    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Today I should feel relieved to come back to my home soil after fighting so long for it. Instead I only feel guilt and regret about killing for British interests and hegemony. We must lead our country towards its own path if we do not want to lead a century of British domination over us. -...

    WI: China ends up Balkanized

    A basic concept, in short, China ends up being split into separate nations at some point in the 1800s. Wether it be via civil unrest spilling over, colonial influence, or any option you can think of.
  8. WI: Napoleon balkanizes the Habsburg Monarchy/Austrian Empire

    I don't quite know if this is possible considering that nationalism was still in its infancy, but what would have happened if Napoleon had at least attempted to balkanize the Habsburg Monarchy / Austrian Empire the same way he had dismembered the Holy Roman Empire?

    The Divided States of America

    Your challenge is to create a world where the USA collapses into 10 or more nations. The POD has to be prior to 1900, however, this doesn't mean that the USA has to collapse before then. Also, no Articles of Confederation related timelines, those are a bit overused! Hopefully I did this right...
