Appraisal for a Character-Based Story-World
Dramatic story-worlds, i.e.,simulations inhabited by software actors for enacting (not necessarily explicitly anticipated) dramatically interesting plots, require situated software agents with emotional competences. The operationalisation of concepts from appraisal theories of emotion can contribute to providing flexible autonomous roleplayers for character-based approaches that reduce the required external macro-level control.
