Eternal Sky spoiler thread!

Shattered Pillars has been out for two weeks now, so here is your Eternal Sky spoiler thread!

Feel free to chat, ask questions (which I may or may not answer), and speculate.

I'm neck-deep in finishing Steles of the Sky, currently. It's due in ONE MONTH. Yikes!

Silly questions:

How is Ctesifon pronounced? K'tess, s'tess, or stess? Long or short i in the middle? Fawn or phone?

Also, is the ae in Aezin a dipthong as in orthopaedic, a diphthong as in aerial, a dieresis, or d) none of the above?

PedanticInquiring minds want to know.

Re: Silly questions:

My attitude is that you c an pronounce stuff any way you want, since it's made up, and I have a terribly inability to pronounce non-American vowels.

I pronounce Aezin with a dipthong as in "Aerial" or "bagel" (an ash, basically), and Ctesifon "S'TESS-ih-fahn."

But your idiosyncratic pronunciations are perfect, too. whatever you hear in your head is fine.
