Nothing states that someone worse would have come into power, and the same goes for the opposite. In the case of something like this, I would just let him live. I was raised with the belief that no matter how good or how bad, every event happens for a reason, some within our grasp, and some not.
Now, if I knew the outcome of this action, then it would depend on whichever action would ultimately be better for Germany and the world.
Actually, I'd just question why the watch wasn't set to a day when it was Baby-to-be-Kaiser Wilhelm II as opposed to Baby Hitler, since World War I set the scene for Germany's economic despair during the 20's and 30's, which is a very possible reason for Hitler's rise to power. Or perhaps I'd have Wilson's points go through for the Treaty of Versailles. There's a lot of places where this can be changed, so I'm really confused.
Who started WWI is debatable, since it's the result of the chain of the Alliance B.S. that goes around Europe prior to it, and a bunch of other tensions between these countries. Wilhelm was also far more aggressive that Bismarck was, which wouldn't lead to anything good in the Alliance deal that was going around Europe. He was also the one who sanctioned that Austria go after the Black Hand, if I am right. The Schlieffen Plan, in order to end the war as quickly as possible, was sanctioned by him and very possibly is one of the reasons behind Germany's defeats. I can go further in depth, but those are some of the big ones.Irish Wolf wrote:Why would you off Kaiser Wilhelm II? He didn't start the first World War, Gavrilo Princip, the Serb that assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria did. The Triple Alliance (the German Empire, Austria-Hungry and the Kingdom of Italy) was formed in 1882, expanding the Duel Alliance (the German Empire and Austria-Hungry) that was formed in 1879. Germany was required to join the war when the Triple Entente Powers sided with Serbia. The Treaty if Versailles however, that is a major cause of Germany's economic despair.

Honesty and transparency were valued, new people were incorporated into the community rather than judged based on what style of writing they preferred, and despite the youthfulness and zeal of the population there prevailed a reasonable degree of common sense.
RolePlayGateway is a site built by a couple roleplayers who wanted to give a little something back to the roleplay community. The site has no intention of earning any profit, and is paid for out of their own pockets.
