QuoteLet's start with Story. I think Ron's definition here is pretty apt, so I'm going to stick with it. Story has a protagonist (the player characters), a conflict (you know it when you see it), and surrounding events ("plot").
QuoteNarrativism is simply Deep Exploration of Premise, with the emotional goal of Catharsis
QuoteI argue that Narrativism is exploration for the sake of emotional and moral revelation and catharsis. One plays Narravisitically to find out more about one's self. It involves exploring and addressing a Premise in such a way that difficult topics and ideas are floated, and forces difficult thought. That is the payout of Narrativist play, a shared, deep, intense, possibly spiritual experience.
