Earthdawn - Who Really Kaers?
The adept learns to communicate with others in different tongues and may learn a number of languages equal to his Speak Language Rank. If he has an unassigned Speak Language Rank available, the adept can attempt to learn a new language by listening to a fluent speaker for at least one minute, then making a Speak Language Test against the Language’s Learning Difficulty. If successful, he learns the language and notes it on his Character Record Sheet. If the test fails, the adept cannot attempt to learn that same language again until he improves his Speak Language Rank.
