Intoxication

Postby Supplement Four » Sat Jul 26, 2008 5:29 am

Is there anything on intoxication in any of the rule books or S&P, for the Conan game?

I'm looking for drunken and hangover effects.

Dunno about Conan or S&P but there are rules for drinking in Mongoose's Ultimate Games Designer Companon

I've found this area to be lacking as well. Maybe port over rules from another 3.0 game or brew your own 8)

I've always handled Drunkenness with a cumulative -2 penalty to rolls proportional with how much the character drank. Hangovers were treated the same with the penalties fading as the day progressed.

Sounds like a good call to me.

I note, in the rulebook, that "when in doubt, use a -2 or +2 modifier).

That's a 10% penalty or bonus. Looks like a very "well used" rule.

i always figured that that drunkenness should be covered in the core rules (in either 3.5 or Conan)...same with disease..which for some reason isn't in the core Conan rulebook.

I run alcohol as poison (which it technically is) with appropriate ability score penalties.
