Talk to others using a language you can speak and scrambles text you can't understand, into several fantasy scripts.

Features

Chat

A language selection dropbox is available above the chat text box so you can select which language you want your character to speak in.
When loading a world, only the last 100 messages are scrambled to avoid making load times insane on a big chat log.

Custom Languages

You can add your own languages to Polyglot by inputting them into a module setting.

Custom Fonts

You can add your own fonts to Polyglot, refer to the module's wiki for more information.

Supported systems

Aria, D&D 3.5e, D&D 5e, Dark Heresy 2e, The Dark Eye 5e, Dungeon Crawl Classics,  GURPS, Old-School Essentials,  Pathfinder, Pathfinder 2e, Savage Worlds, Shadow of the Demon Lord, Starfinder, Shadowrun 5e, WFRP4e

Other Systems

Other systems can still use Polyglot as long as there's items on the actor's sheets.  You must add create items under the Language (Foo) pattern, which will make the character be able to speak the Foo language.

Remember to add the languages to the Custom Languages setting to be able to change its alphabet (you'll notice it isn't there because the name on the selector will be lowercased).

This module is my player’s favorite. They love to receive handouts in languages only some of them can understand, and sometimes they chat in those languages for the confusion and amusement of all. Most modules are made to make our lives easier as a DM but this one truly enhances the player’s experience.

Works great, though be prepared your players will forget about it and everyone will end up yelling “Nobody speaks Birdman say it in common!”

I really like this – and used this in my journals, which allows some players to read things and others not. Really enhances the use of languages and role-playing.

Made a video of how I use it. https://youtu.be/acpn0loulnI

My players love/hate this. It sure makes them think more about their language choices, and the ability to use it in handouts is also cool. Finally language has some meaning!
