It occurs to me now that this may have been an in-character statement. Dani has earlier described his character Prolix as very naive about the world and the risks there.
If that hypothesis is true, how would that change my feelings about that behavior? I'm not sure, honestly.
If that is what is going on, it does suggest that to advance that aspect of the story, there should be some real failure and/or risk--especially to Prolix. I'm not quite sure I want to do that yet, particularly with the implications that would have for the rest of the party.
