That's a completely legitimate point that I hadn't previously considered and I absolutely understand why you did it that way then. It definitely seems like a lot more thought went into it than I initially realized.
No worries! There are so many things happening in the game that I had to pick and choose what I gave specific attention to and what I let players discover/work out on their own. I figure that what's immediately obvious as intentional will vary a lot from player to player, so there'll always be some bits that make more sense than others off the bat.
