Subj: March Ale Promo!

Our new promotion will be running from now until the end of March!

For your first purchase of credits, and for every 100 credits you
purchase thereafter, you will receive a festive green stein. So if you
purchase 500 credits, you'll get 6 steins (first purchase + 5*100). If
you purchase 500 credits again, you'll only get 5 steins.

This stein will contain 10 sips of a dark ale, and will give you a
random buff. This buff will last for three hours, but will also wipe any
other buff you have from the stein.

When the stein is emptied, don't throw it away, as it still has a use!
If you CLINK the stein with another in your inventory, the two steins
will merge into one stein. This will refill the new merged stein with 5
sips. what's more, once a total of ten steins have been merged together
into one, the stein will turn into a keg! The keg will allow you to
refill a single stein with the ale to five sips, but only one per
Howling!

The possible buffs are:
* (drunk_stagger) Increased dodge chance vs NPCs.
* (drunk_farming) Ylem reserves grow faster, and you extract slightly
more ylem for your city.
* (drunk_clarity) Passive curing, identical to purity enchantment and
doesn't stack.
* (drunk_rage) Critical hits will land harder.
* (drunk_brawler) Fisticuffs will be A LOT better.


It also seems plenty of dwarves have gotten their hands on some spare
ale! They are planning a big celebration that will be around about the
Severin Howling (the Sat->Sun Howling, so 0:00 GMT Sunday). I hope your
alcohol tolerance is high!

Penned by my hand on the 8th of Haernos, in the year 385 MA.
