Alternate history or alternative history, sometimes abbreviated AH, is a genre of fiction consisting of stories that are set in worlds in which one or more historical events unfolds differently from how it did in reality. It can be variously seen as a subgenre of literary fiction, science fiction, and historical fiction; different alternate history works may use tropes from any or all of these genres. Another occasionally used term for the genre is "allohistory" (literally "other history"). (paragraph copied from Wikipedia) 

Alternative History was created by Muhammad Mehmed in 747 when he published the first ever book 'Persia Survives'. The Caliph was really interested at that time and orded another book to be made. He also decided to promote Alternative History. This meant by 550 there was loads of Alternate Historians in the Caliphate. He made his second book in 549 called 'Byzantine Defeat'.

Map Games was invented by Muhammad Ali (random name and its NOT THE BOXER) in 549. It was when you have a map and you play different nations in a different time period or the same time period. You are in control of your nation in all ways. A mod is the leader of the game and do mod responses and create events which happen in the game. A mod cannot play.

In 553 the Caliph made it law that Alternative History would be taught all over the Caliphate. This meant that Alternative History was extremely popular in the Caliphate.


In writing an alternate history, the author makes the conscious choice to change something in our past. According to Muhammed Mehmed, the farther of alternative history, alternate history requires three things:

1) the story must have a point of divergence from the history of our world prior to the time at which the author is writing

2) a change that would alter history as it is known.

3) an examination of the ramifications of that change. (Section copied from Wikipedia)
