    Let's say that for whatever reason Weimar Germany does survive for decades, and Germany regains its strength over time. How plausible is it that they reverse ( some of) the changes the treaty brought upon, territorially and/or otherwise?

    PC/WI/AHC: House of Capet terminates earlier

    PC/AHC: a large Byzantine Empire with over one-third of its subjects Muslims in 1500

    Is it possible? POD can be as early as befits the scenario. Also, by "large" I mean at least roughly an area equivalent in land area to all of Turkey, Bulgaria, and Greece combined as they exist in the present day. Bonus points if a) if you can get the Muslim % up to a near-majority, b) if you...

    WI: WWI has Germany, UK, and Russia on same side

    Exactly what it looks like on the tin. I figure that, easily, that the issue if anything would be getting the UK and Russia aligned on the same side either due to chance (one nation going to war with both of them) or due to some sort of agreement settling the Great Game. Bonus points if you can...

    AHC: Korean-based nation conquering Japan (and vice versa)

    It is well known Toyotomi Hideyoshi tried and failed to conquer Korea. I'm yet to hear any evidence that the Joseon (or any of their predecessors) tried the same, or if any Japanese rulers before or after Toyotomi Hideyoshi tried to do so prior to the late 1800s. Regardless, what would be needed...

    WI: Geopolitical effects of a surviving Soviet Union

    Let's assume that Gorbachev successfully reformed the Soviet Union (through a successful Union Treaty) and retired triumphantly in 1995, after 10 years in power. It is a multi-party democracy still dominated by the Communist Party, which has lost only one Soviet-wide election since 1991. (a la...

    DBWI: What if the Charlottetown Accords failed?

    as you know, after Meech Lake failed, the Charlottetown Accords passed, with a 6% margin and Quebec voting narrowly in favor. Mulroney, boosted by this success, retired in January 1993. He was succeeded by Jean Charest in March, who led the party to another slim majority in the July 1993...

    PC/AHC/WI: Blacks a major swing group in American politics

    Historically, blacks have been suspectable to bloc voting. What if they, once the alt-Civil Rights Acts were passed, they were a swingy demographic that it was difficult to win by a landslide? What PODs are necessary for that to occur?
