Stories Tutorial

What is Deep Realms?

Deep Realms is an AI storytelling and writing platform. Create and explore characters, narratives and worlds, together with our AI writer. Furthermore, our NSFW AI writer offers the flexibility to delve into any kind of story, with no filters or restrictions. Your story, your rules.

What can you do with the Deep Realms app?

Have you ever wanted to go on an adventure inside the world of one of your favorite novels? Did you ever wish you could have a chat with a fictional character? Or perhaps you want to explore worlds forged with your own words? Well, now you can!

How to get started?

On the left-hand side, there’s a panel, which can take you to one of three pages: „Play”, „Worlds” and "Gallery".

The „Worlds” page

On Deep Realms, you can create what we call "worlds". A world is made up of two parts: the story text and the world lore. The story text can be any kind of story: fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, romance etc. It can be written in the first person perspective or third person perspective. It can also be a CYOA (Choose Your Own Adventure) kind of story - it is really up to you.

The world lore is a collection of facts, rules and descriptions pertaining to the world or universe the story is set in. This helps to guide the AI when writing, in order to ensure that the story really does take place in the universe you envisioned.

You can learn more about the story text and world lore on this page. In order to create a world, navigate to the „Worlds” page and click on the "New World" button. Once you have created a world, you can then create a "story" within that world. You can create multiple stories within a single world, which allows for multiple adventures in that world, which do not affect each other. Once you have created a story, you can then select it, which will take you to the play page.

The „Play” page

Once you’re on the „Play” page, select a story you would like to continue (if it hasn't been selected automatically). Then you can either:

1. press the „Send” button right away to generate text without any additional input.

2. add and modify the story text via text area and then press "Send".

3. write an action (performed by one of the characters in the story) into the action input area and then press "Send".

Pressing the „Send” button sends the story text, along with anything you wrote in the action input area, to the AI. The AI will then take several seconds to generate a continuation of the story. There’s also an redo button, to redo the last generated continuation.

The „Gallery” page

Here you can find worlds crafted by the community, as well as official Deep Realms content. Many of those worlds utilize the World Engine (see next section) to transform traditional storytelling into an experience crafted by you, the world creator, and the AI. The gallery is a great place to look for inspiration, or to share a world of your own and inspire others!

The World Engine

Unlock a new realm of possibilities via the World Engine feature. The World Engine enables you to create almost any kind of text-based game or experience on Deep Realms. For example, you can create a text RPG, a visual novel, a CYOA, and much more. This generally involves programming, however, it is also possible to avoid programming entirely if you prefer to (at the cost of some flexibility/control when building).
