Regional Timeline Workshop [OOC - World Conference]

World Conference, our oh, so historically divergent region whose inhabitants cannot agree pin-point what actually happened in the past that led to their present. Well, we're here now to fix that. With oversight from the World Conference History Office, this thread (region-only) has been created for nations and other entities in World Conference to collaborate on a concrete and cohesive regional history.

History Officers

RULES
  • Only members of World Conference are permitted to participate in this collaboration as this is a regional affair.
  • Nations with already established histories and backgrounds are requested to post their history and background information when their specific point or points in history first arrive.
  • Five sentences minimum to a contribution. Specifics and technicalities are essential to decisive and pivotal events.
  • Consider the effects your contribution could have on the future.
  • Your contribution may cover any hold of time from one day to twenty years. Any contribution exceeding the twenty years limit will not be taken into consideration unless it approved from a history officer.
  • Be creative, cohesive, and sensible in your contributions. Optional, include maps, flags, pictures, and other imagery.
  • If you would like to claim coverage of a specific geographic location, please specify your intention.

NOTES
  • History remains largely unchanged until the 11th Century where the first major point of divergence occurs in the Asia Minor region.
  • Points of divergence predating the 11th Century must be approved by a history officer.

TIMELINE
Qualified and approved points will be added here. History predating the 11th Century is assumed to be unchanged unless specifically amended by a history officer.
  • The history of Samuria diverged around 880 AD when a remaining portion of the defeated Kumo-Xi tribes migrated towards the Tian Shan mountains to avoid Khitan domination. Their migrations to the west caused consecutive instability among the already established khanate of the Khara-Kanids, pushing them to the Altay region of southern Siberia where they remained during the coming centuries.

Land of Queen Mary's point of divergence occurs in the 16th Century so it looks like I'll be waiting for a while :p

Well, it does address an aspect of roleplaying if you want to look at it a certain way, but yes, it is not a direct role-play scenario. Now the question is: what would the point of posting on this forum if you didn't want to make clear your regional history in World Conference?

(Modified it to be a little less harsh :))

Nordic History Turning Point

Postby The Greater Nordic States » Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:08 pm

My turning point is technically 1089 at the Treaty of Bergen. I say technically, because though that's where my history picks up, it is also stated that the Vikings did loosely hold onto their possessions until 1089. This is because they were a little more advanced (ie. they actually did write down some of their history).

So I'm going to ask for permission (even though I'm a history officer, I still want to ask for permission) for 'this'. 'This' meaning the Vikings were able to hold on to their possessions into the late 1000's. Also, if anyone can give me something more realistic that still fits with my history, I'd welcome that. Because, even as a European history aficionado, I'm pretty confused about IRL Nordic history between 800-1100 CE.

My divergence is in 1848 with a Hungarian partisan and guerrilla war which holds up the Russian army in the Carpathian passes while allowing the Hungarian Revolutionary Army to defeat the Austrians in the west and win the 1848 revolution.

In order for early Nordic colonies to be successful, they would need to have an incentive to migrate. Colonization of Vinland would be by Greenlanders. And if you wanted to settled North American lands in the 11th Century, then I would settle Greenland earlier to have a stable population of a few thousand to ten thousand. I don't see incentive to settle new lands until the mini Ice Age during the later Middle Ages that made Greenland less hospitable. That could possibly be the incentive needed, but I am not sure how the potential Vinland colonies would last for until the British and French came along.
