As a GM, do you use accents and unique voices for your NPCs?
Back in the days of weekly (or more often) gaming, I would try to instill certain NPCs with unique voices. I felt it made them more memorable, and judging from my player's reactions, it did.
I used it mostly with shopkeepers and such that I knew they would deal with repeatedly. Yeah, the stereotypical Scottish brogue for the Dwarven Armorer, a kid's voice for the Halfling Thieves Guildmaster, a German accent for the Bartender of their favorite tavern... stuff like that.
Needless to say, there were times I got my voices crossed, and they would always call me out on it when it happened ;)
Still, it was fun and effective. Then again, I have a bad habit of talking in accents ;)
