:lol: you brilliantly veer between a whining boy who is in constant fear to displease in the one act and an over-excited youth jumping up and down of pleasure in the other act. :thumbs: Nicely done, Adrian.

Act 3 is already PL ok.

PL notes for Act 4:

> at about 3:22: (p. 137) four missed lines, starting with "They beg you to set out..." till "...she would have come together with me."

> from 3:42-3:47: (p. 138) "go and bring here..." these are Pyrgopolinices' lines, you can cut them out

thank you, great start in the play.

Sceledrus, Act 2, duration 20:21
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/milesgloriosus_sceledrus_2_128kb.mp3
sorry for the delay, Mike, but wow I listened to it all now. Great job :thumbs: this guy talks so much :lol: And he's the prototype of the clueless servant which you bring out to perfection in your voice. I am quite curious to get to know the rest of this mysterious story. I don't really believe the myth of the twin sisters :lol:

We'll see... this act is already PL ok. :clap: Thank you

Oh yes, and those names :shock: well done !

Sceledrus, Act 5, duration 0:55
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/milesgloriosus_sceledrus_5_128kb.mp3
:shock: over 20 minutes in one act and not even 1 minute in the other ! What happened to the guy along the way ? :lol:

Well...I can give you one more line at least in this act, Mike, you forgot the very first quote ;)

> at about 0:05: (p. 143) please insert: "Aye, some time since."

but all the rest, perfectly in character and well done. Thanks !
