aha I see you have it all figured out :lol: no wonder the outlaws have an easy game, if the soldiers are sleeping in the night :roll:

anyway....both roles are well characterized. I especially love the breathlessness you gave your soldier. It really sounds like he was running a long way to convey his message. :thumbs:

Outlaw both acts PL ok

for Soldier I found a missing line at the end of your file:

p. 90, there is an Omnes line: "What dismal shriek is that?" and since the soldier is also in that scene, I suppose he would speak this line as well (especially with your breathlessness this will sound cool LOL)

But I let you decide if you want to add it, as we probably have enough voices to make up a crowd in the end. Just tell me, and I'll mark it PL ok as well.

Sonia,

Soldier updated to add Omnes line, though not as out of breath now.

Sorry everyone. My course load this semester is INSANE -- I'm teaching far more classes and students than I have in a long, long time.

Thanks for the help, David! I appreciate it. :-)

Luckily, this project seemed to be stalled out pretty bad.

Okay, maybe not "luckily." You know what I mean. :hmm:

Need to record the narration soon.

excellent acting, thanks so much Joe 8-) You really sound fierce and eager to perform your vassal-duties for your lord. This guy is a force to reckon with :mrgreen: Totally good characterization. I wish the vassal had more lines now.

PL ok straight away.

Only one question: at the end you repeated the last line. Did you forget to delete the less preferred version or will you leave the option to Chuck ?

If it is alright, let Chuck choose at this point, ok? :>) I might have forgotten. Or missed it. Or liked both and didn't know which would be preferred. (At one time God and I both knew. Now, only God knows. - either Wordsworth or Tennyson said this, possibly/probably many others from Adam on.) Thankyou!!

It's alive!

All right, I think we've let this project wither on the vine long enough. :-) Here's a couple of narration files for your consideration.

(And for the record, I plan on changing my personal credit in Act I before this goes into the catalogue. I accidentally said "Narration by Chuck W___," rather than "Narration Read By ______." I promise, I'll fix that soon.)
