    Maybe the clues go together, maybe not. There is clearly some intentional confusion:

    A famous “character” whose discipline was to cut down a number of trees is a great place to start.
    Some Questors may have been “misled”, maybe you should be one of them.
    The whole thing starts with “T”

    The confusion:
    The number 16 could help you get started.

    ... helping you get started and a place to start can be two different things in my mind like how and where... maybe 16 clue has to do with the direction of the sequence we found in Q16?

    Yes, those are certainly related. I thought you mean the character himself had some relationship to the phrase "great place to start".

    Any ideas on the "born to start" clue?

    Maybe. I can't find any Ts though in any "odd" places that I think it could start at though.

    Is T a letter in the text? Poem? Is it a key? Is it an intermediary numerical result?

    And what exactly spins? Does the ciphertext spin? Does the playfair grid spin? Both?

    if it is "not even born" to start, and "not even" is odd, perhaps the odd letters in "born" are important?

    Or maybe the first key is an odd number.
    In finding this solution we know that we start with zero. Letter A is zero.

    Are fictional characters born?
