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
Fidem Pacis
East-Hem 610ad (OTL)

The world of AD 610, shortly before the POD of this timeline.

World map (Fidem Pacis)

The world as it is today

The premise of this althist is based upon the legend that in the year 628 AD the Prophet Muhammad sent envoys to the emperors of Rome and Persia, inviting them to convert to Islam. In the OTL, even if the legend is true the envoys were ignored. In this timeline, the Roman Emperor, Heraclius, was curious enough to personally investigate the new religion, ultimately leading to his own conversion and to the Arab conquest of the Middle East being averted.
