  • Gnomish
  • Klatchian

When this ritual is performed, its priest is granted the gift of tongues, the ability to speak in and understand a multitude of foreign languages.


> perform tongues

You kneel and spread your arms in benediction.
You pray for the Apostles' Gift.
Loudly now, you chant the names of Sandelfon in the many languages of the Discworld.
You humbly request the power to spread Sandelfon's Word.
The buzzing sound of a thousand voices speaking at once fills your mind, but somehow, you can understand each clearly and distinctly, no matter which language they're speaking.
