Will dramatica give me the best options?

Hello, I’m new to Dramatica and I’m trying to understand the concepts. My assumption is that if I give a few parameters of the characters, relationship, and problem, Dramatica will give me the most logical plot (signpost and journey?) and best options to complete the story. As in, if I want to get the best of this story, I should follow the signpost/journey generated by the software. Is it correct?

I’m asking this because I only have a partial idea (a MC and problem), but I’m not sure what’s the best way to solve it according to MC personality and relationship with IC. And I want to use the software to see the alternative plots / problem solving routes I can take. Or what kind of IC I can create whom inspires the best solution to this MC. Can I do that?

Sorry if my question’s hard to read, English is not my first language.

Thank you


I would say that is a perfect use case for Dramatica theory. Your thinking is right inline and you’ll find working with theory perfect for filling in those missing pieces.

Thank you for the confirmation. It interests me that we can use Dramatica to model human behavior/predict the problem solving steps for such and such personality + relationship. I’m still learning to understand the terminology and the example though, like “what does this mean for this character” etc. Hopefully I can learn more from this forum :+1:
