Read Write Language Skill

Read/Write Language (None)
Trained Only
The Read/Write Language skill doesn’t work like a standard skill.

  • You start at 1st level knowing how to read and write your primary language (see your species). You also select a number of additional languages to speak or read and write equal to your Intelligence bonus.
  • Instead of buying a rank in Read/Write Language, you choose a new language that you can read and write.
  • You don’t make Read/Write Language checks. You either know how to read and write a specific language or you don’t.
  • To be able to speak a language that you can read and write, you must take the Speak Language skill for the appropriate language.
  • Some languages, such as Gamorrean, Ewokese, and Lekku (the head-tail language or the Twi’leks), don’t have written forms. You can’t take the Read/Write Language skill for any unwritten language.
  • Your GM might determine that you can’t learn a specific language due to the circumstances of your campaign.
