If you're Alliance: Translates/mutilates your written word into something Flintlocke could've typed. Oh aye!
If you're Horde: Translates/mutilates your written word into something Sen'jin could've carved in a stone. Ya, mon!
I've tried to incorporate some randomness; play around with it a bit, type the same thing a few times, and you'll see what I mean.
Example (Dwarven slang -- /dwarvenizer): 'Ah, Loch Modan. Always a great sight for my old eyes. Everything so neat and tidy, and the few beasts around here... we'll be taking care of them in no time.' ...becomes... 'Ah, Loch Modan. Always a great sight for me old eyes. Ev'rythin' so neat and tidy, an' tha few beasts around 'ere... we'll be takin' care o' them in no time.'
Example (Troll slang -- /trollizer): 'Yes... I will kill you now.' ...becomes... 'Yah, mon... I be killin' ya now.'
Your mileage may vary, depending on your Dwarvenizer/Trollizer settings and randomness.
Also, I clearly consider this an RP enhancement addon. If you can't or don't want type straight, it won't do you much good anyways.
Works in every private, local or group channel (say, whisper, party, guild etc.) and numbered standard channels (general, trade etc.) from 1 to 4. If a line starts with '((', it is considered OOC and left alone. If you want to change the channel settings, type '/dwarvenizer toggle' or '/trollizer toggle'.
Remember: while you're writing straight English, your written word will be actually 'mutilated' prior to sending it. It's not just cosmetic.
When it's first loaded, it's in Dwarvenizer mode. To switch, type '/trollizer'. If you want to switch back, type '/dwarvenizer'.
For options and (somewhat sparse) in-game help, type '/dwarvenizer' or '/trollizer'.

Sorry, no screenshots since there are no added or changed UI elements!
Little background here: I mainly wrote this for two reasons: one, I thought it might be a fun little addon, nothing more, nothing less. And two, I wanted to know whether I could write an addon in LUA, a language I never had any business with in the past. (I could.) This took roughly three evenings to do so far, so bear with me. :)
Patch Notes 1.8, 2007-04-04 - FIX: Changes to make it work with 2.0 and TBC. Thanks to KeruptisSaDiablo at Curse for suggesting a fix, saved me a bit of work, hehe. :) Known Bugs with this version ATTENTION: Turns out Dwarvenizer/Trollizer is incompatible with RPfilter (or the other way around). If you try to run them at the same time, you might be unable to send out any chat messages.
