Today is Pathfinder day, which happens every other Saturday lately. I am playing with my best friend, her boyfriend, and a few other folks he knows from playing tabletop RPGs in the past. We’re playing through the Circus expansion of PF2.
My character’s name is Rendei, and they are an alchemist. I am learning bit by bit how to play the alchemist class effectively, which essentially entails popping potions that give me higher stats and throwing bombs at people. It’s fun to see what combinations I can come up with.
And also: Who doesn’t wanna be a steampunk alchemy-type with high intelligence and who’s trained in intimidation and deception? I will throw a bomb in your face or threaten you with it. Boom, literally.
Anyway, the point of this post wasn’t to brag about how cool my character is. Mostly I’m just excited to be finding my creativity again. The pandemic, personal issues, depression, job stuff, etc… It’s all just been a lot. And my creativity is the first thing that gets sacrificed when I have to nose-to-grindstone.
But it feels like it’s coming back. I’m setting a schedule of writing, blogging, and reading three days a week after work. I’m happy to be devoting real time to my projects again.
Happy Liz is happy. :)
