  1. AHC: Make a "Biopunk" outlook on life and science less controversial in politics and society

    How could it be possible that by the year 2020 (with a possible earliest divergence point of 1900) genetically engineered organisms, and even human genetic engineering is seen as a good thing about as universally as Electricity is seen as a good thing in OTL? By the year 2020 seeing a 2 year...
  2. When has History "gone wrong" in securing a more progressive "Space Future" by our times? How could the present day be more advanced?

    For example in OTL, the 1960s saw huge advancements in both technological and social arenas, which made things like the Moon Landing and Woodstock possible. The early 70s were okay-ish, but later things started getting worse and the last progressive product of this rapidly advancing...
  3. What would a present day without World War 1 look like?

    Essentially no Fascism, no Communism, no Art Deco, no Prohibition, no "Dieselpunk". How do you think a world like this would evolve like in the 20th and 21st centuries? People becoming increasingly sexually open and naturalistic, with an Art Nouveau style spreading its comfortable vines all...

    Great Big Worlda Collaborative Project - REBOOTED: The Pantheon's Engine
    Threadmarks: OP

    In a timeline where Persia loses its grip on the ancient world and allows for the Classical civilizations to prosper and begin the first stages of proto-industrialization, world events that take millennia for our timeline happen one after the other as the dominoes fall. As the cogs of the world...

  6. AHC/WI Japan continues to be the high-tech, futuristic wonderland of the 1980s?

    What if by the 2010s, Japan continues to be a country that seems like to be at least 30 years ahead of the USA and Western Europe in technological development, and also completely free from the West's moral constraints, similar to its 1980s image? By the 2020s, Japan continues to be seen as a...

    Threadmarks: Premise

    So I've recently come across several worlds/pixel maps that have a lot of different elements. I think there isn't a specific classification for them but here are the examples: These two are from Mr. Imperator Roma over on deviant art. And this one is from @rvbomally I really like these...

    An Empire of Dreams: A World where the Magic of Star Wars lived on

    I hate directing. You go to work knowing just how you want a scene to be, but by the end of the day, you’re usually depressed because you didn’t do a good enough job. It’s hard enough just to walk through it, let alone direct the actors, move the equipment. It was easy to let go of directing...

    2010s Tropes

    So after I complete my 50s Atompunk map, I would like to get around to doing a 2010s punk map. I was wondering what sort of general vision we have for the future, such as 3D printing, the rise of China, self driving cars, climate change, etc. Any ideas?

    Darkest Days
    Threadmarks: Darkest Days opening post

    The Year, 2026. The world is a grim and dark place, with only small flashes of light sputtering on the globe. In the West, the Monolithic United States stands strong as a corporatist empire, leading the objectivist movement through the Freedom Coalition. Dominating most of Eurasia stands...

    If All The Ice Melted... (QBAM)

    Here is a map that needs improvement. 1: Some landmasses were left unedited. (Philippines, Indonesia, Central Africa, Canada/Alaska, Greenland, Norway, Chile, and Antarctica) 2: Some of the edited land masses are sloppy (I'm not that good at drawing maps) So if you want to contribute, that...
  15. The White House Run of '84

    It was January 10th 1984 when President Ronald Reagan was assassinated. He was no stranger to attempts, just 69 days into his presidency some nut in love with an actress had tried to shoot him, had gotten his then Press Secretary permanently disabled. However that didn't leave him in fear, that...
