Chapter 2 – The player
When play begins, say "[paragraph break]In 1878, the American Frontier is still very much alive. Especially so in the new settlement called [Dodge Town]. As the endpoint of [the Great Western Cattle Trail], it is nicknamed the Queen of the Cow Cities. Founded only six years ago, [Dodge Town] is growing rapidly and known as a true frontier settlement.
You are Glen 'The Gentleman' Fletcher, outlaw by name, gentleman by nature. Only two days ago you robbed [a bank in Abilene] and decided to lay low for a while in this interesting town. You have arrived safely, but you have one pressing need: you are very hungry and need some food as soon as possible.
Travelers on the road have suggested dinner in the Long Branch Saloon. [paragraph break]
The player carries a gun, a knife and an unlimited amount of money.
The knife is a weapon.
The description of the knife is "Your trusted Bowie knife. Outlawed in more states than you yourself, this knife has been your trusted ally for years."
The associated image of the knife is "knife.jpg".
The gun is a weapon.
The description of the gun is "This is a rare 10-shot LeMat revolver. The LeMat was a fearsome weapon during the Civil War, wielded by the Confederates. You know, because you were told by the former owner before you stole it."
The associated image of the gun is "lemat-revolver.jpg".
Understand "money" as the unlimited amount of money. The description of the unlimited amount of money is "A huge pile of hard-earned cash. Hard-earned by other people, that is."
The associated image of the unlimited amount of money is "money.jpg".
Instead of dropping the unlimited amount of money:
say "You worked hard to earn this money. Dropping it seems kind of pointless."
