Blue RoseA fantasy genre game set on an original world¸ Aldea. It is populated by various races including the ancient and mystical Vata¸ the Sea-folk; the Night People; and the Rhydan (psychic intelligent animals). The rules are a standalone system (the ""True20"" system) loosely based on the D20 System used by 3rd editionD&D¸ adding in rules variations fromMutants & Masterminds. There are only three core classes: adept¸ expert¸ and warrior -- and variety instead comes from more and more variety of feats. It also includes a wound track damage system based on a 1d20 roll to resist damage¸ and a new magic system based on feats¸ where spells cost fatigue. The combat system is modified to remove full-round attacks and attacks of opportunity¸ and adding some non-attack options. - A description from https://darkshire.net/jhkim/rpg/encyclopedia/ with kind permission of John H.
