    Sounds very interesting, but it also sounds like it will take some time to make as it is quite a big project. :-)

    I don't wanne make it sound rude. But hearing your general Idea. It would probaply better for you rather stimulate the Conflicts between the free cities and the continents on Essos. I mean if your gona make all that most of the supposed players you mention are in Westeros so adding Essos wouldn't only make it difficult.

    Also I would like to mention that you can't use 2happy4's map to say your will be more in depth.
    Seeing as his map is a Song of Ice and fire based on the books and not the Show.
    And the current series is far beyon the book but it also cut a lot of things.

    Unless your also gona Add Aegon Targaeryan (or blackfyre) and a lot of book specific guys. Because if your gona base it on the series you'll leave out a lot more important chars.

    Yup an ambitious project.

    I like the idea of making Winter not a key player within the map, but on the same accord I would neither make then the Night's Watch a playable faction from the beginning and neither the Wildlings.
    If there's one thing I don't like in ASoIA from 2happy4 it's how it always comes down to the North falling against Winter and then South either mass allies up in order to kill Winter and call it a game or they break apart entirely and get killed by DG.

    Furthermore it might also be wise to make the Vale as well a Second Chance/path option for King's Landing' or the North. They don't do anything in the books/show until Sansa shows up there with Petyr Baelish and the entire Lord Protector arc begins. So either, when Joffrey dies, it could make sense for King's Landing to give his forces to Lannister, thus unlocking more event chains for Red, while he gets the Petyr, Vale and Sansa
    or Blue can go for the Vale the moment Robb Stark dies, thus disbanding his forces/transfering them over to someone else, while he gets Petyr, Sansa and the Vale.
    While in the same accord Stannis would recieve the Night's Watch events + support from northern lords.

    Same goes for Dorne: They would be more optimal as a lategame faction, as the entire Dornish plan focused on revenge upon the Lannisters and Young Gryff.
    (TV series Dorne sucks - never ever consider it being good, as it's horrible as hell!)

    So in the beginning it would be:

    -Lannisters
    -King's Landing

    -The North
    -The Riverlands

    -The Stormlands
    -The Reach

    - Dragonstone

    - The Iron islands

    while 4 potential spots would be free. If Essos is part of the game,
    I would definitly add these factions:
    - Daenerys host
    - Slaver's Bay/Ghiscari cities (Mereen, Yunkai, Astapor, New Ghis as one faction)
    - Dothraki

    Those are the most relevant factions in terms of War of the 5 Kings and War in Slaver's bay, starting from the point when Daenerys freed the Unsullied and took Astapor in the beginning.
    Whether the Dothraki deserve to be a faction on their own or not, as storywise only Khal Pono would matter regarding the war over Mereen, is up to the editor.

    While as for faction paths or rather second chances, I would propose the following factions:
    - The Nights Watch (if not already an initial faction)
    - The Vale (Lord Protector, see above)
    - Braavos (in order to support Stannis Baratheon, as he made a deal with the Iron Bank in order to let the Lannisters pay their debts)
    - Dorne
    - The Golden Company (Young Gryff - selfexplaining; should most likely become a path upgrade for Dorne)
    - North under Bolton (alternatively: Boltons as the initial ally of North and the Riverlands to fill the 12th player spot )
    - Freys of the Riverland (though would rather make this a path thing for Lannisters)

    There's probably more people would propose most likely, but I guess for now that's the main things I'd like to see, if the map really is also covering Essos.

    Indeed this project will be quite intensive. I'm going to try to assemble a team to help speed production.
    I get your point however I think it can still be done.
    Lol - its based on the books and the show ; Resurrected Jon Snow for example... only in the show (not yet in the book).
    Yeah, plot-wise - everything from the books will be used + extra stuff from the show for late plot (unless Winds of Winters comes out soon).
    I feel you - I will try to add as many characters as possible. Don't worry, it won't be like 2happy4u's leaving out dozens of major characters. Arya, Aegon, and more will be in this.
    Interesting ideas mate. Great points - I'm definitely going to reconsider the starting factions and how other factions come into play.

    Did anyone ever felt like all his wishes are comming true?Well thats how i feel right now.
    Okey so on the basis of what you are talking about it looks almost like Lords of the North by Gollum_Kome.I wanted to make a map similar to what you are suggesting right now but you have much bigger and better ideas so i guess you should work on it.I would love to help in anyway i can cause this project is just too cool and too similiar to what i had in mind.I already started making terrain for the north and i think i ve putten some pictures of it around the forums.If you want it i can give it to you for you to work on it.All in all if you need any help wait 2 days atleast and i will be able to help.Currently am away from home.

    Hey thanks a bunch man - I am trying to put a team together so I can use the help for sure.
    While I appreciate the offer, I can't accept your map. Actually map and terrain are one of my specialties - thus I already have a map I'm working on that has everything roughed out.
    If you can help with object editor, quests, or triggers - that would be very useful and help push this project forward.
