    Dominion of the River Platte - An English Colony in South America
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    A beautiful flag provided to me by an internet friend many, many years ago; if you recognize the handiwork, please let me know so I can give proper credit! Hello, and welcome to my first crack at alternate history! This is an idea I've been marinating for nearly a decade by this point, and I'm...

    WI: Cicero survives

    Rather simple WI that could have rather significant ramifications: what if Cicero had lived past 43 BCE? Now, he was already 63 at the time, so it's perhaps far fetched to think he could survive too much longer, but it's an interesting idea all the same. Admittedly, it's a bit difficult to...

    Map Continuation 3 - China

    Since China has been divided, and there's no discussion ongoing in the wiki (, I think we should start this thread and try and work out a proper history for China. I was thinking that, since the PoD hasn't been clearly defined, we can assume (for now) that the...

    WI: Roman Federal Republic

    As I was thinking about one of the weaknesses of the Roman Republic, the huge need for appointed positions (who often had near-absolute power in their provinces) such as Pro-Consuls or Pro-Praetors, I had an idea: what if the Roman Republic had allowed Provinces to elect their own governments up...

    WI: Boulanger becomes President of France

    In 1883, a French General, Boulanger, came dangerously close to taking over the republic. Operating on a platform oddly reminiscent of fascism (nationalism, pluralism, militarism), he was seen as a perfect solution to republican instability at the time. What if Boulanger had become president...
