[This thread was previously titled, "Needed: A pronunciation guide for #43, Curse of the Barrens"]

Hello Goodman Games forum folks.

I've been away for a very long time tackling my Masters degree. I'm done and ready to get my gang back together on a monthly basis!

The plan is to "re-launch" my group who completed "Sellswords of Punjar" and half of Necromancer's "Coils of Set." I'm going to have them head north and tackle The Curse of the Barrens. However, I would be extremely grateful to this module's author, Greg Oppedisano, providing a pronunciation guide to aid those with thick Mid-Western tongues to say names that look un-pronounceable!

Thanks & I'm happy to be back!

JediOre

P. S. -- After looking at the levels of my friend's PCs, if all of the gang shows, I may have to select something different, but this is a module Ragnar1965 requested back when we gamed (pre-Masters) so I would like to let him go through this before they get beyond it.

I'll pass the word on to Greg for his feedback. But don't worry too much...if you can pronounce "Vecna" and "dweomer" then how hard can it be? :)

LOL!

Just ask my wife & friends how I pronounce "brazier" when I'm tired!

I need all the help I can get.

*Bump*

I need this for the last weekend in October!

I'll run this module regardless, but I really want to get the names spot on.

Thanks.

P. S. -- boneguard, my mouth will, on occasion, utter a woman's undergarment instead of a container of fire. :oops:

No word from Greg, the author - I don't know if he's busy or what. I'll ping him again...

I am honoured that you think I know how to pronounce all of the different words I use when writing these things :D

As a general guide most of the words are Anishnabe (Ojibwa) indian or Blackfoot Plains Cree, and they did not have a written language so the English spelling of the words is very phonetic.

Can you give me a list of words you would like pronounced and I will write you up a guide.

Greg

Thanks for the reply Mr. Oppendisano!

You answered my question when you wrote "the English spelling of the words is very phonetic."

I'll do my best, and now I know the spelling is phonetic.

This is going to be the module that follows up our Treasure Map quest and the star of our 2-day game fest on October 29 and 30. I think this module will be "just right" for our two 5th level and one 4th level PCs, assuming they all survive the completion of their current adventure.

I'll attempt to post their adventures on the forum boards when the time is right.
