    Any good Pre-Columbian American PODs?

    The history of Pre-Columbian America is often seen as less important due to the massive catastrophes of plague and conquest that nearly destroyed the world of the Aztecs, Inca and Mississippians. What I am asking is are there any good points of divergence before Columbus' s arrival, especially...
  2. South American Dominoes

    An Alternate History of South America Part One In this alternate history, the USA doesn't do quite so well in the Revolutionary War and 1812, becoming more isolationist but no less successful as a result, with the Monroe-Canning Doctrine solidifying the uneasy neutrality between Anglo-Saxon...

  4. Thanksforallthefish's Argentina & Southern Cone Patch

    Isn't that a mouthful? Welcome! This is an attempt to make historical patches to the worlda focused on Argentina and the Southern Cone. This is not only out of patriotism: I geniuinly believe that this is an area severely lacking in AH works, and this is my little granito de arena to help with...

    Could Paraguay have been an Empire?

    I'm aware that many people here aren't very familiar with the history of Paraguay. But before 1870, Paraguay was the Prussia of South America. Paraguay had a phenomonal military for it's size in matters of both quantity and quality. It had infrastructure surpassing that of it's larger neighbors...
  8. The horse survives....in South America?

    This is probably on the fringe for what's allowed within before 1900 but hear me out. It is known that in OTL the horse once inhabited the Americas before dying out in its homeland, surviving in Asia and only returning during the last 500 years. I was thinking that the survival of North...
  9. WI: Llamas in Norte Chico.

    What are some possible knock-on effects of the early Norte Chico civilization developing trade networks that reached the Andes, thereby bringing domesticated llamas into their civilization? Could this lead to an earlier development of large-scale South American civilizations with widespread...

    The challenge is to have Brazil: 1)Remain a monarchy, or at least be a stable republic. That mean no coups, dictatorships or anything similar. 2)Don't screw the USA for the sake of making it easier, Brazil isn't supposed to be a superpower and the purpose of this challenge is for Brazil to be...

    Plausibility check / Challenge: North American and South American city states

    To be more specific, in a mostly post-Columbian timeframe (i.e. ca between 1500 AD and 1900 AD. As it is much easier to have city states created by local native cultures, I am more interested in how plausible the creation and survival of a long-lived city state (or small country that is mostly...

    Brazilian space WI: The 2003 VLS-1 rocket accident doesn't occur

    I'm talking about this. If it wouldn't have happened, would the infant Brazilian space programme be a bit further today ? Do any of our spacecraft-minded Brazilian members want to take a shot at this ?
