Woot. I have decided on (the outline of) a mechanism that leads to resource management in my dungeon text adventure.
It's a balance of food/stress/wounds, and the game could easily have a "casual" mode, where any of the three systems are disabled.
Disable all three = stress-free no-failure story time
