I Have been having this thought.
I can have a plot progression of
I can look at:
Learning in terms emotion (uncontrolled)
**They learn but there's frenzied action as they gather information **
Understanding in terms of reason (control)
The frenzied activity of gathering information leads to a loss of control/leverage over terrorists in a hostage negotiation
Obtaining in terms of antagonist (avoid)
**The terrorists kill all the hostages. The terrorists prevent the negotiators from bringing back the hostages alive **.
Doing in terms of protagonist (pursuit)
The good guys succeed in driving the terrorists out of the region despite the slaughter of the hostages, the slaughter of the hostages causes the military to launch an all out assault
Learning in terms of contagonist (temptation)
Understanding in terms of guardian (conscience)
Obtaining in terms of skeptic (disbelief)
Doing in terms of sidekick (faith)
Mapping archetypal interactions to signpost type can be one way to unlock dynamics in dramatica I think.
It allows you to clarify the nature of the doing, learning, understanding, or obtaining.
@mlucas let me know if I'm on the right track with this approach to assigning an archetypal role to signposts types to add dynamics to the story forming process.
