Abstract

We present the Affective Storyteller, a narrative generation framework that combines storytelling and emotion. With this framework we propose to address two main challenges in narrative generation: customization, and, reduced calculation time. Our solution is based on the fact that narrative generation in the Affective Storyteller is influenced by an analysis of the emotional patterns of the synthetic characters in the stories. These emotions are simulated using GAMYGDALA.
