The Dunes of the Desert timeline is a timeline written mainly by Tomislav´s Major Projects, a user from Slovakia, who tried to explore the results of a world without islam. While starting in the 7th century, the timeline is now in the 12th century and usually updates are descied as chapters, each speaking of a certain geographic area. After all needed regions are described, usually a global overview arrives, when a general map of the world, showing political, linguistic and religious makeup is displayed.
At first, the map used was that of CK2; however the author considered it to be too inaccurate and switched to the map used in the URHAFAH Project, the original author of which was User:Drex.
The colour scheme used in maps is predominantly THICC for political ones, CK2 for government types, TURCS for Religion (now integrated into THICC) and Linguistic Map Thread´s for the Linguistic map.
