We know the names of the classes (e.g. Bookworm, Weirdo and so on), but how do you figure they will play?
I will probably never be a player in this, being the designated GM (our group have a house rule where the one who bought it GMs it), but I'm looking forward to finding out more (next week?)

I´m really excited, i usually only play DnD with some friends of mine. This setting will be quite interesting. 
The classes names are actually non-saying xD. They sound like they will influence your RP more than your gear, like the "Popular Kid" and "Weirdo".
Apart from that, I'm a big fan of good RP, soo im nail-biting until the release!

Makes me think of Maniac Mansion :-)

The "Hick" class sounds interesting. Is it possible to get more information on that? When exactly is the Beta PDF coming out?

Before Christmass, so in about a week! Though there's supposed to be some things missing from it, and the info won't be final. Though that's to be expected from a Beta.

And it's a good thing too, as Fria Ligan can get valuable feedback on the game from the backers, and actually have at least a theorhetical chance to change a few key things if needed.

I will try to translate the core rules to the German language, because some players in my round can not speak and read English well. I already tried this with a different (Kickstarter)game, but I had to give up (different reasons). In Tales from the Loop I am confident that this will work (because I'm a child of the 80's and the setting ist very amazing to me). Here are my translations of the classes:
Computer Geek -> Computerfreak
Jock -> Sportskanone
Troublemaker -> Störenfried
Popular Kid -> LIeblingskind
Rocker -> Rocker [Rocker is Rocker, all over the world :-) ]
Weirdo -> Spinner
Hick -> Hinterwäldler
Bookworm -> Bücherwurm

Yah. Quick question. What are the options (if any) for multi-classing? I can imagine a Jock also being a Popular Kid; or a Bookworm being a Computer Geek also (although it'd be slightly harder to justify a Weirdo being a Popular Kid). Will there be rules or are the Types locked-in?

Small towns, it could be a bit easier for a weird kid to be popular, maybe an eccentric creator kind of deal? Weird but he's, say, an artist or a child actor. That kind of deal. But I agree on the multiclassing! It would be fun to see what we could do with this kind of thing, where I doubt we'll have any kind of leveling system. From what I've seen however, classes might have more an effect on bonus' towards certain skills and maybe even access to certain equipment? It's unclear, and we're all too impatient to wait the week for when the beta comes out.
