List of ATL and OTL equivalents in Altverse II

From Constructed Worlds
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of ATL and OTL equivalents in use on Altverse II. In the context of the project, equivalents, also known as analogues, are entities from Altverse II which are comparable to existing entities in the real world. Analogues are entities which serve a similar function, purpose, or role as one that exists in the real world. As an alternate history project, it is highly implausible for the timeline to have the same entities such as companies or media emerging past the point of divergence. However, for both simplicity and familiarity, it is sometimes necessary for the timeline to have certain entities to exist to create a timeline and world that is similar, but not the same as our world such as the Internet.
