Zheng He in In High PlacesEdit

In an alternate where 80% of the European population was killed during the Great Black Deaths, Zheng He still made his explorations. However, while China was the richest and most powerful country of that alternate, it never filled the void of exploration and technological development that the crippled Europe left, much to the puzzlement of Crosstimers.[1]
