Default THS at a con next year

I am considering demoing THS at a con next year.


Given Bladerunner 2049 and The Expanse have at worst been a fan suceess I think there might be some interest in the setting.

Any advice or thoughts?

The scenarios in Personnel Files 2-5 have all been run by Phil as convention one-shots.

A certain amount of "keep it simple", mostly. Which is not to say "deny the richness of the setting", but don't expect players to deal with all of it at once, on their character sheets.

The 4e Personnel Files books do indeed show what's worked for me, reasonably at least, in the past.

I have to say I thought the one with the kid detectives looked really appealing. Its set of contrasted personality types with associated sets of useful abilities was very well handled.
