and now I assigned 22 roles to both Craig and Jason. Now only waiting for Tomas to relinquish 2 of his roles and assigning them to C&J respectively. And then we're DONE (and can start recording LOL)

MW so far accurate, apart from the 2 DR roles which need to be changed

perfect, this works out, so Craig receives Puck and Jason Rhoecus :thumbs: I feared it would involve more messing around.

Sorry it was confusing the way I counted the roles probably. Maybe I should have counted the packages as 1

Well now we are all set. Have fun recording.

and two very short DR roles...

https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/worldsbestpoetryvolume6_1_013_sonia_various_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 0:35 min.

https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/worldsbestpoetryvolume6_1_015_sonia_various_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 0:45 min.

I plan on pre-PLing the DR parts again before assembling, so the errors get caught immediately. Would anyone of you have time to pre-PL my parts, please ?

Not pressing of course, as it's still early days.
