NaNoGenMo 2019 - GPT-2 Edition
My goal this year was to take some random text, character, and location generators and build a basic recursive quest engine.
Let's unpack that. All I want for now is:
- locations - a small network of places, with the ability for characters to travel between them
- characters - a recurring finite set of characters who travel between the locations and interact when they're in the same place
- stretch goal - interact when they're passing one another!
- recursive - the idea is that we have a world... it has, say, cities, within cities are places (inns, bars, markets), within those may be rooms... or maybe our recursion is deep enough at two levels
Eh, maybe that's even too much. I work a super lot and in eight days of November so far all I've done is written those bullets. But let's see what's out there...
So there are some good generators out there that sort of start to do what I want. I may just daisy chain them together... listed a few below. TextWorld world generations is almost exactly what I want, it's just single-character. Hmmm.

Need to run this on AWS or something:

Although it did actually spit out text, so for now I'm working inside this docker.
