In this paper we present an authoring tool called Narratoria that allows non-technical experts in the field of digital entertainment to create interactive narratives with 3D graphics and multimedia. Narratoria allows experts in digital entertainment to participate in the generation of story-based military training applications. Users of the tools can create story-arcs, screenplays, pedagogical goals and AI models using a single software application. Using commercial game engines, which provide direct visual output in a real-time feedback-loop, users can view the final product as they edit.
