And as you can imagine there are posting of varying degrees of interest.
I am on the record many times over on the side of liking Blue Rose. I liked the idea, I liked the play and I liked the system. Sure I ended up doing some very different things with it, but there was something there that I really enjoyed and never quite understood why the masses hated it so.
I have seen some people complaining about this new game and others praising it.
Currently I am in a "discussion" with RPGPundit. His stance is that most people praising it have never played it. I take something of the contrary position: most people that criticize it have never played it. We might be the exceptions to each other's claims, but I do stand by mine.
Here are my thoughts. While I get why they want to use AGE (and it might even be a great fit) I am going to miss True20.
I hope that Green Ronin puts more support into this version of Blue Rose. There Dragon Age products are very nice, but as a licenced product they can only go so far with it. Blue Rose gives them a campaign background and a world to play in.
You can still find all the True20 versions of the books on DriveThruRPG
- Blue Rose - The Roleplaying Game of Romantic Fantasy
- Blue Rose Narrator's Journal
- Blue Rose Companion
- World of Aldea
I hope Green Ronin does not pull these. I still hope against hope that the True20 system will resurge one day.
