ISSTH – Name Pronunciation Guide

Greetings Fellow Daoists! I saw a few suggestions/requests regarding a pronunciation guide for the names of the characters. If you’re interesting in learning how to pronounce the names in Chinese, now is your chance to practice! Madam Deathblade made some recordings for just that purpose….

By the way, Madam Deathblade grew up in North China, relatively close to Beijing, so she her Mandarin is pretty standard, with a bit of a Northern accent in some cases. In the future, I will add audio recordings for the names of newly introduced characters. If there are any important names I missed, please let me know.

  1. That was great, thanks!

    Any chance we can get something like that as a widget (on the side, like recent posts)? Especially if each name had a quick reminder of who the individual was below it, for those like me who have trouble remembering some of the names.
