The only problem is that I seem to be adding samples faster than I can go through them. My unread 'hoard' is up to about 500 or so and isn't likely to start shrinking any time soon.

Which isn't to say Nita and the other kids wouldn't run into trouble, but I feel like the whole Dungeon Dimensions issue would be a manageable one for them so long as they didn't have to find out about it the hard way.

You're not the only one expecting to have a rough time with this.

This is my first time through TT, so coming across that section was kind of a fun coincidence for me.

I don't know whether to feel desperately tempted to read ahead in hopes that I'm wrong or want to lag behind in case that I'm right, so that I can at least have company when I get to that point. The fact that I'm still scrambling to try to get fully caught up with the rest of you more or less makes the decision for me, but... poor Memeki either way. My heart hurts so much for her with every thing we learn about her life.

It's a little similar to the concept of the 'dignity of risk', if you're familiar with that? If you're not allowed the possibility of making bad decisions, then you aren't really being afforded the right to make your own decisions at all. I don't have the book on hand at the moment to go back and see how well it maps, but I think that's more or less what DD is driving at.

A lot is resting on what Quelt is going to decide to do- or not to do.

Essentially the objective was to make as much progress as you can, use an escape item to get out with life and loot intact, and use the resources you've gathered to get a bit farther each time. (And make sure you're leaving enough backup resources at home base in case you get wiped.).
A lot of the mechanics here sound fairly similar, so I might be able to offer some general advice if this gets too aggravating?
