In the Dark Sun campaign setting, there are creatures called "Mekillot" - and I am having the hardest time trying to figure out how to pronounce their names! Is it hard, like "Me-Kill-Lot", or soft like "Me-Kill-Oh"? Or something else entirely?

I have not seen a pronunciation guide in this version of Dark Sun, and I do not have any of the older versions. What is the correct pronunciation?

There's no pronunciation guide in the original first release 2e materials I have. I presume you are referencing 4e when you say "this version". So I don't think there's a definitive answer to the question.
