The freshly sprouted skilltree People is the other half of the now defunct Other tree. It covers all the Other skills which pertain to interracting with other people.

The tree is shown here (along with the command that yields it) with the stat dependencies breakdown for each leaf skill. As mentioned in The Rearrange, this information is extremely useful when considering bonuses.

NB: The layout of the skill trees as seen here is given by typing options output skills = list. If you do this, but then decide you prefer the default table layout, you may return to it by typing options output skills = branched.

You may have noticed, those of you who remember the old Other tree, a distinct absence of language skills. This is because they've have been pruned altogether and replanted to create a bonsai skill tree, languages.

To view the cutting which is languages, simply type language or languages:

languages
========LANGUAGES=============Spoken=====Written==========
         Djelian............. |  44 |....|  42 |
         Grunt............... | 100 |....| --- |
 current Morporkian.......... | 100 |....| 100 |
==========================================================
Neither I nor my alts have done much in the way of language learning since the skill trees revamp, so I may speak with very little authority on the subject. However, as you can see, your list of known languages is shown, with Spoken and Written indicated as separate leaves. I suspect that your list of languages will grow as you start learning new ones.

Below are the commands specifically requiring various Adventuring skills, either for its acquisition, or simply for its more effective use.
