Wind's End is an experiment in interactive story generation in which stories are created from sequences of independent yet often cohesive non-player character goals. A Drama Manager controls the evaluation of these goals within a given frame of increasing dramatic intensity. The player may interact with non-player characters through combat or an objective-based conversation system, and affect the story as desired. The goals for this MQP were to implement interactive story generation and to create an engaging, re-playable game.
