The house of fiction has not one window, but a million, that there are in fact five million ways to tell a story, each of them justified if it provides a "center" for the work.
Wayne C. Booth [Boo61, p. 24]
The purpose of this chapter is to investigate what needs to be understood about plot in order to support fuller, richer opportunities for computer-mediated storytelling. This will include a re-examination of the definitions of plot, how plots are built and what happens to plot in the unique situations created within an interactive multi-pathing environment.
