In some long lost, distant corner of time and space, or some parallel timeline to the world of fantasy, Naggaroth looks a bit different. The Dark Elves aren't as dominant and don't have as much complete control over the continent. Instead what happens is more of a Lustria situation, where colonists from the Old World make landfall and begin establishing settlements and taking control over various territories of their own in the pine forests and western plains and deserts of the continent. What's more they encounter already existent tribes of humans who had settled there in ancient history and have developed their own culture and share a deep connection with the land. Strange and mysterious creatures dwell throughout the untamed forests of this great frontier, old spirits are communed with by shamans and animal-like shapeshifters dwell the land, covens of witchcraft pop up in the northeast and mountain ranges much to the chagrin of the more puritanical and devout settlers, folk heroes emerge from the tall tales of men giant in deed and stature who tame the savage wilderness, rangers, sheriffs, and marshals ride out on the western cattle plains and war with the native tribesmen all while hearing strange and peculiar tales of the undead rising among the dusty landscape, countryfolk settle and feud in the hills of the central mountains, great cries of revolution from their distant homeland swell, and through it all rings a spirit of a new age...
There would be so much to work with for something like this lol. The stories of the northern New World's past is as diverse as they come.

Just so much well known history and fantasy myths that one could Warhammerize into the setting and satire in awesome ways.
Even if it's something that Games Workshop never really did with their world, I for one really enjoy trying to come up with new ideas for seeing what it'd be like for something like this to happen and fit in with the rest of the world's story. It began when I was researching their Legends of the Old West historical battles game and I've kinda been hooked since haha.
What would you think about an idea like this? If you could write your own lore about how you'd create a Warhammer version of North American history, it's creatures, inhabitants, and it's impact on the story what would your vision look like?
