The Lands of Ice and Fire artist Jonathan Roberts recently discovered that if you take away the actual lands of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire world, then the journeys of its characters appear in much the same manner as a subway map.
Towards that end, Roberts tweaked his own “Character Journeys” map in the style of the London Tube to better visualize the phenomenon. The names and places have been excised, as the map is current up to the end of A Dance With Dragons and would contain spoilers for TV-only folks. King’s Landing and Harrenhal are obvious hubs, but so is the Inn at the Crossroads, surprisingly! Other important nations/neighborhoods seem to be bypassed completely, but isn’t that always the way?
