Writing challenge – What if WE were the ones discovered?


Oooooh, scary.

I must admit that I haven’t looked very hard but this is something that has been tickling the back of my brain for a while. As I’ve said in previous posts, my brain doesn’t stop coming up with ideas for stories, games and what ifs?

What if WE were the ones to be discovered in 1492? What if the Aztecs, Mayans, Incas or any of the other American Indian tribes came across the atlantic and discovered us?

What if they were the ones with gunpowder, good armour and we were the ones still using bronze or stone-age weaponry? How would this affect the development of the world as we know it? First off they land on Eire. Then, using that as a staging post they discover Wales, England and Scotland. Finally they discover Europe.

Oooooooh! How about the Roman Empire was still ruling and, because of this and some other reasons I’m sure you’ll be able to make up, they have stayed at that level of technology ever since?

Get writing and, when you’ve finished, I’d love to see your story!
