The Universal Speech Ritual allows the Ritual Caster to Target the Circle of Power, allowing any characters that start or enter the Target Circle at any point during the Ritual Effect duration to communicate with each other as if they spoke the same language. These affected characters continue speaking any known language that they possess and hear any other language translated into their "native" language. Creatures outside of the Target Circle are unable to understand the languages spoken within unless they actually speak those languages.

This Ritual Effect translates all forms of speech within the Target Circle including private or "secret" languages. The Local Plot Committee has final say on what qualifies as a language. The ability for individuals to hold coherent discussions is determined by the intelligence of the creature in question. Only creatures of animal intelligence or higher may benefit from the casting of this Ritual.

The Ritual Effect grants no characters in the Target Circle the ability to at a later date translate or understand these languages without further ritual magic.

This Ritual requires 1 Reagent to cast as listed on the Scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
