I have a few questions. It said you only 2/3 pieces of information. But won't you get all three anyway? Also each piece of information moves the clock. You start one one and end on five. So if you have no surges it would end of four. So can you not have any surges on this one?

The information doesn't move the hourglass marker: it moves the "The End" marker one step up, giving you MORE time, not LESS.

Theoretically, if you're unlucky, you could miss out entirely on the vision in the Crystal Cave clue. Also, if you don't take the disguises from the kitchen, you can't get the dining room clue. So you could get unlucky and miss out on the first two pieces of information.

Which is weird because then you could forfeit the chapter, since you won't be able to fulfill one of the victory conditions. (There are only 3 opportunities to get pieces of information and you need 2. If you miss out on the first two, you might as well forfeit...)

This is kind of silly, it almost forces you to get the disguise. You won't want to risk not getting the crystal tunnels clue because of bad luck, even though it's very unlikely.
