This page contains a list of languages available for characters to speak in game.
To speak in game, you simply use the say command, in the format of: Say "MY WORDS GO HERE!". This will automatically use your default language, which can be changed with the check known languages verb. To speak languages other than your default language, you can start your message with a key that will let the game know which language you are trying to speak. These keys by default are listed with the languages below, and are activated with the , key first. As an example, if you would like to speak in siik, the default command would look like this: Say ",j MY WORDS GO HERE!" Be aware that you can change your keys and the activation key, and the list here only shows the default. The language key , can be changed in the character set up language section.
The lists further down this page display the default keys used for each language. However, you can define your own key in character set-up. If you define a new key, the default key will also continue to work for that language, unless you have overwritten that default key with a custom key for another language.
Here is a list of all languages that are available to be chosen in character set-up and their context in the game. When in character set-up, you will have access to a number of languages, and a limited number of slots for known languages. You can take the positive perk of "Linguist" in the Vore tab of character set-up to gain an additional three known languages.
These languages are available regardless of your chosen species.
