    Yeah, I definitely had inspiration from places like the Hague, the Palatinate, etc.

    So the thing is, this is based off of a WorldA map, which for me has a lot of limited stuff to go off of. Of course, there can be even more minor petty kingdoms that were in existence on Eire that didn't warrant enough space to be shown on the map, but I would imagine by the 1400s they would all be vanquished by the bigger powers.

    In ITTL, Ireland was unified into one single Caliphate (very different from a Middle Eastern Caliphate, but the name still holds) (see more below), so I would think that the Eirish would have developed a much more interconnected kinship than OTL, which were really a cluster of fractured states and clans all vying for power. So really, it wasn't a regional peoples thing, but more of a national Eirish identity.

    As of the 1440s, Fechmoiri (Irish Islam) is being pushed to the west and are gradually being reduced to only communities in the western frontier (and whose disappearence will be made even faster with some Cultural Revolution-lite-esque reforms passed by later Ireland) as Ireland gradually becomes Catholic, but during Roman times all of Ireland (and Brittania) is solidly Muslim.

    I would love to see more from this. If you would also like to collaborate in making a final product, I can help along.

    It's from a reverse map game. Rather than a point of divergence, it has a point of convergence; the further back in time, the more different things are from OTL. It's an inherently ASB premise, but a really fun one, because it lets you take bits and pieces from history and put them wherever you want, really.

    Honestly, rather than a point of total convergence, it's more of a convergence only for the map and for a rough outline of the buildings on mankind. HMverse is very very different from ours (with the aforementioned exceptions), consisting of entirely different ethnic compositions, artifacts, and different ways of thought from ours.

    But it's fun nontheless:D

    Anyone who can point right near Earth on that map gets the no-prize.

    Im going to guess Sol/Earth is the extremely-obvious-from-standing-out-among-the-shades-of-blue red dot on the map.
