1. An Expansive Alternate Timeline - The Riotous 5th Century

    Shalom, I would like to share the first stirrings of a new timeline I'm working on. The scope is so unfocused and the divergences so numerous that I've elected to name this timeline "the Riotous 5th century." Right now the starting date for the timeline is 451 AD - the year that Attila, seeing...

    AHC: Modern-Day Hunnic Ethnic group(s)

    Challenge: With a POD from 450s to 700s, make a group of Huns survive in either Europe, Eurasia, the Caucasus, or Asia. So, make a modern-day Hunnic Ethnicity, after Attila, either a small ethnic group, or a large nation of Hunnic People. Bonus points, for a modern-day Hunnic nation(s), and...
  3. WI: Theodoric and Attila's fates reversed

    What if, at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, Theodoric I survived and Attila the Hun died, rather than the other way around?
  4. WI: Attila survives

    Whether you believe the traditional story that Attila the Hun died of a severe nosebleed after celebrating his marriage to Ildico, the fact remains that he lost his life in 453. But what if he didn't? What might change if Attila lived significantly longer?

    Battle of the Catalaunian Plains: Theodoric survives, Attila dies

    This is kind of a double-barrelled POD, with the first leading to the second. During the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, Theodoric, King of the Visigoths (i.e. not Theodoric the Great, who was born shortly afterwards) was slain unbeknownst to his men during a charge, and his son Thorismund...
  6. AHC: Make the Hunnic Empire an actual sedentary, urbanized empire

    Attila's Empire was notably more of a series of tributary relationships and alliances against the Roman Empire between various migratory peoples, rather than an actual empire. How could Attila's empire have turned into an actual sedentary and urbanized empire stretching from, at the least, the...

    WI: Attila defeats the romans at the Catalaunian Plains

    (I already made a thread on the Battle of The Catalaunian Plains a few months ago, but i think it's already too old to be bumped.) What if Attila, The Hun, had managed to defeat Flavius Aetius and his germanic foederati allies at the Catalaunian Plains in 451 AD? Would this spill an earlier end...

    WI: Attila Wins at the Battle Of The Catalaunian Plains

    What if Attila, king of the huns, had managed to defeat the romans and their barbarian allies at the Battle Of The Catalaunian Plains (451 AD)? Would he be able to conquer Gaul? And after conquering Gaul, where would he go next? Italy? What are the effects on the barbarian migrations? What are...

    WI/AHC: Attila more successful

    For all the things he did, they was just a few that was out of his reach. He plundered the Balkans, but failed to take Constantinople. His invasions of Persia failed. He crossed the Rhine, but got beat at Catalaunian Plains. He invaded Italy, but unable to take Rome. And thus died before he...
