How to learn


Other ways to learn:


  • Useful around sleeping creatures if one wishes not to wake them up. This is done by either silencing the area around the sleeping creatures themselves, or around the area you expect to be making noises in.
  • Silence has two incantations: Silencio, Latin for "Silence", and Te Astringo Lingua, Latin for "I bind your tongue".
