Thanks for that, Sonia.

Larry: Worldly act 5 is now PL OK, but unfortunately there are still some errors in the other acts.

Act 1
0.55 The line here is "To be gentle in all parts. Captain!" That is, Worldly says "To be gentle in all parts" and then calls out for the Captain. You say it without a pause ("To be gentle in all parts, Captain.") so the implication is that Worldly is speaking the whole line to the Captain, when actually he is talking to Strange. With a pause here it will sound correct. I don't think I can add a pause in the edit because the intonation would sound off.

Act 2
0.25 "If false, he shall abide the slander dearly." You say "she" instead of "he".

Act 3
0.50 "A trusty servant. That way leads you to her." You say "her to you".

Thank you and sorry for the delay. I've been away this week.

Scudmore

Act 1
5.00 “That ow’d a sensible member”. I hear “owned”.
6.20 “What means my—“. I hear “which” instead of “what”.

Act 2 PL OK

Act 3
0.40 “happy’s that wretch, in my opinion”. I hear “wrench”.
0.55 “such is my hell-bred hap!” Word unclear.
3.45 “when i have seen a maid’s inconstancy presented to the life!” I hear “Inconsistency”.

Act 4 & 5 PL OK
Acts 1 and 3 reloaded with fixes.

Thanks, Todd

Hi Rob, just to let you know I’ve been sick for a while now and my voice still sounds weird. I think it will be a bit longer before I sound normal again - at least another month I’d estimate, as this has been going on 2 months already.

So we have three options:
1) Mistress Wagtail sounds like she has a cold, available this month.
2) Mistress Wagtail sounds like me, sometime in June.
3) Mistress Wagtail is returned to you for reassignment.

As the BC, I’ll let you decide what best suits!

Hi Beth,

Sorry to hear you're not feeling better yet. For the time being, we're in no rush. So I will reset the date on your claim and wish you a speedy recovery.

The fun role of Captain Pouts is available again (along with several over roles). If you’re just checking in for the first time, please consider helping us complete this daft comedy.
