  1. Post WWI - No Throne Loss.

    With a POD after January 1, 1915, have World War I end with all of the thrones which existed prior to the war continuing to exist. Forcing Monarchs to abdicate in favor of sons/brothers is fine.
  2. AHC: Unified French Mandate.

    AHC: With a POD after 1923 have the French Mandate that iOTL was split between Syria and Lebanon gain independence as one country (and remain that way for at least a year). For these purposes Lebanon includes all of its current territory and Syria must contain at least the Hama and Damascus...
  3. Islam and the West African Coast?

    iOTL, it appears that Islam's spread in Africa "almost" reached the southern coast of Western Africa before the Western Europeans reached there. Was this a case of simply not enough time (if the Europeans hadn't arrived for another 100 years, it would have) or were there more specific reasons...
  4. Looking for a Britishscrew Timeline with princes killing princes...

    I don't remember whether it was a minor timeline or a particularly Britishscrew part of a more major TL, but a Crown Prince (or young British King) killed one of his brothers, wounded another and then committed Suicide (or something similar), the event was in either the Late 1700s or early 1800s.
  5. AHC: Confederacy wins without Virginia (or foreign assistance)

    AHC: With a POD after the beginning of the Mexican American War, have a victorious (slave holding) Confederacy that does not contain Virginia and that did not get overt help from a Foreign Power.
  6. Railroad connection across the Bering Strait

    I've seen a few Timelines where having a rail link through the Darien Gap makes sense (Decades of Darkness is the only one that springs immediately to mind) mostly for a USA taking most of the Americas. After seeing Snowpiercer , I'm wondering what possible history would hive a Railroad...
  7. War of the Belgian succession possible?

    At the turn of the 20th century, the line of succession of the Crown of the Belgians was *very* short. In 1900 Leopold II (died in 1909) 's heir presumptive was his brother Prince Philippe (who died in 1905) . Philippe had one living son, OTL Albert I, who himself had a son (OTL Leopold III) in...
  8. Any "Victoria born male" TLs?

    Has anyone seen any TL written where Queen Victoria is born male and thus becomes king of Hanover as well? On the one hand this adds another power Prussia needs to defeat to unify Germany, but I'm not sure that Prussia can't manage the one at a time that it did iOTL.
  9. AHC:Washington DC: Swing "State"

    OTL 2016 had Hilary taking 90.86% of the vote in Washington DC, Donald Trump took 4.09%, Gary Johnson 1.6% and Jill Stein 1.4%. It is not out of the question that Trump may finish third in Washington DC in 2020 (and still win the election). Challenge: With a POD after 1950 have the following 1)...
  10. Have significant areas first seen by Satellite.

    In Civilization III, the discovery of the technological advance Satellites reveals the entire world to the player, however in pretty much any game I've ever played, World and territory maps are cheap (if you aren't at war with a civ, you can trade for them for less money than building most...
  11. AHC:Australia one of the worst places to live in the world.

    With a POD of 1901 (Australian Nationhood), make Australia in 2019 the worst place in the world to live. Either OTL North Korea-esque or (preferably) OTL Somalia-esque. Rules: 1) No more than 10 times the nukes used in anger than OTL, and *none* of the nukes can detonate on Australia. 2) An...
  12. Any Pre 1864 elections change if 3/5 count for slaves is 1 or 0?

    Does anyone have the information necessary to calculated which Presidential elections prior to the Civil War would have gone differently if the EV for the Southern States had reflected either their slaves counting the same as the whites (and thus more EV in the south) or slaves not counting at...
  13. 1850 POD, significantly more English Speakers...

    With a POD on or after 1850 have the world have significantly more English speakers than it does now... As far as I can tell, the only TLs with PODs after 1850 with more English speakers than OTL are ones with something atomically bad occuring somewhere in the world (For example...
  14. AHC:North America "striped" the other way.

    North America iOTL has three large countries, North, Center and South. With a POD of 1700, is it reasonable to get it "striped" the other way, with three large countries, East, Center and West. Country East should include at least OTL Miami, Richmond, Buffalo and Montreal as well as all or most...
  15. AHC: Poland with a larger population than China.

    Based on a posting in another thread about a grimdark scenario with the Chinese Mainland split between the ROC and PRC... With a POD after 1900 have Poland (defined as any nation with the capital in Warsaw) have a greater population than China (defined as the most populous of the nations that...
  16. Did the US have unique luck when it came to initial leaders?

    Looking at the initial leadership of the various states in Latin America, it seems like the United States, with a two term relatively apolitical president, followed by his VP followed by a peaceful transfer of power to the opposition, all finishing their expected terms of office had luck that...
  17. AHC:Cut off a significant number of Nazi troops in Western France

    Challenge: Have the Western Allies hook up invasions of Northern France and the Mediterranean coast (could even be a breakout from Northern Italy.) in a way that cuts off a significant number of troops in Western France.
  18. AHC:Double the nations with Arctic claims (to the North Pole)

    iOTL, there are six nations with Arctic Claims: The US (from Alaska), Canada, Denmark (from Greenland), Iceland, Norway, and the USSR. With a POD after 1900, double the number of nations with (serious) Arctic claims to the North Pole by 2015.
  19. Marcionism or close as the primary thread of early Christianity...

    Anyone have any ideas for a TL where Marcionism or something close becomes the primary Christian sect of the Roman empire? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcionism I'm wondering in 300AD how many Jews existed outside the bounds of the Roman Empire (Persia, I guess) and whether that would have...
  20. Taft's second term and World War I.

    Every TL that I've seen with the US in World War I talks about how Wilson (as OTL), Teddy Roosevelt or (in some of the more dystopian) Thomas Marshall (Wilson's VP). But I don't think that it is ASB to avoid the split between Taft and Teddy. I think a good start would be pretty much anyone...
