4.19 The Languages of Imperian
When you begin Imperian, you will speak Imperian, the common language, and a racial language, unless you are a human. To see what languages you can speak, type SPEAK by itself. To speak a new language, SPEAK <language> is the command. To see the language you are currently speaking, simply type LANGUAGE. Language comes into play in tells, says, and yells. All other forms of communication are language-independent. As you progress in Imperian, you will find ways to learn new languages that you may want to take advantage of. After all, you'd do well to remember the proverb, "He who can speak with the natives is less likely to end up as their dinner." To learn a new language you must first find a teacher, some of the teachers are listed below. Once you have found a teacher you must LEARN HOW TO SPEAK <language> FROM <mobile>. It will cost 150 lessons to learn a new language. The list of teachers who teach languages is below. In parentheses next to the mobile name is the Imperian room number that can be used with the Imperian's pathfinding system.
