I would suggest removing the info about downloading AIO. I did make the Darien actor edit to AIO Wiki.

Does "sniper" mean a lone enemy soldier firing at a higher-ranking officer as opposed to a specifically-trained sharpshooter? The defender yelling "sniper" during the attempted assassination appears a bit pointless considering that guy was no good sniper.

Snipers, I think, are just someone with a gun that shoots at specific people, usually while hiding, eg. the trunk of a car.

I'm just now watching Part 2. I can't focus on it, and couldn't focus on Part 1 either. I'm getting used to Whit's new voice, but the series isn't really interesting to me... :anxious:

I really liked Part 3. I really liked the part with Anna and her visions. And for that matter, the sniper. And the Old Judge is pretty cool, as usual. It may have something to do with the fact that Samuel is one of my favorite Bible characters. :)

Part 3 has been the only part that I have been able to connect with so far. The others I just kind of listened to, didn't really connect with them.

I think it's safe to assume the piano is real. Although, when I heard it, my thoughts were something along the lines of "WHAT?! Piano in a fantasy? Blasphemy!" Then I remember that this is only half fantasy/half normal fiction, and I settled a bit.

Wow! I decided to listen to all three parts last night (totally focusing on it), and I loved it! Awesome characters; can't wait for Part 4. \:D/

Well, if a lone gunman had just fired at you/your commanding officer from a long distance wouldn't your first reaction be "sniper"?

And for all we know, the guy who shot at Darien could have been one of the best in the business. I think it's safe to assume that the only reason Darien survived was because Kyle shoved him out of the way.

I missed the sound effect of Kyle pushing Darien out of the way. I need to listen to this part again...

Well, considering they were in a battlefield attempting to flush out enemy soldiers, I would assume anyone they came across would be a generic shock trooper and not a specially trained sniper. But it's possible the soldier was a sniper. It would make more sense that Darien was miraculously protected from a sharpshooter than just some work-a-day soldier.

As far as I remember, Kyle doesn't push Darien. He merely shouts, "Get down!" But I suppose a shove could be assumed. ;)

I think the soldier really was a sniper because way would general Little and the king risk giving the job to someone that is not a trained marksman? Also Kyle did push Darien out of the way because I listen to that part again and this is what they said after someone yelled sniper, Ollie said "Darien were you hit? Get off him boy!"
and then Darien said "Take it easy Ollie, I'm all right." Kyle must of jumped on Darien for Ollie to say that.
