Terminal City Tabletop Con: Vancouver, BC, March 29th-30th

So, will anyone be going to Terminal City Tabletop Con? (

If you DM two slots, you get in for free, so I've signed up to run two adventures I'm familiar with: The Haunting (Using a rules-light version of Call of Cthulhu 6e I bashed together years ago and aiming for a pulpy Indiana Jones/Robert E Howard) type of feel, and Exit 23, a Dark Matter intro adventure I absolutely adore (and have run multiple times).

Running through The Haunting with friends tonight was my first time DMing in quite a while (I think I've run one in-person game in the last five years?) so I figured I should stick with adventures I already have a good grasp of, and that I know I can get through in four hours.

Hey, good luck with that. It's not in my neck of the woods, so I can't attend, but I'd very much be interested in hearing more about your home-brewed, rules-lite framework.

It isn't much, I just throw out most of the combat rules. Everyone gets one move, and one action each turn, like in D&D. That simplifies the whole aiming/three attacks things, though it makes combat a lot less lethal. To be honest, I started doing it as the 6e books bury combat all over the place, and I was DMing it the first few times without actually having fully read the rules.
