Making the world of Game of Thrones safer with subway trains

We at Pixelonomics are great fans of the fantasy world of Game of Thrones. That is why, we couldn’t resist crating an infographic about Game of Thrones starring Indian Stars. It is the same reason we couldn’t resist sharing this with you all.

The world of Game of Thrones might probably be the most dangerous fantasy world ever conceived. If not killed by the barbaric Mountain Clans of the Vale you will definitely be mercilessly killed by Gregor Clegaine, the Brave Companions or by the Faceless Men of Braavos. The dangers of travelling by road in Westeros are limitless.

Perhaps that is why Michael Tyznik put together a fictional subway map of Westeros, that will make traversing the fictional kingdom of Game of Thrones a lot safer! Imagine being able to travel from the Shadow Tower to King’s Landing with just one transfer station!

Tayznik drew inspiration from Cameron Booth’s Tumblr of transit maps to create these maps for the The Game of Thrones and has also added small touches like noting certain station/routes not in service to coincide with plot points in the book. Fans will really appreciate the level of accuracy in these maps. The Twins is being divided into “East” and “West” stations with a walking route between them, the emphasis being laid on the King’s Road, the closed stations along the Wall Line and the discontinued service to Valyria are just a few examples. If you are a fan of the world of Game of Thrones you are going to have a fun time hunting for such stuff and be lost in the little details.

The prints of both this map and another one that shows the entire known world of the series are priced at $40 .The maps can be viewed in high resolution on Flickr or bought in print form from inPRNT.
