Blue Rose Companion

All in all, not a bad addition to the Blue Rose line, but this probably could've been included in the World of Aldea. It's a thin book.


LIKED: Magic item creation is better explained than in the core book. Additional options for ritual magic, attuning magic items, and wellsprings. I liked the details of fresh ways to use traditional skills, things I might not have thought about before.

DISLIKED: The sections on character paths seemed a bit forced, like they were trying to use up space. I did like the inclusion of a few new paths, such as the Swashbuckler, but ultimately they're unnecessary, since any experienced player will make their own adjustments to the basic paths to suit their own needs and wants. The magic section could've been organized better, I think.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

A must-have for those who've bought the Blue Rose rulebook. There are a lot of great new character archetypes and powers inside, and it makes an already amazing game even better.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

The Blue Rose Companion adds a lot of stuff that should have been in the core book. Unfortunately, it's almost all rules and all the added background info is intertwined into the descriptions of other things, for example the Heroic Roles, which give some info in the Background sections.

The Companion is mostly useful for people who think the magic system in the core book is lacking. There are new Arcana, and a Ritual system that makes things like Aldis City much more believable.
Also very interesting are 'Advanced Arcana', new uses of old Arcana. Especially interesting are ways to prevent telepathic characters from snooping other's minds without consequence.

The extended Bestiary add's Blue Rose specific information about the OGL creatures as well, which helps using them in the right context.


LIKED: Art and Layout are of the same quality as the core book. As a line extension, this is a great product.

DISLIKED: Too many rules, not enough background.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied
