The biggest issue with journey chapters is that your chapters are locked behind completion of the previous chapter. The reason this is a problem is
- You are stuck waiting for events to occur (such as the purge, and surviving the sandstorm). This means you cannot progress until the random event takes place.
- You often complete parts of a higher chapter by accident way before you actually get to that chapter. This means you miss out on the cool dialogue and a bit of the story.
My suggestion is to do away with the hidden chapters and let us read the text for all chapters. We still have the suggested journey order and what to complete, but we get a little more freedom with how we go about doing it.
Edit: Or at the very least allow us to see the text for whatever is suggested for the next chapter when we are finishing up the previous one.
