RoR was fine. The only part that bothered me was the essay at the beginning

RoR is one of the few TM scenarios I bear an active distaste for.

He very much cured that bad feeling with Emerald Mountain.

The message I got out of RoR was more or less that the only way to argue productively with a postmodernist is by bashing him into submission with a big sword. That and the fact that BoA is an inherently objectivist medium, because your goals and actions are set up beforehand by creator of the scenario who, even if he's a postmodernist, tends to keep the party on a very tight leash, in this case denying the player even the illusion of freedom and meaningful choice.

Hah! I'm almost tempted to put that in my sig.

RoR was ok.... nothing more.

And philosophy can be contained in a BoA scenario, and to prove it, I'm attempting it myself. My scenario is majorily religious and philosophical. You can judge it when it's released.

The point of RoR is to beat the player upside the head out of anger. Basically, RoR is to the comments on NTH what EM is to the inflated scores of the other BoA scenarios-- my entire BoA oeuvre thusfar is all out of spite.

ROR is not mean enough and spiteful enough to show true nihilism or spite. It needs to be truly wicked with tougher fights with the worst sorts of monsters basilisks, demons, corrosive slimes, nearly unbeatable puzzles, riddles which confuse the player and other things which make no sense. I would imagine a nihilistic scenario would have numerous unexplainable encounters, puzzles, and stuff throughout to perplex the player. Also some illogical angry diatribes would help. Paranoid statements which a conspiracy theorist might make. The empire is trying to steal our brains so they use them to make super golems. Stuff like that. Go all out for the next one.
