    ~BAC Calculator~
    While the image and link do most of the explaining, this is essentially a guide to know how drunk your character is at any given time, how they'd likely act, and with the calculator, how they'll calm down over time. This is only a basic guide and it's not full at the time of writing, not a rulebook by any stretch. I also got most of this from google and asking bartenders IG.

    -Standard Drink Sizes (One Drink)-
    Beer (5%) - 12 oz, 354 ml
    Ale/Malt Liquor (7%) - 8-9 oz
    Wine/Champagne (12%) - 5 oz, 147 ml - 5 in bottle
    Hard Liquor (Whiskey, Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Gin) (40%) - 1.5 oz, 44 ml - 16 2/3 in one bottle

    DISCLAIMER: This guide will be updated as serving sizes/other information is found out for above drinks and others they sell at the tavern!

    Don't RP drunk people if you've never been drunk RL. It's so embarrassing most of the time to see people fall over and gabble in confusion after three mugs of ale. Embarrassing for us European binge drinkers & domestic alcoholics.

    Also, I think the British unit-system is better representation & measurement than percentages in blood-alcohol content.

    [​IMG]

    The key in it is that the stereotypical "smashed" behaviour when people fall over, lose memory and stuff tends to kick in after 15-20 units. So for a day of drinking in your character's life, you can roll a d20 which will be the amount of units they can take. Add +2 if they are male, and add +1 for every body shape (in fat) they are over Skinny.

    Don't restrict people who might do proper research. Telling someone who's never been drunk before not rp drunk people restricts them from certain rp situations and character traits. Maybe someone is underage and thus can't drink to see what being drunk is like for rp, like me, that doesn't mean you can't rp as a drunk person when you have done some research.

    I think despite how much proper research you can do, you’re not going to get it 100% without having experienced it for yourself. Drunk RP is one of those things that I feel you either get it, or you fail miserably. I think that’s more what Ort was trying to say- better to stay clear if you haven’t had that experience. After all, that’s such a minor trait of a character.

    There’s only so much research you can really put into this as well, might as well invest that time into something worthwhile.

    I like the comedic effect of being drunk. How bad does it seem to people that have never been drunk and if I'm doing it comedic-ly is that OK?

    pro tip: Spike your own drink with water to lessen the alcohol content. This tip is only effective if your drink is already water.
