Languages

From Amia Wiki

While Amia does not support a language system, languages are intrinsically a part of the day-to-day roleplay.

As there are no mechanical limitations that determine how and which languages your character can know, players are expected to self-enforce their own limitations tastefully. It would be entirely normal to expect an elven druid to speak all Common, Druid, and Elven naturally, or a water genasi to know Aquan, as well as most wizards to know Draconic.

Usually, a character speaking in a different language will suffix a [Language] before their words. For example: "[Draconic] I too, speak the tongue of magic, witch!".
