The good news is that the new World of Ice and Fire book will shore up a lot of blank spots in the lore. The bad news is that reworking the mod to be lore-accurate will take awhile...

First off, definetly check out the new World of Ice and Fire book, it's really good! The bad news is that, by confirming a lot of lore-related issues (the origins of House Arryn, the timing of the Andal Invasion, etc) it will be a huge pain to get it all sorted out for 2.0. While I do expect the finished product will be stronger for it, there will be plenty of backtracking. So be warned, it could take awhile and winter is coming...


Winter is coming... But who fear winter :)

You already made an awesome job and if you can refine it with a new accuracy it would be even greater !

If necessary don't be afraid to treat your work as an adaption like the TV show does. There's no point throwing away work you're happy with if its only failing is a Lore conflict. A fudged justification for something is way better than wasted work and delays for release.

True, but I will say that the WoIaF lore is actually really cool (much better than mine), so I figured I'd adapt it in and use my stuff to fill in any leftover blanks.
