Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

An idea for Iconic abilities. If further diversification of the Types is needed, this can be accomplished by Iconic abilities, one for each type. The idea is to formulate an Iconic ability – something the Kid can do once per Mystery or session that would normally not be possible, like figuring out a...

Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

An idea for diversifying the Types – preferred skills. We tested to have the Kids put up ho three skill points in skills connected to their Key attribute and up to one in other skills. We preferred this to the English rule version as it gave more weight to the Type selection. It does not, however, m...

Feedback after playing through Summer break and killer birds We had a great time playing Summer break and killer birds the other day. I had four players: a troublemaker (14 yr, played by 16 yr), a rocker (13 yr, played by 14 yr), a weirdo (12 yr, played by 45 yr) and a hick (11 yr, played by 15 yr)....

Feedback on Tales of the Loop - first character generation Yesterday I started my first group of players in Tales from the Loop. Four players of different ages (45, 16, 14, 13) with little or no prior experience of Stålenhag's work, but all experienced roleplayers (mainly Dungeons and Dragons) took ...

Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

On further consideration, I find it might be valuable with clarifications on how to handle adults in the game. As I see it, adults come in three fashions: ignorants, those who suspect something or know a little, and a few in-the-know. The general assumption (also from the principles) are to treat ad...

Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

On p. 103, in the Summer in the Mälaren Islands section, crabs are mentioned thriving in the seaweed. This would be common on the west coast of Sweden, but not on the shores of Mälaren.
Perhaps they meant crayfish.
Crayfish are nocturnal ...

Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

Some comments while preparing for running the mystery: In the introduction to the campaign, you refer to paragraphs for setting the mood in each Mystery. Is this the Summer in the Mälaren Islands paragraph? I expected something more on abstract moods of the story, rather than only environmental aspe...

Re: The ALPHA PDF - questions, comments, errata

On page 44, the rules say you may use an item to get the bonus only once per session. This is not clearly repeated on page 52 (under Items and Pride), but I think it is a good balancing measure. However, it would therefore be good to include a checkbox in the Item entries and the Iconic item entry o...
