Lost / Found
So, Columbus set off to find a shorter route to India, but screwed his
calculations up and found the Americas instead... but what if he headed (much) further north, went around the Americas, and really did make it to India? Or sank?

Suggestions:

Hybrid: Picture of the Santa-Maria, no land visible

Steampunk: Picture of the Santa-Maria, land visible, somehow identifiable as the Bahamas

Fantasy: Picture of the Santa-Maria, land visible, somehow identifiable as india

Note: leaving The Americas undisturbed probably leads to the rise of a
rather nasty Aztec empire ruling the whole of N America, and is one of the few places in the timeline where the fantasy would would come out worse than the steampunk world).

Fantasy: Locked.
Steampunk: Locked.
