    Admitedly, I haven't played Arcanum in a while, but something just occured to me:

    Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I don't re-call dialogue options ever being different when you're drunk!! Am I wrong and/or has anybody else noticed this!?

    Being drunk decreases your intelligence, so when you get drunk enough to have trhe stupid dialogue options, you speak like stupid.

    I can't remember, does your intelligence decrease the more you drink? Or does it just go down once?

    It decreases with every bottle, the more you drink, the more drunk you get. I don't remember if there's a limit of decreases in one shot.

    It wears off with time. It's pretty neat, but if I could do anything to improve it? Alcohol poisoning. First time, you get knocked out, and suffer permanent constitution damage. Second time, you die.
    It's been a while since I've actually drank anything in the game, I don't remember if it gives temporary bonuses to anything.

    I'm pretty sure strength goes up.

    Constitution does as well, I think. But it's bonuses aren't worth it's fall-backs

    Re: drunk did I miss something

    Try getting blind drunk at Madam Lil's. There should be some dialog options there. I think a couple were broken though. Did I post a fix, elsewhere?

    If you find it please post a link.

    Does it make a difference if you're drunk or just plain stupid?

    It counts the drinks you take, but I think there's another error that could let him give you another one when your stat is on 1.

    It doesn't go any lower when it gets to 1 (obviously), but you can keep drinking.
