Novellas and spoilers

Hi

I was just wondering to what extent the novellas involve elements of the game? This will likely affect my choice as to whether I read them beforehand. Do they introduce actual characters or quest elements/archs that might be in the final game, or are they all merely context? Enjoyed the one I read (Gold), but for instance if the game has a quest with fire wights where there is a similar conflict, I would have chosen not to read. Thanks!

The novellas aren't directly connected with the events or characters of the game. They may include thematic links or certain elements that appear in the game, but there's no specific story spoilers for Torment in there. Basically, we want to introduce the world of Numenera and the Tides to our players, without making them read the books to know what's going on or get some valuable character info.
