There's many unique and original names in ToME4, including the Maj'Eyal.
Are they still using the Tolkien's pronunciation rules ?

Yeah, that's a good question. I always pronounced it "Mauj Eye-yall". Now that I actually think about it, that's probably way off. Maybe "Mage Eee-yale"? "Mag Yall" (silent e)?


I have a feeling we all have different ways of saying it by this point, regardless if there is an established pronunciation.

Mahj-eye-all is how I have always pronounced it. My guess is that Tolkien rules are still largely in effect.

Darkgod and Grey (the biggest plot and world creators) pronounce it on the roguelike radio.

... I can't really write phonetic so that ppl will understand so... :-/

I pronounce it Mahj Ay (as in "day") Al (as in Alfred).

I've always pronounced it something like "Mahj, eh? All!"

edit: the "mahj" would be like the Kazon leaders from early episodes of Star Trek: Voyager, if you remember them... :P

Madj-eye-all. And I think that those of us who remember Voyager are trying very hard to forget it. :lol:

I didn't like season 1 of Voyager, but most shows aren't that good in season 1. The actors need time to get into their roles, especially in sci-fi. I stopped watching for a while but I thought it was really good as of season 4. Possibly earlier, but I missed those.

I think I pronounce it the same as you two, although I stress the second syllable. A bit difficult to read in phonetics but would look something like this:

məˈʤaɪæl
