Again, voice acting in the tabletop roleplaying scene is something I find kind of academically fascinating, if only because I'm very bad at it. I've been with DMs who know how to make a lasting impression with a unique voice (even if it's just a Christopher Walken impression), and I've also been with DMs who don't vocally emote at all when voicing their NPCs.

As always, the acceptable standard depends on the group and the DM, and it's never expected to be a perfect performance in any case. This is a gaming session, after all.

One DM of mine could put a nice hiss in his voice, for sort of reptilian characters.

That was about all he could do, but he did it well.

I try to do voices when I DM just because it's good practice for voice acting. I don't have the range I'd like yet, but it's fun and lets me do accents. (I've nearly perfected Irish and I'm working on Russian)
