All About the Do Mode

Do will add "> You" to the beginning of whatever you write, and convert any first-person (I, me, my, mine, et.) references outside of quotes into second-person. This will be recognized by the AI as an action performed by your character, and it will react by telling you the outcome of that action within the context of the story.  That means, if you write in first-person, it will automatically convert it to the second-person format which the AI was trained to work best with.

Example:

Player input: Enter the throne room to meet the king.

What it sends to the AI: > You enter the throne room to meet the king.

TIP: To help you get the most out of your adventures, there are some built-in Do commands that guide the AI into producing a better story: typing “look around” will tell the AI to give you a detailed description of your surroundings. Typing “examine ” or “look at ” and then the name of something, such as “the book” or even “yourself”, will tell the AI to give you a detailed description of whatever you specify.
TIP: Due to the way the interface processes input, you can break out of the effects of > by putting in one or two new lines, and the AI will read it as if it is part of the story and not a command to be questioned. (technically, this is an exploit, but we like to think of it as a feature!)
TIP: You can use the above tip to REALLY guide the AI by typing your command, and creating a new line, then typing the beginning of what you think is an appropriate response. For example…
> You look around the dusty room. In the dim light, you see

…will cause the AI to complete the second part, telling you exactly what you see in the dim light.
