Corvus Elrod is an improvisational storyteller with over twenty years of professional experience. Whether plying his trade on a theater stage or a city street corner, he has searched for ways to craft stories that are ever more meaningful to his audience. While working to use the process of storytelling itself to help people learn to tell their own stories, he began incorporating game mechanics into his performances.
This led Corvus to begin exploring video games as a narrative medium, and he found considerable evidence that game mechanics themselves are powerful storytelling tools. He is now developing the Participatory Storytelling Model, a critical framework for examining the capacity of any media to share the storytelling experience with its audience.
