The Electric State

Simon Stålenhag's art is the basis for the TFtL RPG, but the game covers just the first art book, "Tales From the Loop". A likely future expansion of the game, covering the early 1990's, will draw on the second book, "Things From the Flood", but that's just the Swedish setting. "The Electric State" ...

Re: Weapons

Would you want it to work differently from a normal Item bonus? As there's no hit point system, I guess the item bonus system would work. Weapons aren't just something to inflict damage with, but they have an intimidating effect that varies depending on type of weapon and target. For example, a din...

Defense Research Facility 14

As I submitted some errata for the beta, I tossed in a short piece I wrote on the FOA facility, combining it with some of the info already present. It remains to be seen whether it will make it into the book, but here goes: DEFENSE RESEARCH FACILITY 14 The FOA (Försvarets forskningsanstalt or the Na...

Re: Problems of Setting

I'm for suspension of disbelief. There should be a logical basis for the setting, if only to provide the GM with a framework. Also, being able to give a plausible explanation to the players help with the immersion. Just brushing it off with "don't ask, it works that way" is a cheap way out.

Tips for use of both settings

As there are two campaign settings, and that there's an exchange between the Swedish and US Loop facilities, it should be possible for Kids to go from one country to the other if their parent(s) are scientists involved in the projects. Let's say that a scientist is employed for a year-long research ...

Re: The Loop - construction, facilities and experiments

Some more text submitted for the rulebook; I think some of you might get a kick out of it. About half of it can be found in the art books, the rest are my extrapolations. Most of the projects and experiments conducted at the Facility for Research in High Energy Physics are secret, which has resulted...

Re: Advices to GM for SUMMER BREAK AND KILLER BIRDS

Some buildings, facilities, and suburbs mentioned in "Flood" were built in the 60's. Most appear to have been built by the mid-80's.
