|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!|
