[Becoming] Animal Communication & Linguistics

Image
Animal Communication is a feature of Becoming. It is learned by a Becomer as languages for each individual animal family.
"Doing so must be learned in the same way any other language is learned IC."
Are these languages considered easy on this list of languages so they can be improved by learning Linguistics?

Hi there.

Thanks for the question - Becoming is currently undergoing a rework and, as such, I'd suggest not putting any XP or claiming Knowledge in animal languages. It's an absolute minefield in terms of story and we're making a few amendments. When that's completed, it will be put up for staff review and, once it's gone through all the usual checks and processes, we'll release it.

It is fine to assume that, when you're a cat, you can communicate on a rudimentary level with other cats. However, it is NOT a language and they aren't answering back in sentences. Hope that's clear.

Best

Pegs.
