  1. WI: Divided Russia

    Let's say that during the XVI century Muscovy balkanizes somehow and no other state unifies Russia before the XIX century. What's going to happen to the rest of Europe? Any thoughts? Also if you know a TL that involves this PoD, please say it.
  2. AHC: Have Eastern Europe rise to power instead of Western Europe

    So, today's challenge: have Eastern Europe (Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, etc) be considered the metaphorical center of modern civilization (even though your mileage may vary on whether it actually is or not) instead of Western Europe. Due to geographical difficulties, colonial empires (at...
  3. A United Baltic

    How do we create a united Baltic state that is mainly centered around the modern Baltic states? They have to be independent states, not a puppet state. The Pod has to be after the 7th centuries.
  4. AHC: Unite most of Europe before 1200 AD

    Could most of Europe have been united into a single state or empire by the end of the High Middle Ages? (POD can be any time period, even in ancient times). By most of Europe, I mean about 70% of the continent's area. Tributaries, client kingdoms, and vassal states count as part of the empire's...

    AHC: Create a Lipka Tatar Nation

    Lipka Tatars are a very interesting historical ethnic group. First made up of pagan Tatars fleeing Islamization in late Middle Ages, then subsumed by Muslim Tatars, the Lipka Tatars settled in what is now Belarus, Poland and Lithuania. Though for a long time they served as a military cast and...

  7. AHC Bigger Eastern European populations during communist era

    How could you with a pod preferly in 1945, change the direction of the region such that Eastern European countries have a larger population in 1989 than in OTL? These countries should become communist as in OTL, atleast nominally. Eastern Europe being defined as the countries that became...
  8. Avoid the fertility decline in post communist Europe

    AHC: Another country in a Greece-like situation in Eastern Europe

    Greece was a capitalist country only neighboring one other capitalist, US-aligned country: Turkey. Could another country be like Greece? An oasis of capitalism in a desert of communism, where they only border one other US-aligned country or none at all? I am thinking that Romania, what with...

    AHC: Nordic "Russia"

    So Scandinavian vikings ruled the Kievan Rus for a long time, is there anyway for this Scandinavian influence to be increased to where it fills the role Byzantine influence had in the development of OTL's east slavic cultures? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make *Russia a...

    AHC: Achieve the borders on this map.

    Or at least as close as possible. Perhaps I should have put it as pre-1900 considering how ASB-ish this map is, but oh well.
  13. Eastern Europe in a Central Powers Victory

    What would the East look like in a late Central Power Victory? Yes I know this has been done already a few times but I couldn’t find anything using the Worlda format. Central Powers win by taking Paris in the Spring offensive in 1918, bringing the allies to the negotiating table. Treaty of Brest...

    AHC: North Korea-esque rogue state in Eastern Europe

    With a POD after 1970, come up with a scenario where a rogue state akin to the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea" in it's mixture of batshit insanity, oppressive government, and willingness to threathen it's neighbors with war is found in Eastern Europe. Bonus points if said dictatorship is...

    No Ceaușescu: Affects on Romania

    Basic idea is Nicolae Ceaușescu never rise to power in Romania, between him dying in World War 2, or sometime before 1965. So who will lead Romania? What affects would this have on Romania, and possible Eastern Europe, and the Cold War as a whole?
  16. Wrenches and Transistors - East Bloc nations hold on to State-owned industries

    How can we get a TL in which Communism falls in Eastern Europe around the time as it did in OTL, but most of the countries that formed the former East Bloc decide to hold on to the State-owned industries they built up during Communist times (particularily in the manufacturing of consumer...

    Can the Cold War end with successful Eastern bloc economic reforms and Soviet unity?

    Can the Cold War end with the Eastern bloc reforming their economies and avoiding the "Era of Stagnation" and without the Soviet Union collapsing afterwards? How would the Soviet and Eastern European political parties fare after 1989 in this scenario? As far as I remember, South Korea became...

    Eastern Europe without the Slavs?

    I understand that it's impossible to tell what Eastern Europe would look like without the Slavs, since they shaped it so much and history would be almost unrecogonizable without them - but that's not what I'm asking. What I am asking, is what ethnic groups would be present in Eastern Europe if...

  20. DBWI: Urbanized Western Europe, Rural Eastern Europe?

    Ever since the days of the Greeks, those who named Europe and Asia, the eastern Mediterranean has always been more developed than the western Mediterranean. This persisted through the days of the Roman Empire. When the moldboard plow made the heavier, cooler soils of Sarmatia as productive as...
