After much discussion, we regret to inform you that we will be also be cancelling SIBCON 2020 and the rest of the 2020 COS Quest LARP season due to all the unknowns regarding the Corona Virus statewide precautions around gatherings and the multiple concerns of our members. Any pre-reg fees for Quest events can either be:

1) applied to 2020 events normally, receiving points and production (default unless you tell us otherwise)
2) applied to 2021 events/season as applicable
3) refunded in full.

Please continue to check the site or join our Facebook groups as the year unfolds to stay updated on when events will be planned in the future!

We hope you and your loved ones are doing everything you can to stay as healthy, safe, and prepared as possible, whether venturing out on a regular basis or staying at home. We thought we should follow up with a few updates based on the continuing precautions around COVID-19 and their effects on COS events.

COSCON 2020
Refunds have been processed for all con purchases. For ease of recordkeeping, we refunded 100% of all fees paid. If you did not receive your refund, please contact us at cons@circleofswords.com

We will keep the same con number and t-shirt logo for Coscon 2021 which will now be numbered Coscon XXXII (32). Because we refunded all payments, you will need to reorder your t-shirt for Coscon 2021 when registration opens up in December, but they’ll be the same design.

COS QUEST LARP
The COSCON Point Buy will be offered online through the website at the same rate; $6/point, max of 5. These will be available through April 30th, 2020. Attendance points for the con will not be available, nor will we hold the points raffle.

The April weekend event has been cancelled, however we will keep the pre-pay for the event available through April 30th, 2020. You will still receive points and production.

The 2020 Season Pass amount will remain the same and will still include the April event. The deadline has also been extended until April 30th, 2020.

The X-mas skill and prestige points are still available through March 31st and will not be extended.

If you haven't already, please take a moment to update your Plot Rotation in your profile here on the COS site. Takes a minute and will help us better prepare for relaunching the season once things calm down!

Thank you again for your continued support, and we will continue to provide updates as best we can. Hope to see you at the next COS event once everything (hopefully sooner than later) returns to normal!

We regret to inform you that we will be cancelling COSCON 2020and the April COS Quest LARP events this year due to the Corona Virus statewide precautions and the multiple concerns of our members. Currently the May 4-Day event is also at risk, but we will continue to monitor the situation and follow the statewide restrictions currently in place.

Please bear with us on refunds since it will be a long process to get all of them done. Luckily most of them are via PayPal so that should make it easier.

More details to follow, so please continue to check the site or join our Facebook groups for more information!
