I just started playing the beat and loaded the campaign - much joy and excitement. However I was surprised to hear how the voice actor pronounces 'Lupercal', especially as I'm re-listening to the Horus Heresy series.
One would expect there to be standardisation of pronunciation across GW works, especially for 'main characters'.
Horus Lupercal - OK I know some people would pronounce the forename in two different ways and I don't mind but the surname was just a wtf for me. I can't not hear the name said as 'looper'cal' so hearing it said the way it was in the cutscene was really weird.
I feel similar with Leman Russ, I always said the surname as Russ not Roose and typically that was how it was pronounced in the audiobooks.
I'm not expecting they will change this but it seems so strange to have the Horus Heresy audiobooks essentially defining the way a name is said and then other mediums not conforming. I'm not trying to imply I know how things should be said and perhaps this is the correct pronunciation and somebody told them 'hey team we got it wrong on those 50+ audiobooks' - even if that is the case just stick to what you've defined.
I'm really curious to know if anyone else noticed this or is it just me who was surprised at the way they said it?
I tried to do a search but didn't see anything so maybe my search skills need an archmagos to tweak and improve them.
