  2. 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...

  5. (DBWI) What if the Virtual Boy failed?

    In 1995, one of Nintendo's most revolutionary devices was released to the market: the Virtual Boy!

    DBWI : Germany holds on to Lorrain ores

  9. DBWI: Rome and Carthage as enemies

    When it comes to alliances, you don't get much more legendary than Rome and Carthage. When Pyrrhus invaded Sicily, it was only natural that the actions he took would cause the two republics to develop the kind of friendship that can only be forged in fire. Together, the two would square off...

    DBWI: Prussian Germany?

    OTL, Germany is fundamentally Bavarian, as during the Congress of Vienna, Britain wanted a more central german power than the eastern Prussians or the southern Austrians. Thus when King Maximilian I of Bavaria died in 1812 and his son Ludwig turned against Napoleon, they were rewarded with the...
  13. DBWI: Make the Dubai land reclamation projects fail

    Dubai is home to some of the most amazing engineering projects on land reclamation with projects like the Palm Islands, the World, the Universe and others.

    DBWI - Could Portugal exist without the Buri/Bouros?

    I've read and contributed to these forums for almost two years now. I've enjoyed reading many threads; LiarLiarPantsonFire's question regarding the fate of Jaille following the hypothetical defeat of Syagrius at the hands of Frankish king Clovis was intriguing, even if renaming the country from...

    DBWI: Sonic X had human characters

    Since the Sonic X anime had anthropomorphic animals in place of the human characters that live in Station Square, I heard that this show was originally going to have human characters, but Sega turned it down because based on the way they look, they don't really like the eyes, same applies to the...

  18. DBWI: DCEU without the Feige defection?

    Like him or loath him, Kevin Feige’s influence helped shaped the DC Entertainment Universe probably more then anyone else.

  20. DBWI: Justin Bieber went into singing

    I remember a video or maybe of Florida Panthers player Justin Bieber playing guitar as a young child. One of them is below. It actually makes me imagine what if Justin never got into hockey like IOTL. What would both the NHL and music worlds look like if Justin was a music star rather then a...
