I'm in a point in my life where a lot of good and bad things are happening simultaneously. I have been a GM for life, and until recently, had the chance to be a plater in the PbP section of the forums. My players and I are eager to jump back into action, but everything going on with me right now keeps pushing this back.
My strongest problems as of now are three:
-Lack of energy and time to prepare stuff (I know Adventure Paths are a thing, but right now, being a south american citizen and having other priorities in mind, I can't make the investment on them.)
-We are only three: my two friends and me, and I don't know how to make companion NPCs without making them completely useless or too powerful.
-We live in different countries, we play using Discord and Roll20.
I really want to jump back. I have many old PF1e Adventure Path Modules, some stuff like Hotspring Islands, and mostly OSR GM-less stuff like Mad Monks of Kwantoom. I just sit down, look at my stuff, and feel misserable, because I want to play but when I get home I just want to rest and do else...
Any ideas or tips?
