Re: A Loop in Minnesota

And that doesn't even touch on the weirdness that was the U of MN Minneapolis campus's Tate Physics Labs building in the 80s. They still had an Atom Smasher and a discarded NASA satellite control station in the sub-sub basement. And three unassembled bombers that were procured for their titanium con...

Re: A Loop in Minnesota

Note that you don't have to remove the mines, you just have the physicists move in to the useful and mostly abandoned underground facilities as they actually did.  You just need to crank up the weird science from 9 to 11. The first task when retrieving data collected at the Tower Soudan mine was to ...

Re: A Loop in Minnesota

Northern Minnesota has the Tower Soudan Mine projects from the High Energy Physics Department at the U of MN.  I can assure you that it was active in the 80s having had my own very weird adventure 25 levels or so underground.  Not to mention the ties to a facility deep under a mountain in France tha...

Alternate setting ideas

Hello! I've been working on an alternate setting for the Loop, one set at Brookhaven National Labs on Long Island. It is a bit of memories from when I was 12 and my family lived there one summer. Oh, and for inspiration/help with local color I've grabbed several yearbooks from the 1980s from middle ...

Additional source material.

"Gortimer Gibbon: Life on Normal Street" fits in so well.  My gaming group is really enjoying watching it mixed in with playing Tales from the Loop.

Re: Hemenway Walmart

My group has had a great deal of fun watching Stranger Things as background material.  Three of us were around in the 80s and one of us grew up, well since the turn of the century. It has been interesting to discover all of the things we took as normal when growing up that the youngster was like, 'H...

Overview of a set of adventures

So I've decided to set the game I'm running at Brookhaven National Labs.  It is on Long Island and not far from New York City. We've met once to make characters, and we're going to play again. I've a long list of places that the players might find useful to summon a scene in. I thought there might b...
