Languages

To learn a new language you need to find the shop selling the scroll and study the scroll.  You must start with the plain scroll and work up to the gilded one.  You can only learn one language at a time, also.

Usage: SPEECH <language> will set the language you are currently speaking in.  Current language choices are Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Latin, Gaelic, Bimembri (Centaur) and Uranian (Giant).
SPEECH INFO will show you the language you are currently speaking and your skills in all languages.
