6.12 DRINKING

Consuming alcohol in Lusternia can be, much like in real life, either a
pleasurable or a rather detrimental experience. Many Lusternians enjoy
celebrating a particularly stunning victory with a flute of champagne, or
perhaps just knocking back a few flagons of ale with the lads. A few brave
souls even take pleasure in doing shots of tequila or whiskey, though what
enjoyment can be found in that is beyond this humble writer.

It must be pointed out that the effects of drinking alcohol range from simple
slurred speech to serious alcohol poisoning and death. When you type STAT, the
third line will show you your level of sobriety and the fourth line will show 
your tolerance.

The amount that a given quantity of alcohol will affect you is determined by
your tolerance. Tolerance is based solely on how much you drink on a regular 
basis. To increase your tolerance, you need to get fairly drunk (however, 
drinking to the point of vomiting is not necessary) on a regular basis. Every 
in-game month you don't get moderately drunk, your tolerance goes down slightly.
