In Joseidon's defense this was the area where the Harclay warp was located.Anyway, I've had a look at your map and you seem to misinterpret where Harclay is.
Harclay is on the eastern side of the range and Bran indicates that they have passed through or at least within sight of Harclay land. They also are a clan of the hills, rather than the mountains
“There’s people,” Bran told her. “The Umbers are mostly east of the kingsroad, but they graze their sheep in the high meadows in summer.
There are Wulls west of the mountains along the Bay of Ice, Harclays back behind us in the hills, and Knotts and Liddles and Norreys and even
some Flints up here in the high places.” -Bran II SoS
To the Umbers and the Boltons, to Castle Cerwyn
and Torrhen’s Square, Karhold and Deepwood Motte, to Bear Island, Oldcastle, Widow’s Watch, White Harbor, Barrowton, and the Rills, to the
mountain fastnesses of the Liddles, the Burleys, the Norreys, the Harclays, and the Wulls, the black birds brought their plea. -Jon VII SoS
I agree this placement would make more sense (even though you are wrong about Liddle being closer to Winterfell as it currently stands) for the principle reason that Bran & Co are roughly following the Kingsroad north to the Wall and say that they have passed through hills where Meera has been hunting, and then comment on the Harclay's being in hills behind them, and, putting two and two together, makes the Mollen area more suitable as its eastern border is defined by the Kingsroad.They also are a clan of the hills, rather than the mountains, so it would make more sense for them to be where Mollen is, south of Liddle, and in east-running foothills that stretch towards the long lake.
From my point of view that is rather the opposite, but that might be related to the age of the projects. If I would try to make the houses in this region more civilzed, they would probably end up as you regular stone house with a sod roof. I am not sure if that represents the mountain clans in any way.currently housing gets more advanced the further south you go, being most primitive closest to the wall
Yes I think we need a clearer picture for this area. I second the idea that this app continue as a relocated burley, which should change this app in no way other than name. It would be great if those builders involved came up with an agreed plan for how the clans are arranged, and I can redraw the borders to match.Looks cool Aeks. That could work. But what about the lands south of Harclay and north of Winterfell, there seems to missing something. But we can talk about that somewhere else.
Also about Winterfells very small lands, we have to remember that dutch made these borders based on our construction/progess of the lands. Not based on canon and logic. That way the map borders could show us which lands needs to be done, and in which projects. So if a project has oddly small lands (like most northern projects) thats just a shame, not much we can unless someone would do an extension of a pretty old project.
I think we can take from this that Joseidon can continue his application as Clan Burley. We can discuss the borders of the clans in a map thread or something, and maybe Dutchgard could be convinced to redraw the borders, once we have a clear plan.
