Remember all the talks about inns, taverns, and prostitutes? All the good food? Well, it's drinking time as well and I'm more of the opinion that when drinking, as I tend to do when I game, because I'm with friends, it's close to the house, and we're all adults, that we should enjoy our time together and that we should enjoy the drinks among well, friends.
 
Brandon wasn't a big drinker, but even he appreciated a bottle of Patron Silver Tequila I bought him. My other friend Tom, who runs Black Sun Games, also isn't a big drinker, but in honor of B's passing, he had a few with the rest of us drunks.
 
As you, or your characters celebrate their truimpths, have their quaff a few pints of that dwarven ale in honor of those who've passed.
