Math and languages... something doesn't add up.

Or does it? I'm confused. It's a very minor quibble, but it's driving me nuts...

From the source book...

"For each rating point in Languages,
you are verbally fluent and literate in
a number of languages other than your
native tongue:

Rating:1 Additional Languages: +2
Rating:2 Additional Languages: +3
Rating:3 Additional Languages: +4

For instance, Languages 2 gives you five
languages besides your native one (+2
for Languages 1, and then +3 more for
Languages 2); at Languages 4, you can
speak and read thirteen other languages!"

Rating:1 Additional Languages: +2 Total Additional Languages: 2
Rating:2 Additional Languages: +3 Total Additional Languages: 5
Rating:3 Additional Languages: +4 Total Additional Languages: 9
Rating:4 Additional Languages: +5 Total Additional Languages: *14*

At Languages 4, you should be able to speak and read fourteen other languages, I think...!

So, uh, is the math wrong on this page (22) or am I just seeing things?

Sorry to trouble you folks, big NBA fan and founder here, just a bit confused.

  • The math in the book is correct. At rating 4 you only get +4 languages, not +5. A language rating of 3+ gives you +4 to total additional languages.
