Stagnation is Death

Annals of a Bladesinger

 

Arcane Tradition: Bladesinger Rework | GM Binder

 

A haunting melody weaves its way through the quiet forest. An alien in her homeland with a mind touched by the hand of darkness, the elven wizard hones her dangerous dance, ever vigilant, ever mindful. She practices her art not just for the protection of her people, but to soothe her tormented soul with the meditative, otherworldly whistle of bladesong.

I finally built out my goals for my battle log. They are quite ambitious, but they are designed to take 10+ years to complete, if I can even complete all of them. Some of them are more aspirational, but are something to aim for down the road. Now I just have to break a few of these down into something I can work on this year. I think if I work hard at it, I can reach Bladesinger Knight in 2ish years, and Master in 10ish. My main goal is Master level, but I created a Leader level that seems out of reach, just to keep me thinking bigger when it comes to possibilities down the road. It also makes pumping out squats and pushups sound like a piece of cake by comparison, so it acts as perspective as well.
