We discuss the extension of an emotionally-driven agent architecture already applied to the creation of emergent narratives. Synthetic characters are enhanced to perform as actors by carrying out a second cognitive appraisal, based on the OCC model, of the emotional impact of their projected actions before execution. We present the evaluation of this approach and some initial results on whether it produces more 'interesting' narratives.
