This is a multi-faceted question and revolves around Nephren-Ka's reckoning which says
Each investigator may move 1 space toward the Bent Pyramid. Then each investigator that did not move loses 1 Sanity.
If I end up moved to the Bent Pyramid, I can spend 0 actions moving away from it as far as Tel El-Amarna, Cairo, or Alexandria as a function of the rule enabling me to
...move along any number of interconnected Local paths without performing an action.
If the reckoning hits when I am in Cairo, I end up moving one space toward the Bent Pyramid and end up in The Pyramids, correct?
It seems trivially easy to avoid being caught there. Am I misunderstanding any part of this? Part of my confusion may be not understanding why being drawn toward the Bent Pyramid is such a big deal apart from some of the time working against the movement objectives of my investigators.
