How You Can Contribute
Any and all original alternate histories are permitted here. You are welcome to contribute any pages you wish, whether it be a minor sketch of an alternate history or an entire story that's fully-fleshed out. Should you have suggestions or material you'd wish to add to an existing alt-history, please contact the author to discuss integration, or propose it on the discussion pages. Please make sure you understand the typical definition of Alternate History, found in the What is Alternate History page. While Future Histories are interesting, as is Science Fiction, these are not within the scope of our wiki. Note that only those timelines which are created by the author should be posted and not those which are derivative work.

While at this time we are only exhibiting pages relating to our Alternate histories, we aren't ruling out the possibilities of discussion, or description pages to help would-be alt-historians get off to a good start.

Please read and adhere to the Conventions in use in this wiki before you start contributing!

Atlas of Antarctica (Great White South)

Nations of Antarctica.

Great White South

Approximately 20,000 years ago (around the end of the last ice age), an unknown even took place in the southern hemisphere, causing it to warm up. Though it does not have much differences or change on the remainder of the world, it's biggest impact is on Antarctica, in which the continent begins to warm to the point that its large-scale icecap melts, and remain ice-free for millennia to come.

Though much warmer than in OTL, Antarctica remains a tundra not much different than Alaska, Iceland, Northern Scandinavia or Siberia. Ice continues to cover the region around the south pole, and a small-scale icecap does continue to exist on the continent. Despite the fact that Antarctica remains cold and dark, it is now habitable for humans, who arrived around 10,000 years ago. There is farming and crop growing in the most northerly areas and extensive fishing in the seas surrounding the continent.
