thanks Brad ! Meercraft is really a slick (and fast) talker :shock: your typical con-man, I would gather LOL You play him to perfection, talking so fast and persuasively that people have no time to think and maybe bring in arguments. Well done. :thumbs:

A few things are missing though:

> first, a small note concerning editing spaces. While you leave large enough space between most of your chunks, you forget to leave some seconds in-between your speeches, even though they are interrupted by stage directions, especially in the first 3 minutes of your file. Although they are not overly long, still it's feasible for Todd to cut the parts out, so for now they are ok, but don't let them become any shorter.

> at 3:32: here you really need to leave at least some space for the directions. Also you forgot to read "Project four: Dogs' skins." belonging to the next chunk. (p. 282 bottom)

> right at the end, you forgot quite a lot of your speech, the entire dialogue on pages 296-299. Could you include these please and re-upload ?

thanks

wonderful Tomas :clap: I couldn't stop laughing during the scene where you are crying over your wife's infidelity "Oh bird how could you do this to me ?" this sobbing and moping there was simply excellent.

All the rest well acted out as well :thumbs: and no errors or missing parts ! Fitzdottrel 2 & 3 PL ok

thanks !

Et voilà, c'est fini: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/devilisanass_fabian_5.mp3

The "possession" scene was probably one of my favourite things I've recorded thus far. Fabian may be a fool, but he knows how to put on a show when push comes to shove. :lol:

wunderbar, très bien fait, era una meraviglia :clap: (no I am not possessed... :roll: )

I agree, this scene is the perfect playground to live out an actor's devious dreams :mrgreen: you took out the most of it. I marvel at your tongues. :thumbs: Fitzdottrel is well in the box now. Act 5 also PL ok.

I recorded Wittipol and if I didn't have a flood going on I'd be editing it now. I wasn't quite ready for the long cross-dressing scene and figuring out how to convey that with voice alone but I have tried...

Thanks, Todd

Corrections of Meercraft Act Two, plus Act Three as well.

Interesting how I managed to leave off the last few pages of Act Two, because I know I read them. I must have neglected to save the file after I had read that part. Anyway, I hope I've left adequate spaces this time as well.

yes the space is now better, thanks Brad. Act 2 is now complete and no errors, so PL ok.

In Act 3 I found one line that could be corrected, to make a bit more sense:

> at 7:55: (p. 305 middle): "you have there now some Bristol stone" - you say "you have been there"

the rest excellently played out. :thumbs:

woah :shock: he talks a lot too ! Well done, I especially love the part where you talk for the lady Fitzdottrel :lol: Enjoyed the voice-change there. Now I'm sooo curious about the Spanish Lady !!!

So far I listened to Act 1. I found one error, which I think changes meaning, but I'm not too sure, so I let you decide whether we can let it slip:

> at 12:51 (p. 279 middle): "'twere rude injury to importune more" - you say "opportune"
