Language Absorption

Communication knack

Activation Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Duration: 1 hour

By making a power check against a single target's Wisdom save, you can absorb a non-magical language known by the target. You may learn a number of languages equal to your Intelligence modifier. Languages absorbed in this way fade from your mind at the end of the power's duration.

Permanent Retention. Once per long rest, by spending a Hero Point, you can retail a language you've absorbed permanently. This counts against the total number of languages you can retain using this power. Alternately, you may forget a permanent language that you've learned through other means and replace it with this new language.
