Using AI to Run DnD

We start a module created entirely by AI, with AI-generated PC backstories, in an AI-generated setting, with AI-generated NPC interactions—and tell you how to do it yourself.

Image Tools We Used

Location images created with Nightcafe
PC portraits created with artflow.ai

Text Tools We Used

And, for generating and stocking dungeons, we used the old reliable donjon.bin.sh.

If you knew you had 10 minutes to live

Yellow mold! Throwing axes at spiders! Verbal mapping! Failing to open doors! Looking things up! Audible frustration! Our first foray into ADND 1e dungeon delving truly has it all.

Gearing Up for ADND 1e

An archaeology of play for First Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons! Gary says to start play by entering a village, finding a tavern, and buying gear. So that’s what we do. This is not a “best practice,” but it is the THE RULES. Join us as the PCs learn about the area and get ready to head out to adventure.

DO YOU DOUBT OUR METHOD?

“Surely this can’t be correct,” you say. “Surely you shouldn’t start with the most boring part of D&D:

SHOPPING.”

Well, Dear Listener, you may be right, objectively. But Gary tells us to do otherwise. Behold!

1e PHB, page 34

That’s what it says; so that’s what we’re doing.

Dear Gary, I have encountered human beings

Answering questions from Reddit and our patrons: What to do about a bad priest? My players don’t like old school??? Best modules? Houserules to foster dramatic play? Best encumbrance rules?

Also we talk Skyrim and Elden Ring.
