Default Languages

My memory of this is very hazy, but I seem to recall that languages was a real thing. PCs really did speak in other languages that you had to learn, and we would hold "language parties" at zone lines, constantly zoning after 5 skill points learned, or something like that.

Am I remembering correctly? And if so, will it be a thing again?

This was only on the RP server, Firiona Vie.

Languages exist but they aren't at all mandatory or necessary, the only place I know of where they ever were was FV. Everyone just communicates in common. The language system is just for fun and flavor.

Aw man I would LOVE if they made language active on Green.
Giving people a reason to learn languages rather than just for fun.

Makes sense. The only server I ever played on.

Actually, not sure that FV was my first and only server. My memory of EQ is very hazy, and playing on Blue has helped recall some things. I do remember that, when EQ first came out, we had a very substandard computer and MODEM!, and EQ didn't run very well. But I do remember creating my first character, in Surefall, and everything was very dark, and very confusing. I gave up playing for a few months, then tried again when I got a new system. That is when I remember languages being a thing.

This! I'm not sure what the rest of y'all are talking about, because languages are totally a real thing on P99 too.

The difference with Firiona Vie was that they removed the Common Tongue. Since we have that tongue, there's very little reason to learn languages here: as Fammaden said, it's just for fun. For instance, if you learn Gnoll, you can read the Tesch Val Scrolls that drop from Splitpaw.

And also, I've done "language parties" here. I would do them while waiting for Shady Goblin or similar mobs to spawn, because you have a bunch of bored people sitting around [You must be logged in to view images.
