    You guys should spell your names like they are pronounced.

    Some of the names in this game are just ridiculous. I remember times during raids where the entire party would have to target someone based off a shortname, or in some cases a specific variable they actually set up, because the target's name was so obnoxiously long and complicated.

    I haven't done anything combat related in over a year, but that's pretty nifty.

    @Icraa asked me this and my answer was, and still is "Agzohmqueks".

    (Party): You say, "Since we are discussing it OOC, I'll let you know that I'm from Australia."
    (Party): Mariya says, "That does explain a number of things."

    I pronounce Giomanach as "Zho-mah-nahk" or "Jzo-muh-nohk"... but literally everyone just says Gio "Jee-Oh".

    The name is Irish/Gaelic, and this is how my friend in Northern Ireland told me it was pronounced, so that's how I've always pronounced it, but when I am looking it up, I'm finding several different pronunciations, such as "Gim-ana-kh" and "gee-oh-man-ick" both with a hard G-sound. So I guess it really depends on what dialect, as to how it's "really" pronounced...


    surname: Tai'Shael: Tai sounds like "tie my shoe".. and Shael is just.. "shale" like the rock.  /tī SHāl/

    (Surname has no real meaning. I just didn't care to wear the Lighthawk name because I like to be unique, and I liked the way Tai'Shael looks/sounds with the rest of the character's name.)

    I say it as chi (like the start of chitter) - ssa (rimes with fa). Now do I switch to your Ki or keep my Chi?
