Does this mean mean that we can expect Toothrot's voice to sound like that if he appears in tales?
I guess I was just expecting something closer to the more traditional cliché Cornish accents that pirates always seem to have in movies, just a bit older; maybe rasping a little. That's to say; a little more like LeChucks, only older and less aggressive.
I never really thought that the "ole prospector" accent was just the way United Stateians talk when they get old. But then I never really thought about it, but I did once see a "Joe Gets
" pod (it was the one at the lumberjacking event) and one guy who was in his late 20s/early 30s spoke with an accent alot like that old stereotype, it was particularly noticeable when he laughed. I don't know if his accent was typical of people from that area or if he immigrated from another part of the country, but I'm sure it's more likely to be regional than caused by age.
