Hello, Alternative Historians. I am CrimsonAssassin. As you would guess (or maybe didn't), I made my username on a video game involving sniping and the name stuck! I am a proud and enthusiastic participant in this community, especially in the Map Game community. I have created several map games myself, including the Battle for Earth games, which have multiple installments thus far.
I am very interested in history in general, though my main focuses are Roman, Medieval, and American history. I also enjoy early human history. As one would guess, most of my ATLs are set in these eras. I like my timelines to follow a PoD that hasn't been done many times, if at all. It's cool learning about obscure things that would have changed the world forever. For example, did you know that Irene of Athens and Charlemagne almost got married, which would have combined the Frankish and Byzantine Empires? My main ATL, Magnam Europae is set in a universe where this happens. Due to my love of history, I aspire to be a history teacher.
Despite what the top two paragraphs say, I have a life. I'm an eighteen year old living in North Carolina. I enjoy Star Wars, zombies, and, of course, history. Science fiction is one of my favorite genres. In my spare time, I play video games, write, and read about history. I am a fan of the Green Bay Packers (I want to like the Carolina Panthers, but I just can't) and the Carolina Hurricanes. I don't give a rat's ass about basketball.
Huh. I guess I don't have a life.
While I do more than my fair share of editing on map games, I have worked on various timelines and contributed to a few major TLs that aren't my own.

Need to Contact Me?Edit
It occurs to me that people might want to communicate with me. I have no idea why and I kind of feel sorry for them, but they have their reasons. I've got a Skype profile that is usually active on the weekends and/or late at night. Just send a request to my Skype at oldspice1995. Please leave a message regarding your request to my talk page (just a head's-up message so I know who sent the message. Don't want random anons skyping me).
