Do you have any specifics on your Champions and CROSS games that people can look forward to being able to join at Nexus? Do you have any personal advice or thoughts on the convention, from your own personal experience, either with Nexus or any other convention? Maybe an idea of what players might need to bring, or little quirks to be aware of, or what kind of things are available, from your perspective?

Can you confirm this is the correct set of information?

Nexus is a new convention - this is the inaugural year. The above "set of information" is correct, including the link to register for a new account.

Players at a convention should bring dice, their writing implements of choice, and perhaps some paper. Players that want to be better prepared could bring rule books for game systems that they intend to play in and money (for food, drink, memorabilia, and dealer shopping). For most games, you can assume that characters and other supplies are provided unless it states otherwise.

There are still thousands of open seats for Nexus events - so it is definitely not too late to register and sign up for a quality assortment of games.

Quirks of conventions: with many conventions the player to game ratio is pretty low, so if you don't get your events in the first few minutes after event registration goes live, you will get scraps or nothing at all.
