This Troll Lord will be Starting His Doctorate Soon!

Post by Celticgamer »

Believe it or not, my Masters in Arthurian Studies from the University of Wales Lampeter isn't enough, not for my academic career anyway, so I am about to embark on my last stretch of schooling. I have applied for my MPhil/PhD in Celtic Studies with Y Drindod Dewi Sant (Trinity Saint David) university, a fusion of Swansea, Carmarthen and Lampeter in South Wales. If all goes well and my proposal is accepted, on 'The Celtic Otherworld' (the basis for my Codex Celtarum), then I begin in October, and have four years to finish a massive study. Imagine the Codex Celtarum as an academic study that will be over 480 pages thick, that is what I will write.

This won't halt my writing schedule for Troll Lords so don't panic - I write and design swiftly remember! I will just emerge out it of MORE empowered than before and inspired to produce even better materials for gaming by far.

Now...on with gaming as before!

Excellent news. Will be praying you get in.

Know you have a robust schedule, but do you think you'll ever do a Codex Celtarum II? Is there enough material for it?

I wish you all the best!
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

Fantastic. Education is a wonderful thing. In an area that overlaps with your gaming, even better!
