You are speaking of Organisation Lore (Order of Hermes) and/or History(Order of Hermes) ?

Also is this a pure ability roll or with characteristic ? :D

Nonetheless rolled a 2 damn!

Edit : my bad should've read more carefully , what i put on my sheet as Org Lore (Order of Hermes) should have been Hermes Lore and i pick House Crìamon as speciality :P

but a 2 still a 2 :( so without a char to add i have a total of 4 :P which obviously mean it wasn't important enough for me to remember , and so must be useless :D

Catalan would be considered the local tongue, more common north of Barcelona, esp. in the area of Calebais.
It has 85% common with Spanish.

Thanks.  That's what I wanted to know.  Servius can speak in both Catalan and Castillian, though Catalan is better.

Just wanted to let you know.  In the coming weeks, I may be slow in posting.  Earlier this week, my father was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.  He's 81.  The forums provide a great way for me to stay focused, and gives me something to do when I'm not at work or visiting with my mom and dad.

peace;
Robert

Sorry.
That was the first time I tried to put an image in a message.  Didn't go as well as I thought.

Be it hereby known -
Herin lies one of the advantages of pbp - the characters don't have to stick together all the time.
Each character brings certain advantages to the group, and unlike ftf, where the illiterate characters have to stand around doing nothing in the library and the whole group heads to the living room to play nintendo while the thief / decker / netrunner / assassin does their thing, everyone can go and perform to their strengths and gather together again later.
Magi especially tend to be reclusive and anti-social, although you are all young yet, and still eager (especially so soon after the isolation of apprenticeship) for social interaction, you don't need to be hampered by it.

Everyone who goes to the library will give me a stress die +INT +Hermetic Lore or Legend Lore. (let me know which skill you used)

Everyone who goes to help prepare the expedition will give me a stress die +PCN +Folk Ken or Intrigue or Leadership (let me know which skill you used)

You have all lived in the Barcelona covenant for at least one full season, some of you longer.  You have all met each other at least once.  There are not many people your age in the covenant, so you would likely know (of) them all.  Some of you may even be friends.  
At the very least, Passing one's testing is a momentus event, and would have been attended by all.  Those of you who state in your backgrounds that you were tested elsewhere have had to prove yourselves once arriving here, unless your Mater / Pater was here also.
(This is why I asked for descriptions based on knowing someone off and on for a season).

  (ooc don't know how GM will do, but in the kingdom where barcelona lies , in 1220 Catalan is spoken , and it is similar to Provencal spoken in southern france , west kingdom of Castille-Leon recently united by marriage speaks a mix of Leonese and Castillan. Not that Arabic and Hebraic language are spoken by these communities and are doors to vaster knowledge than one that limits himself to Latin)
I can't find Castillan in my linguistics database - I don't think that either of the people who speak it will mind if I ignore it ;)  This is not "Confuse-A-Cat, Ltd." but nor do I wish to gloss it over completely.
Basically, if you can speak Spanish, you can also speak Catalan at 1 level less, and vice versa.

How does this sound to my fellow linguistic scholars?:

I ain't no linguist :P
Just read thouroughly the Iberian supplement for Ars :) it is thouroughly documented about history and geography ;)

and you forgot Hebraic as language :P there are many jew communities ( and Kabbalah ) in spain as they enjoys relative freedom.

Oh, yes.. The Iberia book... Have it here somewhere.. ya I looked at it...
I think they made up that language :)
Kind of like the way they mangle Latin...

Let's discuss more important subjects, like how all your research skills combine (mostly) for a total far gteater than any of you could have achieved alone.  Cooperation... hmmmmmmmm...

No no my friend Castillan exists and became the "official" language of spain somewhere in 20th century if i don't fool myself ... it is the spain language variant that is taught in other countries , the one which was taught to me in my now forgotten classes of spanish :)

I say "official" because that maneuver didn't quell regional languages which are recognized ( at least some of them ) the way it did in france ...
