Post Murti Schofield’s TRAOD Original Notes - Scans

So, the time has come. Here you have, for all the TRAOD fans and the TR fans interested in TRAOD lore, the last bundle of notes by TRAOD storywriter Murti Schofield from a larger one that was destroyed.

After attending the orchestra live recording session of The Dark Angel Symphony last 26th July, Ash was kind to let me take them home. I pledged for these notes in The Dark Angel Kickstarter and I promised myself I’d share with the fandom every detail that these pages might contain. And so, I’ve scanned and prepared myself all the 33 pages that compound this last bundle.

What do the notes contain? TRAOD lore and development ideas, beta content that made it - or not - to the final version of the game, concept art, drawings and details. There’s not an specific order in which these notes can be consulted, but I’ve scanned them in the strict order in which I’ve encountered them, and by this way they are numbered file by file.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading and consulting these notes, because they are incredibly rich and meaningful not only in the content but also in the aesthetics, showing the talent and creativity that Murti put into building this amazing story.

I do hope, also, that these notes, which contain new and unknown details, might inspire artists and writers to create new TRAOD fanart and fanfiction, so that we keep alive, as we’ve done all these years, this wonderful story that deserved so much better.

You can watch the notes HERE: http://s56.photobucket.com/user/Puta...ofield%20Notes

Enjoy!

This is incredible! I haven't had time to look through all of it yet but thank you so much for posting these ! I'm glad you got them and not someone who would've kept them under wraps.

Thanks so much, this is great stuff, even if I can't read or make sense of it. XD It would be great if someone could digitise and categorise all of it.

If you're familiar with the digital notes that were released a while ago by Elio, and the other content Ash has published concerning TRAOD development in his website, all of them provided by Murti Schofield, it's easier to go through these notes. Most of the lore displayed here made it to the game.
