    Heh.

    "How am I supposed to remember all this?" was my reaction to some first level 5e classes.

    I've always liked playing casters in games, about ten abilities seems to be my sweet spot and I can just about manage fifteen, although I am younger than you by a significant number of years. But in 5e I either have to remember at least one ability per level or several abilities plus several spells. I'm actually somewhat annoyed 5e sorcerers don't pull metamagic from the same pool as spellcasting, instead of having to juggle the nine resource pills of spellcasting I've also got a tenth pool that powers my class stuff (although I also dislike the PhB Sorcerer subclasses).

    My current character is a Warlock, because of the small number of spells and slots, and the fact I can just take a bunch of passive or effectively passive invocations. It actually works pretty well.

    5e classes also don't get many more abilities at 1st level than some 2e classes (particularly Paladins, Rangers, and Bards), but unlike them they just keep getting me abilities. Compared to old BD&D classes the only ones with a similar number of abilities are the elf, dwarf, and maybe thief and halfling, and there they still come out simpler due to the lack of separate racial abilities.

    I was so physically messed up at 19 from depression and using exercise to self medicate that my mother didn't recognize me when I came home from Uni, even when I walked up to her...I had to speak...to this day she thinks I "had" to have been addicted to drugs.

    always makes me angry

    I've had a weird recurring dream the last few nights. I think there used to be a thread for dreams specifically, but I can't find it and don't think this merits a new discussion, so I'm putting it here.

    The dream is that somehow, when I'm asleep, I'm playing remixed versions of video games in some kind of hardcore competitive league. The one that sticks out is Overwatch, though I got the sense that there were other games as well. The ways it was different included having some characters dual-wield their normal weapons, and transplanting them into other worlds, and there was a real sense of more serious consequences behind winning/losing than there are normally.

    In the dream, I am aware that the games are being played by my mind while I'm asleep, as if someone is tapping into and using my unconscious mind for... whatever purpose there is behind these games. This gaming is, according to the dream, the reason why I've been waking up feeling drained and tired lately (when in reality that's probably something to do with being constantly either too hot because of the summer heat or too cold because I kick the covers off and my bedroom fan makes me cold).

    And the weirdest part is that the whole thing goes through Goodreads, for some reason. I have a distinct visual impression of the home screen of Goodreads, slightly altered to accommodate this weird subconscious competitive gaming thing. It's really bizarre.

    Confession: I found out today that my former "boss" wrote a tell-all book about his time as WI-DOC secretary.

    I won't go into the politics, but he and I apparently had something in common beyond that: the work environment made both of us contemplate suicide at one point.

    Been feeling pretty crummy the last few days mentally and emotionally. Not bad enough to want to post in the Personal Woes thread since I don't feel like this is as serious as the stuff people often deal with there, but life has definitely got me down lately.

    I usually get up at 4AM Monday and Tuesday because traffic is usually heavy those days and I'm supposed to be at work before 7AM, but (Confession) I usually dawdle and drive solo in the carpool lane to be on time (haven't been caught yet!).

    Further confession:
    I get immense pleasure from reaching over the fence and stealing lemons from my neighbor (a police officer).

    Yet somehow when I took an Alignment Test it said I was Lawful Neutral.

    I compulsively betray my friends every time we play D&D.

    Seriously. It's gotten so bad that when I recently stealthed as a rogue during the big bad boss fight, the entire party immediately agreed to ignore the boss and start running spot checks against my stealth so they could knock me out before continuing.
    I hadn't even betrayed them yet in that campaign. Worst bit was, they were right - I'd been planning on usurping the villain's position.
