funny voices

So, how does one learn to do funny voices in any consistent manner? Like, accents and stuff.

I can do them a little for a short period of time, but I usually wander from accent to accent, turning anything I say into an unidentifiable hodgepodge mess.

Last night's D&D run went well. I looked around and people were smiling and laughing, at stuff I had done. The stress I had going into the evening once again turned out to be worth it, very much. So it's time to start really investing myself in this thing.

Coming around lunchtime: Top five productive things I should be doing instead of getting Dagny to level N+1, courtesy the "top N meme" from abce.

The tip I got when LARPing is what rif said: pick a phrase that pops you into the mindset of that character. It helps if it's a good "urr" phrase.

*pompous chuckle* "Well, dear boy."

or

"Zut alors! Tres bien, mon ami!"

or

"Ja? Vell. So."

because I tend to find I lose my accent when I'm thinking of other stuff ("oh crap, now what the heck do we do?" etc), and so if I can have filler phrases, it both acts as a filler phrase and helps re-enforce staying in the accent.

I'm in a hurry, but Dave's dead on. A few key phrases, especially ones you can play back in your head, are key to maintaining an accent.
