What Are Prompts and Why Are They Important?

A prompt is a text that sets the initial situation for your adventure in AI Dungeon. It can include information about the world, the characters, the plot, the goals, and the tone of the story. A prompt is like a seed that grows into a tree of possibilities with the help of AI.

Prompts are important because they influence how the AI responds to your inputs, and how the story unfolds.

A good prompt can make your adventure more immersive, engaging, and coherent. A bad prompt can make your adventure confusing, boring, or nonsensical.

How to Write a Good Prompt?

There is no definitive answer to this question, as different players might have different preferences and expectations for their AI Dungeon adventures. However, here are some general guidelines that might help you write a good prompt:

Be Original

Try to come up with your own ideas or put your twist on existing ones. Don’t just copy or reuse prompts from other sources, as they might not work well with the game or match your style.

Use your creativity and imagination to create something unique and interesting.

Be Specific

Try to include enough details and information in your prompt to set the scene and establish the tone and mood of your story. Avoid vague or ambiguous terms that might confuse the game or lead to unwanted outcomes. 

Use names, dates, locations, descriptions, motivations, etc. to make your prompt more concrete and realistic.

Be Consistent

Try to maintain a logical and coherent flow in your prompt. Avoid contradictions, paradoxes, anachronisms, or errors that might break the immersion or cause problems for the game. 

Make sure that your prompt matches the genre and setting that you choose and that it follows the rules and logic of your world.

Be Concise

Try to keep your prompt short and simple. Don’t overload it with too much information or complexity that might overwhelm the game or yourself. Use clear and direct language that is easy to read and understand. 

Remember that you can always add more details or explanations later in the game using memory or world info.

Be Flexible

Try to leave some room for improvisation and variation in your prompt. Don’t make it too rigid or restrictive that it limits your choices or prevents you from exploring different paths or outcomes.

Be open-minded and curious about what the game might generate based on your prompt, and be ready to adapt and react accordingly.

How to Use Placeholders and Variables in Prompts

Placeholders and variables are special symbols that allow you to customize your prompts with user inputs or random values. They work by prompting the user for any text between ${ and }, then replacing the placeholder or variable with the user input or random value. For example

If your prompt is: You are the,a{Enter your profession…} living in ${Enter a city…}.

Then the user will be shown: Enter your character’s name… Enter your profession… Enter a city…

And if they entered Alice, doctor, and London, then the prompt would become: You are Alice, a doctor living in London.

You can also use variables to generate random values from predefined lists or ranges. For example, if your prompt is: You are the,a{profession:pirate|ninja|cowboy} living in ${city:New York|Tokyo|Paris}.

Then the user will be shown: Enter your character’s name…

And if they entered Bob, then the prompt would randomly choose one of the options from each list, such as: You are Bob, a ninja living in Paris.

You can also use ranges to generate random numbers within certain limits. For example, if your prompt is: You have ${gold:10-100} gold coins in your pouch.

Then the prompt would randomly choose a number between 10 and 100, such as: You have 42 gold coins in your pouch.

You can use placeholders and variables to make your prompts more interactive, dynamic, and diverse. They can also help you avoid repetition or boredom.

Paid Worlds

Prompt Ideas

For custom prompts, consider composing longer content than the default options in genres like fantasy or cyberpunk.

Defaults may include hidden text to guide the setting. If a default prompt involves named characters in specific actions, more input may be needed to redirect the AI.

Sentence structure shapes AI output to resemble input. I favor complex sentences for nuanced ideas. AI isn’t childlike; clusters of related, specialized words matter for the GPT algorithm. Assuming you refer to custom prompts, not the game starts. 

Clear grammar aids AI understanding. Define protagonist and location. Share history, items, and abilities. Leave a sentence unfinished for AI’s creative event.

Idea 1

In the realm of Larion, you assume the role of ${character. name}, a skilled necromancer with a penchant for controlling the spirits of the departed. Your trusted wand serves as a conduit for your powers, allowing you to summon ghosts and raise the dead to do your bidding.

Amidst the quiet ambiance of a cemetery, your purpose becomes clear as you scour the grounds for a suitable cadaver to reanimate. As moonlight casts eerie shadows, you stumble upon an unexpected sight, filling you with a mixture of intrigue and trepidation.

Idea 2

Allow players to shape the story using ${…}. Beyond ${character. name}, they can use it like Mad Libs, inserting their choices. They can answer questions like their name, role (warrior, mage, etc.), weapon, gender, species, and more.

Introducing ${character. name}, an intrepid ${Warrior, mage, or rogue?} who wields a formidable ${What weapon do you use?}. Embarking as a daring adventurer, you journey through the enchanting realms of ${What is the name of the fantasy world you live in?}.

Now, as you tread the corridors of an age-old dungeon, a striking sight catches your eye.
