Update 4/11/2021 ​

Greeting servants of the First Lich!


So with the coming of spring, and public COVID vaccination happening right now, we wanted to give everyone an update on what’s going on with Hollow Dawn. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the COVID situation and from what we can tell, we think that by fall, we will be good to go with having an in-person event without masks.  There is no certainty of course, but I would like to turn this part of the post over specifically to Taylor and Jeff who have been looking into this.


First, there is no way to reach zero risk , but we want to share some of the resources and information we are using when we estimate that a “normal” LARP event in October will have comparatively low risk.

At this point we are looking at either a one-night, or a two-night camping event in the early October time frame. For this event, in order to attend, we are going to be requiring a valid proof of COVID vaccination that has occurred at least three weeks prior to the event (either a single shot of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or the second shot for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine).  The only exception will be for medical reasons and in that case, we will need to see proof of the exemption.  As a group we’ve weighed the pros and cons of each option, and we feel like this was the safest choice for our community.  

We know there are going to be many questions regarding this event that comes up.  For many of them we don’t have answers yet. We will try and get the FAQ below and do a town hall to answer any questions that we are able to.


In addition, we’d like to award anyone in our community, whether you are coming to what we are calling the “prototype” fall event or not 4 Service Points if you show us proof of vaccination.  We’ll release more details in the future  


If you are having issues finding an appointment for a COVID vaccination, please reach out to our community.  Many of us have resources to help find upcoming appointments and have been very successful in finding appointments for others.  Just reach out on Discord and I’m sure we can help point you in the right direction.  


Thank you!

Mike, Dia, Taylor, William, Jeff and Mac



Q: What if I already paid my game fee?

A: If you already paid your game fee, you can either request a refund, or we can hold it and roll it over to the game series next year.  You can reach out to for more information.  

Q: What if I donated to the gofundme?

A: Honest answer here, most of that money we've already spend to cover props and supplies leading up to the three games.  We would prefer to just have your rewards roll over to next year.  If you would like a refund, contact Mike at and he'll make sure you get reimbursed.
