Tales from the Loop RPG!


Been reading this rpg recently and its fantastic! Recreates the feeling of being back in the 80s again when we were kids. Think of it as playing an rpg that puts you into the mindset of kids 10-15 years old along the likes of the GOONIES and Stand By Me. IN addition it loops in a SciFi element where the kids all live in suburbia near particle accelerators (Think Sweden’s hadron colyder project),,,,,which in turn have adverse affects on time. Robots are also common as well as gravitational propulsion, which is described in great detail of the book.
If interested, let me know and i will loan you my copy to read! The game mechanics are really easy…..funny thing about the game is that once your character turns 16–he is no longer part of the game……possibly turned over as an NPC (nonplayer character) in the story.

The rulebook is written extremely well and the art is AMAZING! Enjoy these few pics:

  1. Cool! Always interested in fictional worlds (specifically their worlds, races, creatures, and machines). Am not sure yet if I would like to borrow it yet (let me research it some more); but I have one question: Is this just the rules or is it the whole deal (excluding expansion packs)?

  2. This is a rather small rulebook around 180+ pages. I like this game alot…..but only because it is written in an Alternate 1980s culture. You have not experienced the 1980s like myself and your father,,,,,,thus it may not be the game for you.

    However, there are a few games that you may/may not like that i can lend you my copy if interested:

    Mouse Guard https://dbrcracing.wordpress.com/2017/04/23/rpgs-featuring-animals/

    StarWars

    if you pick starwars….which one? -F4x4

  3. However, if you still like Tales from the loop—-you can still pick that one. Just remember it takes place in the 1980s and you are a child between the ages of 10-15 years of age having adventures in suburbia situated around the mysterious particle accelerator called “THE LOOP”.

    Here is a sample of what a character sheet looks like:
