Drinking Game / Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar!

Go To

Welcome, Tropers to the Drinking Game for the Avatar Arena!

Note: Archive Bingeing more than, say, a hundred pages at a time is not advised; in fact, maybe fifty is better; I dunno. EDIT: Don't archive binge in large sessions. That's a surefire way of getting alcohol poisoning if you're using something stronger than beer.
