This is the first chapter of my action-oriented text adventure, which I call "The Birthday Assignment" for reasons relevant to the plot.
It's a steampunk set in a typical western movie - or so I'd like to think. Read it yourself, see how it works for you.
This is my first TA game, so I don't expect it to stand up against some of the greater TA's here. But I want some feedback on how I did.
