MysticMoon: Hmm, maybe a drunk writers guild?
MysticMoon: You must write and comment on subs while sloshed
MysticMoon: Higher levels require progressively higher blood alcohol levels


Not that I will condone drinking, but I hereby condone drinking in the name of art.

If and/or when you are drunk and grace the Citadel with a work then give us a wink and tell us which one it is.

I also don't want to encourage the stereotype that all writers drink, but if you do, share it!



If we get one submission, will put together a subguild that won't ever make a full forum but still be funny as hell....I think....and it might be because I had a few already tonight. :)

What a fascinating Guild idea! I will join. I have some experience with this format :P

I wrote The Last Tomorrow while utterly sloshed (but edited sober) a few new years ago, and will be sure to write a few more now!

Lots of  clever quips come to mind, but first this hangover must go away!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Once I finish my Necromancy pledge, I shall embark upon this line of experimentation. For the good of all of us. Except the ones who are dead (and not yet reanimated).

For Science!
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

A list of drinks imbibed prior to and during the writing process must be included.

Subs about alcohol in particular, or at least centered around inebriation, should also be applicable.

I wasn't joking when I used the word, "Experiment". Expect to see a graph of "creativity vs BAC".

For the Science!

I think Chaos hit our motto.

And, yes, a list of drinks. I want to know who still sips Zima.

Is Zima still being made?

I am sure there are bottles saved next to the Bordeaux.

I propose making the Drunk Writers Guild a bit of a different beast than the others:
  • Drunk writing is for dabblers only; it's ok to visit the tavern but you may not live there. In other words, there are only individual excursions and no quests. Think of it as a nice place to put up your feet and tip back a pint between quests.
  • There are no rewards. No attributes, no points. Just the recognition of your fellow inebriates.
Maybe a graphic (like an empty bottle with a "For Science!" logo) associated with a "Writer Was Sloshed" or "Written While Intoxicated" freetext? Following that, the writer must post their drinks list and sub link here (BAC vs creativity charts optional.)

Not sure how to fit subs about alcohol or inebriation into this, though.

Oh, for sure. It is more in the category of the Cult of Done and Mathom, just a fun side idea. That is how I put it in the Guild Membership list. The Guild Owner is "Life". And as soon as we get enough Guilds, I will drop them from that list too. Just put them up because i needed a 4th to fill the row.

This is a side-trek piece of amusement....FOR SCIENCE!

I've started using the Drunken Writers Guild freetext, but I've not kept track of what or how much I'm drinking.

I've also discovered that there is a certain range where the creative taps are on, or just broken. Too much alcohol and instead of writing I just end up rambling through Memebase and Tumblr
