How is "Chult" pronounced? Is it /tʃʌlt/ or /tʃʊlt/ in IPA?

Chult, as pronounced by Wizards of the Coast employees, rhymes with cult. I believe the IPA would be [tʃʌlt]. You can hear WotC employees talk about Chult on almost every Dragon Talk podcast from March 30, 2017 through today anywhere you find podcasts or on the D&D website. This one has a segment about Chult starting at 7 minutes in.

Chris Perkins from Wizards of the Coast pronounces the name of Chult in the video "Tomb of Annihilation: Chris Perkins Talks Story, Death and Collaboration" (around 1:34 into the video).

He pronounces it [tʃʌlt].

  • \$\begingroup\$ The linked video seems to have since been made private. Googling suggests the video was titled "Tomb of Annihilation: Chris Perkins Talks Story, Death and Collaboration", and I found it on Twitch here (timestamped link): twitch.tv/videos/152173106?t=01m29s \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Sep 29 '19 at 7:14
