Mabinogi is based on Celtic Mythology, correct?
Celtic mythology stemming from mostly Irish, Scottish and some British decent.
Obviously all the NPCs in the story-line speak in English, but considering the origin, wouldn't they all be speaking with accents?
Next time you're talking to Ferghus, imagine him with a thick Scottish accent because chances are that's probably what he would sound like based off the Celtic setting.
All our faves likely have European accents and I think that's an interesting new thing to consider next time you read some NPC dialogue.
(For those of you in EU I'm sure you already read their dialogue like this anyway.)

    I always pictured Ferghus sounding like Hagrid from HP :3

    I never really thought of reading the NPC's text in voices at all.. Now I'm going to add accents to EVERYBODY

    I'm from EU, but i never thought of making up accents for NPCs, never in life. I'm too lazy for that.

    From the UK myself, and while I've never gone out of my way to give the characters accents, I guess that is probably how I naturally read the text anyways XD

    Ferghus would sound like a Robin William's impression of a drunk Scotsmen.

    Nope. I think it can only apply to the ones that live in the UK, or people that traveled to UK (and can distinguish various accents)

    I'm 100% sure I need to go see some youtube videos to understand the various accents, NPCs seem so monotone to me D:

    I got a little excited when the Meryl/Laighlinne partner (I forgot specifically what it's called) had a voice. I was like AAAA NEXON IS FINALLY DOING VOICE ACTING? But then I realized how far fetched that sounds and got sad because odds are they'd never go to that length to do something that cool lol
