I enjoy the early stages of these kind of stories. There is just something I find compelling about trying to meet some of the very basic necessities like food, water and heat. Though of course in this case I completely ignored the need to find water in favour of exploring the plane for supplies. This predictably end well.
I am already getting the idea that in Dyscourse, progress can only seem to come from Rita which immediately makes my opinion of the rest of the party drop. If they feel useless I am going to find it much harder to empathise with them and work to save them. It may be kind of heartless but seriously, give me a reason to care.
