Abstract. Interacting Storytelling systems integrate AI techniques such as planning
with narrative representations to generate stories. In this paper, we discuss
the use of planning formalisms in Interactive Storytelling from the perspective
of story generation and authoring. We compare two different planning formalisms,
Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) planning and Heuristic Search Planning
(HSP). While HTN provide a strong basis for narrative coherence in the
context of interactivity, HSP offer additional flexibility and the generation of
stories and the mechanisms for generating comic situations.
