    Hell or Highwater: Buddy Cianci and the Decade of Malice

    What is this? A timeline where an underrated figure from Rhode Island becomes president. His name is Buddy Cianci. At one point he was considered a rising star in the Republican Party so I got an idea. Why? I got bored at school. How long will this last? Hopefully until I finish it or get...

    Gran Colombia

    Gran Colombia was a massive country that was composed of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Panama from 1819 to 1831. Do you think it could still be existing today? If so, how? What impact do you think its existence would have in Latin America, and the rest of the world?

    Alternate History Idea-Independent Scottish Caledonia

    (A more outlandish idea of mine) What if in alternate timeline, the Kingdom of Scotland colony in Panama was Successful, fighting of the Spanish, English and keeping a steady supply, until it becomes self-efficient. This however still doesn’t save Scotland from the Act of Union of 1707...
  9. AHC: Earliest possible Panama Canal

    Inspired by a recent game of Eu4, where I managed to build the Panama Canal as the Aztecs in 1767! Obviously that specific scenario is very implausible, but what's the earliest possible time the canal could have been built? The only rule is technology has to progress at the same rate as OTL.

    WI: The US invades Venezuela in 1977?

    For the purposes of a story i'm currently writing, I was hoping to get some insight on this. The essential idea is that, at the signing of the Torrijos–Carter Treaties in 1977, President Jimmy Carter is assassinated by hard-line Communist terrorists from Venezuela, Panama, and Cuba. In response...
