Carousing and saltboxes

I've been working on carousing rules for my game. I looked at the Orgies, Inc. article in Dragon and Arenson's implementation in First Fantasy Campaign, went through a few iterations, and came back to something that looks very much like Jeff Rient's carousing rules. I think the carousing write-up he did for his Wessex campaign shows them off to best effect.

In richard's comment to Jeff's Wessex carousing post, I learned the word "saltbox". Excellent! I'm not sure if this is a recently coined term or if it's been around for ages, but I'd never heard it before.

Coincidentally, richard posted a new Sea of O'sr island today.

  1. I've also seen the term "wavecrawl", I think on Zak's blog.

  2. I got "saltbox" from Charlatan at The Mule Abides, I think. It's also a traditional North American colonial house type.

  3. Are you going share those carousing rules. Carousing is one of my favorite topics ;)

    @richard

    I don't get "saltbox"?

  4. "I looked at the Orgies, Inc. article in Dragon and Arenson's implementation in First Fantasy Campaign, went through a few iterations"

    Same methodology, similar result. :)

  5. Wavecrawl is probably more descriptive, but saltbox is funnier.

    @Norman saltbox = sandbox on the sea. After stealing all the best bits from Jeff, my carousing looks pretty much like his with a few additional FFC-ish class-based options.
