Watchman
wonderful job, Alan. I could imagine the watchman has a second job as hangman in the afternoon ;) but this one seems much nicer. 8-) I like the tune :thumbs:

I had to grin because the things he says and does uncannily remind me of the Watch duties in some of Pratchett's books. :lol: Nobby would have entered that open window. :mrgreen: (ok if you don't know Pratchett you have no idea what I'm talking about :? )

PL ok in any case. A pity he didn't have a bigger role.

Thanks !

Sonia

So how about finding the public domain ancestor to Pratchett? If there is one. I’d run all those in a minute!

Going dark for a few days in 3 - 2 - 1 -

Thanks, Todd

Thanks Sonia

Never actually read a Pratchet book but know a bit about them from other people. I did not think of what I did as a tune, just a man grumbling to himself.

well in that case you are grumbling very melodiously :lol:

Pratchett's Watch series (about the policeforce) are absolutely great. Love them ! :9:

I suppose the obvious PD ancestors of Pratchett would be Jules Verne or Jonathan Swift. Did they write plays?

Verne wrote plays but they weren't translated from the French until a couple years ago. I'll have to check on Swift....

Thanks, Todd

Good morning,
Here are two files that I have claimed.
April
8-) wonderful, April, you play the part of a gossipy biddy quite well :thumbs: especially in the second act you are really getting into to game when you are cheated out of a hanging (how macabre :shock: )

Act 2 is already PL ok, even though your voice credit is not the correct one, you are "An old Woman", not "Another old Woman", this part is read by another reader. But that's ok, Todd can simply ignore this voice credit, since there will be the correct one in the first act. No need to reupload.

for Act 1, I have some PL notes though:

> at 0:01: for the voice credit, could you please say it like it was in the MW ? "An old Woman, read by April..."

> at about 0:08: you missed some lines for "an old woman" which you also have to read:

on p. 171:
> "Is it said what the miracle will be ?"
> "God's mercy !"
> "That I should live to see this day !"

on p. 172:
> "What ? Whimp ?"

thank you

Sonia

oh and while looking through the text to find lines for the old woman, I also stumbled over a third woman, and two men who have a short speech on page 206 :? I'll put those characters in the MW as well... or maybe that's what you meant by First and Second Villager :hmm: I guess they can be doubled by some readers though. Basically they are only some female or male people in the crowd.
