In this world, the Assyrians were able to crush the Neo-Babylonian Empire in its infancy and remain in charge until the Persians swooped in a lifetime later and finished them off. The Persians were rather more Assyrian than in our world and when they got into wars with the Greeks, they deported them.
However, the Greeks were a strange people who failed to assimilate properly and so this was not quite the last the world heard of the Ionians (Yaunans)...
That Latin Empire disgusts me. Good job.View attachment 836186
This alternate history scenario follows a world where history diverges significantly during Timurs reign. Persia and Anatolia are far worse hit so Ottomans and Safavids are butterflied away. Timur attempts to conquer China but dies during the Battle. Mughals still happen but they collapse much earlier due to being much more brutal.
In the Middle East, a new Arabo-Kurdish dynasty rises similar to Ayyubids. However, Yazidi Soldiers of this state due to persecution of their beliefs and the blood tax enforced on them rebel and pull a coup similar to the Mamluks. Eventually, Yazidis came to dominate the region.
In Afghanistan, a controversial Sufi Leader going by the name Pir Roshan gains even more followers and succeeds in founding their own sect worshipping Heavenly Light known as Nur. They reject Sharia in favor of tribal Pashto law. This community and Zikri leaders of Coastal Baluchestan just happen to be much more successful than in our timeline and forge powerful kingdoms that assert greater influence on their surroundings.
This is fucking awesome. Some of the best content we’ve had on this thread in a while. Love anything in a textbook or brochure format & this gives so many windows into the world. I can definitely see people in the future being nostalgic for the north Japanese aesthetic the way they are for Socialist Yugoslavia or the USSR IOTL.
If you're asking if its eligible to nominate the whole thing and not just the map then yes, that's fine. If you're asking if the voters take into consideration the whole graphic then that's impossible to say but probably yes.This is fucking awesome.
