The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emma Orczy (1865 - 1947).


Widely considered to be the third chronological book in the Scarlet Pimpernel series, this collection of 11 short stories chronicles the adventures of Sir. Percy Blakeney and his loyal league as they snatch helpless victims from the clutches of guillotine and assist unlucky French citizens. ( Lydia Rebehn)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5805
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:

I was unable to enter a copyright date for the volume, as Project Gutenberg does not (that I could find) list the specifics of the volume that the text was taken from.

Hi! Do you need a DPL? My two solo readers are finishing up, and I'll need a new "morning-prooflistening" project, so I'd love to do PL for you.

Hello again Lynette!
I do need a DPL. If you’d be willing to, that would be fantastic and much appreciated.
Thank you!

Hi Lydia,

I will MC this project for you. Note that this will be Version 2 of this book as there is a group recording in the catalog https://librivox.org/the-league-of-the-scarlet-pimpernel-by-baroness-orczy/.

Be back with your MW shortly.

Since this will be your first project as soloist/book coordinator(BC), you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

If you have any questions, let me know. Looking forward to working with you.

Hey, Lydia -

Since this is your solo, you won't need to post the links here in the discussion part - just paste them into the MW, and then drop me a note saying Section so-and-so is up. :)

Hi Jo,
I'm running into a snag. I followed the instructions to log in and set a new BC/MC password, but having done that initial step, I keep getting a screen that says "You don't have permissions for this area." I searched the forum for this problem and saw it suggested to try logging out and in multiple times, but after five+ tries, I keep getting the same message.

My fault! I forgot to go back and add you to the project as BC. Sorry :oops: You should be able to log in now.

Just to be sure I am giving you the correct answer, please tell me exactly where in the process you are getting the permissions error.

That usually means you were logged into the uploader with the uploader password. There should be a link on that error page to log out. Do that and then try again.

If you have successfully logged into the workflow and then get this message, it means you have clicked somewhere that is only accessible to MCs.
Oh man, I should have known - having bothered you with this, it's now suddenly working after I tried it two more times.
I do apologize. I guess I just needed to log in and out a few more times for it to kick in!

Nothing you were doing wrong. As I noted in my edited post, I hadn't added you to the project as a new BC earlier. Rookie mistake by a not so rookie MC. :lol:

Ah! No worries! I'm relieved I didn't mess something up and create a mess.

Hi Lynette!

Part one, chapter one is up. I've already gone ahead and run it through the checker. Track time is 5:36.

Just a heads up - there are a few whacky turns of phrase in this chapter, particularly at the very end: "-lest reality—hideous and brutal—once more confrontED her." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Also a hilariously and unnecessarily archaic form of "lantern."

Thanks!
Lydia R.
