Six seasons in and Iâ€™m still not great with the names of characters and places in theGame of Thrones universe. That makes me a horrible companion to binge-watch the show with: Iâ€™m constantly badgering my mates with questions like, â€œWhoâ€™s Arya mad at again?â€ and, â€œIs Dorne anywhere near where the Dothraki live?â€
Thanks to Quartermaester, a new interactive map, I can brush up on various locations named in the series, learn which kingdoms belong to which houses and hopefully become less annoying to stream the show with.
The map is incredibly detailed and includes both confirmed and speculative locations of cities, towns and castles from George RR Martinâ€™s magical world. You can also click on icons depicting each of these to learn more over at the Game of Thrones wiki.
Plus, you can follow the routes taken by key characters through the six seasons of the show or the various chapters of the book series. And depending on how far along youâ€™ve got in either of them, you can filter out spoilers by adjusting the slider in the menu.
If youâ€™re still clueless about various aspects of the show, this is a handy guide for figuring things out while you rewatch the entire series before the next season arrives.
