Everybody's Died

I'm working on a game about adventurers that meet in a tavern, only after the rest of their party has died. You'll tell your tales of woe, trying to get the tavern patrons to buy your drink for you. If you drink too much of the bad alcohol you might die at the end of the night! I'm basing the game a...
