One of the things I loved about last night's #TalesFromTheLoop game, was that all of the following scenes were added to the plot, but were just as important to the narrative as the main story...
1. Two of the teens went to Echo Base, the local comic book shop, to check out the owner's preview of the brand new Nintendo Entertainment System, and after playing for several hours, they ended up missing their curfew and getting into trouble.
2. The high school bully stole one of the PCs junky servitor robot (that he had salvaged from the local rust yard) and broke off its legs, but after learning that it was not the nerdy characters robot, he was convinced to give it back and chip in a couple of bucks to fix it.
3. The group role-played going into a shop to buy some improvisational weapons (lighter and a aerosol can), but used the cover story of trying to buy cigarettes just to get the lighter as a fallback. It worked brilliantly.
I really do appreciate how the game mixes the mundane and ordinary teen experiences with the extraordinary of the world to create a unique play environment. Lots of fun. Great job @FriaLigan and @Modiphius. We had a blast playing last night!
And for the record, @Dan_Servo and @erikmona playing teen D&D nerds is kinda adorable. Watching them work out 1st ed stats for a robot bird familiar while in character was kinda great!
