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
North America (Toyotomi)

Toyotomi Japan

The death of Yi Sun-sin sometime prior to Toyotomi Fideyoshi's invasion of Korea leads to Japanese victory. This, in turn, promotes an expansionist, rather than isolationist, Japan. Under the leadership of the Toyotomi family, holding the court titles of Quampaku and Sexxô, the Japanese compete with the great European powers for colonies.

Japan and her former colonies form a large, if loose, union covering large areas of the world. The growth of the Empire began as they expanded Northward to Siberia and then westward until colliding with the Russians, and across the Bering Straits into Aresuka, and down the Pacific coast. They also expanded into Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and into Australia (Xinnoranda).

Today, most Japanese colonies retain at least a nominal connection to Japan proper.

In the Americas, Christian and Buddhist missionaries came into frequent contact, sometimes resulting in violence, but eventually the two religions came to co-exist relatively peacefully. Japan's involvement in the world meant that Christianity was moderately successful in Japan, though still a minority religion, while Buddhist missionaries made their way into Europe.
