    "Desp", as in the first part of the word desperate. "ran", like the verb . Hmm, not 100% sure about the last name, as I did not come up with it. I think "Neg" is pronounced like egg with an "n" at the beginning, and the "ai" is pronounced like the pronoun I.

    so like a five year old trying to say desperate?

    I have no words for that.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    Nah, I corrected Caoimhaen's (though somewhat indirectly and possibly incorrectly).

    No, it's throatgobbler. Now you're the only person who's been corrected twice.

    @Yue, I was corrected first ;)

    I tend to draw out vowels when I speak though.

    I liked the idea of a name originating from twilight, not the book/film franchise, but the word and it's associated imagery. So I pronounce my name like the first syllable of 'twilight'.

    But whilst on the topic, a post from the forums of sci-fi/fantasy author Michael Moorcock I read a while back, quoted from the author himself, springs to mind. I'll put a link here, only in the interest of speculation regarding the pronunciation of fictitious names: http://www.multiverse.org/fora/showthread.php?t=24977

    Off topic, but I always loved the colour twilight. It makes me -exceptionally- sad I cannot ever use it in Achaea.

    Interesting link, though!

    Don't worry, Twilight has a vastly different and cooler connotation in Achaea.

    @Zii, Zed!

    On topic Lee-ankh-a, like Bianca but with an L and less nasal-cockney.
    The sweltering heat of the forge spills out across the land as the rumbling voice of Phaestus booms, "I want you to know, the Garden reaction to that one is: What?"
    The voice of Melantha, Goddess of the Seasons, echoes amid the rustle of leaves, "That's the censored version."
