:shock: Cario, the psychopathic butcher of Athens ! :shock: Wow, now you managed to really give him a character and I love the voice. He's the Freddie Krueger of Ancient Greece :lol: An excellent scene. :clap: And PL ok.

Thank you so much !

"Bring that fellow along. If he doesn't follow, drag him, lifted on high, out of doors."

Pyrgopolinices leaves with his head held high, and his feet held higher!

This role was a lot of fun. :mrgreen: But the Greek Lord Flashheart, Sonia? Flashheart got all the girls ... and it wasn't exactly Smooch City for this mug! :lol:

well I didn't mean the "kissing" bit, but the "bragging" bit :lol: in that he was quite in line with Flashheart. But indeed, now in the final act he is definitely more subdued. Meeting Cario the butcher is too much even for the captain.

It was a great performance, Chris, I really enjoyed it a lot. I hope you get the rasp out of your voice again soon ;) can't have been good for your vocal chords. Oh and you gave us a great final line, I'm sure the audience will give standing ovations after such an appeal for applause. :clap:

Both acts absolutely PL ok. The captain is in the box. Thanks !

Here is Milphidippa: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/milesgloriosus_milphidippa_4_128kb.mp3
Milphidippa and Acroteleutium are quite clever schemers :lol: I'm happy we have this scene together, I'm sure we'll play great off each other.

Loved your performance, you play the witty confidente exquisitely well. :thumbs:

Only two small comments:

> from 7:35-7:48: (p. 132) "by my troth..." etc – I also recorded this line for Acroteleutium, because I think it's her speech, considering Milphidippa speaks again right after this. But leave them in for the time being, and Todd can decide in the end.
See discussion here: viewtopic.php?p=1800799#p1800799

> at about 9:18: (p. 134) missed line: "Why ?" – you said it only once, but she says it again one line later. Maybe you want to give us another intontation for the second one ?

thank you

Sonia

Thank, Sonia! I love when we have scenes together and I can't wait to hear it put together!

I did think it was odd that Milphidippa had 2 lines back to back. It does make sense that it is your line now that you point that out but like you said, Todd can decide :)

Added the second "Why" at 9:20. If it's not different enough from the first I'll be glad to redo it!

now it's excellent like that. I just didn't want to use the exact same "why" twice, because that sounds a bit odd I think, so near each other. But this one is different. :thumbs: PL ok now, thank you

And yes, I also love our dialogues. Hopefully many more to come. :9: ¨
