It's so much fun to read about how the word-hunters do what they do (I imagine a lot of thought goes into the set-up beforehand), and nice to see the success of this particular encounter! I particularly appreciated your portrayal of Kestrel's role as an advisor here!

Such a clever word-hunt! I was wondering how they were going to get words fitted to objects/actions/people by just observing (you can of course learn a lot that way, but basics are good to have before you try it). And the details on the human language!

This is a great first story about the word-hunters in action! I particularly appreciated the depiction of them thinking through a strategy (plant something valuable, see what the humans say when they find it), instead of it just being them sitting in hiding and listening to random conversation.

Of course, it'd be funny if the word that One-Leg thinks means "amber" turns out to mean something else in context, like "ah, jackpot!" ;-)

It was really fun to read through the word hunt, and how they skillfully set out a trap to see what happens and what words the humans use. Nice work on the human language, too! I can imagine that it's a pain in the arse to write like that.

The pride and thrill nearly seems the same as in a hunt for food, I really liked that !

I only can echo what the others said. It's nice to thee the word-hunters in action. I especially like to see all the details of this. Even the humans have a very own character here each of them. That's really nice.

I really can't wait to see more of that. It's quite interesting to see the process and I am curious where it will end up!

Thanks, Chris, for taking on the first story about the word-hunters. It can be quite the task, and I think you gave a great glimpse into the workings of the teams and what they might see and hear. :) The detail is helpful, and I enjoyed the use of the foreign language... will be neat to see us hear more of the human's words as the elves learn them!

I've been waiting quite a while to see some stories of the word-hunters at work, and I really like this first glimpse we've been given. Not only do we get to see how the word-hunters go about with their learning, we've learned something pretty important about the humans, as well, I think.

Yay, finally we get to see the word hunters at work! I really liked that glimpse in their work and how they organized everything :). And yay, they managed to learn the word that's so important to the amber hunters' culture!
