So we know what some of your toons look like, sound like when they sing, hear running through their heads when you puppeteer them, and even what famous people would play them in a movie.

My question is, whom do they sound like when they talk? Just talk. Sitting around Zvidureth, in their favorite bathhouse or boudoir, when calling out friend or foe, tossing back a frosty adult beverage, and so on? It would help if it's someone in public view, rather than "Rollek sounds like this guy I used to date when I didn't know better" or "Thienna sounds like my mom."

Lily sounds like a slightly more eloquent, female version of David Bradley's character Arthur Webley, and Karl Johnson's character Bob Walker, from the popular 2007 film Hot Fuzz, mixed together.

I think of Tor sounding like Chris Hemsworth when he plays Thor. Though it would be interesting if he actually sounded like Mike Tyson. :)

I think Thienna sounds like everybody's mom.

I think MJ sounds like Tracey Ullman.. except her accent would be northern Avlis seafarer with a hint of Romni.

Maybe Eva Green for Grace. That's a hard one.
Not losing her mind in Penny Dreadful Eva but more Bond Girl Eva.

Akren is really an inspiration buldt on the actress of Eva Green, So I picture her when I speak and her darker look. Just where I got Akren's inspiration from... :twisted:

Difficult one.

I'd have to go for Helena Bonham Carter. (actually, both her look and her voice are a pretty close fit to what I have in mind when I'm playing Ulu...) She's such a great actress.

Glenda sounds like a slightly more squeaky Laurie Bream from Silicon Valley.

I myself am strange and unusual.

Solveig...I actually have no idea. I swear I've heard voices in the past that fit, but I can't remember who it was. Not really any major celebrity because none of them have the proper accent or cadence.

Ambrose, my Malekite that I haven't played in like 4 years, is straight up (slightly younger) Michael Rooker though.

I'm kinda interested what people think other peoples' PCs sound like vs. what their players think...

Eleanor sounds like Kate Beckinsale and Rosamund Evrion sounds like Rosamund Pike, two guesses where her inspiration came from...

I've said this in the past...but Lilliana = Tara Strong as Raven. (Sorry, this means she shares a VA with Twilight Sparkle)

I know she's long gone but I always thought that Kandi would sound like that lovely actress from the awesome Carry on Screaming! Movie, Fenella Fielding

Such a rich and delightful voice :D

Elvish on Tairis is based on Scots Gaelic. So it hadda be a Scottish accent. But if you cross Ahnold with Alvin the Chipmunk, that's Arglebargle perfectly. Used to strain my vocal cords RPing him in PnP. :+)
