Cross the Time Streams is a simple ISOT Map Game, and most likely the first on the Althistory wiki.

ATTENTION!: The game has been closed due to user incompetency and inactivity.


Long ago, an event occurred, effecting many diverse and different nations, and people across the multiverses. Many do not understand why this event occurred, and many will probably never know to be honest. All that matters now, is these nations get used to their neighbors, because they are stuck with these strange, but somewhat familiar neighbors of theirs. All teleported to a virgin Earth, identical to the one they know and call home. Unaffected by man's interference, with resources restored and bountiful. Animals long since extinct now alive and roaming. How will these great nations and people survive this new, almost alien world? Only time will tell.


  • 1. LightningLynx89 is the overseer of this world, and will try to balance and keep this world in order to the best of his abilities and powers.
  • 2. Only 1 "large" ISOT, 2 "medium" ISOT, or 3 "small" ISOTs. Be courteous of what you bring in, and be fair to your fellow member wanting to ISOT.
  • 3. After we finish teleporting in these nations and people, we will begin writing about the years events.
  • 4. ISOT anything from alternate history. Keep them realistic, and 'Earthly'. No God Emperor, Cthulhu, no technological nations over 2016, keep them within in history. And no Video Game, Comic, Movie, or TV ISOTs either. (If this game succeeds and is seen positively we will expand).
  • 5. All turns are first come first serve. As soon as you finish your turn, you can reclaim another.
  • 6. All turns last twenty-four hours, once the time is up your claim is bumped down.
  • 7. Have fun, and enjoy what you bring in. You can ISOT one small nation if that's all you want, and if that is all you have passion for.
  • 8. I will have first claim.
  • 9. If you miss out on three cycles you will be banned and unable to post in the game any further, due to being deemed incompetent and flaky.

  • Brief history: The nation of Deseret was one of the United States' blunder. The small nation was once a proposed state for the United States, but unfortunately the proposals and compromises were unsuccessful and seen as insulting to those whom lived in the region. United under a common cause, and very similar the Mormon people of Deseret declared their independence from the United States. While not seen as official by the United States, they waited to see how long Deseret would last on its own. When the American Civil War around, interest in reuniting Deseret fell apart very quickly. And with the nation of Deseret expanding and their years separated from the United States. They formed their own identity and politics. During and after the Civil War, many Americans from the North and South fled westward to avoid the fighting and many eventually ended up permanently settling in Deseret. Many even converting to Mormonism. Now the country of Deseret is a self-sufficient nation. Bordered by both Mexico, whom they are actually close friends with, and surrounded on all sides by the United States. But now, those citizens are wondering why Colorado, Idaho, California, and Oregon look a lot more... desert like...

Hawaii was briefly occupied by the British during the Paulet Affair in 1843. The French raided Honolulu six years later in 1849. The greatest test of all for Hawaii was when it successfully defeated a coup d'etat with the goal of overthrowing the Hawaiian monarchy, largely at the hands of Americans, on January 17, 1893. It is believed that if the Americans succeeded, Hawaii would have been annexed by the United States. However, since it survived the coup, Hawaii remained independent; and so the Hawaiian islands remained Hawai'i Pono'i, Hawaiʻi's Own.
