Blue Rose RPG smashes Kickstarter goals, pushes “importance of representation and inclusion”


Green Ronin’s plans to bring back the romantic fantasy RPG Blue Rose have materialised on Kickstarter, where they’ve already blasted through their goal with still 26 days to go.

Backers can pledge a minimum of $20 to grab the new rules as a PDF, though lower pledge tiers exist for people who just want the (largely unavailable) older rules from the 2005 version.

“A lot has changed in gaming―and society―in the ten years since the original edition of the game was published,” writes Green Ronin. “A new edition for the AGE system offers us a great opportunity to carry forward the setting’s ideas with the advantage of a decade of hindsight and new understanding, as well as player feedback.”

“Most important, we feel that games like Blue Rose are needed. Awareness of the importance of representation and inclusion in the hobby and the industry has grown in recent years. Now publishers need to follow-through on that increased awareness and deliver games that help to fulfill its promise. That’s what we’re looking to do with this Kickstarter so, if you agree, we would really appreciate your support.”
