    I love the voicing done in "A Cry for Help," its corny yes, but if you've ever played PnP and had a DM act out voices that are far off from their own (or had to do it yourself), then you can't help but laugh.

    I really like the Red Fens voicing as well as the Madness packs. Especially in Acute Delirium's solution to getting up to the portal, "...build an airship! Out of furniture!"

He is capable of doing many different voices quite well, including Brawnpits, Yaulthoon, Belashyrra, and the Mimic. I love the mimic. It does help the narrator that some sound modifications are being made after the voice acting to help create these other characters.
    • The Original Narrator (Circa Start to Module 7) - It may be that we all started with him, but his voice is a kind of soothing storyteller's voice. The blatantly strained female voices he does also adds a charm in his favor.
    • Jeets - Good delivery of some great lines.
    • Celimas - In a way I seem to love to hate her, being it is the stereotype zealous Lawful Good female. Her lines are clear and fit, much better than the placeholders they had at first.
    • Droaam Narrator (circa U7, U8) - Little to say other than she does fits the theme. Her subtle raspiness and "hissing" bits are also great flavor being she did medusa and hag heavy content.


    DM Narrators and Voiceovers I don't mind
    • Necropolis Narrator (Circa Cursed Crypt and Orchard Series) - While not a powerful delivery, there is little I can say that I hate about the way she carries her lines. It blends into the background a bit, which is better than being obstructively noticeable.
    • Eldorudo (Devil Assault and Arraetrikos) - Former DDO staff member who worked heavily on the Marketplace destruction event. It was only fitting they gave him Devil Assault and Arraetrikos. You can tell he is NOT a voice actor by his Devil Assault lines, but he doesn't do horribly at them.
    • Heyton - Not bad, but not much that is memorable, other than his one-hit wonder.
    • Talbron Tewn - For some reason, I never cared much for the delivery of this Warforged.
    • Gary - He may be a bit overly dramatic and perhaps a bit louder than he should be, but considering his tabletop roots it endears you that style.
    • Tolero (Redone voicing for The Black Abbot) - I'll cope... A bit of nostalgia from former Merlask videos may help with the coping.
    • Inspired Narrator - To be honest, I used to despise the voice-work of him, but I no longer feel for or against it. The way he does some of his lines are quite nice.


    DM Narrators and Voiceovers I could do without
    • Kobold - Sadly, while the lines are nice, they are high pitched in the annoying way, not the endearing way.
    • Dave - No offense to the man, but his voicing delivery drab.
    • Post-Original Narrator (circa Module 8, Module 9, Sharn Syndicate) - His voice makes me a bit sleepy, rather than attempting to engage me more into what is occurring. Also, his pronuncation of some words could use some work. I still consider any of the lines that he re-recorded over the Original Narrator to be a travesty.
    • Eberron Unlimited Narrator (circa Update 4 and any re-records between Update 1-4) - Sorry, no. The voice is either unenthusiastic and full of "meh", or over-pronunciation at the wrong time. I wish I had an old copy of the Original Narrator doing the way into Khyber, to show the disparity.
    Well put and very much like what I think.

    when I first started I didn't mind the original guy but after a while I just turned them all off because I'd rather hear party members etc. The one exception is when I do delera's I turn it on because Gygax's voice reminds me of my friend's dad who was my first DM back when i was like 12 and went all through high school.

    Maybe Turbine should run a competition where a player could voice a new module..

    The best guy is the one from Delirium, and second best is whoever the one is from the IQ quests. I dunno which they are on your list.

    I really enjoy hearing the dude from chronoscope, madness chains, and lady from lordsmarch the most (tie)

    What I hate are the horrible grammatical errors and as mentioned before the inconsistency between how they voice something, and the description of how they were supposed to say it "she boomed"...

    The girl's voice in the Orchard drives me nuts. It sounds like they were on a deadline and got the receptionist to come in and read the lines. Very unprofessional.

    I love the lady who voices the Lordsmarch quests- very well done. And the new stuff is really professional as well.

    Overall, the only one I find annoying is the low budget voiceover for the Orchard quests- I always turn those off now.

    Actually, I went in and turned on the DM voice while doing my TR lowbie and I really enjoy most of them. Since I am TRing solo or duo mostly, I don't have to hear party chat. Most of them are really well done!

    I have to say I quite like the default narrator his voice can make it more "dark and mysterious". I really wanted to like Gary, but it really just sound like he's reading some news over the radio no real emotion or building of atmosphere. Ran Therenal only a couple of times and don't remember the voice, so can't really say anything about Dave.
