That is, I hope it's bold and has something new. I am skeptical and more than a little cynical about it.
I am feeling very 'ical' I'm ashamed to say.
I'm talking about my upcoming stint as a player...of Pathfinder...
Just posting this makes me feel kinda...dirty. *Shudder*
I probably don't have to tell you, I am not exactly waiting with baited breath.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm no hypocrite. I will definitely give it a try and I am trying to not to carry over any of my previous Pathfinder experiences (OK, experience. Singular.) to pre-color my opinion. Additionally, I know my friend Ray is a good GM, he knows and likes the setting he will be using a lot, so chances are the game, as a game, will be pretty cool.
I am just not...jazzed. Yeah, that's it. Not incredibly excited by the prospects.
I thought of one way of getting into it and it's by being kind of a jerk. Basically, we have one player who never teams up with the others, is always self-absorbed and tends to think he's a lot more clever than he is. He oft times gets himself and the rest of the party in a lot of trouble.
I was thinking of playing that guy, especially in opposition of his (that player's) character.
I don't know if I can pull it off though. It would take herculean effort and concentration on my part to be that much of a smeghead.
I need to find a path through Pathfinder. A way to get stoked about it.
