Why is this still in a sandbox? It looks good enough to me to be put up on a variant rules page or other page. Even if your not done with it yet, it's complete enough to move until you finish it up. :)... unless you don't want this posted for some unknown reason... --Vrail 05:35, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I was talking with Jazzman about it, and I was unsure if it is appropriate for the wiki. I may ask Green Dragon about it, and see what he thinks. So for now, it lives here. But yeah, it is pretty much finished, although I think it needs more play-testing... ;) --Badger 05:45, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Ohhh, I could play test it too! :P Anyways, you do make it clear that players must preset boundaries, as the goal is not to get drunk. I don't think this is encouraging poor judgment and there are other pages that I would consider worse (in the regard of being allowable on a public wiki). So I'm standing on the point that it's fine, but ya, it would be a good idea to ask first just in case. :) --Vrail 05:51, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, to be fair, you certainly can play to get drunk, but that presents a whole new set of problems. A drunk wizard adding up 10d6 is rough, but a drunk barbarian trying to figure out what his bonuses are for flanking while raging with his favored weapon against a prone creature can take days. Grappling, which sober is more complicated than it needs to be, gets even worse when the drunk DM is saying "No yeah, he's got a BAB of like leventy. Trust me, you're grappled. Drink up! Ohh, me too!". I used words like "tipsy" instead of "drunk" not because drinking to be drunk is bad (it is), but because DnD drunk makes for great stories, but terrible gameplay. I'm pretty sure we stopped using dice and started just making up numbers the first time we played (before I learned tipsy is better than drunk)... --Badger 05:57, 8 June 2010 (UTC)


I was reading this over again, and two of the variant rules, the meat grinder and shuffle variant could actually be kind of fun even removing the drinking aspect. Ever thought of expanding on those and making them variant rules by themselves, without drinking? --Vrail 13:01, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

I think I may work on a series of variant rules that don't involve drinking. Because I don't think those two each deserve their own page, and a page saying "trade sheets with someone else for a new way to play" seems kinda lame. I'll try and think of a few more, then post a page like "DnD with a twist: Ways to shake up your DnD experience". Naturally, suggestions are welcome. --Badger 18:50, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
