It's quite nice :)

I added it in the repository:

Here's what I added in the README-REPLACEMENTS.txt file:

  - wscream.wav
    Girl scream (e.g. when you hit Chealse, the girl near the well in
    the first village).  Also played at very low rate in Lyna's Story
    for the Dead Dragon Carcass scene.
    Performed by Maria Carmona Varo, recorded by Jerônimo Medina
    Madruga.  The .wav version is edited to make it a bit less loud, and
    with efforts to reduce the "wind" of the micro.

Are the names correct?  I took them from your first name, and from the
.ogg file metadata ("Artist").  I ask, because you sign "Fernando" :)
