Wazzup guys, I wanna do a mapgame. You don't know what that is? No problem! A mapgame is basicallly you and a few other people taking turns in adding countries to an alternate history map. If you want it more detailed, please visit this (sadly rather inactive) group:
Then you should understand.
So far these people have confirmed they want to take part:
I'm still waiting for these people to confirm their membership:
Here are the POD's I'd suggest:
- Antiochos III of the Seleucide Empire defeats the Maccabees and thus wipes out the Jewish religion long before the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The consequence would be that neither Christianity nor Islam would ever come to existence. The setting of this mapgame would be centuries after the POD, in the 15th century.
- Cesare Borgia, son of the infamous Pope Alexander VI, instead of failing completely after his fathers death, creates a Papal empire in Italy, but catholicism is severely weakened in the progress (thanks for inspiration to this scenario to ). We'd make the setting of this mapgame only few decades after the POD.
- Italy stays a monarchy after WWII (suggested by ). I'd say the setting of the map should be modern day.
You can suggest other POD's in the description.
Of course as the leader of the mapgame, I'd add the first nation. For POD No 1 it would be a surviving Seleucid Empire, for POD No 2 it would be the Papal Empire.
When we have a few more POD's, one of us who is a Premium member could make a poll over which one we should use.
Thanks for the attention and sorry to all my watchers who aren't interested in this kind of game.
edit: Now that two of the people I "tagged" declined, and the rest confirmed, I think we can enter the next phase. We have three possible PODs (although I think we should make the second one a seperate mapgame, with a map of only Europe as a base). Now we need one of us, who is a premium member, to set up a poll. Who volunteers?
edit2: Here's a link to the poll about the POD, thanks .
