I am trying to figure out what languages we are allowed to pick from for Society characters.
I have a Goblin that I’m just now leveling to 2nd.
Goblin ancestry in the CRB says::
Languages Common Goblin Additional languages equal to your Intelligence modifier (if it's positive). Choose from Draconic, Dwarven, Gnoll, Gnomish, Halfling, Orcish, and any other languages to which you have access (such as the languages prevalent in your region).
The guide says:
A character with a high Intelligence score can select bonus languages from the list of modern human languages above or the bonus languages listed in the source for the character’s ancestry.
So with an Int of 18, you would have Common, Goblin, and 4 others. My reading of the language in the guide allows anyone to pick languages like Shoanti.
Can my character know Undercommon? It is listed in Table 2-1 as a Common Language.
Does “...any other language to which you have access...” allow you to pick off that table? I suspect not, because if you could there would be no reason to list Draconic or any of the other languages that appear both in the Ancestry Languages entry and Table 2-1.
Is the only way to get Undercommon for the core races via Multilingual feat?
How about Ignan? It is an Uncommon Language listed in Table 2-2.
Can it be picked up via bonus language, or does it require Multilingual feat?
