    Prequel Problems: Rogue One

    It does, but I'm not too familiar with it (someone has since Questionably Legally uploaded it to Youtube, so I'm thinking of listening to it) so thanks for the information. I only know about it because it was quoted a lot in the earliest-published Star Wars encyclopedias (the ones that still...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    Alright, well (and this is from the perspective of someone who only saw it in passing), Tarrantry started out as the battleship rivet counters wanting to come up with new WW2 battles or fleets or something. Somehow this snowballed into inventing an entire new country, a third British Isle named...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    Also, random question that occurred to me yesterday: how much name recognition does Tarrantry have with AH fans nowadays? I was always only barely aware of it myself, but I remember it being practically front and centre on the old AH.com frontpage back in 2005. This will be relevant to...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    There has to be a joke in here about the moon landing somewhere.

    In the British greatest-crossover-in-history equivalent, an after-credits scene is devoted to Alec Trevelyan and the Fourth Doctor hitting it off over shared died-by-falling-off-a-giant-satellite-dish backstories.

    WI: Portuguese Fleet Capsizes, 1808

    Although apparently the Portuguese don't call him Henry the Navigator, which is one of the best real-life "In China, amazingly, no-one actually eats Chinese food" facts.

    The Tree that Exploits Its Own Surplus Value

    Was @SpanishSpy aware of the old AH.com 'private trees on public land' never-ending argument by that one nutso troll, or is this a total coincidence?

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    Does seem like the sort of thing that could actually happen. I've thought the same thing but with two shades of purple (as a way of representing that they both use red, white and blue, as some people do with the SDP here).

    Prequel Problems: Michael Stackpole, The Continuity Strikes Back

    Thanks for that last titbit of information, that's interesting. As I said at the start of this article, I realise with the benefit of wider experience now that the astonishing thing was that the SW EU wasn't far more all-over-the-place in terms of tone, worldbuilding and continuity, considering...

    Nanwe's Maps and Graphics Thread

    Fascinating, thanks. It is striking that given all the vagaries of the Turno Pacifico at the time, that arrangement for an upper house seems quite reasonable on paper and could be proposed today (other than the suffrage requirements for the 147).

    Nanwe's Maps and Graphics Thread

    Interesting, thanks. They used that in some constituencies in the 1867-1885 voting system in the UK, I don't know if that's a coincidence or not as I know Spain in this era did model some aspects of its politics on the UK.

    Nanwe's Maps and Graphics Thread

    Fantastic work. What was the electoral system used in the multi-member seats, incidentally?
