It's never unfortunate that you start an RPG from the beginning That's how they're meant to be played. Choices. And consequences.
When I was younger, I'd be inclined to agree. But with work, a wife, social gatherings, racing and sports, I just don't have as much time as I used to. It's harder to justify spending another 60 hours going through something, when that means a few weeks (If not months) worth of my game time.
