|Religious language of elves, storm giants, cloud giants, centaurs and other ancient and non-human races.|
Note that there are High, Middle and Low versions of this language and those who know one version have some fluency in the others, as indicated below:
Thus, if you are conversant in the High version of this language at rank 10, then you are considered to be rank 7 in the Middle version, and rank 4 in the Low version of the language for purposes of fluency and reading scrolls.
Those who know this language are able to read religious scrolls written in the language. The base chance of success is equal to (rank x 5) + ((WP - 15) x 3) and is further modified by the level of the spell, as indicated below. Note also that rank with the religious language determines the max spell level that can be read.
For example, a character (WP 17) who is rank 6 with the religious language finds two scrolls, a level 1 Cure Light Wounds and a level 5 Cure Critical Wounds. His chance to successfully read the CLW is equal to 35 + (rank x 5) + ((WP - 15) x 3) = 35 + (6 x 5) + ((17-15) x 3) = 35 + 30 + 6 = 71%. If he rolls a 71 or less, he successfully reads the scroll. Otherwise he fails but the spell is not lost and he can try again. He cannot read the Cure Critical Wounds scroll since he does not meet the minimum rank to read it.
Each attempt to read a scroll takes 1 round. If the attempt fails, another attempt can be made the following round.
