Sample text

This is before online game reviews or spoiler-sites and you don't read magazines. So you have no idea what's going to happen in the game. Really -- none at all. (I can't remember the last time I didn't have a vague idea of what was going to happen in a game before I started playing. ) You fire it up, and you're in a little scholarly community called Candlekeep. Your adopted father tells you that something bad is going on and tells you to get your things together and you'll leave on a journey. He gives you some money and tells you to buy equipment.

You just don't see it. When I write it out clearly, it's really obvious to see what you should do: run back upstairs, get away, and let all of your abilities cool down. In 50 turns or so, you can come back and shred the remainder of the enemies.  That's the thing. Your health bar is full, enemies have been dying, the others near you are wounded. But if you do the math and run it out, you're now at your worst part since the battle started, and it's less than half over. You're fine; you can just press "Up" right now and in one move you'll be in total safety.

Frankly, I think leisure is greatly overrated. I like producing things and making the world a better place. But when I don't sleep, I get fatigued; if I don't eat for a few days in a row, my body and mind start to slow down; the effects of not drinking water kick in sooner, and so on. and if I don't take leisure and take a break at all, my mind doesn't compile and recharge, and eventually I'm grinding away through life, ineffectively, uninspired, and not very productive. So, I take rests and breaks.
