WESTEROS FOOTBALL LEAGUE What's up everyone. For my first post I am proud to present a project I have been working on for quite a bit. If you're a fan of Game of Thrones and the NFL, then this may be for you. The project takes the question, "What if Westeros had its own professional football league?", and brings it to life. For those that are unfamiliar, Westeros is the main continent of the World of Ice and Fire, and the setting of the very popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. Based off the best-selling book series by George RR Martin, Game of Thrones just wrapped up its seventh season. With the NFL season starting, I thought it would be a great time to present this series. Without further ado, here it is. THE TEAMS Each team is based off one of the major houses in Westeros. The teams' uniforms and branding draw from different aspects of each house such as the house sigil, the house words, characters attire, and more. You may also notice some teams draw inspiration from NFL teams as well. I have decided to begin with twelve teams to keep things simple, however, there is definitely the possibility of expanding beyond that in the future.

I'm a fan of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" saga - or Game of Thrones to the HBO crowd. Like any sufficiently large fantasy world (Tolkien, Narnia, Wheel of Time) there's quite a large community of folks producing artwork based on their favorite characters and events. There have even been a few attempts at designing House Sigils and even putting them on football helmets, but I hadn't really seen a full blown "Westeros League" concept done before. That being said, here is my angle on Game of Thrones, reinterpreted as a modern NCAA Football conference. A few notes before I dive into the series: First - NO SPOILERS, or at least use the spoiler tag. The Chris Creamer folks are good about this and really, the thread is to talk about design and uniforms, not the show and catching up. We don't want to spoil the fun for anyone. Please, if there's reason to talk about someone's untimely death or a major plot point, use the SPOILER tag. Second - I'll be doing a Home, Away and Alternate or Throwback for each House. Finally - there are legions of major and minor Houses throughout the books and show. For simplicity sake, I'll be confining myself to the following 9 Major Houses. I might add some fan favorites if the series is well received (Clegane, for example). Stark, Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen, Tyrell, Tully, Greyjoy, Arryn and Martell So without further ado, let's get to the concepts!
