The story behind WesterosCraft
Our goal is to recreate the universe imagined by author George R. R. Martin in his fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire
Started in September 2011, currently, WesterosCraft is still 'under construction'. We are aiming to complete the entire continent of Westeros before possibly moving on to Essos. We have dreams of turning WesterosCraft into an open world MMORPG, which will become more possible the closer we come to completing Westeros.
There’s a map of it in each book, but the scale is just mind-boggling. It’s 650 miles just from Castle Black to Winterfell, let alone all the way to King’s Landing (2110 miles). And they don’t even have cars!

It's hard to watch videos from Westeroscraft—the stunningly ambitious project to re-create the entire world of Game of Thrones in Minecraft—and not be impressed.
That’s the spirit that seems to infuse WesterosCraft and its community: both a painstaking faithfulness to its source material and a desire to innovate collaboratively in the spaces where canon offers no answers.
Block by block, enterprising Minecraft players are rebuilding the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, from George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones and the HBO series of the same name. It's no small task, and the images are even more impressive than this ambitious project sounds.
