  1. DBAHC: Europe dominated by Latin and Germanic cultures

    Okay, so, Europe has historically been dominated by the Slavs and the Celts, with Celtic empires such as Prydhain and Gaul dominating the west while great Slavic cultural centers such as Poland, Bulgaria, and, to a lesser extent, the nations of the Rus hold court in the east. However, there are...

    DBAHC: The US Surpasses Britain In Influence?

    Ooc: this is a double blind, where we ask an alternate history question... from an alternate history. We ask what if the south broke away, people in tl 191 ask what if the south didn't. And to establish something: britain has lost india, British Arabia, Egypt and the Suez, but retains the rest...
  3. DBAHC: Swap the fates of the Byzantine and Sasanian Empires

    We all know what happened after the death of Muhammad. The newly Muslim Arabs spread out of Arabia, warring against both the Byzantine and Sasanian Empires.

  4. DBAHC: Reverse Detroit and Chicago's statuses

    Today, Detroit is considered one of America's "key cities": an international hub of finance, culture, commerce, industry, etc. Chicago, on the other hand, has spent decades as the butt of jokes about terrible places to live, and while things seem to be improving (at least for the moment), it...

    DBAHC: Wank The Rus

    Otl, since the fall of the Kievan Rus, the territory that might otherwise be a sort of rusland has never really united. Sweden and Poland jockeying for influence over the region never helped. Your goal is to make a major power out of the region.
  7. DBAHC/WI: Discovery Channel as a truly Trash Channel

    As of the early 2020's, the Discovery Channel airs a good variety of both straight documentaries, more sensationalist docs, and just plain dumb reality shows. The latter started appearing and getting prominent around 2010 or so, but began getting phased out in 2017 onwards with new management...

    DBAHC: End Monarchism

    Otl, Monarchy has survived a long ass time in some form or another. Currently the British, German and Russian empires are the strongest nations on earth, each balancing democracy and monarchy in their own way. Though most would say Britain is basically a republic instead of a kingdom. Your...

    DBAHC: Britain Owning Most Of India

    Before we begin, this is a Double Blind, where we ask an alt. history question from the perspective of someone in an alternate history- so if we ask 'WI the CP won WW1,' those people ask 'WI the Entente won WW1' OTL, India was carved up into several spheres of influence like Africa and the rest...
  11. DBAHC: More successful Canada, less successful Mexico

    Canada and Mexico are, in many ways, a study in contrasts. The former is infamous for seemingly being a "perpetual developing country", whereas the latter is known as an overall quite successful country despite a rough start (it does have some lingering issues, but no country is perfect). Your...

    DBAHC: Create This Spanish Empire

    Found this massive Spanish Empire- though apparently didn't hold quite all this at once or even under the kingdom of Spain- the Pink was claimed through some dynastic shenanigans and they inherited Portugal somehow as well, but I have no clue about that other stuff all over the place

    DBAHC: Screw The Incan Empire

    The Incan Empire was one of the only native states to avoid European conquests in the new world- the others being the Haida and the Cherokee. They achieved this through leasing out a few relatively unimportant mines to the Spanish and using the money to buy guns and the technology to make them-...

    DBAHC/WI: England As A Major Colonizer

    OOC: while yes, ttl scandinavia united and became a mainstay empire, it's not just a flat out role-reverse with Britain, IC: OTL, the main colonizing powers in europe make sense- France, Spain, Scandinavia, Portugal, the Netherlands (kinda). But there is one glaring exception. One place in...

    DBAHC: End Absolute Monarchy In Britain

    OOC: while Magna Carta was issued before the 100 year war broke out, if it failed idk how well it would be known OTL, Britain has had an absolute monarchy in all but name for centuries. Your goal is to change that. I have to imagine you'll want to have one side or another actually win the...

    DBAHC: Screw Sweden

    Sweden has been the great power of northern and eastern Europe for a long time, with most historians agreeing it surpassed it's competition some time around the 1520s. With colonies in the new world, Africa, and Asia, it and France have been the empires upon which the sun hasn't set for...

    Is there anyway to get a map like this by 1980? According to the site i found it on, most of eastern europe is soviet puppets, if it helps. I think for this to begin, we need the nazis to collapse a lot later than the 42 of otl if the soviets are to compete in the post war world...
