I was thinking we could take it further with a -slight- change. Instead of concluding with voice, tone, drawl, etc. at the end, what if it was just necessary somewhere in the description, like how spoofing works with names.
*In a rusty drawl darkened with whiskey*
*With a tone like honey*
*Spoken with a voice made a bit funny by a Lonestar accent*
We'd still know they were voices as they are flanked by asterisks, but it would open up a lot of room for more vibrant and evocative descriptions.
Let me know what you think!
