TL;DR: A mixed anthology. The full length mysteries are strong, especially the first two. The mixtape mysteries are ideas I'd approach carefully. The blueprints give some nice ideas for scenarios, whilst the hacking the Loop chapter is a useful checklist of things to consider. As ever, this looks gorgeous with Stålenhag's art set in a clean, attractive layout. Recommended on the strength of the longer mysteries.

Our Friends the Machines & Other Mysteries is the first anthology of mysteries and ba

Tales From the Loop is one of the most exciting RPGs I've read in a long time, and it seems like it would be a ton of fun to run or to play. This book features several mysteries, including a fun bunch of mini-mysteries inspired by hit 80s songs. There's also some advice for tailoring your the game to your home town, instead of the two default towns the game provides.
The odd thing about these scenarios is that several of them seem related to the Loop in only the most tertiary way. I think that, i

The scenarios in this book are a bit odd, more extra-curricular mysteries than 100%-Loop-related mysteries. A few have very loose ties with the Loop, and a couple also feel a bit out of place (they go in dark places). I’m running one now (Horror Movie Mayhem) and I can also see they could have used a bit more playtesting, my players broke it 30 minutes in. That said, there are good hooks and ideas here, and I can see myself using two or three of them at the table. Even the mixtape hooks are intr ...more

It's a rather disappointing sourcebook that has a grand total of one mostly solid adventure (Our Friends the Machines), and a sprinkling of good ideas in otherwise middling material throughout the rest of it. My PDF version could have used some more proofreading, as there's plenty of typos and mistakes. The Mixtape of Mysteries section feels rushed, with certain paragraphs pretty much copy-pasted within the same subsection. The Norfolk Broads isn't a new UK-based setting, as the book advertises, ...more

Good set of mysteries to run with the evocative Tales From the Loop RPG. Enjoyed reading, will enjoy running, this.

This one was exactly what you'd expect.
Fraser Simons
It feels like some of these don’t jive with the tone and conceit of the main game, but some are pretty cool. Will see about giving these a go. But with Things From The Flood coming, I’d wager that game is more in line with my own experience (born in ‘85) and, in general, has a more appealing premise.
