This lesson is intended to cover creating your own "Languages".
This LST file defines the languages that may be spoken, written or read by a character. It is even simpler than the weaponprofs.lst file in that it consists of just the language name and a TYPE tag for each one.
The language LST files are where the
tag generates its list from when it is invoked. This file also
tells PCGen, in conjunction with the
what languages are available for races to choose from as bonus
languages based on their primary language stat.
The language file is a lst file that has one language entry per line. The first thing on each line is the name of the language. There is no tag for it, the program assumes that whatever is there at the beginning of the line is the name of a language.
tag is used to set the type/group of the
language. It may take multiple types delimited by periods. The
types used are usually Spoken, Read, and Written. Some
Sign Language TYPE:Spoken.Read
Trade Pidgin TYPE:Spoken
That's really all there is to those simple .lst files.
