Interactive virtual storytelling attracts a lot of research interests to create engaging, interactive and dynamic storytelling. However, it is still a great challenge to create an interactive storytelling system from text-based stories for novice. In this paper, we propose an easy-to-use Agent-Oriented Methodology for Interactive Storytelling (AOMIS) to guide novice to generate interactive storytelling system. In this methodology, interactive storytelling system is constructed as a multi-agent system of director agent and character agents. The interactive storytelling is simulated as the goal pursuing of the agents with respect to user interactions and context changes. By viewing the interactive storytelling in the perspective of goal-oriented agents, our methodology is a hybrid of plot-oriented interactive storytelling and character-based interactive storytelling.
