    Hi everybody! Red Ranger here. So, I finally decided to create a forum game.
    This game is a bit interesting, I think.
    So the way it works is like this (it's very simple!):
    Each Friday (EST), once a week, I post a "what if..." statement, which asks what would happen if... (i.e. if the Nazis won WW2). I would then post what I think would happen.
    During the rest of the week, you guys post responses as to what you think would happen.

    Also, if you don't know about the historical topic mentioned, look it up! Google will save you from lots of embarrassment.

    What if... ~Week 1

    What if... the Soviet Union still existed?

    My theory: If the Soviet Union still existed, we might actually have a more peaceful world. Putin would most likely become the next President of the USSR. The 9/11 attack would actually happen in Moscow, not New York, because Russia invaded Afghanistan. China would serve as a peacekeeper between the US and Russia, due to its relying on Russia for resources and on the US for money.

    I think that Vault-Tec would be born, and they would try to revive Stalin so he can nuke people, just so they can play tricks on people over 200 years.

    Hell.
    I think people *cough* Retards *cough* would all be killed in a civil war. Well and all humans would be dead from WW3, which would happen because of a Youtuber posting a vid called: "Death to the soviet union!" where a american shoots a Russian for no reason besides... Well you get my gist. Russia finds out the Americans had that done, they launch a nuke, Merica nukes them back. And Europe engages them. UK with Machine-guns, and some other country with air support. Then countries would hire assassin's... Etc.

    I think it's impossible to predict.

    Week #2: What would happen if the Confederate States of America still existed?

    First of, you can forget about black rights if that were to happen.

    I have another question.

    Say we never discovered gunpowder or it never existed in the first place, how would warfare be today? What types of weapons would people be carrying? How would life be like in general?

    Well...
    basically, my viewpoint on that is that if you took away guns, we would be back in medieval times already.
    And we would have the old tactics of cavalry and bows and arrows and superheated vegetable oil as weapons...

    You didn't exactly understand the question. I said what if GUNPOWDER never existed, not anything else. We would still be living in our modern society, just without gunpowder. Now that you understand, how do you think warfare would be like today?

    Hmm, medieval age weapons would be in more practical use, and in further tech, nanobots and chemicals would result in micro warfare.

    Micro warfare would be extremely expensive and difficult to maintain, kinda like Biological warfare. But imagine a modern tank with heavy siege crossbows instead of a large cannon.
