Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
You voted, our adventurers listened: today, the Illocutionary Force heads to the Bounding Node, home of the Scarlet WHich! What dangers await them? What is the dastardly Scarlet WHich plotting within her bizarre lair? Will one of our adventurers be seriously injured in this chapter (hint: yes)?
A snippet from the latest chapter to whet your appetites:
"'Thank goodness the world has stopped falling apart around our ears for a moment,' groaned Proto Baggins. 'I'm getting too old to be gallavanting about nonstop, saving the entire ungrateful world. I haven't had a moment to spend with my macrofamily in weeks.'
Professor P. patted Proto's hand sympathetically. 'I know what you mean. Lately I've been so stressed that I'm afraid I might start to geminate.'
The Force spent a pleasant few minutes laughing, commiserating, and feasting. But, like most pleasant times recently, it was cut short by a bloodcurdling noise..."
Oh, horrors! What could that bloodcurdling noise be? Head to the Saga page to read Chapter Five and find out:
Happy reading, The LINGUIST List Crew
