I just ran across this and the story sucked me in completely and I absolutely love the characters and the language and I am so impressed listening to this story unfold every step of the way. Amazing escape to just laugh at the personalities and attitudes that clash and mesh and truly wish there was more to look forward to...
It's so good!
I've reached 2007 and have been enjoying it a great deal. Sure, remastering, better tech, etc. would be great but it's not what they had then. Voices get muddled, especially modified magical voices, even with Overcast leveling and boosting. (Imagine- if Apple didn't break the pod player with iOS 11 I wouldn't have found Overcast).
I guess the "reports", etc that aren't part of the storyline aren't available so I can't access the constructed language episode. Too bad.
High production quality.
Very well put-together, and more sophisticaed that the average fantasy narrative.
