That Robin’s Laws Meme

What RPG Player (Not Character) Type Are You?
created with

Which, frankly, is hooey.

It all depends on the campaign, the group, what I feel like doing that day… Hell, I’d even take exception to some of the language (what is this levelling up of which you earth people speak? How do you mean “optimal”?)

If it was titled “What Robin’s Laws character type are you, given that you play D&D and are inflexible to your game needs / play agenda?” I’d be happier.

      1. Then you can’t be surprised with the result! Robin is coming at it from a different angle from the Forge crowd which is “how do I, as a GM, satisfy all my players’ needs?” It seems to me to rather a more inclusive agenda.

      2. And, given a wide spread of agenda, doomed to failure in time. So you either change you agenda, or change their agenda, or change your group. Or get used to waiting while everyone else gets their turn to get “their stuff”, meaning at any one time, some folks are not having a good time. Lets just say the assumptions of the questionnaire are massive, just as massive as the assumptions of a Big Model questionnaire could be, if such a thing existed.

  1. I hate fucking memes – period But I respect Robin Laws and gave this a shot (knowing that he didnt have anything to do with it) and the bastard result – “I’m a casual Gamer.” – which I find profoundly bollocks, seeing as Im 37, gamed since 14, and own so much RPG stuff that it hurts, and run games on a weekly basis. Id hate to see the kind of people who are fanatical gamers!

    1. You lightweight! In other words, you didn’t commit yourself overly to any question, right? Oh, and if you hate fucking memes…stop fucking them. /easy sarcasm
