Tales From the Loop RPG Starter Set

Free League Publishing has announced a new Starter Set for the multiple award-winning Tales From the Loop tabletop RPG. The new Starter Set is both available as a physical boxed set and in digital format, as an official module on the Roll20 online platform. This launch is the first step in Free League’s new initiative to support virtual tabletop gaming for all of its titles.

The new boxed set, containing a new scenario called The Recycled Boy, can be found on the Free League website, at the Roll20 marketplace, and in select retail stores worldwide. It’s also available in PDF format at DrivethruRPG.

The Tales From the Loop roleplaying game, based on the wondrous worlds of author and visual artist Simon Stålenhag, was released in 2017 and was a big hit, winning no less than five Gold ENnies, including Best Game and Product of the Year. The game is Free League Publishing’s best-selling title to date.

Stålenhag’s narrative art books Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood feature a vision of an alternate Scandinavia in the 1980s and ‘90s where technology has invaded the tranquil landscapes to form an entirely new universe of the eerie and the nostalgic. In April, a tv series based on Stålenhag’s work was launched on Amazon Prime Video.

In the Tales From the Loop RPG, players take the roles of teenagers solving spectacular mysteries connected to the Loop – a huge and mysterious underground particle generator.

The new Starter Set is the ideal starting point for roleplayers who want to step into the world of the Loop. The boxed set contains everything players need to get started:

  • An illustrated rulebook explaining how to play the game
  • The complete adventure called The Recycled Boy
  • Five pre-generated characters ready to play
  • A large, full-color map of land of the Loop
  • Ten engraved custom dice

The Roll20 edition is fully integrated with the VTT platform, and contains maps with GM layer information to maximize ease of use.

The Kickstarter for Tales From the Loop – The Board Game was launched today by Free League Publishing. The game, based on the universe created by artist and author Simon Stålenhag was recently adapted to a tv series on Amazon Prime Video, offers cooperative gameplay using robot miniatures by Paolo Parente’s Dust Studio. A complete Print ‘n Play kit can be downloaded for free from the Kickstarter.

Simon Stålenhag is the internationally lauded artist and author of Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood, narrative art books published by Free League that stunned the world with a vision of an alternate Scandinavia in the 1980s and ‘90s, where technology invaded tranquil landscapes to form an entirely new universe of the eerie and the nostalgic.

In 2017, Free League published a tabletop roleplaying game based on Tales From the Loop, which went on to win five Gold ENnie Awards, including Best Game and Product of the Year. A tv series adaptation of Tales From the Loop launched just a few days ago on Amazon Prime Video.

Tales From the Loop – The Board Game lets players take another step into the amazing world of the Loop. In the 1-5 players take the roles of teenagers who investigate the mysteries originating from the Loop, a huge underground science facility with strange effects on the suburban landscapes around it – but they also need to make sure they’re home in time for dinner!

Tales From the Loop – The Boardgame is designed by Martin Takaichi and includes high-quality miniatures by Paolo Parente‘s Dust Studio.

To let players try out Tales From the Loop – The Board Game for themselves, Free League provides a Print ‘n Play kit of the current Alpha game prototype for download from the Kickstarter page. The Print ‘n Play kit includes four characters and one scenario to play.
