From the introduction:
Welcome to the world of Blue Rose, a fantastic realm where brave heroes, gifted with arcane powers, live and work side-by-side with intelligent animal companions. The heroes of the peaceful Kingdom of Aldis strive to uphold the ideals of fairness, justice, and equality, while protecting their homeland against its aggressive neighbors, including the fundamentalist Theocracy of Jarzon and the dark land of Kern with its monstrous rulers.
Blue Rose is a roleplaying game of romantic fantasy, where you and your friends take on the roles of the main characters in this fantastic world, creating your own stories about the heroes of Aldis, their triumphs and their tragedies—like writing your own fantasy novel but where you play the heroes! You may have played other roleplaying games, or this may be your introduction to new worlds of adventure. Either way—welcome, friends, to the world of Blue Rose.
For Aldis, and the Queen!
