Languages

Each language costs 1 proficiency point, or 2 advancement points. There is no progressive cost for learning more languages while advancing, but the GM may put a story-based limit on how many languages a player can learn at a particular point in the story.

Many planets have more than one common language, and many individual languages have separate dialects that can be incomprehensible to alien speakers who have not specifically studied them. The following list includes only major languages spoken by the majority of the members of a single species; by Galactic custom, these languages are often named after the species that uses them the most.

Basic: Also known as Glactic Basic, this is a language that can be spoken by most humanoid species and understood by almost any species. It is a combination of both planned construction and the natural growth of any language that is used by billions of sentients every day. It isn’t the best for complicated philosophy or cutting-edge science, but for everything else, Basic will generally get the message across. (All characters begin with Galactic Basic, unless from an isolated or partially-isolated culture that does not normally use the language.)

Andorian:

Binary: This is a binary-based programing language primarily used by droids, and of course those who program them.

Bocce: A very simple trade language that can be spoken by most species capable of vocal communication, even Wookies and Gamorreans; however, it is a very simple language with limited concepts. Those who spend a lot of time with particular species generally learn their language.

High Galactic: The ancestor of Galactic Basic, this was the constructed language adopted as the official governmental tongue of the Galactic Republic.

Huttese: The language of the Hutts, often used as a trade tongue between organized crime families, which themselves are often controlled by Hutts.
