YMMV / Blue Rose

  • Acceptable Political Targets: The religion and culture of the Theocracy of Jarzon is pretty clearly based on the worst aspects of fundamentalist Christianity (though it's worth noting that Jarzon is explicitly stated to be more a society of Well Intentioned Extremism than evil).
  • Mary Sue Topia: Aldis can come across this way — it's specifically designed to strike players with modern liberal sensibilities as a fundamentally good place worth defending. The authors did work pretty hard to justify it, though (Magitek and excellent medicine make it possible for women to have a lot more freedom than they would in your usual medieval fantasy kingdom, for instance), and Aldis is not entirely free from bigotry and violence.
