    Well, Dwarves *did* have a strong 'dwarvish' accent when speaking Westron or Sindarin. This is written in HoME XII. Now if we had someone who speaks Hebrew, I guess this accent would fit a Dwarvish one (isn't Khuzdul based on Hebrew? Thought I read something like this in these forums).

    Hey Athan, isn't that you speakin a semitic language?

    I would rather have a memory that is fair but unfinished than one that goes on to a grievous end.

    That's an Aryan language. THE Aryan language, actually (pro tip: the politically correct term for Aryan is Iranian). Though the initial phrase is Arabic by origin.

    I could try to pronounce Khuzdul, but given my limited skills and the way the words are written down I would likely use some Persian-inspired pronunciation. Semitic languages are kinda difficult.

    Well if somebody speaks with a natural Scottish accent, I guess it's ok (though there is always the possibility of turning your regional accent off...). I just hate the thought of people (including non-Scots) putting on an extra-thick accent to make the Dwarves even more Scottish.

    If anything I would say that the original idea of dwarves, came from the peoples of scandanavia. Seems weird I know, but they weren't always tall.

    I replied to your PM, Aradan but I wasn't sure if it came through so I sent it again. Disregard the older message if you see them.

    I'll be adding more Haradrim voices soon. I've already PM'd this to Aradan.


    EDIT: Added more.

    It could be exhanged for Rhun as well. It's up to the devs.

    EDIT: Perhaps corsair babble is more appropriate for Far Harad units.

    Imperium, yes corsair babble would suit Far Harad units well. Could you try out "Champions of Far Harad" on that style?


    We're still looking for an Elven voice, and Northmen. Post your auditions in this thread


    EDIT:

    A sample of what we are looking for. Note the volume and accent (attached)

    I'll try to simulate the Northmen voice tomorrow morning when I'll be alone at home (). Elven voice is out of my vocal limits though...

    I'm curious to see more Elves myself, i've been able to do Northmen and Dwarves but I can't get Elves right.

    Tried the Northmen voice, but itwas even worse than the Quenya voiceacting I had done some time ago... In fact I hear like a 16 yo. Anyway, here's a try:

    Thanks Beorn. If you spoke louder it would be quite a good voice - but not for Elves or Northmen I'm afraid. Your voice suits a sort of Spanish/Greek faction to me - which, alas, we don't have...

    WARNING

    If we don't find any suitable Elven and Northern voice actors, I'm going to have to do them
