  1. Sitting Bull joins the Ghost Dance movement, inspiring widespread Indian resistance to US expansion

    Whelp, considering the Ghost Dance as a movement ended in blood even without Sitting Bull, this could turn US public opinion as viewing the Indians not being pacified. This will only result in further bloodshed and oppression.
  2. WI: Alexander the Great lives to 75?

    Honestly, by the time Alexander dies, assuming he is a competent ruler on top of being a conqueror, which considering his efforts to co-opt the existing Persian power structures and fusing Macedonian ones onto them I believe he is, we can do as your previous post has said and look to empire both...
  3. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    True, I had forgotten that a .276 version of the Garand had been created for this trial, but this is after the 1924, 26, 27, and 28 trials which had it be chambered for 30-06, and it was Garand's work on the .276 prototype that was then also scaled up to (30-06 developed in parallel in case...
  4. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    I love the update, I only found this TL in the last month or so and have been loving it, especially as the Balkans during the interwar period tends to get overlooked in favor of German shenanigans, which is unfortunate, if understandable. My only quibble would be the M1 Garand being in .276...
  5. "What Madness Is This?" Volume II: Prophecies in the Dark

    you are forgetting one thing: scale. NK can do horrific things to its citizens but it is primarily isolated on its one section of the Korean peninsula, Cocaro on the other hand brutilizes populations from Africa to the Caribbean to Corea and northern china all while putting on a happy face...
  6. Separated at Birth: America and Drakia

    Arthur Klein. A bastard, traitor, sonuvabitch who probably deserves everything coming to him in the afterlife. but ill be damned if he isn't my favorite character in this entire TL despite it all.
  7. "What Madness Is This?" Volume II: Prophecies in the Dark

    I think thats "Totally Accurate Battle Simulator"
  8. "What Madness Is This?" Volume II: Prophecies in the Dark

    You all have a point in that there are enough poison pills to maybe have my concerns amount to a nothing burger, a la the Joker movie, but at the same time my watching the last decade of ironic extremism jokes mask actual extremism has made me wary.
  9. "What Madness Is This?" Volume II: Prophecies in the Dark

    The greatest risk about publishing a story/making a movie/TV show in the WMiT universe isn't those who don't like it, It will be those who enjoy it for the wrong reasons. WMiT becoming widely appreciated outside of alternatehistory.net runs a huge risk of drawing in the people who enjoy it...
  10. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    Fuckan that's horrible. You have my deepest condolences, I am sorry for your loss and hope you and your wife make it through this.
  11. Separated at Birth: America and Drakia

    I'm not so sure, it may take a few decades, but once an ideology has been in vogue for a few years, there will be more than a few powers/organizations who will eventually copy significant portions of it or attempt to resurrect it. Look at OTL's neo-nazi movements in the US and Germany as...
  12. Separated at Birth: America and Drakia

    Wait a minute. does that mean the shit he just pulled is EBR's "Klein's Last Act?". Considering the US was still being bombed he may have just spared the rest of the country from further bombardment.
  13. Pride Goes Before a Fall: A Revolutionary Greece Timeline

    Hmmmm.... looks like a stalemate favoring Russia, if only because of the east. Another fantastic chapter!
  14. Pride Goes Before a Fall: A Revolutionary Greece Timeline

    Honestly, that's entirely dependent on how involved GB and France get in the area and whether or not special economic zones that are colonies in all but name get carved out by them to get their parents and/investment and back
  15. Pride Goes Before a Fall: A Revolutionary Greece Timeline

    In terms of weapons development, Greece will most likely buy licences for firearms production from on of the powers, likely France, as they purchased many weapons from them OTL.
