So we are inferring that Sam knows something about what's going on and hasn't told Torg. We also know that Sam doesn't always make the choices that seem logical to us.

My light spec is that he is trying to protect Torg in some way. It won't sit right with Torg though!

I'm starting to wonder if this is Torg's amped-up version of an Escape Room, where they go on a monster hunt -- but to make it more realistic, his memory has been wiped so he doesn't know it's a game.

Alternatively, the peril is real but he's asked Sam not to remind him of the truth for some crucial reason.

"Mushroom, dried" = "mushroom dryad".

That seems like it.

Here's a vague intuition. The notion that Zoë was in trouble was dispelled so quickly after being introduced that it might call for the twist that it actually is Zoë and not Gwynn.

Quite plausible.

A little side spec... Since Sam's brain is unstoppable, could be regain or still have memories of who tried to destroy him?

Probably. He seems like he'd get over that with Torg.

Current question: why couldn't they have worn respirators on this hunt?

So yeah, dryad.

Interesting that treeditional dryads are linked to one particular tree -- but this mushroom variety can use all the local fungi to perceive the world. It reminds me of the whole "many limbs, one fungal organism" concept I've seen elsewhere in literature and in real life.

Yeah, one giant mushroom seems throughout the forest seems like a threat equivalent to Captain Botanical.

Twist: Sam isn't dressed as Riff to get Torg's love, but rather to trick someone in the scary shroom forest into thinking that he's Riff. Presumably for bait-like purposes.

But if that's the case, this shroomy thing would have a pre-existing knowledge of Riff.

Not allowed to harm adult "humans." If she were to begin to realize that Sam is not exactly "human" anymore, and the wheels are likely turning after she saw him unaffected.... would that change matters?

Oh, good question! How human are transformed humans... I'm thinking he still counts as human, but I have been wrong before!

Yeah, that would lend a lot more urgency to Torg's insistence that Sam has to keep playing dumb.
