These worldbook "sidebars" are all threatening to turn into novellas.

Sure hope you guys and gals like fake history.

I know you've resisted it thus far because you don't want to be held down by the answer but is there any chance we will get a map of Westeros (if not Essos) with a scale? Or will the world book reveal that the reason the maps in the book don't include one is that map makers in Westeros haven't figured out how to draw scale maps?

I tried to avoid giving a scale so that obsessive fans with rulers would not be hectoring me all the time about long it took character x to get from A to B. (It takes as long as I said it takes, damn it).

But then I made the mistake of mentioning the Wall was a hundred leagues long, and someone looked up "league" in their dictionary.

Not sure the map book will have scales either. Why make it easy for 'em? It sure isn't easy for me...
