Changing voice sets

Unread post by Tanlaus » Mon Jul 29, 2019 12:31 pm

This is a relatively minor suggestion, and may be more trouble than its worth, but it occurred to me that the option to change voice sets, like maybe an npc in the nexus or something, would be a nifty option.

I noticed several times I might have a character concept in mind then when I start RPing them a slightly different personality ends up emerging organically and I realize the voice I chose doesn’t really fit the character.

I figure I’m not the only one who has felt this way. I also figure that especially with characters that have been around a long time their personalities may evolve from that young adventurer to that hardened veteran where a different voice might be a better fit.

Or maybe I’m the only one who even really notices and I’m slightly off my rocker. I wouldn’t rule that out either.

I was going to do this as a chat command, but I was told it wasn't in that great demand. Maybe I will after all.

well it'd be restricted to the nexus or somesuch, not something to do mid-rp

It's difficult to know what combat shouts a character will make the most, just based on listening to the voice sets on the character creator stage. There's some voicesets that don't sound too bad on a first listen but they repeat the same thing over and over and over...

I think admin can change voicesets but it takes up their time. I don't see an issue with players changing it in the Nexus.
