Abstract

The present paper introduces INES (Interactive Narrative Emotional Storyteller), an instance of the Afanasyev story generation framework that rebuilds Charade, an agent-based storytelling system. The construction of INES pursues a double goal: to develop a more complete version of Charade, by including a plot generation stage; and to show the capability of Afanasyev as scaffolding for building united systems from sources of diverse kind. From a broad view, the resulting architecture is a microservice-oriented ecosystem in which every significant stage of the story generation process is implemented by a microservice that can be easily replaced by another, as long as the new microservice keeps the interface contract established by the Afanasyev model.
