Magic Kingdom Buchtama - spelling

Post by Tachyon » Sun Nov 07, 2004 12:07 am

I've seen this nation's name rendered as Buchtama, Bughtama and Buchtgma. After reading the katana characters for it, I think "Ba-Hatma" is a good romanized spelling. What does everyone else think?

I go with the spelling in Knight Flags which is Buchtgma. It may very well be pronounced "Bahatma". For the spelling, go with what Nagano comes up with. For the pronounciation, go with the katakana.

Questions like that are scary. lol I go with what my brain can make out at that point in time. So it's Bahatma that's easy to understand, then that's what I write. If it's Buchtgama, then I'll go with that.

I agree with Nu Suoard though. Go with Nagano's Engrish spelling. That way no one can e-mail you and say, "Hey, that's wrong! It says here, blah, blah, blah!"
