First two stories/games: Adaptive Defense and To Samarkand

I am new to IF development these past few months, though played Dungeon (official name of the first Zork) 45 years ago. I am always looking for new ways to present educational material, so I did a couple of simple stories to learn Inform7.

One game “Adaptive Defense” is very short and simple, once you understand what it is about (11 locations)

The “To Samarkand” is a result of my trying to adapt content I already had. The location descriptions came from my research about the Silk Road (for an app), and I thought that might be a fun setting. The overview art is watercolors from artist and friend Leith Walton. I think it is still fairly easy, though perhaps long. (51 locations)

All feedback welcome.
