(ritual); 1 hour/mana

As an action, you understand the literal meaning of any spoken language that you hear for the duration. You also understand any written language that you see, but you must be touching the surface on which the words are written. It takes about 1 minute to read one page of text.

This spell doesn’t decode secret messages in a text or a glyph, such as an arcane sigil, that isn’t part of a written language.

You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

  • Tongues. You can expend 1 additional mana so you also understands the true meaning of any spoken language you hear. Moreover, when you speak, any creature that knows at least one language and can hear you understands what you say.
