Though it shares the book's point of divergence - a meteor shower bombarding the Northern Hemisphere in 1878 - the differences between the two start building up almost immediately. One particular difference is the survival of the United States of America and certain parts of Europe.

!!Historical characters who appear or are referenced in the timeline:

!!Provides examples of:

* AdaptationExpansion
* AfterTheEnd
* AlternateHistory
* ApocalypseHow: A definite Class 1
* BalkaniseMe: The Ottoman Empire, China (for a while), Russia, and (naturally) the Balkans themselves
* TheBritishEmpire: Called the Angrezi Raj, much like the book.
* ColonyDrop: The Fall
* {{Eagleland}}: Unlike the book, the United States is very much alive.
* ExternalRetcon: Quite a few major differences between the book and this timeline.
* HumansAreBastards: Hey, whoever said a post-Apocalyptic scenario would be ''nice''?
* IAmAHumanitarian: Averted. [[spoiler: Anyone with a decent knowledge of biology will tell you that cannibalism is ''not'' a sustainable feeding habit.]]
* InferredHolocaust: There are several references to "ethnic liquidation", though this timeline has no separate term for ethnic cleansing and genocide- make of that what you will...
* IstanbulNotConstantinople: Averted - the city is still called Constantinople.
* PragmaticAdaptation: The author's main intention was plausibility rather than storytelling.
* RightfulKingReturns: In China, though it actually requires a change of dynasty.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Absolute monarchy is rather common in this timeline.
* SlidingScaleOfRealisticVersusFantastic: Compared to its source material, this timeline is far closer to the realistic end of the scale.
* TakeThat: A recent post contains a not-so-subtle refutation of the obligatory cannibal cultures of the book.
* UnreliableNarrator: Many of the references "quoted" in the timeline are somewhat biased one way or another.
* WarriorPrince: Ali ibn Hussein
* WellIntentionedExtremist: There are quite a few of these scattered around. YMMV on just how [[MoralEventHorizon well intentioned]] they were, though.
