Registration

To begin registration, follow this link: https://goo.gl/TVA1Hq

Tier 1 Registration is $50. This gains entry to the convention and all of the events.

Tier 2 Registration is $65. This gains entry to the convention and all of the events as well as some fun swag. Purchasing this level of registration will net you a custom deck of challenge cards that contains one set of 1-10 cards, as well as two sets of custom rock/paper/scissors cards, all in a tin carrying case. In addition, you will receive a custom 17 oz., double walled, stainless steel canteen water bottle.

You will be able to opt-in to volunteering in various ways at the convention. This will be followed up by the Volunteers and Prestige Lead. If you want to volunteer but you don’t opt-in at registration, you can still email the Volunteers and Prestige Lead at

You will also be able to indicate your intention to attend various events at the convention. These aren’t binding. It’s just a way that we can gauge the intended audience for each event.

If you wait to pay for registration at the door, the price will be $60, which will gain entry to the convention and all of the events. We don't expect there to be any additional Tier 2 swag items available for purchase, so if you want to make sure you get these custom items you'll need to pre-register for the Tier 2 package.

The items on this schedule are now finalized. They may be changed due to extreme need or at the discretion on the NCA, but all of the times and events should be considered final. If you have specific questions, comments, or concerns, you can contact me directly at <Ecre.event.lead@ec.mindseyesociety.org>.

The ST Lead for the event is Justin Sisson, who can be reached at <ecre.st.lead@ec.mindseyesociety.org>. The games that will be played are as follows:

  • Vampire the Masquerade: Camarilla / Anarch / Independent Alliance, Storyteller Jason Herman

  • Werewolf the Apocalypse, Storyteller Paul Marchant
