I've dabbled a little bit (and want to do more) and had similar
experiences. The system really rewards the thought "OK, what can we do to
shift odds in our favor?" There's a lot of stuff in old dungeons that we
never used much at the time, like setting off alarms in one part of the
hill giants' steading and then looting through another part, but HQ
augments make such things very worthwhile.
