    Default Bahmi Pronunciation?

    I was curious if anyone knows or could provide a credible source as to how to pronounce the Bahmi race. Currently I pronounce it as BAH-um-e pronouncing every syllable leaving nothing silent and enunciating the capitals. Other ideas I have had follow.

    1. Bah-me (like Bah Humbug)

    2. Bay-me

    3. BAH-Meeee

    4. Bami (bambi w/o the second b, h is silent)

    Any suggestions?

    Surenchu Chechegi, the Planar Augment Merchant in the Manufactory of Meridian has a line that contains the word Bahmi and is spoken aloud when you go to buy something. She pronounces it BAH-mi, with the emphasis on the first syllable and the last syllable being a bit softer.

    The problem I found with BAH-me is it just sounds like your saying ‘barmy’ oddly.

    I've been saying it as BAH-me. I do hope that's right, as I like how it sounds compared to the others, and they are my favourite race. :3

    They are the defiants Barmy Army!

    I do like them, the whole hospitaltiy, excellance and community ethos is appealing. Their origin and decision to stay and fight for what is right even when they could have just gone home says it all.

    I say it as BAH-me (like "balmy weather") . The latest podcast from Rift Podcast has Arithion speaking to the developers at Trion and saying 'BAH-me'. I think they used it as well.
