    Map Thread XXI

    The Cyclopean City and the mountains beyond has never been visited since the Starkweather-Moore expedition disappeared in 1936, and the endless storms overtook the plateau. Many governments fancy themselves knowledgeable about what is hiding in the city and the plateau, and desperately desire...

    Map Thread XXI

    Rising above the flat Antarctic plateau, as a titanic pitch-black wall of hard ancient slate and dark limestone, the Miskatonic Mountains are the world’s highest - and most isolated peaks. Ever since being first discovered by the ill-fated Antarctic expedition of its namesake university, the...

    These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

    I believe you are misinterpreting the map. "New ICVs, Hybrids banned" means New Internal Combustion Vehicles and New Hybrid Vehicles are banned. Existing vehicles are allowed to operate.

    Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

    Many others have expressed this, but I want to say I really love this series of wikiboxes. It is especially cool to see that the aliens react in a very human way to contact, despite their disparate biology and history- with confusion, awe, shock, and humor. In fact, I think both the Rossites...

    To use a fictional nation flag/map, make a picture of the wikibox and manually insert the image using something like Inkscape.

    I can imagine the drool of Kevin Feige and the Disney Execs thinking about this.

    The horror of this state notwithstanding, I can only imagine the delusions of the tankies who defend Kampuchea as a socialist friend and ally against capitalism because they wave around red flags and the politburo sings the Internationale, even as the nation becomes the vehicle of the worst...

    Excellent wikibox! One very sad effect of this timeline is that Basque, Galician and other smaller minority languages in Spain are probably extinct ITTL. Catalan might be holding on but I'm sure the language is not has healthy as it is in OTL.

    A Sound of Thunder: The Rise of the Soviet Superbooster

    Bravo! What a magnificent way for the Soviets to get to the moon! They didn't end up beating the Americans, but they forged their own path to the moon and created a mission architecture in some ways superior to Apollo: much like what Artemis is trying to do today. I'm curious to how Zvezda 4's...

    (This is canon, posted it on the TFS discord but have not yet posted it here. Special thanks to Kibbutznik, Tibby, Rausch and others on the discord for checking everything over and giving ideas!)

    Wow. If FDR's legacy as one of the greatest presidents was solidified with four terms, then Dyer's six terms- which include ending segregation in the South, rebuilding the country after the Great Depression, fighting fascism- must make him a positively deified figure in American history, perhaps...

    I'm pretty sure if you asked most people in TFS, they wouldn't be able to give you a straight answer either.

    Essos as in the myriad of states which ASIOAF calls the "free cities", but by 657 AC are fully fledged nation states, not mere city-states anymore. It's basically like saying "America is being outpaced by Europe and Russia".
