Everyone keeps telling me it's dead, that the prophets Ron and Vincent have abandoned it, and that the world has moved on.
Since The Forge closed I haven't really kept up with theory discussions except what was on Story Games, but I haven't seen any viable model proposed to replace it, or thorough explanation as to why people think it's no longer useful. Just that it's 'obsolete'.
So, what's the deal? Is there some new model or sexy theory on how RPGs work? Or some fresh design work that shows how it's all rubbish?
