This paper presents the IDtension system in details.
From a range of narrative practices and theories, we derive our own theoretical model of narrative. This theoretical model serves as a basis for a computer model of narrative, which handles low level narrative elements: characters, goals (quests), acts (including speech acts), tasks, obstacles, values.
Two experimental simulations are presented: the first works on an automatic mode (non interactive), while in the other the user chooses which action the main character must perform. These results show the variability of the generated story, as well as the richness of interactivity.
