Bah. The more civilized Dwarves should clearly speak with upper-crust Oxford accents, while the wild Elves should have Irish accents. Give the Gnomes and Hobbits... sorry, Halflings Cornish accents, and make Goblins use ridiculous French accents ("Fetchez la vouche!") for the sheer Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moments. Humans? They're Norse.
