How do you pronounce "Vriterbei?"

Postby Kodiak3d » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:40 pm

In the Scoundrel book in the Criminal Organization section it talks about the Vriterbei; the Traveller equivalent of the Mafia. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you how to pronounce it (something I wish RPG books would do more often). I'm thinking it's VREET-ur-bay or vrit-UR-bay.

What's everyone else think? Even better, can you tell us what it's supposed to be, msprange?

I was going to answer, "Just like it's written." But Reynard is closest to how I'd answer without the snark.

"VREE-tear-bay-ee" or "VREET-air-bay-ee".

However, there may be documented rules for Zhodani accent placement out there, so it could be "vreet-air-BAY-ee" or something else.

Vrit - ur - Buy.

I think it's going to vary depending on how we our selves speak. I can see U.S being different to UK, and the UK being split itself.
