In Rifts, how do you determine the starting percentage for your characters native language? The Language skill states "...other than your native language", so it seems like I wouldn't use those percentages. But I can't find any other mention of native language in the Core Rulebook or by scouring a few sites.

If it's applicable, I'm a Wilderness Scout with an IQ of around 10.

The skill Language: Native Tongue appears on page 304 of the Rifts Ultimate Edition (right above the skill Language: Other), has a Base Skill of 88%, and increases by +1% per level of experience.

Thanks. We were using a different edition and couldn't it anywhere. –  Discord Jun 24 at 14:46

Generally, the character's skill with the native tongue is listed in the appropriate OCC/RCC description under OCC/RCC skills.

I looked there as well. We must be using a really old edition, because it wasn't listed there. –  Discord Jun 24 at 16:15
