Learning Languages In-Play

  • During Session – Every week that passes in the game is a chance for players to pick up new languages or expand on what they already know. There is an experience number associated with each language a players knows. This number represents how much work they’ve put into learning that language and as the number gets higher their ability to speak it goes up. As long as they player has a way to continue expanding their knowledge they may make a linguistics check (untrained). This result is added to their experience total.
  • Leveling Up – When a player levels up their have the option of putting more ranks into linguistics. Each rank equals 1 language point and can be spent the same as character creation.
  • Sparse – 1 to 150 experience
  • Moderate – 151 to 400 experience
  • Fluent – 401 to 750 experience
