In recent years, the researches of human-agent interaction additionally provide scripting or markup languages for controlling characters' facial and bodily gesture, emotion, animation, and speech. The language's users were mainly programmers or animators. Therefore, those scripting languages not only lacked for controlling the whole plot flow, but also couldn't be used by general users. In this paper, we propose an IDML-based Interactive Drama Authoring Tool (IDAT). It can be used by general users to control the whole plot flow through the leading interface. Consequently, general users can easily complete an interactive drama by the IDAT's assistance.
