The Speak Language skill doesn’t work like a standard skill.
- You automatically know how to speak your native language; you do not need ranks to do so.
- Each additional language costs 1 rank. When you add a rank to Speak Language you choose a new language you can speak.
- You never make Speak Language checks. You either know how to speak and understand a specific language or you don’t.
- To be able to read and write a language that you can speak, you must take the Read and Write Language skill for the appropriate language.
- You can choose any language, modern or ancient. (There may be GM restrictions.)
