Kids on Bikes has kids having adventures and encountering weird things. Tales from the Loop has kids having adventures and encountering weird things. Both seem like fine games and I own a copy of each, but KoB has some rules for kids (mostly NPC kids) with some sort of psychic abilities like can be found in Stranger Things. TftL, as far as I can tell does not. This is important to me because my wife basically only plays wizards. Her rationale is that she can be a non-magic person in the real world, so if she does role playing she wants to be a magic person.
Tales from the Loop has some excellent mechanics and I like the setting better than that found in KoB, but I really need some sort of way to allow for some psychic magic-like talents in a campaign if I want my wife to participate. Has anyone here tried some sort of Stranger Things approach with kids having talents? How did you rule it, and how did it go?
