Re: CHOOSE:LANG tag and language selection
- One bit of information I did neglect is that I'm working on version 5.17.12 with the new UI, so that will change how things are working.
I've just checked out how the talent Guileful Polyglot work and it performs the same way, the extra language a character gets for each rank of Linguistics is put into the Bonus Languages area instead of the Languages from Skill area. While this works, it's rather confusing from a UI standpoint as you're getting 2 languages from the skill point, not 1 and a bonus language from the ability.

The easy way to implement this is BONUS:LANGUAGES|NUMBER|skillinfo("TOTALRANK","Linguistics") but that adds the extra language under the 'Add Bonus Language' button on the front page, while the language normally gained goes under 'Add Language via Skill points' I've tried adding a SELECT:Variable tag to the skill and incrementing the variable in the ability, unfortunately this has no effect other than incrementing the "Number of Selections per item" count in the Choose dialog box that appears when you add a skill point to Linguistics.
