I'm starting to move a little bit faster today. I did two major fights! Two!
I think I'm getting a little less timid and a little more willing to actually do a fight (instead of spending hours trying to find a non-initiative way out of a situation).
I'm also starting to see BG3 (and, by extension, D&D) as more of a resource management game: there are just lots of resources (HP, spell slots, sorcerer points, arcane recovery charges, channel divinity charges, etc.).
This is not novel in any way, of course. But as someone who tends to finish games with 99 of every item because I hate to use them, it's a big step for me to realize that it's okay to spend a couple spell slots to get through this battle.
I'm also learning the systems a little bit better. I had two minor instances today where I was able to lure some folks off by themselves to quietly murder! It was neat!
In other news, I'm not sure if NPCs will stumble across the bodies of their brethren and raise an alarm or not. So I've started a small Goblin Corpse Collection in a burlap sack that's a little bit off the beaten path.
This game is starting to feel just a tad like a serial killer simulator. I'm not sure if that's what Larian was going for or not, but here we are.
