Apocalyptic Carousing: Rum, Sodomy and the Lash

So my carousing laws not based on money or xp as both are fairly unimportant game features. They are for when a player away or characters hope to spend time with wild abandon and risk rolling here for fun. You can roll as a group (possible safer) all solo. Perhaps one roll together and then a solo each for later part of night if nothing too terrible happens.
