Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you may die. None adhere more vigorously to this creed than Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine, lewd behavior, and madness.
After spending much of his formative years with his impressively intoxicated mentor Solinus, whom Bacchus loves like a father, the God of Wine is now a wanderer and teacher. He’s journeyed across all of Asia, through India, and finally back to Rome, spreading the “Mysteries of the Vine,” a ritual involving incredible amounts of wine to lower inhibitions, freeing one from social constraints, oppression of gender, sexual taboos, and the stresses of life. Quite the successful ritual, if ever there was one.
Much of this ritual seems to have come from Solinus, who is widely known to have vast, secret knowledge and the ability to predict the future, though only while completely drunk. The king Midas, covetous of this knowledge, captured Solinus, endeavoring to extract it by providing the scholar the finest food, drink, and entertainment he could muster. Bacchus finally tracked down his mentor in the court of Midas and discovered him well fed and cared for. Quickly, Midas lied, claiming Solinus had been lost and the king had taken him in. Seeing through the ruse, Bacchus offered the monarch a boon. Midas asked that anything he touched be turned to gold. Without hesitation, Bacchus granted this. He tested his new gift on a twig and stone and found them turned completely to gold. Elated, Midas called a feast, but found his food turned to gold in his hands and his daughter solidified at his touch. Starving and crazed, Midas begged Bacchus to remove the “gift.” Bacchus acquiesced, allowing the greedy king to wash his hands in the Pactolus river. As the golden touch left his hands, the river sands transformed to glittering gold.
Of course, the product of continuous overindulgence in alcohol and deviant behavior, Bacchus could simply be insane.
Bacchus loves the drink and as Bacchus drinks from his jug, he becomes more intoxicated, gaining 10 magical power and reducing damage taken by 7% when he gets Tipsy and gaining 30 magical power and reducing damage taken by 14% when he gets Smashed.
Bacchus takes a drink from his jug, increasing his meter by 22/28/34/40/46% and giving him 15/20/25/30/35 physical and magical protections for 6 s. Bacchus celebrates when he kills an enemy god, giving him 10% on his meter.
Cost: 40/65/90/115/140 mana.

Bacchus jumps into the air and, not so gracefully, comes slamming to the ground belly first, knocking all enemies within a radius of 15 feet into the air and dealing 90/130/170/210/250 (+70% of your magical power) damage. If he is Tipsy, all enemies are also slowed by 20% for 2s after they land.
Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana.
Cooldown: 16 seconds.
Belch of the Gods
Bacchus lets out an obnoxiously loud belch, doing 20/35/50/65/80 (+15% of your magical power) damage every .5s for 2s. If he is Tipsy, enemies are stunned for 1s and their healing is debuffed by 25% for 3s.

Cooldown: 14 seconds.
Bacchus smashes his jug of wine on the ground, intoxicating all enemies in a radius of 30 feet for 8s and doing 250/325/400/475/550 (+70% of your magical power) damage. If he is Smashed, Bacchus also gains a 20/30/40/50/60 magical power buff for 5s because of his anger over his lost wine!
