I really cannot believe I have to keep repeating this because people apparently know nothing about the KOTOR IP.

A "Knights of the Old Republic" game cannot be developed by any company other than Bioware without revoking the KOTOR IP from Bioware.

#StarWars #kotor #SWTOR
"Knights of the Old Republic" is its own IP that was transferred from Bioware to Obsidian in 2004 and then from Obsidian back to Bioware in 2006/2007 to start development of SWTOR. Bioware Austin, which is still making "The Old Republic" content, is still the holder of that IP.
These rumors are wrong, and you can prove it solely for that reason. Unless Lucasfilm shuts down SWTOR (which has not happened and is not expected to happen for at least 2 more years) and revokes the KOTOR IP, the only company that can make a KOTOR game is Bioware.
@ScoutTheTrooper @EckhartsLadder I hope this information is useful to you both.

I've heard rumors of some sort of massive discourse over at the AIA conference about completely separating the academic community from Roman Reenactment due to "widespread white supremacist motivations" for reenactment.

I want to talk about this. (1/?)
I'm going to tag @eranudturan in this from the start because I want his opinion as both a PoC and a non-European reenactor, but I've been thinking about this all day and have some thoughts I want to express and would like to hear feedback on. (2/?)
Reenactment as a whole very much has imperialist roots. The earliest reenactments basically started as 18th century recreations of battles and tourneys, often associated with festivals hosted by lords. Renaissance festivals also have athe same roots in their origins. (3/?)

Alright, I just finished "Light of the Jedi" by Charles Soule, and I have some thoughts on it, both as a scientist, historian, and Star Wars fan. I'm mostly coming at this from an Old Republic fan viewpoint.

The first thing I want to look at is the tone, because anything else is really nitpicky and the fundamental themes of the story are really the main basis for comparison. So I'm looking at this from a few angles, the big one being it claiming to be a "Star Wars Arthurian Romance."
For those that know anything about the actual Arthurian Romances, they fundamentally focus on diverging from Arthur as the main character, which one can conceptually argue this book does, diverging from the Skywalkers as a main character and focusing on other Jedi.

This one was also one I advised on. The only real inaccuracy, in this piece is the decoration on the tunic (which I recommended they either decorate the sleeves and tighten the cuffs or remove all decoration.) Every other piece here is datable to the 5th century.
The sword fittings are all from Nydam 1d, and although hourglass hilts (Behmer Type-V) are primarily a North/Baltic sea phenomenon, we have plenty of evidence for extensive recruitment from this region under Aetius.
The strap end is an Amphora-type, which are pretty common in the 4th-5th centuries. Bohme has a specific typology breaking them down, with the one here being based on an example from Lauriacum.

Hello everyone and welcome to this part 2 of "what is wrong with this image."

For context, here is part 1, which will be important to the rest of this:

Threadreader for those who want it:

We're gonna start with where we left off with what @mikeaztec28 mentioned: should Aetius even be in standard military attire?

This is the Diptych of Flavius Constantius Felix, 428 AD. Felix held the same title as Aetius: Magister Utriusque Militae, until he was executed. Image
Felix's dress is a lot different in this image from Aetius' on the Monza Cathedral Diptych. It's bureaucratic in form, consisting of a Stikharion (a Delmatikion with two vertical clavii) over a Kamision with a consular Trabea worn over it. Image

So first of all, congrats to Dr. Wijnendaele on his paper. But that's not why I'm retweeting this.

I'm retweeting this because art like this is why reenactors are important. Because things like reconstructing clothing is actually important but almost nobody pays attention to it.
And this piece is a great example of how lack of research affects pop culture depictions (e.g. Hollywood) which then in turn colors the knowledge and perceptions of artists, which then goes back and affects the ones doing historical pieces.
So let's take the deep dive: What is wrong with this image?

First for context, this is an image of the assassination of Aetius in 454 AD. the three figures are Aetius, the eunuch Heraclius, and Valentinian III.

I guess we'll work through the figures left to right.
