The Teahouse of Colored Flowers

Deep in the terrifying Abyssal Forest, there stands a sprawling inn built in a massive tree, owned by a centuries-old kitsune. Coin is worthless here, as the tales go, but if you're willing to work for your stay, that'll be quite enough. Whether it's a traveller down on their luck or a spooky denizen of the forest, all are welcome at the Irohana-tei!

Summary

This is a card with a modular lorebook. This means you can disable chunks of the lorebook to turn off specific features that you don't want, and the whole thing is designed for frontends that can modify lorebooks with ease. However, you can also leave everything as is and run the card without fiddling with anything. Alternatively, if you just want a normal bot to chat with, use the Iroha fork.

Note:
Most of this card's tokens are backloaded into entries. If you're using a model with low context, you may want to use these lorebook settings:

  • Context %: 50
  • Recursive Scan: Off

While you don't need to turn case-sensitive off, it wouldn't hurt.

Uta and Kana

There are two optional fox girls detailed in this card. You can remove either one by disabling all lorebook entries with their respective name on it.

Uta is a cheeky prankster who gets her fun from messing with the other residents, and Kana is a saleswoman who tries to get people to buy absurd and worthless curios. They both come with their respective language and worldbuilding entries.

Language

Requires: Regular GPT-4 or Furbo

This card has the characters speaking in Japanese—play with the language gap or practice your Japanese output. Iroha speaks normally with distance, Uta speaks casually with slang, and Kana uses professional business language. ALL language lorebook entries are prefixed with [JP] like so:

Even on Furbo, it will make mistakes. Don't take it too seriously or use it as a learning tool, obviously. GPT-4 is also incapable of processing "Character X cannot understand Character Y is speaking in another language", which is unfortunate.

If you wish to disable language features, simply disable all [JP] entries and use greetings 5-8. If you wish you change the language from Japanese to your desired language, it should be easy to modify these entries and greetings 1-4 respectively as it's all gathered in one place.

Note: GPT-4 does not handle all languages equally. Everything except English has poor tokenization, and some far worse than others and eat up an absurd amount of tokens. Also, some outputs in other languages are exceedingly poor. It is recommended you do a cursory Google search to see how GPT handles whatever language you want to play with.

Instruction

Requires: Claude and above.

There are three entries that instruct the bot to do something, and all are prefixed with [Inst]. The first introduces an inn guest into the story, and the second introduces a random threat to spice things up.

Disable these two if you are going into a scene you do not want interrupted. Or just swipe. Alternatively, you can set these to 100% probability and only enable for a single output when you want someone new to happen.

The third adds a little spectator segment to the end of each output, where the characters gives their thoughts on what happened. A glorified inner-thought box.

World Building

Requires: No requirements.

These entries are prefixed with [World]. They give extra information on each fox girl and also the setting. Unless you're removing a character and their respective entries, there's no real reason to disable any of these.

Sample Log

Here is an example output with all entries active, but not necessarily activated:

Alternate Art

I used dalle3 to generate some alternate art (the horror). Download here.

Enclosed in this zip file are 3-4 images for each character, including the inn itself. I also wanted to rename the card to "Irohana-tei" in the defs, but I figured it wasn't worth the trouble scrambling people's JBs.

Cultural Notes

...It's not a teahouse.
