    Must share in case anyone wants to figure out their D&D stats. In 2e, INT determines the maximum number of languages you can know, so if you know a certain number of languages, it precludes you from low INT scores. But knowing few languages doesn't make you an idiot; you could have 25 INT and only know one language if you simply spent the Non-Weapon Proficiency points (i.e. time learning) elsewhere. If you're feeling humble, you can count languages you only "kind of know" as a fraction.

    1 language = at least 2 INT
    2 languages = at least 9 INT
    3 languages = at least 12 INT
    4 languages = at least 14 INT
    5 languages = at least 16 INT
    6 languages = at least 17 INT
    7 languages = at least 18 INT
    8 languages = at least 19 INT (kuemper, you're a genius!)
    9 languages = at least 20 INT
    10 languages = at least 21 INT
    11 languages = at least 22 INT
    12 languages = at least 23 INT
    13-15 languages = at least 24 INT
    16-20 languages = 25 INT
    >20 languages = How do you have room for anything else in that head? :p
