Blue Rose is subtitled "The Roleplaying Game of Romantic Fantasy." What's romantic fantasy, you ask, and how is it distinct enough from regular fantasy to have its own name? Well, I could easily answer that with "Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series" and be more than half right, but there are a few more specific commonalities: magic is an innate force that comes from within, tolerance and acceptance of differences are definite virtues, there's a focus on relationships and social contexts instead of ...more

I'm intrigued by the "romantic fantasy" idea. I thought the setting and fast-play rules were pretty cool, so I checked-out dome of the suggested reading, specifically Mercedes Lackey's Arrows of the Queen series. I found them very enjoyable, as did my spouse. I hope tht maybe, someday, I might entice her to try playing a game of True20/Blue Rose.
