    Allohistorical Victorian Spacepunk

    Okay! Good! I would suggest then that you begin by looking into rocketry a little. Have a look at how it developed. Sure, you can have a look at the big names and all that, but I am strongly of the opinion that the beauty of world-building when it comes to science fiction is the ideas and...

    Allohistorical Victorian Spacepunk

    Okay, so, what is your basic idea for how these Victorian astronauts get to the moon? Rocketry, or...?

    Allohistorical Victorian Spacepunk

    Okay. So what kind of a world is this? What is their level of technology? What kind of stuff can you find in it, for instance?

    And the whole getting a man on the moon is going to be central to the story then, or just something that is happening in the periphery?

    Allohistorical Victorian Spacepunk

    I'm going to need a little bit more information as to what exactly it is you have in mind, because this is a very, very broad question. Are we looking at a Look to the West-like story where the development of history from 1751 to 1901 is the plot? Do you just want a rough sketch for a backdrop...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    Lee Harvey Oswald is innocent of the murder of JFK, and he really just was a patsy and framed for the killing. He does however manage to escape from prison, gets a whole new identity, tries to make it work, only to be framed for the killing of RFK. He escapes again, and once more finds himself...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game 2

    Heh! The very moment I saw @Meadow's graphic, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. The image and backstory formed right there and then in my head. I was actually kind of worried for a second once it became apparent that Tom shouldn't have sent it to me that you would take it away from...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game 2

    I'll never quite understand your ability to produce such detailed professional maps in such a short time. I imagine that you've already got countless base maps just laying around from other projects, but... one for every occasion? How is this possible? I was kind dounted last time around because...

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    "Well, I mean, there were the rumours of course, but we all assumed that they were false. After all, if they were true, someone would come forward, surely? Then of course, it turned out that those rumours were all false. The skeletons that the man actually had in his closet were, err-... well...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game 2

    I actually spent some time looking at actual Taiwanese caricatures of Chiang Ching-kuo, just to make sure that what I ended up drawing wouldn't look too racist. I feel I managed reasonably well, but to be blunt, I always feel concerned when I try to draw cartoons of non-white people.

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game 2

    AND AFTER ALL THIS TIME I CAN PROUDLY POST MY MASTERPIECE!!! :D Okay, so, what did I know? Well, apparently the Nationalists somehow persevered in the Middle Kingdom, and the Republic of China is no mere island off the coast of Fujian. They’ve also decided to keep Beiping as the name of the...

    I don't quite think you understand how narcissistic I am, Alex. I need him to post so I can post my own!
