Experience Point Chart

A cross-reference chart of characters and languages for the Nova Semitae Saga.

Helpful reference: Languages of Mythic Europe

Per the Language ability (ArM 5, p. 66) there is no roll. After the penalty is applied, reference the chart to see what level of communication is achieved based on the lowest score of the speakers.

Score Fluency
0 Point and greet. With one or more experience points, you know "please", "thank you" and a few other words.
1 Basic questions and answers. "Where is the church?", "Do you sell food?" Constant mistakes, and an atrocious accent. People must speak slowly and often repeat themselves, and you cannot string a conversation together. Contrary to popular belief, speaking loudly does not convey a +1 to comprehensibility.
2 Basic conversation. You can sustain a short conversation on a common topic. You still make many mistakes and often fail to catch what others say.
3 Haltingly functional. You can hold a conversation on everyday topics, although it takes time, you make many mistakes and your accent is still bad.
4 Functional. You can hold a conversation on non-technical topics, and make few mistakes. People do not normally need to repeat themselves. This is the minimum level required to study from a book.
5 Fluent. You still have an accent if this is not your native language, but it is weak. You speak as well as most natives. This is the minimum level to write a book.
6+ Elegant. You choose your words well, and have no accent if this is not your native language.
