The SendingStone review

Tongues is a powerful spell that allows the caster to understand and speak any language, making it a go-to for characters who need to communicate with other races or cultures. Its one-hour duration allows for plenty of time for negotiations or investigations, and its availability to multiple classes makes it a valuable tool in any campaign. However, it does come with a cost, as it is a Level 3 spell and requires a small clay model of a ziggurat as material components. Despite this, Tongues is a must-have for any party seeking to travel or interact with diverse populations.

Tongues is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Tongues Pathfinder edition. Want to use Tongues in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
