    Default Midgard

    I haven't done an alternate history map in a loooooong time, so here's one.

    This is Europe from the GURPS/Alternate Earths 2 world of Midgard, where Vikings conquered Constantinople in the 9th century and used all the loot (and Greek Fire) to crush the Christian nations and establish their own empires, much as the Germanic tribes did to the Romans a few centuries earlier.

    (GURPS, Alternate Earths 2, and the world of Midgard were created by Kenneth Hite, Craig Neumeier, and Michael Schiffer and are property of Steve Jackson Games. The text in the title box is lifted directly from the intro in the game book.)

    That looks so legit. I dig it.

    Great map, but I kind of have to like it, a map where the Vikings have taken over Europe

    What? Oh, you weren't trying to get my attention? Sorry, then.

    A very nice and clear rendition of Mercator's style. I like it!

    I like how Trebizond manages to stick around as the last Byzantine rump state even in this timeline.

    Beautiful map as always, Diamond.

    Gorgeous work, and I love the sense of history that's apparent in looking at the names and borders!
