I'm thinking about offering to read Politian. That caused me to listen to several recordings, because I wondered how to pronounce this name.
I hear different speakers using "Po-LI-ti-an", "Po-LI-si-an", "Po-LI-shi-an" and even "Po-li-TI-shun".
As he is the Earl of Essex, Bristish English rules would normally apply, but as this is not an English name, I guess all bets are off.

Can anybody say authoritatively what it should be?

I see the following site gives: "Poh-LISH-un" https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/politian, which is the same as yours except the "n" is pronounced.

It was an h by accident, so you're right.

Regardless of how it's pronounced :0), I volunteer to do the Politian character, which is files 87, 92 and 95.

When I looked it up, I found it pronounced Po-LI-shin: https://www.howtopronounce.com/politian/

Since I didn't find it pronounced any other way online, I went with that. :)

Just wondering if there is any help needed for the "acts"? I'd be glad to help out for those, whatever it is :D

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/politian this is what I found. I don't think the difference is that critical.

You can look at the lower sections and see what roles are missing. We need recorders :D

Will do. If you need any help editing the final thing, I can help with that too. Not a lot of people enjoy doing it... I kind of do.
