    Our newest playground

    Welcome to the newest addition to WAB! A complete new sub-fourm dedicated to all those What-if scenarios and discussion that seem to pop up every few minutes. We will need to move and shuffle some threads around, but you are free to start right away. But please keep in mind that this is not a complete free for all. For example talking about how the ACW would have turned out with the South winning at Gettysburg is fine, but not what effect modern tanks would have had on Alexander's campaigns.

    So does that mean the MEU in Rome is out?
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    Well there will be some exceptions for the "classics". Romans vs Monguls, Knights vs Samurais and so on might not have been very..likely scenarios but are still part of WAB. The crazier your idea is, the better you have to be at selling it. We'll see how it goes and adjust the rules/abuse of our power accordingly.

    I'm running a scenario on another forum with a heavy military focus that would basically violate the "time-shift" restriction placed above. It's about shifting a modern country back to WW1. Entirely. Total timeline currently currently encompasses 65,000 words - in short descriptions. It'd be interesting to overhaul some parts of it based on feedback from WAB. Crazy enough to disqualify?

    If you did not answer Gandalf in a heartbeat, you are raising your kid wrong.
