  • Your language basics goes up for every 2 ranks or so of the subskills. This continues even beyond 50.

    That in turn does slightly affect your starting success on the next language. My 10th language went a lot faster than my third.

    The subranks as they go will start to reduce your success too. Remember though, the languages still use the old SP method. You want to roll over success by as little as possible. A 95/96 is more SP than a 5/100. Because of this you'll also see a sort of bell curve of progression. You will go slowly in the beginning, until success is somewhere around 60-70 then it will rise a bit before dropping back off under 30 or so.

    My record is 3 ranks in a session at peak times and walking in with 0.99 SP in the language.

      My record is 3 too. That was freakin lucky with rolling all low rolls over 5 success.

The math stayed sound, my rolls didn't seem to be affected. Who knows, though? Maybe it will get easier more quickly as a result. I'm seeing a 93 success now at rank 18 in the language I'm working on. Slightly Below Average memory and reasoning. I wish there was a way to increase those by reading or studying in the Library or something.
        For some reason I still have my first increase on my record.

        93

        That's how long it took me to show my first lowered success with below average mentals I think...

        This post is a pretty good guess on the formula used if you were looking for specifics.

        • [Success: 5, Roll: 83] You slide both hands together near the head of your
          Blackroot war-axe, then snap the haft towards a gladiator! Critical Hit!Poor
          hit. No additional damage. The solid blow stuns him!

          hrm, can't make up it's mind on if it's a good hit or not.. okay... next rotation's sap?

              I feel like maaaybe this was taken out of context...
              But knowing Psilac, I doubt it.

              • You hear the muffled voices of two wagoneers as they discuss someone named Mr. Tyanensis, who they refer to as 'a quiet fellow'.

                I giggled.

                      • You arrive at a wide cobbled road. Nyen, Aezenor, Xia, Parlin, Faewen, Kierstaad, and Kuvrois are here. You are facing west. You see a battered door to a hastily constructed shack of old timbers to the north; a wide cobbled road to the east and to the northwest; and a very wide slow-moving river to the southeast, to the south, to the southwest, and to the west.
                        A thin fierce-looking man and a man with a crooked nose follow you.
                        Faewen is twisting her silver lockpick in a coffer.
                        <Xia thinks aloud: Nerwin?>
                        You say, "Hi."
                        Kierstaad says to Aezenor, "For some reason I kept being assaulted by bandits
                        all through the night."
                        You say, "These guys are with me."
                        A thin fierce-looking man makes a quick stabbing motion at Kuvrois with his
                        spear! He suffers a faint wound to his right arm.
                        Newpatriot frowns to you, "I don't have any open slots. "
                        You ooc to Newpatriot, "Ummmm..."
                        You ooc to Newpatriot, "Are they all full?"
                        Newpatriot asks you, "I've got a man in all 5. Why do you ask?"

                        <01:28:30> "That Gay Dude": Dude, I'm not even gay.

                              • The bottom line is they just want your attention; regardless of what they think they want or they say they want. My wife refers to TEC as my mistress. Had to give up EVE long ago due to a "it's me or the game" demand. For TEC I already let her know which one I'd choose
