"Hey, you! Skeleton lady! Can you hear me? You've got to pull yourself together and run before the Necromancer turns you into one of his minions!"

Rosalinda realised she wasn't dreaming. She was in a dark cave, most of her body was missing and there was an agitated brown mouse yelling at her.

"O-okay," she said. "How do I get out of this place? And... where are my legs?"

Her first day of un-life wasn't going to be easy.

Loved it! I have to admit that I prefer when your text adventures have no combat/stats/hp/leveling like this one here. I guess I enjoy the pure joy of interactive fiction at its best! 

And I did appreciate the cool detachable limb mechanics - brilliant! Can't wait to play more :)
