Talk:Thaler (spy)

From Witcher Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

So, I wanted to add something here mentioning Thaler's accent switch when you find out he's a spy...I was thinking maybe some non-British users of the English version may not know the reason for the difference (and view them similarly to Raymond Marlowe's changes of accent, which seem to be down to bad recording continuity). So I was going to add:

"Also at this point, Thaler reveals his "true" accent, which is that of an upper class englishman, rather than the lower class cockney used in his guise as a fence. Following this he switches between the two freely."

However, I'm not sure if this wiki only covers the english audio version of the game. If it does, then I think the above would be useful, but if not it could be confusing to people using other audio versions. What's the consensus here on how to approach this? Melipone 16:20, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Feel free to add it to the Notes section of the article in a objective matter of fact way. Your contribution would be most welcome. GhostNWN 19:45, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Cheers, will do :) Melipone 08:19, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I'd noticed his accent change but didn't realize what it implied about his background. Licensed Luny 19:32, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

'Not used in the game'[edit source]

I actually recieved the jounal entry about him being interested in politics after reading the note he asks you to get.

Article name[edit source]

Since Thaler's real name is Bernard Ducat, maybe should we use it as an article name and redirect Thaler to it? SMiki5five (talk) 20:14, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

I would argue that we should not, for the simple reason that he is never, ever called Bernard Ducat in the game. It only appears in the journal entry. But i'm willing to put it to a vote — Game widow (talk) 20:18, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
