[Resources] The Name of the Rose

The Name of the Rose, written by Umberto Eco, was first published in Italian in 1980 and translated to English three years later. A film was made in 1986 starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater.

I've only seen the film but I plan on reading the book, after I finish all the Cadfael books by Ellis Peters (another monk-solving-mysteries series). The monastic view of the world that is presented in these sorts of books will be an interesting dimension that can be added to any game.

  1. Both Cadfael and Name of the Rose are also excellent for their grounding in the setting of the time.

    I was familiar with the Anarchy due to Cadfael before Jeff Rients started writing about it.

  2. I love both franchises: books and shows.
