Re: Common first names

I used the tables for the 1970's for the 80's names. It also conforms to what I can observe myself for that generation. SCB name statistics That makes sense. That site is more or less a census site as well, right? Yup, you can see the exact number who had a certain name, and so on. Sweden has recor...

Re: Influences [Books, TV Shows, Movies, Art]

There's a show on Syfy here in the States called Channel Zero that gets a lot of influence from Creepypasta stories (first season is regarding Candle Cove and takes place partly in the 80s). This show, and Creepypasta stories in general, might be good inspiration for Mysteries, too.

Re: House Rule Playing Younger kids

I think younger siblings might be one of the very few reasons older kids would put up with someone so young. Little kids are a liability, even if they are lucky. They're not strong, they're loud, and usually emotionally unstable. Things to keep in mind while playing younger characters. Very true. T...

Re: Common first names

Wouldn't common names seen in the 1980s be names that were popular to give babies in the 1970s and, for older children, the 1960s? I used the tables for the 1970's for the 80's names.

Re: Common first names

Sorry för highjacking the thread, but does any one know if there are similar name statistics for the US available somewhere? It would be really useful for the US setting, as we will have alternate English names for all NPCs in the scenarios. Try the social security website. You can search by decade...

Re: New Slang - A Guide To The Swedish Language

This is a pretty good list for a Swedish campaign or... and I'd love to actually figure out how to do it in the game.. for a group that somehow goes to Sweden from their country or for a group of Swedish kids that end up somewhere else and have to get helped by the locals. Is anyone planning to do t...

Re: Soundtrack From The Loop

Aside from the music  Simon Stålenhag is providing and soundtracks from movies from the 80s, I will probably be making use of Syrinscape for ambient noises (like forest sounds or towns) to mix in with the music. I usually just stick to music for my game group, but I love occasionally scaring them wi...

Re: The Arc [The Start, Middle and the End of a Campaign]

Revisiting the 80s is a definite step in the right direction. I would have been just about the same age as the characters in the game, so that works out for using memories. I'll probably use the adventures in the books as a template, but mostly pull from growing up in a rural town in Texas. Hopefull...
