    The Cs have it.

    Changing Times Part V

    No sense not trying to make a new friend. You dig through a pocket in your pants and manage to wrestle out your old pack of chewing gum. You hold it up. "You want some gum?"

    "No."

    "Oh."

    You glance down at the other thing in your hand, the bottle of brandy, and clumsily drop your gum on the ground. You think to pick it back up, but then forget to.

    "You want some brandy?" you ask.

    "No."

    "Oh."

    What do you do?

    A) Go home without further ado
    B) [Charm] Try to strike up a drunken conversation
    C) [Charm] "How far'll, uhh, two thousand gil get me?"
    D) Alternative

    Would the malus for inebriated have been -3, had we not had the "Tough Guy" perk, or did you forget to adjust it?

    You know, I think it's for the best that we did not ask for a ride home. I don't think Marcus is sober enough to hold on. And the jackass would probably ride at full speed just to fuck with us.

    We should cut the alcohol completely. Never helps, and we aren't storming trenches in WW1.

    90%. And I feel like this is a good time to remind y'all that Marcus does not possess the Drug Use skill.

    Isn't 90% closer to cleaning alcohol? Or did I just mixed the scales?
