Finding Schrödinger’s Gun
Keywords:planning, interactive narrative, mediation
Interactive narratives are branching stories with events that change based on feedback from participants. One method of generating interactive narratives is a plan-based process called mediation. A sub-process within mediation called accommodation creates new story content when a participant deviates from the main storyline. We show that a model of character knowledge allows accommodation to find a novel class of branching stories previously inaccessible by the algorithm.
