Robin's Laws

I bought Robin's Laws last night and read it.

I'm really impressed. This may well kick my GMing up a level all by itself.

It actually reminds me a lot of the way the Design Patterns book improved my C++ design skills. Just reading it once added noticeably to my skills, and practicing the skills that it showed and rereading the rules gave me a lot of momentum for improvement.

I'm currently actively trying to understand the players I know in terms of Robin's character types. It's not completely obvious, but prvides useful guidance.

One down side: it is a lot of money per page ($10 for a 32-page book.) But I have no regrets about buying it.
