Is anybody here still playing AI Dungeon? I missed this thread when it was new. I found AID recently and it’s quite different now compared to what I see described above. The latest version uses GPT-3 and has a more advanced interface for generating coherent stories and adventures.
If you’re not using the World Info and Pinned Memory, you have to work hard to keep a story on track, frequently reminding the AI what the adventure is supposed to be about. It still forgets important details because it only looks back at the last 1000 characters or so of your adventure to decide what comes next.

I get pretty decent adventures/stories when I’m willing to immediately edit or redo results that contradict the earlier bits of the story outright.
I’ll summarize my recent most successful adventure right here:
Opening sentence I wrote:
You’re on the run from the law because you’ve been accused of a crime you did not commit.
I had other details in the opening paragraph about who I was and the situation but they turned out to be utterly irrelevant, because two turns after I start, the AI does this, with no hints from me along these lines:
You feel your phone buzz in your pocket. You take it out and find a text from your friend, the sheriff: “I just called to tell you that they caught the murderer. It wasn’t you. Congrats!”
This is great news! All of those sleepless nights worrying about being arrested any minute for a crime you didn’t commit were for nothing!
This was generated by the Dragon version of the AI. After playing with the free Griffin version for a week I just had to try premium, and it’s much better. Dragon uses a much larger corpus and allows for longer outputs.
That’s my post; hope you liked it!
