STRIPS-style planning has proven to be a helpful methodology for narrative generation, but certain assumptions about the process remain in use which inhibit the creation of interesting stories. The sequence of actions is more important than the initial and goal state of the world, so a narrative planner should first build a plot and then adapt the world to that plot. This is possible by relaxing the closed world assumption to allow revision to the initial and goal states.
