Simple, really. I don't know how to say "Ys". Is it:

d10-1 "Ice"
d10-2 "Izz"
d10-3 "Yiss"

or something else entirely?

The game is named after an ancient (mythical?) city of Ys. I looked it up somewhere online and they said it was pronounced Eeees. I have no idea how accurate that is.

On a related note, the site also said that Paris was named after it, and means 'Like Ys'.

i believe somebody from ystari said in this forum that the pronunciation was "iss", as in "hiss".

I think it is something like this
yEEEss. With a very light, quick Y sound in the front.
