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!

This Month's Featured Althist

This timeline by Max Sinister starts with the death of Genghis Khan in 1200 (thus preventing the Mongol conquest of Russia, China and Persia) and goes until the year 1993. History changes a lot compared to OTL, although some patterns seem to reappear.

The complete timeline (including stories) is over 800 kB long, and has more than 350 pages on this wiki, of which more than 100 are about the nations alone.

Since it does not only cover a very long time, but is also very detailed (even if a bit Europe-centric), it is recommended that you start reading with:

  • The abridged TL (only the most interesting events)
  • The summary (general development of the world regions in every century)
  • Or you read the whole TL in (geographical / temporal) blocks.
