    Why the Hakkas doesn't have a province of their own?

    Planning and Discussion Thread: Welsh Television Vignette

    It started with a very short scenario that I've originally written almost a year ago, and I'm currently planning to expand it into a vignette (short alternate history scenario). As indicated in the scenario, the PoD was 1968, when the GPO cooperated with both the BBC and ITA (Independent...

    Possible capital of a Hashemite-ruled Arabia

    As the question (and the poll) said, what particular city could be the capital of a Hashemite Kingdom of Arabia, given the PoD (e.g. India Office was favored by the British government and the Hashemites have a better relationship with the merchant elite of Hejaz). Could it impact the economic...

    What ethnic group would lead/dominate in a Volga Finnic "Rus"/"Russia"

    (aka my very first thread under the New Board) Here's the map of Eastern Europe in the 9th century. As you can see, the north-central part of European Russia was inhabited by Finno-Ugric tribes, most specifically in the Volga River basin, hence the obvious term. Except for Mari, Permians...

    What would happen to the Indo-Aryan tribes in a surviving Harappa/Indus civilization?

    Recently, I've read Flocc's surviving Indus Civilization scenario, which was written almost a decade ago (the thread lasted for three years from 2006 to 2009, by the way), based on his comment on an earlier thread. From the maps that he posted in his mini-scenario, the Indo-Aryan tribes were...

    AHC: More significant presence of Occitan in Spain

    Currently, the presence of Occitan (Pyrenean Gascon, in particular) in Spain is in the comarca of Aran Valley in Catalonia.

    WI: The Tokugawas chose Hyogo-Kobe in Kansai instead of Edo in Kanto?

    The role of Tokyo as capital of Japan actually started when Tokugawas set up their "general headquarters" in the then-little known village of Edo in the year 1603. Until that time, Edo and the surrounding region of Kanto was generally avoided because its flat terrain (a plain) was generally...

    A simple question related to Plymouth Pilgrims

    If the Plymouth Pilgrims managed to reach the Hudson River Delta area in present-day New York and settled there, Manhattan Island in particular, is there a possibility that the concept of a "New Netherland" would be materialized?

    Plausibility Check: Kurds settled the rest of Anatolia

    Recently, I'm thinking of an idea where the Kurds substituted Turks in (most of) the Anatolian peninsula, as in beyond their homeland (OTL southeastern Turkey and the Zagros Mountains). While I really thought that such idea was almost/borderline implausible, I want to reassure if this...
