  1. AHC: Culturally/Linguistically Alternate Scandinavia

    Make a different culture/language rule and be the majority over most or all of Scandinavia instead of the Norse. POD may be as early as needed, though better if it affects the rest of Europe as least as possible. I'm honestly not quite sure what could do it, maybe the Saami/Finnic groups? I...
  2. Alternate Monster/Kaiju Movies

    For some reason, I feel that monster movies and alternate history go so well together and have had come up with some ideas relating to them. Plus, since there are a few posts and threads (the ones about Gorgo and Nessie, for example) that have already discussed specific characters from this...

    Lands of the North Slavs

    When proto-Slavic tribes moved north from Pommern following pressure from Germanic peoples and met with others who had moved west after conflict with Hunnic states, they soon merged and formed their own distinct branch of Slavic culture. By 1000 AD most native Norse people adopt the slavic...
  4. AHC: Cultural differences between U.S. states similar to that between Arab countries

    With a POD no earlier than 1776, and the U.S. having the same borders as OTL, how could the cultural differences between the states in the United States be about as wide as the cultural differences between Arab countries? Some states for example would have dialects largely unintelligible to...

    Photos from Alternate Worlds II (read FAQ first)
    Threadmarks: Welcome ! (Introduction)

    The original Photos from Alternate Worlds, started by Tetsu in 2005, was one of the first major threads on AH.com to deal with "media from alternate worlds" as its premise. After more than 12 years (!), that thread reached the end of its life with nearly 500 pages of content and has been closed...

In a world without Hitler and without an european WWII, what are your most confident thoughts for differences in TTL's culture, at least for a short time frame after Hitler's supposed death in prison or whatever? The ones i can mostly...

    Cultural WI: ATL Hippie movements (and analogues) created elsewhere than the US

    What are some factors behind the kickstarting of hippie-like movements elsewhere than the US ? Under what particular circumstances could such movements be created in various parts of the world ? Given that I'm posting this in the After 1900 forum, the timeframe is 20th century, for simplicity's...

    Challenge: Socially liberal authoritarianism

    I know the idea sounds like an oxymoron at face value, but let's not be lazy and try to imagine how such a regime or society could come into existence. Because this is AH.com, we've made weirder concepts work in the past. Basically, my general idea is that we have a state/regime which is very...

    Analogues of the Western genre in alternate timelines ?

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Do you think such genres would crop up even in wildly divergent timelines ? The themes about "exploring and colonizing the unknown frontier" are certainly timeless and the romanticism and adventure of the Wild West/Wild Outback/Wild Siberia mythos of OTL provides...
