AI Dungeon offers infinite, baffling adventures created with GPT-2

Adventurer! Will you attack with easy nobleness, taking reputation points from you everytime you hit back, ten times?

AI Dungeon is an AI generated text adventure that uses deep learning to create each adventure. It uses OpenAI's new GPT-2 model, which has 117 million parameters, to generate each story block and possible action.
