A&S Championship and Display 2022: Lord Nicol mac Donnachaidh

For this paper, I revisited a text written about three years ago using a method I developed for modifying period documents. Starting with the same sources, I rewrote the scroll, and used the two texts to make some determinations about myself as an artist and the method. The questions I tried to answer were:
What did I do differently, and why do I think that that happened?
What did I do the same, and why?
Are there aesthetic differences in the way the language flows, quotations are used, or other characteristics that I prefer?
This paper will cover the process of the construction of this second text and the comparative analysis between the two works.

  1. Nice research and excellent application of a historical example into our game. I may leverage this at some point. 🙂

    1. It was incredibly fun. I still haven’t figured out quite how to encapsulate the weirdness when I looked at the old text compared to the new. Thankfully I found stuff to talk about, that’s always the risk when you do something like this!

  2. I love that this entry covers an uncommon A&S topic and that you sought to answer specific questions to further your research.

    1. It is a personal goal of mine to make the study and use of texts and words infinitely more prominent. Thanks for checking it out!
