  1. Alternate Electoral Maps

    I tried my best at approximating this map in the redraw tool all the cool kids seem to be using lately. I say 'approximate' because it looks like Neil Freeman's original map spliced through a few current county borders. Compare the state of Los Angeles and the area around El Paso for examples...
  2. Cadavera Vero Innumera

    And now the maps hosted on Imageshack are malfunctioning at the source, too. As such, I have instead decided to post all of the maps to my previously lurking-only DeviantArt account. Enjoy the (still only up to 700 a.d. :o) cartographic goodness!
  3. Cadavera Vero Innumera

    It seems the one that disappeared were the ones I hosted on Imageshack. All the maps are still hosted there just fine, so I don't know what happened. Do any readers know of a way to fix this problem without have to repost the images? Worst-case scenario I'll have to bother a moderator to let...
  4. Cadavera Vero Innumera

    Thanks! The standard quarter-centennial map will ensue once I remember (read as: figure out all over again) how I made the previous maps in paint.NET, GIMP, and Inkscape. I haven't really fiddled with a map in anything other than standard MSPaint in a long time.
  5. Cadavera Vero Innumera

    I told you it wasn't dead. 721: Chindagild III orders the baptism of all Jews in Visigothia, specifically baptism in the Catholic rite of Christianity; the autonomous Arian chieftains naturally refuse, providing Chindagild a casus belli for war With the return of Umvahidan forces to Thracia, a...

    ...did you only just now read the update that was posted *checks time stamp* just over a year ago? It wouldn't be a resurrection because the timeline's not dead per se. It is just in a state of VERY deep hibernation. I seriously didn't realize this thing hadn't been updated in a year. I've...
  7. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    And now, for the last settler dominion of my leader lists (links to the old ones below). Sorry for the delay. Civilization: Beyond Earth has devoured my life. 1895-1904: Paul Kruger (Afrikaner) [1] 1904-1909: Jan Hendrik Hofmeyr (Afrikaner) [2] 1909-1910: John X. Merriman (Afrikaner) [3]...
  8. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    Now for the next installment of my series: the kiwi prime ministers. In retrospect, this list seems a bit too parallel to OTL, but it's a bit too late to change that now. 1893-1906: Richard John Seddon (Liberal) [1] 1906-1911: Joseph Ward (Liberal) [2] 1911-1913: William Massey (Reform) [3]...
  9. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    The annoying part of posting these lists is that, with the exception of the US, CS, and UK, I didn't keep notes as to why I selected the heads of state in question, which means footnotes are mostly a result of re-research. Anyway, let's go Down Under to witness how London's stronger...
  10. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    The perceived threat of the U.S., plus the imperial agendas of Tupper and then Chamberlain, helped to navigate Newfoundland into Canada's orbit. As for Manitoba, the situation in western Canada is all shook up after I butterflied away Louis Riel's return to Canada, thus averting/modifying the...
  11. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    So apparently the F4 key on my new laptop doesn't need me to press 'Alt' to close a window. That was a fun way to lose a post. Let's try this again: Canadian prime ministers, now with more Duverger's Law! 1867-1878: John A. MacDonald (Conservative) [1] 1878-1886: Alexander Mackenzie...
  12. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    Thanks.:D I'll post Canada sometime soon (on my phone atm)
  13. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    Continuing this series, here we have the British prime ministers from the P.O.D. to the 'present.' While lists from here on out won't have election dates and defeated opponents like the prior two, I'll try to make up for it w/ more descriptive footnotes. 1859-1866: Lord Palmerston (Liberal)...
  14. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    Here's the list of Presidents of the Confederate States, as promised. For those who didn't see it, the corresponding list of U.S. presidents is near the bottom of the previous page. Hopefully I avoided most of the Confederacy's AH cliches. 1861-1868: Jefferson Davis/Alexander H. Stephens...
  15. List alternate PMs or Presidents

    Something from an alternate history setting that I made for a college roommate of mine a few years back for a NaNoWriMo of his. His initial authorial requirements were: surviving Confederacy, German victory in alt-Great War, and ZEPPELINS, so there's been only so much triage I could do...
  16. Can WW1 be avoided?

    The Saverne Affair shows that the military faction in German politics could be given a black eye by more pacifistic factions. If WWI as we know it is averted by a surviving Franz Ferdinand, perhaps enough time would allow the pacifists to weaken the militaristic faction further. If...
  17. Can WW1 be avoided?

    If they were all ticked off, then why didn't all of the other crises at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century not explode into an early WWI? This has already been refuted twice during this thread. Germany had accepted that the naval arms race was over, and the episode at Kiel...
  18. Can WW1 be avoided?

    Earlier this month I attended a talk by Michael Neiberg about his book Dance of the Furies (as such, I can only relay what I remember of the talk, considering I haven't read the book in question). The thesis of his book is, bluntly, WWI was incredibly avoidable. Franz Ferdinand's assassination...
  19. The Ruins of an American Party System: From 1920 Onward

    IIRC, succession law at the time designated the Secretary of State as the Acting President in such an event.

    Thank you!:) I wouldn't say there's NO research to do. You still need to know, generally, about what Dark Ages kingdoms are capable of and likely to do. I still look up what happened OTL to get a sense of what's plausible ITTL. But things do get difficult when you get to a point where such a...
