Costs for languages within a culture/race

  • Native Language - 1 pt provides a 4pt skill (includes literacy)
  • Secondary Language - Can be bought up to 3pts and literacy is allowed
  • Other Language - Can be bought up to 2pts and literacy is allowed

Costs for languages outside a culture/race

The cost for languages outside of character's culture/race will cost 2x. Also they can only be bought up to 3pts. No one outside of the Ainu can learn their language. And only Koori and Wangai know Koorian.

Learning

Learning how to speak a new language is dependent on time and level of immersion in the language. * 1 pt of language skill takes 100 hours of consistent effort * 2 pts of language skill takes 1000 hours of consistent effort * 1 pt of literacy can only be learned after 2pts of language have been achieved and this takes an additional 500 hours * 3 pts of language skill takes an additional 5000 hours

Adjustments

  • Living in the culture where the language is the primary language will reduce the time by 20%
  • Dedicated teacher who has language skills which are better than the student and the teacher has the professional skill language instructor/teacher will reduce the time it takes to learn by using the following formula. Each hour spent with the teacher reduces the time by 2 hours.
