I'm vacationing in Barcelona for a few days, so I have decided to post a few Spanish scenario ideas.

Homage to Catalonia - The Republicans win the Spanish Civil War...and the Republic promptly fractures. Stalinist, Trotskyist, socialist, anarchist and democratic states populate the Iberian peninsula, bickering among themselves as the Cold War goes on.

The Not-So-Splendid Little War - God (or Cthulhu) himself helps Spain in the Spanish-American War. A freak storm sinks America's Caribbean fleet, with yellow fever killing what forces do land in Cuba. Germany declares war on the US and prevents Dewey from reaching Manila Bay. The entire thing is a farce for the US, and gives Spain enough confidence and indebtedness to Germany to sign some very friendly treaties with Berlin. Spain retains the Caribbean and sells the Philippines to Germany.

Forget the Maine - The USS Maine incident never happens, and neither does the Spanish-American War. The Philippines is eventually sold to Japan after the Hispano-Japanese War, while the US buys Cuba. A richer Spain manages to avoid some of the trouble of the 20th century as a result.

[No name yet] - Spain is victorious over the Dutch in the Eighty Years' War. Dutch Protestants move to England and Cape Colony as the Spanish reinstitute Catholicism with a vengeance. Meanwhile, European power politics continues, especially as religious tensions brew in the Holy Roman Empire.

Hey man, sorry to bother you again but I was wondering if you could do me a huge favour.  That NI map I put up could you post it to the Map Thread on my behalf?  I know I'm not exactly welcome over on ah.com anymore but I'm really happy with this one and I figured you guys would have some appreciation for it.

Here's the imgur link anyway, i.imgur.com/cDno1uD.png

Cheers and ta-ra!

Fucking CalBear has had it in for me, he was the one who banned me in the first place, and I'm sure about 90% of my warning/kickings came from him.  You can appeal to Ian to get the spot removed though.  Anyway it's just a map and all maps are political, the fact it's connected to current events shouldn't effect your standing.  Hell they should encourage it.

I am very sorry that you got a warning though, I didn't think anyone would find it offensive... though my theory on the pro-Unionist bias on AH.com still stands.  If you have to remove the map then that's completely fine with me.

Again I am really sorry man, I doubly owe you for this.

I'm just going to let the matter drop. I don't want to get tied up in this sort of thing.

Hello, I hope you are well? As always, you are a good person to talk to and I consider you a good friend. Hope you are doing okay. I have a question to ask and a little tidbit of info/idea?

Will you be doing any Halloween-related maps this year? I am unsure what possible things you could use as inspiration, but there's probably a few things. I'd like to see a whole scenario centered around Gravity Falls (which is the best show on Disney right now with Phineas and Ferb a close second.)

As for the tidbit, I know that Columbia is a name for America because of Christopher Columbus. However, since Leif Erikson showed up first, I say we use a name after him. Eriksonia.

I give you permission to use the name XDDD

I'm doing well. Thanks for asking!

I don't know if I'll be doing a Halloween map in particular this year, but my hundredth scenario is coming up. For that, I'll be doing a crossover of my main three timelines on AH.com, and since they're fairly grimdark you could say that counts as Halloween. 

I haven't seen Gravity Falls, and to be honest I hadn't even heard of it until you mentioned it. What's the premise?

Eriksonia would only really make sense in a world which acknowledges his discovery prior to Columbus, though a later renaming may work. I'll save it for use in pre-1492 scenarios.

Glad you're doing well!

Yeah. I first heard of it in a Spongebob episode (Bubble Buddy to be exact. He wakes up in viking apparel and announces its Leif Erikson Day.) I imagine that Eriksonia would be more inspired by Scandanavia (possibly specficially Finland).

As for Gravity Falls:

"For their summer vacation, 12-year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are dropped off from their home in Piedmont, California to the fictitious town of Gravity Falls, Oregon to live with their Great Uncle Stan (often shortened to Grunkle Stan). Things are not what they seem in this small town, and with the help of a mysterious journal Dipper finds in the forest they realize that their everyday lifestyle has changed. With appearances from Wendy, Dipper's crush; Soos, friend of Dipper and Mabel and handyman to Grunkle Stan; plus an assortment of other characters, Dipper and Mabel always have an intriguing day to look forward to.["

This is one of the best shows ever, like Twin Peaks with the humor of the Simpsons/Regular Show. After a year of rest, Season 2 is here and even darker than Season 1. Beyond the show, the characters and so on, there are ciphers and references to all sorts of cryptoids, legends and monsters. There are Atbash, Caesar and Numerical Ciphers with Vignere appeared in the new season. So with references to alchemy, mythology, monsters and so on, it's a fun show.

Also, congrats on your 100th scenario!!!

You probably should have saved Utopia for that one XDDD.

Though your threeway crossover of horror sounds funsies too.

I'll have to decline on Gravity Falls. I don't have time to watch all of those episodes, and just basing my knowledge off wikis wouldn't do the show justice.
