Language Point Buy is part of the Proficiency System. Its Packs allow a Character to learn languages. It has some additional rules: a Character can only ever have one Linguist Pack, the contents of which sometimes overlap, because languages exist in multiple places. As stated on the Application Template, even if they don't invest in Language Point Buy, all Characters get Common and one native language for free.
