    Aren't Penguin's normally birds? And who are the Aranychans? I do appreciate the random details like that Orcadians are Reptiles now.

    UK retains more of the British empire post 1945

    I think that having a roughly French DOM/TOM style arrangement is a bit awkward, for a couple of reasons. The first is that, other than Malta, I can't see that there all that many that would obviously be willing to stay in the UK, even under a more equitable and less colonial arrangement...

    Election maps and assorted others

    By the lack of Reykjavic insert I'm guessing that the differences in region populations are fairly marked for these!

    AH Run-downs, summaries and general gubbins

    Shouldn't Berber be in here (30-odd million speakers today mostly between Morocco and Algeria), or did something nasty happen at some point? I really like a lot of the other world building stuff you slipped in there as well, nice and subtle and felt like a real article in the history part...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game 2

    I received the above and after a bit of research on the named individuals found out that Monja Jaona was indeed a Madgascan seperatist and socialist, and that Tawney was an English socialist thinker. I thought that if he's being named in propoganda in (what I took to be) a former colony he's...

    You know what, what the hell. I would like in.

    Slightly disappointed they aren't Islamo-fascist or Atheo-fascist after that intro tbh. But also what @Nanwe said. Seriously impressive work.

    Well obviously. When you actually write it all out like that it's a fairly impressive list!

    Alternate World War 2

    I thought this would be the kicker. Hmm, this gives me a dark idea. Not at all the scenario that was posited, but without the western allies in the war, is it possible for the war to go on long enough that the Germans can develop a functioning atomic bomb (especially given there'd potentially...

    Alternate World War 2

    Could something be done with the resulting Barbarossa going wrong somehow, but in a way that doesn't actually cripple Germany? I'll note that I am very much not a military historian (even to the small extent I am an anything historian) so the following may well be rubbish. Presumably it would...

    Possibly related to Alex's point, but should I take his replies to mean he is incredibly often hindered by work accidents and that he doesn't feel at all represented? Or are those questions deliberately badly designed?

    Tibby's Graphics and Grab-Bag Thread.

    Are these "PM is the leader of the party that OTL got the most votes without actually winning any seats?" I can't comment on the Canada one but the UK one looks delightfully bonkers without being utterly impossible somehow.

    PODs of the Thirty Years War XII

    For me one of the interesting things highlighted here is the potential effect on Spain. If the war is finished earlier or they otherwise commit less they could presumably hang on to Portugal, at least for a while longer, and in general be a much stronger force for much longer.

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    What is most interesting/worrying is that you both start in the precise opposite way.

    Yeah that's two really cool ideas at once here. Also new (probably pretty dodgily translated) usertitle.

    Far right anti-colonialism?

    Or possibly if we have a slightly later PoD someone like Poland or Hungary? I don't know enough about inter-war central and eastern europe but neither had colonies and both had some fairly far right leanings in the period as I understand it (especially Hungary which would literally join the Axis...

    Review: Cato's Cavalry by Marc Jones

    I need to properly buy this actually, I really enjoyed it on the other place back in the day.

    Now do Alfred the Great. Also do Llewellyn the Great. Then you're insane.

    Can China stay permanently divided?

    Ok, I don't know much about Chinese history either, especially not this period, but I'll play anyway. I'm thinking of approaching this the other way - why, other than geography, is Europe not one single state? Because it was united, for a given definition of Europe, for the best part of half...
