To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Tales From the Loop tv series on Amazon Prime Video, Free League Publishing today announced a new starter set for their award-winning Tales From the Loop roleplaying game. The new boxed set, containing a new scenario called The Recycled Boy, is already available for pre-order.
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.
On April 3, the tv series based on Stålenhag's work will be launched on Amazon Prime Video, starring Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Paul Schneider (Parks and Recreation), and Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones).
Stålenhag's narrative art books Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood stunned the world with 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 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 has a cover featuring key art by Stålenhag made specifically for the tv series. Inside, it contains everything players need to get started:
- An illustrated rulebook explaining how to play the game
- The complete adventure called The Recycled Boy by Nils Hintze
- Five pre-generated characters ready to play
- A large, full-color map of land of the Loop
- Ten engraved custom dice
The starter set will be released in April, and it is already available for pre-order for only 248 SEK (approx. $27 USD) via a new dedicated website for the Tales From the Loop RPG. All pre-orders receive a full PDF of the game shortly after purchase. The starter set will be available in retail stores globally at launch.
