Kegs can be purchased off the shelf at various festivals. Placing them on the ground allows those around to partake in the revelry. In rare circumstances, they can be unlimited with a winner's choice of ale within (see Custom Keg).

Analyze

You analyze your birch keg and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "There do not seem to be any specific limitations."

The creator has also provided the following information:

Custom Keg

Custom kegs are an extremely rare service. GMs offering the service may have different customization options. The list of items to be provided is from GM Kaikala, February 2017.

  • The keg's base (15/15/15), where the noun has to be "keg". Rarer materials will need to be supplied if allowed at all (i.e. if they don't have any special properties that QC will flag as being not allowed for this type of keg).
  • The keg long or show description, if desired.
  • The drink that gets poured out of the keg (15/15/15) -- for example - "a mug of,apple,beer". Long descriptions are fine (but no show). A "titled drink" can be used -- but it will still have to pass QC muster. If you're planning to use player character names not belonging to you, we can discuss that further, as there are sometimes limitations in that regard.
  • 2 standard taste messages. This is basically what your drink tastes like. For the taste messages, you can see below on the two different apple beer "standard" tastes how that looks when they do fire off. Those are fairly short taste messages; they can be a little longer.
  • Optional: 2 additional taste messages for a specific race or culture (and state which race or culture they are for).
