Out of Time - Tales from the Loop


There are rumors of a mechanical contraption that roams around the fields outside the small communities of the Mälaren Islands. At the same time, flyers asking for information on lost pets are increasing on the bulletin board outside the grocery store. On TV, the weatherman speaks of “random storm gusts” – and hasn’t there been severely bad weather the past few nights?

This is the beginning of a series of mysteries that lead the children out into the wilderness of The Loop and down into its secret tunnels. But what does this all have to do with the long-awaited summer camp, the magnetrine ship Susi Talvi, and the 1969 moon landing?

This book includes:

  • The Animal Ark. Where in the Kids investigate a missing pet and end up in a very strange storm.
  • Summer Camp. Summer break is finally here, and the Kids are sent to summer camp. But playing and swimming quickly turn to heart-racing terror and confusion when the children wake up in a completely different summer – in another time.
  • The Storm in the Hourglass. Curious exploration leads the Kids beyond the cordon, to unstable bubbles of time and space, whose origins lie somewhere in the depths of the Gravitron.
  • Classified. A new mystery landscape, full of hooks and intriguing characters.
  • The Mystery Machine. Create new mysteries, or take a look at your growing adventure landscape via an all-encompassing scenario and character generator.
  • Mix-CD of Mysteries. Eight short mysteries based on hit songs from the ‘90s.

Is this for Tales from the Loop (set in the 80s) or Things from the Flood (set in the 90s)?

I realise this is a very late reply, but I'm leaving it as it might help other people who are confused about which game this supplement is for...

The first two of the trilogy adventures are written for TFTL, with the third adventure (Storm in the Hourglass) being adaptable for TFTF. Here's what the book says about it (in a callout box on p11):


The third mystery takes place either
during the early autumn of 1989,
directly after the summer camp, or
possibly with a larger gap, in the
autumn of 1994, just before the
closure of The Loop, before the major
leakage that creates the conditions
in the supplementary, but also stand-
alone, role-playing book
Things from the Flood.

The players can then have played
as very young children (10-12 years
old) during the first and second
mysteries, who have now grown up and
become teenagers (15-17 years old).

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
