Rules for Drinking
When drinking alcohol, characters can become intoxicated. The following rules cover these situations.
Each alcoholic drink is assigned a numeric potency value. Whenever a character consumes a drink they must add the potency value to their intoxication value.
Base Intoxication threshold for races:
|Race||Base Intoxication Threshold|
*Add +1 threshold for each body (temporary or permanent) beyond the racial base
Effects of Intoxication:
x2 cost for all ability-based (DEX, END, PRE) skills
-1 damage to all weapon strikes, including ranged
Unable to cast/invoke any spell/prayer over rank 2

|In-Game Drink||Soda Type||Potency|

|Elven Wine||Cherry/Black Cherry||2|
|Orcish Blood Wine||Code Red||3|
|Sethen Rau Th’deen||Mt. Lightning/Mt. Dew||3|

Examples of becoming intoxicated
When a character receives an intoxication equal to one-half (round down) or more of their intoxication threshold, they become intoxicated and must role-play the appropriate effects. If a human with a base intoxication threshold of 8 and has no additional body drinks 4 Ales, they will become drunk. If a true elf, with a base intoxication threshold of 6, but has purchased up to Body +6, drink 5 Ales, they may roleplay being tipsy, but they are not drunk since they only have an intoxication value of 5, while they have a threshold of 12. The character is also subject to additional limitations as listed below. They will regain sobriety when Drunk Points fall below one-half of his/her max Body.
When a character receives an intoxication value equal to their intoxication threshold, they pass into unconsciousness. They will regain consciousness when Drunk Points fall below his/her intoxication threshold. Your intoxication value is reduced at the rate of one point per hour. Therefore, a character will remain passed out for one full hour before regaining consciousness (though they will remain intoxicated a bit longer.)
