    Media landscape in a world where Reagan was assassinated in 1981?

    In 1981, Ronald Reagan is as nearly assassinated by John Hinkley Jr. There are, of course, plenty of threads on the matter- for plenty of press ions, since Reagan set the nature of US politics for the next 40 years (at least!). But one unremarked point was in the media landscape; under Reagan...

  6. WI: Tommy Dreamer goes out with his plans to kill Paul Heyman, then himself, live at WrestleMania.

    Tommy Dreamer, no joke, admitted he planned to do this. This wasn't a joke by him, he genuinely could've done it. The reason I kept this out of the fandom thread was that, well, not only is this a WI but it also would've definitely affected how the country would see sports entertainment.
  7. Thought experiement: What if LBJ went into the news business instead of politics?

  9. What Would Norse Horror Media Look Like?

    Okay, so I was inspired by this wonderful video by leftist YouTuber and media analyst Renegade Cut, where he analyzes how the horror genre in the western world is heavily influenced by Christianity, often making copious implicit or even explicit Christian (typically Catholic) imagery, monsters...

    Visual style guides for producing ATL media?

    As far as I can tell, at present, everyone who wants to produce a mockup of a BBC/New York Times front page, a graphic from The Economist and so on to add immersion to an ATL has got to more or less work out how to approximate the house styles of each of these publications (in terms of fonts...

  20. AHC: Neo-Assyrian Empire

    Your challenge if you choose to accept it, is with a POD in 625, during the reign of Sinsharikun (627-614 BCE), for the Assyrian Empire, already over extended and damaged, to fight off all of its foes and restore itself during the reign of Sinsharikun.
