    The Fifteenth HoS Challenge

    The Seventh Party System In the summer of 2016, the unthinkable would happen - an assassin's bullet would rob the Republicans of their... unconventional nominee. Donald Trump had died, but to those who supported him, he had become more than a martyr - he had become an icon. But they would have...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    List of Triumvirs of the American Republic A note on format - the bolded candidate is the one that has recently been elevated / re-elevated to power, with the format being Class 1 / Class 2 / Class 3. Triumvirs are elected much like senators. If a triumvir is unable to complete his term, it is...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game

    It's certainly not the best piece of media - I'm not too experienced with graphics, so I hope this was a somewhat decent start.

    Chains of Consequences: How William Jennings Bryan Caused A Jeb Bush Gaffe

    I had my hopes up for William Jennings Bryan somehow inspiring the "please clap" incident. I also now want to see an ASB timeline in which an immortal Bryan somehow manages to finally become president in 2008, after more than a century of being defeated.

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    It's already been established that a Franco-German rapproachment began in 1916, and from the way I see it, that would be very hard with the conditions that were in place in 1912. I reasoned that one way to help facilitate that rapproachment would be a solving of the Alsace-Lorraine crisis - if...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    Right now, no-one's claimed for 1917. If anyone wants to, they're welcome to, but if no-one claims by tomorrow morning EST (around 10 hours from when I post this), I'll claim 1917 and I should have it out within a day or two. ITTL, Roosevelt managed to get the Republican nomination, so he's...

    Germany Fights On, 1919

    I'd think that it's inevitable that the Germans would lose the war - I think the question is how bad they would lose the peace. Something comparable to Versailles would likely be viewed as too light - at this point, Germany may be looking at being forcibly disunified into several states again...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    When I wrote that, I tried to convey that he was received warmly by the general British public, not the government. I agree that the British government would not have been so inclined towards Martov, but I reasoned that in the minds of the British public, he was a hero, and an uninformed...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    Even so, the Duma was the closest thing to a Parliament that Russia had, and considering what happened in England when the monarch dissolved Parliament, I'd say that Martov would have at least some support.
