Even in cases of passive protagonists, there is usually some sort of an active element (usually a side character) doing the actual job.

Here, the passive nature that should lead nowhere is "fixed" by random elements, and I can't currently consider the wild zone randomness as an active element if non of the characters (as well as our knowledge of that place) make it seem like something unnatural that should be investigated.
Nope, everything that happens can be shrugged off as natural while the real mystery is what's written on a random sheet of paper.
