Thanks! I'll take all but the Servant. I think your voice is too distinct to have two characters in the same chapter. I don't think it'll be TOO hard to fill some of those slots, especially if I decide to let the women into these roles. :lol:

Thanks! One minor-ish adjustment:

Chapter 29:

0:30 - "This Pulido business" - you said Piludo. ;) Should be Poo-LEE-do.

I did a very quick spot check, and it's OK. I'll check it to the text later.

Hi, Tricia! :) There aren't any female roles left, are there? Would it be alright I took one of the teeny roles, like Servant with two lines...? (I understand if the answer is "no.")
Would you like to be a part of LibriVox's Christmas choir? This year, it's "Away in a Manger."

At this point I'm going to say no. The servant line says "he said", so it's a male. Perhaps when we're a year into this project and not enough men have stepped up, I'll open up some parts to females. But not so early in the project.

Oh, I see. Yeah, I hadn't read what the lines actually were. Well, thanks anyway! :wink:

Caballero and Narrator16 are PL OK!

Chuck - that last chapter took a lot of effort, didn't it? :lol:

Believe it or not, but I did spend a little time looking for more lines. :-P

Just a quick text correction - I'm working on Chapter 19, and noticed a sentence that sounded a little funny:
"So Don Diego went from the house and walked slowly up thought of coming to combat with such a man."
I looked it up online and found that there is an important line of text missing from this version. The entire paragraph should read as follows:
"So Don Diego went from the house and walked slowly up the hill toward the presidio building.
Captain Ramon observed his approach, and wondered at it, and snarled at the thought of coming
to combat with such a man."
Here's a link to the Google Books version I found which had the correct text:

https://books.google.com/books?id=R37uCQAAQBAJ&pg=PT109&lpg=PT109&dq=So+Don+Diego+went+from+the+house+and+walked+slowly&source=bl&ots=HDw-7_Fea5&sig=s_yJeTX8B7Si4JBXPDdsCBeaAlY&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwju_8zezO3RAhWCiVQKHR5eC4EQ6AEIHTAB#v=onepage&q=So%20Don%20Diego%20went%20from%20the%20house%20and%20walked%20slowly&f=false

Thanks! :-)
