Please do not attempt to edit the map on your own. Due to the volatility of the project and community, this map may or may not accurately reflect the true borders and/or countries recognized in the current Vandeverse canon. Consult a Vandverse member for details.

Major Differences[edit]

  • 1200-1500s - The Oasisamerica region of North America undergoes a period of urbanization and advancement, leading to the creation of several nation states, such as the Pueblo Empire.
  • 1500s-1600s - The French take a more vested interest in colonization, leading to a more heavily populated series of colonies in North America, which later become multiple French-speaking nations.
  • 1700s - The Constitution Convention fails in the fledgeling United States, leading to the formerly British colonies in the eastern seaboard splitting into several nations.
  • 1800s - South Africa (and much of Africa) is colonized differently, including the survival of many Boer Republics.
  • 2000s - Nuclear Armageddon occurs, leading to a post-apocalyptic future.

Contests[edit]

The Vandverse conworld will periodically hold contests to encourage the creation of pages on a certain topic. Members of the conworld are encouraged to participate in these friendly competitions.
