That Falconreach Idol quest was a really important lesson to me about why we hire professionals with years of training to do voice acting...

The way a character sounds is a really interesting aspect of character design, though it is unnecessary in most written media. For example, Dolores Umbridge (from Harry Potter) has a trapped voice in the films, but no mention of it is made in the stories...

Vaal, Mazurek, and I think Akanthus have their respective laughs (which sound perfect, at least for the first two).

I imagine the Hero's voice (I play as a female) as relatively deep, and slightly breathy, in a way that is not noticeable when delivering angered dialogue-- where it becomes quite strong, even forceful.

For other voices, my opinions are:
Xan has no indoor voice, and would deliver everything from the top of his diaphragm (I mean, he is probably in a constant state of suffocation from all the acrid smoke...)
The NSOD never has an indoor voice, and basically shouts absolutely everything.
Tomix's book 1 voice would be a tenor, though with a whispery, ragged quality behind it (black speech bubbles and all). In book 3 it'd be slightly deeper, containing less emotion, and in general closer to a monotone. He'd also have the accent...
Falwynn would be of a regular pitch, though her voice would raise its pitch as she becomes more excited. There'd possibly be a certain anime protagonist aspect to her voice, as well.
Gaelan's voice would be very soft, even when annoyed.
I'd see Faust as having a very dry, almost humorless tone. Perhaps a drawl.

In comedy quests, of course, it's perfectly viable to imagine the characters with the voices from Rocky Horror.

For some reason, I considered the Azaveyan accent to be more Scandinavian, obviously varying across the continent as a whole. Perhaps if the Magesterium had a rival group, with whom they played a constant game of football with the Azaveyan citizens, it would've seemed more like Poland.

Question Mark?

I always imagined Sepulchure's voice as gravelly and a little bit Scottish, like so: - link-

I picture Warlic with a slightly lilting voice, drawing his words out a little too long, emphasizing the initial syllable more than is entirely necessary. His manner of speaking could be interpreted as inappropriately flirtatious or aggressively condescending, depending on context, but even if he's taking things seriously he never really sounds like it.

Nythera seems like the type to over-enunciate everything when she's nervous or angry.

The Mysterious Stranger sounds exactly like this, complete with poor audio quality: - link-

EDIT: Even when he's turned into SMUDD, he still sounds exactly like that.

Also, i made some bad va from the last quest, kind of a headcannon voice. And some bad Gaelan's voice!

I imagine Warlic's voice to sound something like this: https://youtu.be/i1YhCwcb3GM?t=99
I also think Tomix's voice sounds like this: https://youtu.be/HXVK1D4GPOI?t=731
For me, the Mysterious Stranger sounds like: https://youtu.be/LxWpfwbofBc?list=PLDwjEcGRHRZ7pABsyzZ6bOKGshMroT93E&t=1249

Just 3 more voices, because why not.

I'm gonna be honest, i've actually been working on a Dragonfable voice headcanon video for a little while... featuring snippets of the voices I imagine for these characters all pieced together.

Maybe I should finish that.
(As this thread gave me some ideas for characters I was stuck on...)

but who i had, as i can remember without looking at the .wav file,
Alexander: Lin-Manuel Miranda......... HE'S YOUNG, SCRAPPY, AND HUNGRY. AND ALSO ON FIRE. (imagine that... with a slight country accent. juuust a bit.)
Sepulchure: Keith David, as Goliath from Gargoyles... it just works.

.... I can't remember anymore. They were on the tip of my tongue and EVERYTHING.

I assume wind elves speak with Finnish accent since most of their names are Finnish word salads.
I imagine atealans having deep, soft voices with unnatural echo and slight Arabic accents.

^ I'm gonna have a hard time unhearing that when we get our next Verlyrus quest! -.<

@below With or without the blatant pirate accent? O.o
Come to think of it, Davy Jones would probably suit the Flying Dutchman's voice quite well too.

I always imagine Xan having a more over the top version of the voice of the Flying Dutchman from Spongebob.

Cycerso~ British accent
I always imagined him with a southern accent for some reason, but I think that works better .

actually, i'd imagine that cysero doesn't have any one accent, he just changes it into whatever he feels like talking in that particular day.

I sorta now imgaine Tomix having the same voice as Qrow from RWBY, Walric having a sorta detached voice, Sepphy? a deep menacing voice, Xan= Joker, Safiria having a Russian or German voice, Artix as well America from Hetilia , Galaonth? Vlad form Alucard from Hellsing Ultimate , .. thats all i got right now

I think Tomix's voice to me, would be Zoro or Sanji's voice from One Piece. There's just something about Tomix's portrayal that seems fitting for Zoro's forcefull , but young voice, and Sanji's somewhat jaded view on life.
For Xan, I think Nicolas Cage would actually be great choice, since both show a fair hint of mania, as well as an astronomically large sense of exuberance.
Going to have to think on Warlic for a bit.

Let's see here...
I can see Cysero being voiced by Sonny Strait, like Korosensei from Assassination classroom.
I can see Wargoth, 1st form being voiced by Matthew Mercer, like this: https://youtu.be/ZXlTiFqDA08?t=1211
2nd form being voiced like this: https://youtu.be/6SK98-feW3c?t=162

Also I imagine Valencia to sound like Robin from One Piece: https://youtu.be/fJcwxMJZ_W8 https://youtu.be/za7EwGWoIVk

..and Cysero to have Gintoki's voice: https://youtu.be/CG9puicze3g

In his serious moments I could see Artix have a voice like Jonathan Joestar too: https://youtu.be/nfZ-RgWPzMQ

I was thinking about what voice could fit the Hero/Heroine but I came to the conclusion of the character's personality and the fitting voice depends on what do you imagine them to be like. Even though we have a "voiced" protagonist their personality still leaves room for your imagination in the silent moments. Well in Book3 it is less and less because the Hero is having more and more character traits defined, leaving less room for your "roleplaying" and essentially locking you between more and more borders.
Still there is so much room left that I can't find a fitting voice even for the Book3 Heroes alone.

I could see Robin's voice fitting either Valencia or Symone, though I'd say it potentially fits Symone more. As for Cysero, I'd say Max Mittleman's performance as Saitama would fit his personality pretty well.

Personally, I think the Stranger had no voice until he became SMUDD, just words that made their way into the brain without using the ears, and then I think I picture him as this, or the part at 7:45 in that link. Amadeus I picture as Shishio makoto from the dubbed version of the Rurouni Kenshin live action movies, but that's rather hard to find on youtube. Either that or Hellmaster Phibrizzo. Wargoth seems to be this in my head(the male speaker who starts up about halfway through the video).
