Does it tell you how to pronounce "Sahuagin?"

I usually say "Sea Devil." ;-)

Liberty's Edge

Ha! Well, as the guy who wrote the original Sahuagin piece for the Pathfinder Advanced Races Compendium (the piece that was used as the basis for this 5E version), I did a HUGE amount of research on the Sahuagin, including a lot on the origins of the race all the way back in the early days of D&D ...

I'm pretty confident it's most correctly pronounced Saw-HOO-a-gin

Great. Now I'm going to call them Saw Hooligans. :-P

Not Sa-HWAH-gin, Mark? (NERD ALERT: I'm really asking, not being a dingus.)

DDO pronounced it with the HWAH, but, then again, they pronounced Phiarlan like three different ways.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, I probably should have typed it as SAW-hwuh-gin (I've never quite been able to figure out those dictionary pronunciations!)

I guess the REAL answer is ... it's pronounced whatever way works best for you. And let's not even START on the correct pronunciation of Drow!!!!

(It rhymes with snow, by the way - you can trust me:)

The more important thing is ... regardless of how you pronounce Sahuagin, everyone should be sure to pick up Unlikely Heroes for 5th Edition!!!

Well, I got mine as a Tome of Beasts backer reward; I'm not gonna buy a second one! :P

Y'know, the first time Droe vs Drao came up on these boards, I was all, "Those johnny-come-latelies; I'm going to check that pronunciation guide from Dragon 93!" But when I did, it gave the correct pronunciation as quote, drow, or dro, unquote. Mentzer really dropped the ball on that one.

Edit: ZOMG, what if all the arguments that D&D nerds have about pronunciation are reflected in-world? In the World of Greyhawk and the Forgotten Realms, they say it differently, just like aunts vs ants or of-ten vs offen in the real world! Mind blown.

I'm pretty sure drow is a real world Scottish word.

Sovereign Court

An all too familiar problem.
