    Threadmarks: Preface

    PREFACE This is a new TL that I have in the works, which will be told by maps (Making Qbam/Mbam maps is what I crave) and wikiboxes, which is why I put my TL here.

  10. Pop-Culture in TNO

    Note: If you have objections against this mod, please do not comment Inspired by the various pop-cultures of <universe X> threads, how do you think fiction and pop-culture will develop in TNO? For one I see that if Japan loses the GAW and a far-right government falls because of that, anime...

    What is the most dystopian AH work ever created?

    There's this, but it's so extremely unrealistic it can barely be classified as AH in the first place.
  14. Could a more hardline (Stalinist-lite) USSR survive to this day, even after a complete economic implosion?

    Like a 22.400.000 km-long North Korea, of sorts. Complete with the military being the only semi-functional state organ, near-famine conditions being the norm and the very thought of 'national self-determination' netting someone at least a 3-generation long kin punishment in the...

    AHC: "Nazi" Confederates

    Disclaimer: As should be obvious, I am neither in favor of the so-called Lost Cause of the Confederacy or Nazism. So the challenge here is to have the CSA managed to get its independence and then have it (or a potential successor state) devolve even farther into a totalitarian, expansionist...
