The Settings are used to personalize and improve your AI Dungeon experience.

Game Settings

Safe Mode

Moderates the use of explicit content in both the user's input and the AI's output.

  • Strict
    • Restricts the majority of explicit content to provide a safer experience.
  • Moderate
    • Allows the use of some explicit content.
  • Off
    • Disables the safe mode filtering.

Action Scores (Experimental)

Action scores are random-and-random-morality that will be given by a certain bot and will be randomly dependent on your output.

AI Model Type

The AI Model Type allows the user to select which AI model they want to generate outputs for their adventures.

  • Griffin is the free model, selected by default.
  • Dragon is the premium-only model.
  • Classic is the GPT-2 model used when AI Dungeon was released. It does not use Energy, regardless of subscription.
    • The benefits of the dragon model and its paywall stem from the same source; its much larger size makes it capable of yielding better results while simultaneously being cost-intensive when generating outputs.
  • When playing multiplayer sessions, all users will be provided with outputs from the model and settings that the host of the session has selected.

Generation/Retry Ranking

Generation/retry ranking is a filter that reduces the probability of external characters (e.g. Count Grey) and events being introduced into the story on initial generations. It'll not impact any overall distribution of possible answers when doing retries.

  • "Filter" is the main option, on by default, it'll filter out the most reoccurring names like, kyros, dr. kessel, etc.
  • "Classic" does not have any filtering and it'll have the reoccur names appear more, though there isn't too much of a subtle difference when you select this option

Show Do / Say / Story Button

Determines whether the input type button on the left side of the input box should be visible.

  • It's toggled on by default thus allowing you to cycle through the various input types by pressing the button on the left side of the input box.
  • If it's toggled off then you must input the associated commands to change input type.
    • For quick-reference, the substitute commands are /do, /say and /story

Default Game Mode

Determines the default input type that's used for the user- input.

  • It's recommended to set this to your preferred input type to avoid having to cycle through the types each time.
  • The selectable default input types are Do, Say, and Story.

Show Command Buttons

Toggles the visibility of the commands buttons above the input box.

  • It's toggled on by default, thus displaying the buttons associated with the various commands for easy access.
  • If it's toggled off you are forced to input the written commands prefixed by / if you wish to utilize them.

Show Icon Text

Toggles the visibility for icon text, the text will show up above the icon and only in the box that it's in

Determines the 'randomness', the technical term is temperature, of the AI's output.
Finding the 'perfect' randomness setting is highly subjective and requires experimentation.

  • A value of 1.0 is the default, and recommended value.
  • An increased value yields more 'random' outputs from the AI.
    • This tends to have the effect of encouraging creativity, but can also result in more frequent derailments of the story.
    • Higher values are less likely to incur repetition.
  • A decreased value yields less 'random' outputs from the AI.
    • This tends to have the effect of discouraging derailment from the current situation or theme.
    • Lower values are more likely and prone to repetition.
  • Requires Premium to use.


Determines how many tokens, the AI will attempt to output when providing responses.

  • It's not guaranteed to always output the expected length due to certain safeguards intended to improve the user experience.
  • Default length is 45.
  • Requires Premium to use.


Determines if music will be audible/enabled when playing adventures that have a music track attached to itself.

  • A music track must be attached to the adventure for music to play.
    • This can be done via its scenario page or via the 'Edit Adventure' interface when already in an adventure.

Music Volume

Sets the volume of the music.

Play Narration

Applies automatic voice narration of the AI's output, or in the event of a failed input, it will also narrate that.

  • There are seven selectable voices for each of the gendered narrators, male or female.

  • Requires Premium to use.
