Appendix N Revelry Rules for the DCC RPG
Appendix N characters seldom start any adventure particularly better off than they were before, and frequently squander their hard-won money and treasure on temporary pleasures. When a DCC character finishes an adventure and returns to whatever passes for civilization for rest and recuperation, follow this process to determine the results of their carousing:
1) Make a Luck check to see how much they squandered. If the roll succeeds they spent 1d5 x 10% of the wealth and treasure they acquired from the adventure. If the roll fails, they spent (1d5 x10%) + 50% of their gains instead.
2) Roll on the following percentile table to see what happened. Some results are beneficial, many can serve as the springboard for further adventures, and others are simply fun. In any regard, the Judge determines the specifics of any items and circumstances. In some cases, the Judge may apply the same result to all characters in the group in order to better facilitate further adventures.
