Good idea. A 'sandbox' for alt history concepts  :)

Caveat ----- as long as we don't get caught up in the minutia of Geek like those on Alt.History tend to do.  Too many histories tend to follow minor variations instead of being NEW ideas & scenarios.

Maybe contributors could ask for particular types (or levels) or response? "Am I missing something" would be asking for a whif reality check. "Let 'er rip" is asking for live fire to fully test out a concept.

I once visited that forum and some guy had written a Whiff scenario based around his favourite wrestler winning in WWE!

It was a case of slowly walk out to the car and don't make any sudden moves:

I still have the Tomania and Thriftiland threads in the main I&I board.  Can you move those to Scenarios, too?

Cheers,
