Using ChatGPT as a Solo RPG Referee (Ellie V And The Valkyries - Redux)
I knew it was going to happen. Eventually, I was going to run out of credits on AI Dungeon and I didn't feel like paying another monthly fee for another service. Netflix, Disney, Paramount, Patreon, ugh. I need to budget better.So I thought, why not pop over to OpenAI and see if I can get ChatGPT 3.5 (currently free) to run as an RPG referee for me. To test it, I decided to give it all the same parameters I gave to AI Dungeon for my Ellie V And The Valkyries run, including going over basically the same storyline. I wanted to compare the two narratives to see which one I preferred more. Straight up ChatGPT or AI Dungeon running ChatGPT.
Me: Hello ChatGPT, are you capable of being a referee or guide for a roleplaying game?
Hello! Yes, I can certainly assist as a referee or guide for a roleplaying game. I can help you create and describe game worlds, non-player characters (NPCs), and scenarios, as well as facilitate gameplay by providing responses and resolving actions based on the rules of your chosen system. Just let me know the details of the game, its setting, and any specific rules or guidelines you'd like to follow, and I'll do my best to assist you and your players in your roleplaying adventure. How can I assist you with your game?
Me: I'd like you to be the referee for a game where my character is Ellie V. Ellie V is a Rockergirl living in the city of Night City. I have an electric guitar and a smartphone. I am the lead singer and lead guitarist of a four woman band called The Valkyries. We are known for our fiery, loud, riotous and chaotic rock concerts.
Sounds like an exciting character and setting! Let's begin your adventure in the dystopian world of Cyberpunk 2077. You are Ellie V, the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Valkyries, a famous rock band in Night City known for your fiery and chaotic concerts.
You find yourself in the heart of Night City, a sprawling, neon-lit metropolis filled with all manner of people and technology. The city's streets are bustling with activity, and the skyline is dominated by towering skyscrapers and holographic billboards.
As Ellie V, you stand outside a seedy but well-known bar and music venue called "Chrome Haven." The Valkyries are scheduled to perform here tonight, and you can hear the muffled sounds of your bandmates tuning their instruments inside. Your electric guitar is strapped to your back, and your smartphone is in your pocket. The screen lights up with a message: "Soundcheck in 30 minutes."
What would you like to do next, Ellie V?
Me: I go inside Chrome Haven and check in with all three of my bandmates. How are they doing? Are they ready to go?
You step into Chrome Haven, and the familiar chaos of pre-concert preparations fills the air. Your bandmates, Axia, Luna, and Seraph, are scattered around the venue, each deep in their own preparations.
Axia, the band's bassist, is busy tuning her instrument. She looks up when you approach, flashes a grin, and says, "Ellie, you ready to rock the hell out of this place tonight?"
Luna, the drummer, is making final adjustments to her drum kit. She nods and gives you a thumbs-up. "The crowd's gonna love it when we start pounding those beats, Ellie!"
Seraph, the keyboardist, is hunched over her synth, making sure the electronic elements of your music are perfectly tuned. She looks up with a determined expression and says, "Just a few more tweaks, and we'll be ready to set this place on fire!"
The rest of the crew, including your roadies and sound engineers, are bustling around, ensuring everything is set up correctly. The stage is ready, and the crowd is starting to gather.
What would you like to do next, Ellie V?
Me: I high five Axia, fist bump Luna, give a thumbs up to Seraph and then sit down and start to check my own gear. I get my electric guitar all tuned up and then I start to strum something slow as part of the soundcheck, something by Johnny Silverhand.
You exchange gestures with your bandmates, each interaction fueling the energy and excitement for the upcoming show. As you settle down and start strumming your electric guitar, you begin to play a slow, haunting melody, a classic by the legendary rockerboy Johnny Silverhand.

With a rebel heart, I'll make you mine.
I've got lightning in my veins,
A wild fire that can't be tamed,
In this concrete jungle's endless fight,
I'll be your spark, your guiding light.
Electric vixen, don't you see,
I'm the fire that'll set you free,
In this city's heart, where danger thrives,
I'll be the one who makes you feel alive.
Through the alleys and the neon glow,
Where the shadows dance and secrets flow,
I'm an electric vixen, fierce and bold,
In this concrete jungle, we'll find our gold.
I've got lightning in my veins,
A wild fire that can't be tamed,
In this concrete jungle's endless fight,
I'll be your spark, your guiding light.
Electric vixen, don't you see,
I'm the fire that'll set you free,
In this city's heart, where danger thrives,
I'll be the one who makes you feel alive.
With every riff, with every scream,
We'll live this night like it's a dream,
In the chaos of the urban scene,
We'll be the rebels, we'll be the queens.
Electric vixen, don't you see,
I'm the fire that'll set you free,
In this city's heart, where danger thrives,
I'll be the one who makes you feel alive.
In the neon city, we'll unite,
In the electrifying, endless night,
I'm your electric vixen, your guiding star,
Together, we'll burn like there's no tomorrow.

Me: I grin at Max, wide and mischievous. "We are Night City, Max! We are the people, and we will not be treated as slaves. We will not be exploited. The technology that corporations hoard can be harnessed to give a better life for everybody, but instead that same technology is used to oppress us all. It's even used to oppress corporate stooges like you and this whole news outlet. What are you going to do about it, slave? You going to stand up like us and burn this shit down or are you going to keep licking the boot like the rest of your staff?"
