Yes, that seems to be a chronic problem.
Perhaps it's because the blog itself is so full of good news that none of us has had time to figure out if the blog title is an homage to "Hooked on a Feeling" (the impression I get whenever I see anything with "hooked on" in it) or if it is a Hooked on Phonics (derived from Hooked on Chronic, apparently) thing. Personally, I'm still reeling from the announcement of the class deck I've been waiting for most.
I think it plays on Hooked on Classics, but I'd never even have thought about it if Mike hadn't made that comment.

I got it, but then I'm the target demographic for something like that.

We were working on this deck today and I can assure you we used at least these three pronunciations in less than five minutes.
As usual, this one calls for a private joke for those of us having some notions of this Gaelic Dwarvish language called French...
Once you get that, it's downhill to an infinite-indefinite list of puns: "A Mon Gus is Among Us" and so on...
Note also that the current nickname for magic-users in French is "Mago" (I guess we stole that from the Spanish).
Please pronounce like "Ma Goat" without the "t" since:
- you don't want to call a Magus a Goat, let alone My Goat
- since froggies invented a language where you don't pro-noun-ce all the letters, lets leave the "tea" to the Brexited
Which actually sounds exactly like "Magot" (if we steal back the "tea" from the Brits), which in turn is slang for "pile of money".
And this is why the Magus gets all the loot and the Brits all the goats. In all due respect.
I am a little late to the discussion, I just saw the article I was away from this website for several month well almost a year. Anyways my favorite is;
Vampire (well Dhampir, close enough) and Necromancer.
I am in love.
Actually I saw the artwork of nyctessa over a year ago, I fell in love with that character almost right-away, love her background story, and I thought to myself; Oh boy! How cool would it be to play as her! Well now its actually happening.
I can't wait...
Edit: The only thing cooler would be a Dhampir Samurai
