The sequel to the award winning Free League Publishing RPG, Tales from the Loop, is burning up Kickstarter with ten days still left in the project. Things from the Flood takes place in the 1990’s and is a bit darker in tone than the previous release. Now the Loop has been shut down but dire events have transpired and the player (now in their teens) have to investigate a slew of all new mysteries. Things from the Flood is over 2500% funded and you can reserve a copy, and all unlocked stretch goals, in PDF at the $22.00 pledge level or grab the physical book for a $39.19 pledge through October 9th. Backers will receive a Beta PDF before Christmas while the finished products are expected in February.
Personally, I loved Tales from the Loop (check out my review here) so I’m pretty excited to see what this sequel has to offer!
From Free League:
Welcome back to the Loop. Things are different now.
The world does not seem so innocent anymore.
Its the ‘90s and the once mighty Loop has been shut down, the experiment abandonded and the land bought by Krafta, a powerful corporation. You are no Kids anymore, but Teens trying to find your way in a decade of change – both within and around you.
The Flood has transformed the once pastoral islands into a dark marshland. Some say that the dark water pouring out of the ground comes from within the Loop itself. Machines are afflicted by a strange virus turning them unreliable and dangerous.
Still, your lives go on as before. You go to school, fall miserably in love, try to do everything possible to fend of boredom. When you hear about other teens going missing, and even turning up dead, you realize its time to gather the group again.
One way or another you fill find out what these Things from the Flood really are.
Now, it’s time to return to the Loop and continue the story. In Things from the Flood you play Teens in the 1990s – a decade of change and disaster. You’re still balancing day to day life with solving exciting mysteries with your friends. But this is a darker time, and the stakes are higher.
The book will have approximately 200 pages, in the US Letter format.
