On a personal not its something of a a let down to go from a cool 6th level character on original adventures in an interesting game world to a canned character on a canned adventure in a canned world.
The GM is the same , yet , with more actual experience for some reason its a struggle for me to care about the 5e game whereas our sword and planet themed Pathfinder was really fun.
When I rarely missed the PF game I was eager for the next whereas with 5e I don't care and in fact I am near to quitting the game for a while.
It may be a lack of personal investment in my character . Heck I can't remember his name without looking it up or it may be the mechanics or maybe I just don't enjoy playing an Elf Wizard (Marl, my Pathfinder character was a Half Orc Rogue/Barbarian) I have no idea.
Regardless while I greatly respect 5e on the design front I wish I enjoyed playing it more and am looking forward to something else.
Right now I've gota yen for some GURPS I think so when time rolls around or if I decide to put together a different group, I might try that,
If not I may roll back to Pathfinder. Regardless, my initial enthusiasm for 5e is fading a bit so don't be surprised if you see posts for other games. Looks like I posted too soon. Ah well live and learn and as always Good Gaming
A note on my Spider Cult of Mirkwood Campaign posts - As you may have noticed, I’ve posted a lot about this campaign over the past day or so. The reason: my *Adventures in Middle-earth* campaign is starting up...
