Rank 1 Ability

Acquire Tongue
Anytime you are exposed to a language you do not speak, you receive a check to see if you learn it after 1 week. There is no limit to the number of languages you can learn to speak in this way. The DC for this check is at least 25; languages that use a very different structure or sounds may have a higher DC but will not exceed 40. If you fail this check, you may not retry it without 1 week of additional exposure. Each additional week of exposure to the language provides you a +2 cumulative bonus to further attempts to learn the language, however. This bonus reverts to 0 if you go two weeks without being exposed to the language that provided the bonus, however.

Base DC: 25 to 40, as determined by language.

Success: You learn at least the spoken version of the language.

Failure:You fail to learn the language you have been exposed to. You may not retry it without 1 week of additional exposure, which would may also grant a bonus on your next attempt.
