Correct pronounciation of "Maguss?" (Potentially dumb question) - Starius - 11-05-2016

I was trying to find a definitive pronunciation for "Maguss" as it's intended, but couldn't verify it anywhere.

Is it the same as Magus? (may-gus / mā′gəs) This was my initial assumption, seeing as how it is a form of sorcerer.

But I didn't want to discount other potential pronunciations.... Mag-us? Mage-us? 
Of course, I know English isn't the native tongue of most the developers as well, so are their regional dialects in play here?
How do the developers pronounce it?
How do you pronounce it?

I don't want to go around saying it wrong, and not find out till years later.... like how I used to say Neil Gaiman's name or Asus, for example.

@zatokar said, he pronounces it like 'me gss'. I've adopted that since then. Don't know how to write it in phonetics, though.

Yeah Zatokar told us, but I just couldn't adopt it. I say it like: Ma-gess

Thanks, guys.
When you're living in a world of print, sometimes it's a surprise when you hear a familiar word in person. Just wanted to be sure. Wink

Lol I pronounce it weirdly apparently XD

Mag as in magic and then uss like us.

Pretty much how it would be pronounced in english without any rule exceptions, but replacing the g sound with a j sound.

personally, I'm going with "mah-gus" (ah as in ack, not ah as in open up and say ahh), though I certainly see "may-gus" as well...
