Tavern Establishment
  1. Acceptance

    Several checks are done when the character enters the tavern and as long as he is inside:

    • Opening hours:

    • Membership:

      Some taverns require the character to be a member to enter.

    • Character inebriation:

      If the character is or becomes Very Drunk, he is shut-out and friendship is decreased by 0.09 (23/256).

    • Friendship:

      If the friendship is or becomes < 1.0, the character is shut-out by the barkeeper.

  2. Friendship

    Initially 2.0 for each tavern.

    When the character enters the tavern after 30 days without visiting it, the friendship may be updated:

    [0.0; 1.0[Friendship reset to 1.0.
    [1.0; 2.0[ 
    [2.0; +oo[Friendship decreased by 1.0.

    Friendship is used by:

    • The acceptance.
    • The welcome message.
    • The barkeeper and waitress message.
    • People reaction when buying a round.
  3. Welcome Message

    The welcome message is determined by the friendship and frequency:

    [1.0; 2.0[ What do you want?
    [2.0; 3.0[1 or 2Welcome Stranger!
    > 2Welcome Adventurer!
    [3.0; 4.0[ Hello {name}!
    [4.0; +oo[ Hello Dear Friend, glad you came!

    The frequency is initially 0 for each tavern and is only used by the welcome and 'buying a round' message.

    It's set to 2 if the character becomes a member.

    It's reset when the character enters the tavern with a friendship >= 1.0 after 30 days without visiting it.

    It's increased by 1 when entering (even if closed or if the character is shut-out for drunkness or low friendship).

  4. Foods & Drinks

    Food is sold by the barkeeper and drinks by the waitress. If the friendship is >= 4.0, they will help the character under the following conditions:

    • The barkeeper: "Friend, you thirst. Let me get you a drink."

      If the character is Parched, has no copper and no water flask: the barkeeper gives a water flask and clears the thirst.

    • The waitress: "Friend, you look hungry. Let me get you some food."

      If the character is Starving, has no copper and no food packet: the waitress gives a food packet and clears the hunger.

    The message depends on the friendship:

    [0.0; 2.0[What do you want?
    [2.0; 5.0[What can I get for you?
    [5.0; +oo[Dear Friend, How may I serve you?

    Every hour, when the characters enters the tavern, 6 distinct foods and drinks are randomly chosen.

    • Alcohol blood concentration is increased by the half of the drink alcohol value.
    • Digestion is unchanged when drinking anything else than a water flask.

    If the character does not have enough money when buying foods or drinks, friendship is decreased by 0.09 (23/256).

  5. Buying a Round

    The character can buy a round for the house for a base price of 80 coppers.

    If the character does not have enough money, friendship is decreased by 0.36 (93/256). Otherwise, this will increases the friendship by 0.27 (70/256).

    The people reaction is determined by the friendship and frequency:

    [0.0; 3.0[A few people take up your offer.
    The patrons go up to the bar.
    [3.0; 4.0[Our hearty thanks.
    You have won yourself some friends, {Stranger if frequency <=2, Adventurer otherwise}
    [4.0; 5.0[Hip Hip Hooray!
    All the patrons applaud your generosity!
