How did eriksonland become more populated than that part of the prairies?I've always really liked the idea of diverse colonial empires. The grand extent of some empires really doesn't do it for me- I want to see more people than the English, French, Portuguese and Spanish going out and committing atrocities in the name of their kings abroad. And so, I put this together.

As most worlda fragments are, this is part of a series. Expect more soon.
Thanks! I've noticed a problem with several of my scenarios is that they feel kind of detached and impersonal, so I've been trying to work on that.
No seriously, I always love worldbuilding like this. Makes it feel more alive. Fantastic work.
The IRI and USAM colors don't look too similar to me (I tried to get a brownish-gray and bluish-gray for them, respectively), but then again, I think the color receptor cells in my eyes might be screwed up to some extent (I have an appointment scheduled in February to check up on that). The White Republic is the country in Azerbaijan, yes. The Assyrians ended up picking the name in hopes of calling back to the Assyrian Empire- I meant it to be ironic what with all the bad luck they've had since the ISOT. The countries in Greece, the UAE, the Straits of Hormuz, and Cuba are all countries established by American, Mexican, or Iraqi men-who-would-be-kings over the years and are mostly alright places to live, if a bit religious, though the folks controlling the Straits of Hormuz have recently become big fans of making the Amero-Mexicans pay prices verging on exorbitant to let boats in and out of the Gulf, which will probably lead to the Amero-Mexicans getting fed up and just annexing them in less than a decade.I like this! The steadily liberalizing white nationalist USA is something you don't see much of, and the complex world-building is delightful. My only complaint is that the colors for the IRI and the USAM are a little too similar.
-Is the Nazi state that one in Azerbaijan?
-Why did the Sunni Arabs go with Assyria for their name instead of Syria or Mashreq?
-Who's the country in Greece?
-What about the independent states in the UAE and the straits of Hormuz?
-Who's the country in Cuba?
I've got to do my own cover of a Rio Grande/Mesopotamia ISOT now.
Thanks!Good show, Alexander North!
(Man, ISIL: you know your version of Islam is crappy when it drives Muslims to convert to a religion that has been largely out of fashion for thirteen centuries).
minor linguistic quibble: if things have improved, conflict has cooled, but relations have become warmer.
My immediate thought when reading this? Seems like it would be a hard sell getting a J. Brown elected as head of the slavocrat wing. Was he clean shaven?The Confederate Civil War - 1891 A.D.
This map is a remake of another quite bad map I made a few months ago for a small mini-timeline about a Confederate victory with a twist. The events of the Civil War itself are left ambiguous since the idea of the Confederacy achieving victory over the Union is quite frankly pretty unrealistic and the initial Southern war of independence isn't really the main focus, so I'll just leave it at quiet muttering about Order 191 and something about tacit European support. With all that said, here's a brief summary of the lore:
Superscience, superhero... have nazis and/or soviets something like that too? Even if less (especialy with fall of most of Germany...)View attachment 517850
Map from my universe where superhumans (about 10% of the world’s population, almost all of them in the Americas) and weird science exist.
D-Day began with the invasion of Germany itself in the Nordenham-Wilhelmshaven area. The coast was moderately defended as most German assets were moved to France to defend the area they thought the invasion would come from. Thanks to that there was little standing in the way of the Allies swiftly over-running the rotten heart of the Reich.
Current date on the map is November 1944, about two months after this world’s equivalent of the Battle of the Bulge, which took place along the former German-Polish border. The SS struggles to keep its offensive going and fend off the Soviets, who despite overwhelming odds and a massive technological disadvantage are pushing west. The Wehrmacht is nearly trying to hold off Allied offensives into occupied Norway and Spain all at the same time. Whether it’ll take continued offensive action or if the Reich will implode on its own remains to be seen.
