 __Setting description:​__ In this timeline, the French emperor Napoleon sacrificed the romance of an Egyptian campaign (which he conducted in 1798 in our timeline) for a stealthy invasion of Ireland, granting him victory over Britain. By current year 2024, the world is divided between French, Japanese, Russian, and Brazilian Empires, along with the United States and the Russian Republic, and the world has achieved a stage of technological achievement and social disaffection and tension reminiscent of cyberpunk fiction. __Setting description:​__ In this timeline, the French emperor Napoleon sacrificed the romance of an Egyptian campaign (which he conducted in 1798 in our timeline) for a stealthy invasion of Ireland, granting him victory over Britain.

 __Setting description:​__ Named as such because it was the second parallel world discovered by the Infinity Patrol in which Nazi Germany had won World War II. This is an alternate timeline where Halifax became the British Prime Minister, negotiated an armistice with Germany, and then allied with Japan (by supplying them with oil and rubber) to break up the German-Japanese power-bloc. The current year is 1961, and the five great powers - Germany, Britain, USSR, Japan, and the US - are in a cold war, building orbiting nuclear missile platforms, and engaged in proxy wars throughout Africa, SE Asia, and the Middle East. __Setting description:​__ Named as such because it was the second parallel world discovered by the Infinity Patrol in which Nazi Germany had won World War II.
