Ok, I am almost done making a WC3 bnet map based on the ASOIAF world. So if you don't have WC3, then don't read the rest.

In case you are wondering why I am posting this here, it's because everywhere else people go; "A Song Of Ice And Fire? What the heck is that?"

==============
Features:

1. Terrain looks like the maps you find in the book (Iron Islands, Riverlands, Dorne, Dragonstone) So expect to look at the book map and the minimap and see an amazing reflection, every piece of terrain is from that map.

2. Reconisable structures, such as the Wall.

3. 11! Players include:

House Lannister
House Stark
House Tully
House Arryn
House Baratheon
House Targaryen
House Tyrell
House Greyjoy
House Martell
The Sworn Brothers Of The Night's Watch
The Wildlings
And....The Brotherhood Without Banners (5 outlaw heros, brigand)

All of these are straight from the book.

4. The map itself takes place before Robert's Rebellion.

5. Beutiful landscape, thousands of NPC doodads, such as farmlands, haystacks, forests, buildings. Trees are rivers populate this map, making unit placement a big deal.

6. Unlike Ring Wars, the actual cities, FEEL like a city, i.e. buildings everywhere, roads, lamposts, random doodads like benches.

7. Over 16 Custom Heros, over 30 custom units, over 50 custom buildings!

8. Each Player (expect Brotherhood) has player-specific unit. These are expensive, but will dominate the battlefield. Such units include; The evil Others, the Thorn Archers, The River Sharks, The Ironbourne, The Ranger, etc.

9. Each player has 3 cities, each one from the book. You'll be able to Storm King's Landing, Crush Castle Black, besiege Lannisport, Mass an army in Oldtown, and many more.

10. Triggers done to maximize gameplay, such as opening gates, units spawning in bases, kill's charts, gold timers, etc.

11. Familiar Landmarks such as God's Eye, Dornish mountains, Haunted forest, Barrowlands, The Neck, The Vale Of Arryn, and more!

12. Clash against enemies on land, AND sea! Ships can be built by every player and add a whole new strategy.

13. Characters from the book! Lord Eddard Stark, Lord Tywin Lannister, Lord Balon Greyjoy, King Aerys Targaryen, Mance Rayder, Lem Lemoncloak, and much, much more!

14. HUGE map, with oceans, lakes, and of course, Westoros!

15. It's FUN!

===================

Ok, its about 80% done, but I would like some help. So if there is anyone out there who knows how to work the world editor, and wants to help, please PM or email me

I don't know ANYTHING about that kind of stuff, and have never even really played Warcraft...BUT...

Way to go man, that sounds AMAZING! I can't believe you've made a real map, I want to see it when it's done, even if I can't play...

If it's good enough, maybe you can even sell it to Martin's people?!?

Good for you FM, sounds cool. Drop me a line, haven't done much WC3 editing, but I can do it. One thing though, ship? LOL, there aren't any ships in WC3.

I know some WC3 editing, but as you are probably well aware, I am quite horrible with it... though I won't have much problem testing out the map ;)

There are ships in the expansion. They don't fire though, only transport troops.

I thought that Warcraft 2 was an amazing game, though I hated all the levels where you could build ships, so I wasn't too happy to see the boats return in TFT, though they aren't common, and can't attack, so I wasn't so upset, but would have preffered their absence, though if you are going to include the rest of the world, I can see that they are needed, and here is a map for the rest of the (known) world

It works fine with me, but try this link (http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/Miscellany/Maps00.html) and click on "The World" map

Ok, so if you want to help out, PM me or email or something.

There are boats, transport ships, frigates and battleships. I had to include them because I wanted the Greyjoys to be playable.

So far the total map is about 70% done, some things need major fixes, such as triggers, bugs and terrain.

Ok here are some screenshots from the game. Keep in mind, many things will change before release, but I'm open to suggestions.

If you read my first post, you will know that the brotherhood without banners if playable, well, here they are.

Here is the western side of the wall, I had no idea what the Shadow tower looked like, so I just made a tower.
