the most progressive of the Seven Kingdoms, Can’t wait to learn more about them!

  13. Tiffany says:

    Water Gardens, obviously. You get to just lounge around in beautiful weather and watch kids play in water all day long. Rough life

  14. Burns says:

    This is a fantastic resource. One error, I noticed, however. Baelish Keep was placed in the Vale of Arryn, instead of the Fingers. Baelish Keep is located in the secondmost finger from the North.

  15. william says:

    but i still say rokugan is north of all of that 😛

  16. M says:

    Thank you Ashley for expressing your discontent with a person that took the time to make a handy tool for keeping track of all the many events in the book, what a jerk!

    I love whoever did this, helps piece things together far more clearly rather than looking at the limited map in the book and I applaud the effort! 😀

    Dorne sounds fun.

  19. Ashley N. says:

    If you pay attention when you read the books, it’s really not that difficult to keep all of the places straight. smh
